His achievements cannot be due not only to Accra Academy. The fact of the matter is that after his academic pursuit he has learnt fro the feet of experienced hands in radio broadcasts such as Tommy Annan Forson my idol. After presenting his true, factual and sometimes strange and interesting stories, he often serves a good menu for the day known as…………….. The other day last week he dropped one such…………….. That is very memorable. OPANIN KOFI AGYEKUM regular panel member on peace fm and radio universe
