Published

on

A seasoned writer and speaker, Derrick Schandorf Ayirebi-Acquah, popularly known as ‘Paa Kwesi Schandorf’ has parted ways with TV Africa, after over a year of working with the Accra based television station.

Announcing his departure on his various social media platforms, the former Labone School Prefect expressed his gratitude for working with the station and conveyed his appreciations to the management of the company, his colleagues and followers alike.

Prior to his final day at TV Africa, Paa Kwesi Schandorf was a news editor who executed his duties with exceptional diligence. Based on his unique writing abilities, he initiated an online news portal for TV Africa, which saw steady progress under his watch.

He was also a regular face on TV Africa’s prime time bulletin, where he read the news with his regular command over the English language. He also anchored the mid-afternoon news and was the first to have begun the station’s morning news on the Breakfastlive morning show.

Even though his departure has come as a surprise to many, scores of individuals on social media have applauded his efforts and expressed their well wishes in that regard. Others have also congratulated him for his efforts and prayed for his longstanding BBC dreams to become a reality.

During his stay, Schandorf was also the co-host of TV Africa’s flagship programme, the Breakfastlive morning show, where he hosted with his former colleague, Rosleyn Felli, who left for Joy Prime about two weeks ago.

While on the morning show, he conducted many solid interviews with presidential candidates, Members of Parliament, government officials, party functionaries and a host of other prominent individuals in academia, showbiz and the corporate community etc.

He also played a lead role in the station’s coverage of the 2020 general election, where he served as a co-host and a producer in that regard. Even though his next move is unclear, pockets of rumours have linked him to some of the big names in the country.

Schandorf’s writing prowess, intellect, creativity and outstanding command over the English language are some of the fine attributes his followers always admire and applaud.

Published

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
