Celeb Sunday: Celebrity In Focus – Nana Aba Anamoah
Are you searching for one of the most popular and influential journalists in Ghana, look no further than Nana Aba Anamoah. Nana Aba Anamoah has over the years established her reputation as a queen of the airwaves and her mastery of the profession is without doubt. It was not an easy ride for the ‘born one president’ as she had to fight her way through a very difficult and maybe unfair treatment by TV3.
Nana Aba has a degree in banking and finance from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration [GIMPA]. She previously worked as a newscaster for TV3 and was also the host of a popular football show, the Divas show.
She was at the center of controversy when she was suspended by TV3 because of a photoshopped image she tweeted which seemed to imply that she attended a Manchester United football match at Old Trafford. She resigned after the suspension, a suspension which was largely regarded in the public domain as an unfair treatment by the management of TV3.
Talk about building castles out of the stones people throw at you. Nana Aba wasted no time in counting losses as she quickly forgot about the TV3 escapade and moved on to Ghana’s EIB Network, specifically GHOne TV. She is the host of a very educative program, State of Affairs and is also the anchor of GHOne TV’s evening news, titled “GHOne News Tonight”.
Her success as a journalist and celebrity is not in doubt as he has swept home countless awards. In 2015, she scooped home the TV Personality of the Year, the Ghana Journalist Association News Reporter of the Year as well as the TV News Anchor of the Year Awards. Her strides in the journalism field were again recognized as she won the Television Current Affairs Show Host of the Year award in 2016. More laurels followed in 2017 as she scooped home a hat trick of awards including; Radio and TV Personality [RTP] of the Year, RTP TV Female Newscaster of the Year and RTP Female Presenter of the Year.
Any sense of humor? Nana Aba is also famed for being a ‘grammar police’ because she never overlooks any grammatical error she notices on social media. She was even awarded by a fan on Twitter as the Inspector General of the Grammar Police Service, a gesture she “appreciated”.
Nana Aba Anamoah serves as a massive source of inspiration to many ladies who aspire to become journalists.
With her eloquence, intelligence and outspokenness, Nana Aba Anamoah has sailed despite the raging storms and ensured that her place in the world of elite journalists is undisputed.
