“It was an exciting (feeling) because I felt quite accomplished and I felt that I had to come back on the radio to do the magic. So, that’s how I met Nana Appiah Mensah. Fortunately, the salary came in the first, second, and the third month. The fourth month never came. For 12 months in a row, no salary came because of the MenzGold scandal,” he stated.
