Ace presenter and DJ,Andy Dosty has raised concerns over the removal of his show from the programme line-up on Angel fm(Kumasi) by the owner,Dr.Kwaku Oteng. The show which used to air on sundays at 6pm called its panel members ‘PARLIAMENTARIANS’ with Hon.Andy Dosty as speaker.
Grapevine has it that, Dr.Oteng had doubts about the commitment and seriousness of the speaker due to his frequent absence which he attributed to business. A panelist and actor,Bernard Aduse-Poku(KOOMUSUO) issued the statement below :
I think i’ve kept my silence for a while now and this is the time to break it. First and foremost on behalf of all of us on the entertainment show, i sincerely apologize to you all our august and cherished listeners for the inability of the show been aired since the beginning of this year. it is so sad that we have not been able to paint to u the true picture of the prevailing circumstances.
Here are few of them:
The owner of the station called the producer of the show to call it off for reasons best known to him (owner).The attitude from the powers that be at [the] station towards the show suggests the show is irrelevant to the ideals and core principles on which the radio station was set up.
I think the impact of the show is not a matter to the powers that be at the radio station hence why no effort is been made to bring it back!!! These are a few i can share with you folks but let me say this, everyone who has sat in as a “parliamentarian” on the A.E.S has done so purely for the love of the show and the agenda to have a proper platform to educate, inform and entertain people on issues relating to showbiz in this part of the country on course.
In the mean time keep your fingers crossed, frantic effort is being made to get the ENTERTAINMENT SHOW on air soonest.
This show is sure the hottest entertainment show in the garden city and beyond bringing together talents from all aspects of the entertainment industry. When Andy Dosty was asked if he thinks his frequent absence is the cause,he said
If Joe Lacka as the main host of the sports show travel always,does that mean that the show must be called off? Or do u want to tell me that no one is competent to host it? If Dr Oteng knows that our show is good and makes more listeners he wldnt call it off.I have a contact with his station,so he is my boss(for now) so I just have to obey him.
