Two years after losing his place on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show to Daniel Dadzie, myghairwaves.com can confirm that former host, Kojo Yankson has staged a surprise comeback. Even though the rumour mill was rife over the weekend that Kojo was returning to the Show, myghairwaves.com decided to be skeptical about it, for good reasons.
However, with Kojo hosting the Joy SMS on Monday and Tuesday, we can confirm that he has fully taken over the Show, once again. He will lead a team of three – including Witson Amoah and Animwaa Anim-Addo whose major target will be to help the SMS reclaim his past glory as number one in Accra. As it is now, they are behind the Citi Breakfast Show on Citi FM.
Kojo, also known as the Morning Man was re-assigned away from the SMS after he came under intense criticism for his reportage on a gas explosion in Atomic, Accra. In his report, Kojo Yankson had claimed that the source of the fire which resulted in the gas explosion was caused by a khebab vendor. A claim many did not agree with.
In the ensuing brouhaha, Kojo was re-assigned away from the Super Morning Show until his comeback yesterday.
Daniel Dadzie held himself remarkably well during his two-year ride on the Joy SMS. He began on a very bright note and steer the Super Morning Show to win the RTP Morning Show of the Year in 2018, himself winning the Radio Morning Show Host of the Year. However, recent competition from the team at the Citi Breakfast Show on Citi FM means Joy FM had to re-strategize to keep up. Daniel has since been re-assigned to Joy Prime, to champion the new branding efforts of the TV Station.
“I am excited about this new move. I can’t wait to be a part of the Joy Prime story. The team is excited and there’s a lot in store for viewers and you will love it,” Daniel said about his new role.
