Ace broadcaster Gilbert Aggrey, otherwise called Abeiku Santana, has announced a decision to take a break from Ghanaian media very soon.
According to him, he wants to concentrate on tourism, which he says is his way of life now. Santana made the announcement on Saturday when he was being honoured for his outstanding contribution to the Ghanaian media.
He was given a Lifetime Achievement Award and Media Personality Award at the Pan-African Republic Honorary Awards at a ceremony held at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
Receiving the award, Santana congratulated the organisers, but said, “…I am sorry to announce that very soon I will be saying bye bye to the media because I have found a new love which is tourism which is my way of life. Thank so much Pan-African Republic Honorary Awards for appreciating me.”
Abeiku Santana is one of Ghana’s award-winning radio personalities.
He has had over two decades of work experience in the Ghanaian media space and is recognised as one of Ghana’s celebrated radio icons. He currently works at Okay FM, a subsidiary of the Despite Group of Companies. But it appears he has had enough of the media. He will bow out to concentrate on tourism.
Already, he is doing very well in the tourism industry with his Kaya Tours Company. In 2017, he was listed in top 100 tourism personalities in West Africa by Balafon Awards West Africa Committee of Experts. It is, therefore, no wonder he needs more time to focus on tourism.
