Suspended Angel FM Presenter, Captain Smart, has shared why he hits hard at non-performing politicians in a new interview with Kwaku Sintim-Misa.
Smart was recently taken off air by the management of the radio station owned by the Angel Group of Companies for his comments about some people in the government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

"In the school of life, you don't need to be tolerated. You need to be celebrated. I want to be celebrated so the things I do today, people cannot comprehend," stated a defiant Smart.
"I don't want to be one of the presenters who will stand at the fuel station and call honourable 'can you please send MOMO to pay my fuel' nonsense."

During the same interview, he called on Ghanaians to make sure that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is the last old man to be president.
President Akufo-Addo celebrated his 77th birthday on March 29, 2021. He defeated a 62-year-old presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, in the 2020 general elections to secure a second term.
Akufo-Addo collected 51.302% of the votes cast against Mahama’s 47.359%. The votes difference between the two candidates stood at 517, 231, representing a four-percentage point, one of the highest since 1996.
“Ghana’s youth must understand and I’ve said it that after Nana Addo, the youth will not vote for any other old man again,” he stated on the show. The radio presenter further likened the current state of the country to a case of Ghanaians "becoming fools in our wisdomic house."
On Thursday, May 6, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported that Smart, the host of the Angel FM's morning show, Anopa Bofour, had been taken off the airwaves. It was later confirmed by Kwadwo Dickson, the station's General Manager.
It is said that Captain Smart made some not-so-nice comments about people in government. Some people think that his suspension is a form of a power play to gag the media.
