Power 97.9 FM’s broadcaster Salifu Maase also known as Mugabe has, for the second time, won the Radio and Television Personality (RTP) best Radio Talkshow Host award.
The host of Inside Politics on Power FM won against Asempa FM’s Philip Osei Bonsu and other talkshow hosts in the national capital and some parts of the country.
The firebrand presenter known for saying it-as-it-is was elated on Saturday night after receiving the award.
“I dedicate this award to the second coming of John Mahama,” Mugabe said after receiving award and thanked his fans for the overwhelming support.
The event which took place at the Kempisky Hotel saw other top journalists and broadcasters win some awards for their outstanding performance in the year under review.
Head of Power FM news Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman was one of the awardees of the night. He won the best Radio Newscaster of the year (Akan) award.
Before the award, Mr Ofosu Agyeman had been nominated in the same category in 2018 when he joined Power FM.
Ofosu Agyeman was outstanding in his line of duty, covering high profile cases in court coupled with anchoring Power FM’s major news bulletin.
During the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus, Daakyehene toured most parts of the country to bring to listeners efforts made by the government and waste management giant Zoomlion Ghana Limited to curb the spread of the virus.
He covered the disinfection of hospitals, markets, schools and various public places from Accra to Bolgatanga at the peril of his life.
To him, journalism is a calling and he is here to serve Ghana through accurate reportage that brings development.
Call it development journalism and you won’t be far from what Daakyehene does on radio.
Daakyehene, a clergyman, sees the award as “wake-up call” and has pledged to serve his country as far as he has life.
