He is the new face in the Ghanaian music fraternity and a fast-rising social media sensation for his colourful yet comical music video ‘Ataa Adwoa’ which is the new rave.
A very comical figure; slender, a unique sense of fashion, red-dyed hair, peculiar dance moves and overall, his name Bosom P Yung.
As unusual and interesting as his name is and sounds in the Ghanaian local language, the artist has a pretty wonderful reason for his name ‘Bosom’, which means ‘lesser god’.
In an interview on TV3’s NewDay, he told host Berla Mundi that he got his name from the Bible, because we (humans), according to the creation story, were created in God’s image, thus, makes us smaller gods, because we are replicas of God himself.
He further explained, “for P Yung, the P stands for Prince which is my name and I chose Yung because I am the youngest son of my family.”
When asked his motive behind choosing ‘Bosom’ he revealed: “in our local parlance, we strongly believe that everything from or by a deity or ‘bosom’ is scary and so is my musical career which I want to be so scary and different.”
His music is new, fresh and different, and we wish him the best.
