MzGee, popular Ghanaian entertainment show host, has shared her first meeting with Fadda Dickson, Managing Director of Despite Media Group, and vowed to avoid legal battles and imprisonment during her tenure, distinguishing herself from her predecessor.
According to her, Fadda Dickson declined to work with her the first time they met in 2021 when Abeiku Santana introduced her to the MD.
She revealed that Abeiku Santana suggested to Fadda Dickson that she (MzGee) should be brought to Despite Media as she was a very good host.
However, Fadda was quick to decline the suggestion emphasizing that she (Mzgee), should remain at her former work place due to her fluency in the English language.
Interestingly, after 2 years, MzGee ended up hosting the biggest entertainment program at the media firm.
Furthermore, Abeiku Santana has probed MzGee’s determination to host a show that has been touted as the most controversial in Ghana.
Halfway into an interview on OkayFM, Abeiku Santana asked where exactly her interest lies in a program that has landed its stakeholders in deep trouble several times.
Abeiku also asked whether MzGee isn’t afraid to moderate a show that has been dragged to court four times, at a point had all of its panelists fined and consequently, some even almost convicted.
“Are you not scared of a program that has been to court several times, if I am not mistaken, it has been to court for about four times. People were almost convicted others have been fined.
People almost escaped jail. Why this program? Are you not scared?” Abeiku queried.
“I haven’t been to court or jailed before but day in and day out, a MzGee interview is trending. Day in and day-out, people are critiquing and talking about a MzGee conversation.
As for the talking about, I am used to it. It is a jail term and a court that I haven’t been to. Plus, with the sort of production team we have, I’m not sure we will go to court,” he said.
One of the reasons United Showbiz’s former host, Nana Ama McBrown, was said to have resigned, was the direction in which the show headed.
It was said that the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’ was when she and all her panelists were fined GHC60,000 each, in a defamation lawsuit filed by Chairman Wontumi.
One can recall that A Plus, one of the show’s panelists, disclosed that McBrown singlehandedly footed the fine for herself and other panelists.
Some Instances where United Showbiz stakeholders have been sued;
Bullgod was earlier arrested by the BNI for stating on the United Showbiz that President Akufo-Addo will not finish his four-year tenure if he failed to pay the aggrieved Menzgold customers, a case, Nana Ama McBrown was dragged into.
He was charged with offensive conduct to the breach of the peace.
The two had made court appearances from 2021 until 2023 when Bullgod was fined GHC48,000.
In a separate development, A Plus was sued by Chairman Wontumi over certain comments he made on the United Showbiz.
In a writ of summons, that earlier circulated on social media, A Plus was expected to appear before court on December the 13th, 2022.
However, he established his intentions of filing an appeal against the case.
