Ms Abena Kay, voice of the vulnerable
One of Ghana’s fast-rising Radio Personalities, Ms Lordina Abena Konadu Yiadom is living a childhood dream of becoming the voice of the vulnerable and providing the platform for the less privileged.
Known as Abena Kay in the media space, the young, vibrant and eloquent lady is the hostess of Pink Show on Kumasi-based YFM.
The Pink Show was specially created to empower, encourage and acknowledge distinguished women in society.
It provides the platform for a hearty conversation with women with the intention to motivate the younger female generation with their stories.
The show also allows Abena to express her concerns about the problems in society especially with regard to the less privileged.
She believes that society can do better by accepting and providing a helping hand to the vulnerable and less privileged.
Ms Abena started radio in 2017 as a co-hostess for the first edition of YFM Mid-Morning Radio show. She was later made hostess of the maiden ‘Pick N Play’ aired every Saturday.
Before YFM, she worked with Silver FM as a panelist on the Silver Anigye and Kessben Music Plus as a pundit and a sit-in-hostess.
In 2019, she was offered the role of Drive Time Show hostess on Focus FM and KNUST’s campus-based radio where she served for three years. She moved back to YFM in March 2022 to resume her role as Pick N Play hostess.
She loves to talk and command listening which got her into taking up the emceeing job and gradually carving a niche as one of the best in the industry.
That aligns with her dream of being the voice that speak for those who do not have power or the platform.
As a professional MC, she puts a lot of effort into making every event special and memorable for her clients.
Abena Konadu Yiadom hails from Ntonso-Aboaso in the Ashanti region and lived most of her growing years in Kumasi. She is the first born of four girls and committed to making life comfortable for her younger siblings.
She had her Senior High School (SHS) education at Amaniampong SHS and later had a Diploma in Media Studies at Premier Media College.
At her leisure time, she would listen to music, especially ones from her favourite, Sarkodie. She considers herself as an ardent fun of Sarkodie. She also loves Kinaata, Nathaniel Bassey and would jump on any Cece Winans song for inspiration.
She is a devoted Christian and her favourite scripture is Joshua 21:45,”Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; everyone was fulfilled.”
Her favourite quote is “You cannot skip the stages of life. For your peace of mind and a success that lasts, you need to go through the mill. Grow through what you go through. That’s life.”
