A 2017 Mandela Washington Fellow, Philip Osei Bonsu has won the Political Programme of the Year at the 25th GJA Awards.
Ghana’s most listened to late afternoon political, social and current affairs talk show, ‘EKOSIISEN’ has been adjudged the Political Program of the Year 2019 at the 25th GJA Awards held at the Muvenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
This is the first time EKOSIISEN has picked an award at the annual GJA Awards.
In all a total of 64 journalists were awarded in several categories. It was a night to celebrate the men and women behind the microphones and cameras telling compelling stories.
It becomes the second major award won by the show in less than two years. Last year, EKOSIISEN was named the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana’s Radio Program of the Year 2018.
The host of the show who doubles as the Programs Manager of Asempa FM, Mr. Osei Bonsu (OB) paid glowing tribute to his production team and to his predecessors who laid a solid foundation for him to build on.
“This Show is what it is today because of the incredible job done by the Production team led by Mr. Dominic Kissi Yeboah. And to be honest, I want to dedicate this award to all those who came before me – my predecessors for laying a solid foundation. Ken Addy, Kwabena Bobbie Ansah and the late Kojo Asare Baffuor Acheampong are the real heroes”.
