Hip-hop veteran YOYO has been added to the nationally syndicated CAFE MOCHA RADIO. The ICE CUBE protégé has signed on to be a permanent co-host of the top-rated weekend show targeting women.
Best known for classic rap hits like "Can't Play With My YoYo," "The Bonnie & Clyde Theme" with CUBE and "I Wanna Be Down" with BRANDY, QUEEN LATIFAH and MC LYTE; YOYO will join original CAFE MOCHA hosts LONI LOVE of "The Real" and broadcast veteran ANGELIQUE PERRIN on the syndicated show.
"I'm ecstatic to join LONI and ANGELIQUE; these women are leaders in their industries, who openly and freely share their personal and professional insights weekly with listeners," YOY said. "As CAFE MOCHA continues to evolve, I'm looking forward to adding my flavor with anecdotes about my life as an entertainer, mother, philanthropist, and educator."
"I couldn't be more excited about the addition of YOYO to our roster of dynamic women," CAFE MOCHA RADIO creator/Exec. Producer SHEILA ELDRIDGE said. "People know about YOYO the music artist, but on CAFE MOCHA, you'll get to experience YOLANDA the mother, the politician's wife, the literacy advocate and learn about the other social issues she's passionate about. Besides, YOYO is no stranger to radio, having previously hosted her own show on KDAY (93.5 FM) in L.A."
YOYO will replace MC LYTE, who left the show last month to continue her career and philanthropy efforts with the HIP HOP SISTERS FOUNDATION. "Not only am I excited about what the future holds as I expand my entertainment empire, but I'm blessed to pass the torch to my hip-hop sister and longtime friend," MC LYTE said. "I couldn't be more proud that she has chosen to join the CAFE MOCHA family."
