Born in Tema Community 5, YAD started his radio journey in 1995 with the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) as a Disc Jockey for Greg Mingle and gradually developed interest for presenting. He worked there for some time and later moved to Life FM at Nkawkaw where helped built the station in 1999.
Some years later, YAD worked with Sky FM and Chris FM in Sunyani and Berekum respectively. He later joined Classic FM in Techiman before moving to Kumasi where worked at Fox fm and hosted Fox Rush Hour at that time but after some time he descended to the Capital. His appearance in Accra saw him at Happy FM.
