One of the media giants in Ghana is the Multimedia Group Ltd. The company has over the years nurtured many of the popular faces and names in the media industry.
But over the years, Multimedia has lost some of the big names they had in their company for one reason or the other. This massive loss affected the company in a way but as a media giant, they always bounce back.
Ghpage has put together 10 of the biggest names in the media industry who have ditched Multimedia after years of service and nurturing.
Harry Adwoa Yeboah Asiamah Kusi aka Ohemaa Woyeje
Born Nana Yeboah Asiamah, Ohemaa Woyeje was one of the biggest names at Multimedia. She served the company for 6 years
Ohemaa Woyeje was the host of Adom FM mid-morning show “Work and Happiness” and she was good at it. The talented presenter resigned in January 2019.
Although she didn’t speak on why she resigned at the time, she has been throwing subtle jabs alleging the manager is the cause of her and others’ resignation. Ohemaa Woyeje now works at Accra based Angel FM owned by Dr. Kwaku Oteng.

Manasseh Azure Awuni
After 7 years of service to Multimedia Group as an Investigative journalist for Joy Fm, Manasseh Azure Awuni resigned from Multimedia on 3rd August 2019.
Manasseh resigned a few days after his much published investigative piece “Militia In The Heart Of The Nation” was released.

Naa Ashorkor was the host of A2Z show on Joy Fm. In May 2020, Ghanaians got the shock of their lives when she announced that her contract with Multimedia has been terminated.
As to why she was laid off, we can’t be sure but it might have something to do with the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has affected the revenue of many companies leading to many companies laying off employers. Before Multimedia, Naa Ashorkor worked with EIB Network.
