Two years after popular TV personality, Nana Aba Anamoah was engulfed in a photoshopped controversy which led to her resigning from TV3, the TV network she has worked for over 10 years, she has broken her silence on the issue.
The lady who was the most Famous face on TV3 for the past 10 years who is now with EIB Networks’s GhOne TV speaking with about the controversy said she is happy it happened.
“I am happy it happened. I think that it happened for a reason because it gave me the chance to move on. For four years, I had been trying to leave but I wasn’t successful because my bosses always found one reason or the other to make me stay.”
“I am so happy about it and I feel that I should probably have moved earlier and not listened to all the stories that made me stay,” Nana Aba Anamoah said.
“But now I’ve moved to a different brand with different people and this is an even bigger platform. So now, I’m getting to understand radio, sometimes I go to Starr FM, I go to Heritage to understand how newspapers operate. I’ve actually opened up more and I’m trying to learn a lot of different things,” she said.
Explaining why she joined EIB network of all the well-established TV stations that were dying to have her on board, Nana Aba Anomoah said:
“It’s been great. I could have decided to go to any of the other media houses that were seeking my signature at the time but I chose GHOne because it’s a very young station and I wanted to make an impact, I wanted to be part of their story. I wanted to associate my name with them.
“I didn’t want to go to a station that already had a name, basically adding up to the numbers. I wanted a place where I would put my experience to work, to push a brand and I am happy with what we have done together so far.”
“I know we still have a long way to go but in the space of one or two years, people talk about us. I am so excited to be working with all these amazing people,” she said.
“It was an eye-opener for me. I would want everyone to be loyal to their employers but in being loyal, they should also try to make themselves happy because even your superiors also look out for themselves sometimes. You should be just a bit selfish and put yourself first sometimes.”
“That is the mistake I made at TV3, I put the station ahead of my interest all the time but when it came to the most critical aspect of my life, they turned their backs on me.”
“I want people to know that in being loyal and faithful to their employers, they must also do the things they believe would make them better people.”
Her issues started with social media and it would have been only logical that she would tone it down but Nana Aba says no.”
“I am still the same. It was a joke and people who understand social media understand what trolling is. So all of those trolls, I wasn’t affected by them. I couldn’t be bothered and I was having a laugh reading all the comments.”
“I troll and still get trolled. I give it so I can take it. In fact, I think my followers on Twitter and Instagram have rather increased. I will not stop doing the silly things I do on social media.” Nana Aba Anamoah concluded.
