Like they have been doing ahead of the Football Transfer deadlines for sometime now, Joy Sports will be having the 2019 summer “Transfer Countdown” show on Thursday, the 8th.
The show is meant to give followers of Joy Sports an insight into business done by the various top European teams during the current transfer window, with eyes on the last minute movements of players, with focus on Ghanaian and African players.
The “Transfer Countdown” show will be hosted by Gary Al-Smith and George Addo Jnr and it will air on the Joy News channel (DStv 421), Joy 99.7 FM, and will stream on myjoyonline.com from 3 to 6 pm (GMT).
Ahead of the three hour show, Joy Sports has released an official promotional video to wet the appetite of its patrons. The video, shot at the Sphinx and Giza Pyramids features Joy Sports Team’s poster presenters, the ever-articulate Gary Al-Smith and the unassuming yet witty George Addo Jnr.
The Joy Sports branded costume, the settings and the light manner in which the presenters went about their acts gave the video a very special feel and an exciting to watch.
Below is the full video, sourced from Gary Al-Smith’s facebook wall.
Popular comedian and actor, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng known widely as Funny Face has descended heavily on Accra FM’s Nana Romeo for what the comedian described as a “stupid question” posed by the presenter.
In an interview on his “Ayekoo Ayekoo” Show on Accra FM on Thursday, Nana Romeo inquired from the “Children’s President” whether former Arsenal and Man City striker, Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor was his gay partner.
“I want you to clear the speculation about you, people are saying Adebayor was your gay partner, how true is that and have you heard it before?”, Nana Romeo asked.
The question didn’t go down well with Funny Face and he didnt mince words about it. He denied ever being in any sexual relationship with the football star and went ahead to say few words to the presenter.
“In fact, if you are a radio presenter who asks such funny questions, in all honesty, you are very unwise. You are in showbiz and people say things to tarnish others’ image but for you to ask this same question, you are really not intelligent”, Funny Face noted in pidgin.
Nana Romeo has a knack for asking unintelligent questions on his show. In June, he was equally disgraced by GhOne’s Nana Aba Anamoah for asking the celebrated broadcaster whether she would have love to date Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie if he wasn’t married. Like Funny Face, Nana Aba also didn’t let the opportunity to chastise the presenter pass.
Below is a video of the interview between Nana Romeo and Funny Face.
Joy FM and Multimedia Group’s award winning investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has called it quits from the Koklomlemle-based media conglomerate.
Manasseh’s resignation comes barely a week after the National Media Commission (NMC) described his controversial documentary “Militia in the heart of the Nation” as misleading and a misrepresentation.
In a post on social media and his personal website, the “Bongo Boy” expressed his gratitude to the Multimedia Group for their support for him for his over 6 years stay with them.
Below is the full statement:
“I wish to announce my resignation from The Multimedia Group.
I thank management of company for the opportunity to work with what in my view is the most credible, influential, impactful and daring media organistion in Ghana. I thank them for their support and encouragement all these years. It is no doubt that if I were to work again in a media house in Ghana, I would choose The Multimedia Group.
I also wish to thank all who have supported me in diverse ways since November 2012 when I joined The Multimedia Group. To the audience of The Multimedia Group and the sources who helped me in my work, I am eternally grateful.
I will continue to serve Ghana as a freelance investigative journalist and dedicate more time to the writing of books“
