Angel FM Presenter, Ohemaa Woyeje, has made some interesting revelations about the circumstances leading to the suspension of Captain Smart by Dr. Kwaku Oteng.
In a new interview with Zionfelix, she disclosed that Smart lied about the real reasons why he was suspended by Oteng, who is the founder of Angel Group of Companies, the parent company of Angel FM.
In early May 2021, it was revealed that Captain Smart has been suspended by the management of the radio station.
There were a number of reports that stated varied reasons why Captain Smart was sacked, including the fact that Dr. Kwaku Oteng received a notice from the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to take the presenter off the air.
Speaking about the suspension, Ohemaa Woyeje said it had nothing to do with the GRA.
"After seeing the letter of the suspension, I realized that it was quite different from the information out there about GRA issues. According to the letter that I saw and read from Dr. Kwaku Oteng, the message in there was different from what was told to the public on the Metro (TV) interview," Ohemaa, who hosts Yadwuma Nie, the mid-morning show on Angel FM said.
She further explained what was in the letter: "Apparently, Dr. Kwaku Oteng wanted him to address issues without insulting people no matter what. There had been prior conversations before hoping that there would be a change but Smart didn't listen. Once it continued, Oteng had a decision to make as a businessman. He didn't want the situation to affect his other companies."
