Accra, 3rd September 2012: Mamprobi will come alive this weekend as the Y FM entertainment crew hits the suburb of Accra with the 4th edition of its coveted event, the Y FM Area Codes Jam. The YFM Area Codes Jam is a bi-annual musical concert organised by Ghana's urban radio station Y FM for any area that comes top in a keenly contested competition held for all listeners of the station.
Venue for the event is normally determined by listeners across the city. Listeners are required to text to the short code 1724 on all other telecommunication networks and 1824 on Airtel indicating their area of choice with acronyms such as DC for Dansoman, TM for Tema, TN for Teshie Nungua and DZ for Dzorwulu etc. The Area Codes Jam is then held at the location that emerges as the top area of choice by listeners through text message votes. The Jam is usually held on a busy street of the winning area.
Sponsored by MTN, the event is held to appreciate and celebrate all loyal listeners and fans of the station for the young and young at heart. This year's is the 4th edition and it is slated for Mamprobi, a suburb of Accra on the 8th of September at the Salvation Army Park.
