Parliament for Suame Constituency and the majority leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu or business mogul, One Achamfour or owners of 2pm express or tabeaa herbal company.

The confusion and allegations came at the back of the shocking porching of some renowned and seasonal journalists in the country to the station in the shortest period of time including, Political Talk Show host, Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye, Sampson K Nyamekye, Emrantehene, Sometimer Oto Acheampong, Ante Naa, Kofi Appiah and others. Out of this list, Emrantehene aka man88 has confirmed the news and Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye has also confirmed his signing with the new station on his official Facebook page. The rest has either refuse to comment or talk about it.

Meanwhile, management of the station has called on the general public to disregard the unfounded allegations in the public domain that the promising station belongs any of the names mentioned especially Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu because the station is sited at Suame and has some political dimension.

According to them, the public should focus on the good programs the station is bringing on board in shaping the national discourse and promoting socio- economic development as with time, the true owners will be known.

” Kyei Mensah Bonsu, One Achamfour, tabeaa herbal company and owners of 2M express are not the owners of Sompa Fm as is alleged.

What we can tell for a fact is that whoever is behind the station is definitely filty rich as it is rumor that some of the presenters are alleged to be taking an unresistible mouth watering packages.
