Asem Downplays Entertainment Journalists In Ghana
Ghanaian Rapper, a singer and songwriter Nana Wiafe Asante-Mensah, popularly known as Asem has labelled the entertainment journalist as a bunch of blockheads.
This reaction followed an interview Serwaa Amihere conducted with the Minister of information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah. The short video from the interview showed that Serwaa Amihere could not answer a question posed to her by the Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
According to the rapper, most presenters in Ghana are mistaken for journalist and that is the reason why he made that assertion.
