Power 97.9 FM’s broadcaster Salifu Maase also known as Mugabe has, for the second time, received 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 talk show hosts in the national capital and some parts of the world.
The firebrand presenter known for telling it-as-it-is was elated on Saturday night after winning the award.
“I dedicate this award to the second coming of John Mahama,” Mugabe said after receiving the award and thanked his fans for the overwhelming support.
The event which took place at the Kempinski Hotel saw other top journalists and broadcasters win several awards for their outstanding success in the year under review.
Head of Power FM news Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman was one of the awardees of the night. He received the best Radio Newscaster of the year (Akan) award.
Before the prize, Mr. Ofosu Agyeman had been nominated in the same category in 2018 when he joined Power FM.
Ofosu Agyeman was excellent in his line of service, covering high profile cases in court coupled with anchoring Power FM’s main news bulletin.
During the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus, Daakyehene toured most parts of the world to put 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 existence.
To him, journalism is a calling and he is here to serve Ghana through accurate reportage that brings growth.
Call it growth journalism and you won’t be far from what Daakyehene does on tv.
Daakyehene, a clergyman, sees the award as a “wake-up call” and has vowed to serve his country as long as he has lived.
