Popular boxer and comedian, Bukom Banku, has opened up on why he was shown the exit from GHOne TV.
He was the host of a new show rolled out in June 2020 dubbed Bukom Banku Live.
Bukom Banku signed the contract in May with the management of the TV station popping Champaign to celebrate his new achievement.
Telling why he had to leave GHOne TV, Bukom Banku, speaking in a new video sighted by YEN.com.gh said he signed the contract with GHOne TV for a period of four months.
The four months, he said, ended in December and because the show had served its purpose, his contract was not renewed.
Though it was a short one, Bukom Banku said he has made a lot of gains from that contract that will not make him forget.
He disclosed that he is on his way to secure another job as TV7 is currently chasing him with an offer.
He said jokingly in the Ga language that if one’s girlfriend leaves, he needs to get a new one, hence, his decision to grab the new offer.
Banku was, however, very grateful to Nana Aba and Bola Ray for offering him that job, and referring to them as his father and mother, respectively, Bukom Banku said he will always be available to work with them.
Meanwhile, in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, GHOne TV said the show was to help reduce tension in the country before and after the election.
Therefore, now that the elections are over, the show has served its purpose and will be replaced with other programmes to entertain the station’s viewers.
