Veteran highlife artist, Papa Yankson, stunned patrons at Saturday night’s maiden edition of the Exclusive Men of the Year (EMY) Awards when he emerged from the crowd in a wheelchair to perform.
Papa Yankson put together an exciting performance that got many people dancing before the ultimate award was presented.
Benjamin Paapa Kofi Yankson was born on June 22, 1944, at Winneba. His latent music flair was discovered at the funeral of a neighbour.
He landed his first music contract during his mother’s funeral. And for more than 30 years Paapa Yankson has produced music that has brought life to many dead souls.
Paapa Yankson has more than 15 albums to his credit and it is not surprising that some young hiplife artistes keep knocking at his door to feature him on their albums.
He has taught and performed in many countries around the world including the US, Canada, Belgium, Britain, Germany, Holland, Nigeria, Benin and Cote d’Ivoire.
