He first started his own show in Kweyol on Radio St. Lucia where he produced music features, translated and read news from English, prepared and recorded commercials and public service announcements, conduct interviews and host discussions in Kweyol. But it was the traditional Kweyol culture of Saint Lucia that he immersed himself in - La Woz, La Magwit, Solo, Sewenal, Abwe. For nearly 20 years Popo traversed St. Lucia from North to South and East to West and all in-between to record Kweyol folk music and to those who embraced St. Lucian culture. He is a member of the Monsignor Patrick Anthony Folk Research Centre. In 1980, Mr Popo was honoured by the St. Lucia Media Workers Association (SLMWA) for Best Kweyol Programme for his broadcast of poems in Kweyol by St. Lucian authors. In 1990-1991, Mr. Popo was awarded a Diploma after he completed studies through GEREC (Groupe d’Etudes et de Recherches en Espace Creolophone) at the Universite des Antilles et de la Guyane, Martinique. He has worked for a number of radio stations in neighbouring Martinique and when he returned to St. Lucia served as their clocal correspondent for news about St. Lucia. In 2017, he received a “Legacy Award” from the organizers of the Kweyol Music competition for: “promoting our Kweyol heritage through radio broadcasting”. In 2020, the Government of St. Lucia presented Mr. Popo with a Les Piton Medal (GOLD) for his untiring service to push forward St. Lucia Cultural traditions and Kweyol music and for his service to the people of St. Lucia as a Kweyol Broadcaster.
