I cannot fake my accent; it’s real — Jeremie

Many listeners have said it behind radio presenter Jeremie Van-Garshong’s back that she fakes her accent whenever she is on air.

When Showbiz told her last Monday about what her critics are saying, she responded with a long laughter and revealed that she herself has received similar bashing.

“I cannot fake my accent, this is how I have been speaking when I was young and anyone who knows me can tell you. God has blessed me with this accent and I am happy to say my accent has taken me to a lot of places,” the 29 year-old radio presenter told Showbiz.

According to Jeremie, her command over the English language has given her the courage to interview international celebrities such as Ludacris, Trey Songz, Rick Ross, Keri Hilson, Bow Wow, Shontelle, T- Pain and Fabulous.

“Whenever I interview international celebrities, I feel like I’m speaking to my next door neighbour because I flow easily with them. I don’t feel intimated by their presence.

Jeremie started her radio career from Vibe Fm and later moved to YFM and after winning the hearts of many Ghanaians with her Y Lounge on YFM for five years, she moved to Live FM where she currently hosts the drive time show.

She is currently a brand ambassador for Malta Guinness and the Africa Rising Campaign Inspiring young people around Ghana and Africa and giving them an opportunity to share their inspirational stories with the rest of the world.
