Samuel Atuobi Baah aka Sammy Flex

The former host of the groundbreaking show, ‘AM Pluzz’ on Pluzz 89.9FM, who is also the Communications Head of Zylofon Media, is now the morning show host of ‘Showbiz Agenda’ on Zylofon FM.

Sammy Flex and his team brought smiles to the faces of many with their first ever extensive entertainment morning show programme at Pluzz FM. It was, therefore, a surprise to many when news broke that he had left the station.
