Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Giovanni Caleb, the new host for TV3 Date Rush show, has finally explained how he took over from the former host, Nii Kpakpo Thompson.
According to him, he was informed by the management of TV3 that Kpakpo had relocated from Ghana, and so they needed him on board.
Giovanni made this revelation in an interview with Delay as monitored by YEN.com.gh.
He described Nii Kpakpo as a wonderful and talented host who did well with hosting the past episodes of Date Rush.
Giovanni was quick to add, however, that he also believes in his craft and knows he is doing well as the new host.
Asked if he saw the negative comments that came from the public over the change, Giovanni said he saw and read all the comments but they never moved him.
According to him, people have now accepted and warmed up to him as the new host of the show.
"When I check the DM, there are new messages of people appreciating what I do," Giovanni revealed.
Meanwhile, Nii Kpakpo had earlier revealed why he was no longer host of the show.
He disclosed in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh that he was informed by TV3 management that they wanted a new person on the show.
He made this disclosure when the first episode of Date Rush was aired and Ghanaians got to know that he had been changed as host.
Therefore, Giovanni's revelation comes in sharp contrast to what Kpakpo said earlier.
