Ghanaian newscaster and producer at Citi TV and Citi FM, Abena Nyamekye Ampadu, has appreciated her foster father with a message full of bliss.

As many continue to take the opportunity of Father’s Day to highlight the role of their father’s in their lives, the Ghana journalist joined in the pleasant chorus to celebrate her foster father.

In a recent post on Twitter, Abena Nyamekye Ampadu, who was orphaned after the devastating demise of her parents indicated that she nearly became homeless at the age of 12.

According to her, after the death of her biological parents, a man she identified as Kwaku Arhin Domfeh stepped in to provide shelter for her.

However, amid her pain and the traumatic experience, someone wanted her now-foster father to abandon her.

She revealed, the unnamed person actually told her foster dad not to take her in when she needed care the most at the time as a vulnerable young girl.

‘‘I was only 12 when this man took me in. Someone actually told him to send me away, she said I was a bad omen and he’d die just like my parents.’’

In spite of the obstacles then, she said Kwaku Arhin Domfeh ‘‘never gave up on [her].’’

Abena Nyamekye Ampadu was full of acclamation on Sunday, June 21, 2020, as she took to Twitter to express appreciation towards her foster father.

‘‘Mr. Kwaku Arhin Domfeh, thank you for giving me a home,’’ she added.

Meanwhile, Abena Nyamekye Ampadu and her hubby tied the knot at a gorgeous traditional marriage ceremony earlier in 2020.

Abena Owusu Nyamekye, made an adorable bride as she blushed in her regal traditional outfit and African beads to officially seal her relationship with Jam Padu.

In another story, Ghanaian football stars Asamoah Gyan and Jonathan Mensah, have honoured their fathers with well-deserving messages. Father’s Day comes in a year in which many are feeling thankful for the lives of their fathers.

While a global pandemic attempted to rob fathers of the joy of being eulogised by their children and loved ones, many still went ahead to shower pleasant accolades on their biological fathers and other father-figures in their lives.
