Mr. Klaus von Backustein, former General Manager of Asempa FM now with the EIB Network has detailed how the late Kwadwo Asare Baffuor Acheampong (KABA) was employed at the Multimedia Group.
In a tribute on his facebook page eulogizing the seasoned broadcast journalist he said:” Good morning Kwadwo Asare Baffuor Acheampong (KABA). You were brought to me by Jerry Tsatro Mordy after your meeting at the Great Hall of the University of Ghana in December 2007, when the New Patriotic Party held presidential primaries for the 17 aspirants contesting the flagbearership slot for the governing party then.
You were then reporting for Top Radio, now Top FM and also teaching in Kaneshie.
A couple of months later, you walked to me at Asempa FM then broadcasting from the fourth floor of Pyramid House at Nima Junction and expressed interest in joining the team.
You demonstrated the confidence every successful radio presenter possesses. Indeed a perfect host for one of our news programmes ‘Asempa Today’ which was an hour-long bulletin.
Initially you struggled with the Twi dialect because obviously you were not used to broadcasting in Akan.
Gradually you grew to become a master of your own and officially joined the Multimedia family in August 2009 and became the regular host of the news bulletin ‘Asempa Today’ on Asempa FM. and also hosted the weekly current affairs programme ‘Kukurantumi’ on Saturday.
You became authoritative and took Ekosii Sen on Asempa FM to a different level when you took over from Nana Kwabena Bobbie Ansah.
You promised to tell this story one day but that day never came.
You were ready to take on additional responsibility.
You were a fighter.
Your Resource persons loved you.
Ghana loved you.
Rest in peace KABA
Rest in peace Brother!”
