Popular Television personality and satirist Kwaku Sintim Misa, popularly known as KSM has disclosed that he loves how the host of Dwaboase on Power 97.9 FM, Kwame Minkah anchors his radio programme.
KSM who was speaking to Agyemang Prempeh on Legends, a personality profile aired on TV XYZ at 5 PM every Sunday, could not come to terms why, at a time most radio and TV personalities lacked depth in national matters, Kwame could exhibit such intelligence when it comes to current affairs.
The ace broadcaster and filmmaker disclosed he would sometimes tune in to Dwabose on Power FM in the morning and be astonished at Kwame Minkah’s wit interwoven with dexterity on air.
He however acknowledged there are a couple of radio talk show hosts in the national capital who are good at their trade, Kwame’s intelligence makes him believe radio in Ghana has a future and that there are journalists of his ilk who are driven by the will of the people and not by the selfish interest of politicians as can be experienced in some firms.
Asked whether listening to radio in recent times was still fun as it was on his return to the motherland from New York some 2 decades ago, KSM who is also known as the ‘King of Comedy’ said there are a tad more ignorant persons on the airwaves these he was quick to single out a few. He mentioned “Minkah” as he tried to recollect his first name.
“Minkah. What’s his name?…Kwame Minkah, Power FM! I listen to him and the questions he is asking; damn! that’s an intelligent man right there,” KSM stated with praises on the man who also hosts XYZ Tonight on TV XYZ every Monday and Wednesday at 8 PM.
Kwame Minkah born Prince Minkah joined XYZ Broadcasting in 2017 to host current affairs programmes both on TV and radio when the company was rebranding.
He started hosting the Morning Xpress on Radio XYZ 93.1 and the Ete Sen when the station decided to run all programmes in Akan. In 2019 he hosted Dwaboase on Power FM when Radio XYZ was shut down by the government.
As a result-oriented journalist, Minkah prides himself on the transformation that takes place when he lifts challenges confronting the average Ghanaian.
