"The programme has dilated with the people in this country but the people you are hosting from outside the country are not in touch with the current situations of the country. Some have stayed outside for more than 30 years; even the sound quality is poor.

"I learnt she is being paid huge sums of money at the end of the month. We are not saying this secretly, we are doing this live on-air said anybody will record, let the person do so...because, at multimedia, you would not have been allowed to do that, so, why will you do it to us? You are using the kindness of Osei Kwame Despite and Fadda Dickson to be their weakness."

"Management of Despite Media has taken notice of the recent comments by Kwame Nkrumah Tikɛse making waves within the media space about Afia Pokua (Vim lady).

"Management wishes to inform the general public that, it is aware of Afia Pokua's absence from the country as well as her virtual Gyaso Gyaso program, having approved and sanctioned same. As an organization, it is within our rights to grant a staff leave, with or without salary depending on the circumstance and this is no exception.
