The versatile disc jockey and radio presenter DJ Blow finally resigned from YFM last Wednesday, June 4th after some five and a half years of dedicated and professional service. As one of the pioneers of YFM, DJ Blow brought the world famous ‘Weekend Groove” to add the much needed and hugely successful mature edge to the youthful YFM. William Nanka- Bruce III, as he is known in private life, has been entertaining listeners on radio since 1997 when he joined Groove FM on his arrival from the UK with his impeccable music mixes, great delivery, a good ear for music and a rather vast music library.
DJ Blow opted to specialise in the Old School music genre during the late 1990?s when he joined Vibe FM, and by the time he joined Atlantis radio in 2006, he distinguished himself amongst peers and was acknowledged and hailed as the King Of Old School in this part of the world.
“The Grandmaster”, as he is affectionately known by his discerning loyal listeners, took the helm at YFM in March 2013, first as Director of Monitoring and Compliance, and later as General Manager until his resignation. It was under his stewardship and personal control that YFM organised “Loud In Gh” one of the largest and professional concerts Accra had ever witnessed, at the Accra Sports Stadium.
As co-Director of Tag Team Ltd and DJ of the world famous Tulip Mirror Ball, DJ Blow has captivated discerning patrons of the mature persuasion both on the dance floor and on radio in a manner that has not been seen before in this country. As one of the most endorsed shows on radio amongst discerning audiences it is only natural that there has been a lot of speculation and rumour about where DJ Blow will take the ‘Weekend Groove” as well as his broadcast and event management talents. A number of top radio stations are being mentioned as keen contenders to snap him up however we shall all have to wait for the dust to settle from the scramble before we know for sure which frequency gets to host the old school maestro.
When contacted, DJ Blow could not elude the fact that he was considering his options now and would definitely be back on the airwaves God willing soon after the World Cup. Anticipation of where and when the Grandmaster will return is very high, and we promise to break the news to you first. One thing is for sure and that is Ghana will soon experience the next level of his creative force as the spirit of the good old school music lives on.
