Media guru, Kwami Sefa Kayi, who was recently appointed as a board member of the National Petroleum Authority, has opened up about his journey to the media space.
Speaking to JoyNews, the chairman general said he has been talking for a living since 1993.
Kwami said it all started when he realised how much of a talkative he was at the age of 9.
He was also inspired by his mother who was a broadcaster.
The award-winning journalist revealed he started writing in secondary school and was an on-and-off member of the drama group.
Whilst writing for newspapers after school, a friend of his informed him about an opening at the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) for a TV theatre position.
Later, he met a man called Ekow Budu-Manuel, then a presenter of a youth programme at GBC, who gave him his first lessons in broadcasting and made him a production assistant on his show.
Along the line, he left GBC to radio gold as the first presenter they employed in September 1995.
He transitioned from there to Peace FM four years later and he has been there since.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that, #TheFixTheCountry campaign received another high-profile boost in the person of Kwame Sefa-Kayi, host of 'Kokroko' on Peace FM.
Ghanaians besieged President Nana Akufo-Addo and his government to fix the many problems in the country through the campaign.
The campaign which started on Twitter weeks ago gathered momentum outside social media with many putting pressure on the government to solve problems ranging from the economy, power, roads, to health.
"Who will say they are not for fix it? Like seriously? We all want it fixed. I don't think anyone in their right frame of mind will say we don't have issues in Ghana," said Kayi in response to a question by a listener on his show.
