Alter Native is the first of many music-based socio-cultural diaries that double as a formal introduction to YOM and his works.

Speaking in an interview with Graphic Showbiz Yom said he chose the name Alter Native because he believes it is a complete representation of his identity.

“Though a native of this land there are certain things I cannot overlook. I need to be able to voice out certain things I see wrong through my poems. It is sometimes not pleasant but I need to do it for my mother Ghana”. he said.

Come the month of May, Yom will be staging a concert dubbed the Alter Native concert where he will be showcasing a diversity of Ghanaian talent in the area of music and art.
