We live in a country whereby parents dictate for their wards on the kind of career path they should choose. Nana Kwame’s story is not different but he did not allow his parents to set the pace for him.
Veteran radio broadcaster, Nana Kwame Adjei Bohyen has disclosed in a recent interview with the News Hunter Magazine that his parents were not in support of choosing a career as a radio presenter.
He revealed that his father disowned him for giving up on their decision for him to become a teacher in the future.
According to Nana Kwame, his father’s actions did not stop him from pursuing a career as a broadcaster because he had passion for the job.
It was a delight to know that his mum was always on his side to provide him all the necessary support.
“My journey into this profession has not been easy…my dad disowned me but thanks be to God and my mum who gave me the needed support to excel. It was not easy, I faced a lot of challenges but I did not give up on what I have chosen to do.
“I always want to be the mouthpiece for the needy, the voiceless and the weaker ones. I have thirteen (13) years on this field,” he stated.
Nana Kwame Adjei Bohyen advised wannabe journalists/radio presenters to educate themselves very well before venturing into this field.
Nana Kwame Adjei Bohyen who was nominated in the 2016 edition of the RTP Awards currently plies his trade at Ark Fm Radio Limited in Sunyani, capital of the Brong Ahafo Region.
