Unconfirmed reports reaching the entertainment desk of ghananewsonline.com.gh indicate that Madam Afia Kwarteng Asamani, (Authentic Mama) of Atinka Media Village has parted ways with station where she was a newscaster and lead presenter of some of their flagship programs.
Though she would not confirm or deny the rumor when contacted, Authentic Mama’s alleged resignation has come as a big shock to many of her fans who claim they never saw it coming.
Some say they have become addicted to the Atinka Media Village (Atinka TV/Atinka FM), a subsidiary of the Tobinco Group of Companies due to Afia’s good looks and professionalism anytime she is on air.
A post on her Facebook wall on Wednesday suggests to the public that apparently she has been going through a lot of rivalry with some of the station’s presenters who see her as a tough nut and a stiff challenge and perhaps a threat to their shine.
Deep-throat sources close to Authentic Mama say she endured several bouts of frustration while juggling between serving as the Host of popular series, Tumhari Phaki, and as a parliamentary correspondent for the station and news casting.
Afia’s experience in the Ghanaian media space spans over a decade, specifically in news anchoring, TV shows, and parliamentary reporting, among others.
In her last interview with a life and style TV show, Afia revealed that she has never step foot in a Senior High School (SHS). This not withstanding, the award-winning Afia has broken all glasses, climbed the academic ladder, and is currently a Masters Student at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ).
Her fans are anxious about her next moves. Watch this space.
