Ghanaian blogger Albert Nat Hyde, popularly known as Journalist Albert, has been sacked by his employer.
Journalist Albert’s sacking comes in the midst of his recent clash with General Manager of GHOne TV, Nana Aba Anamoah and her other colleagues on TV.
Albert, who is also known as Bongo Ideas had gone to GHOne TV to audition in The Next TV Star series.
The young man was asked to present a political show. Before he could gather his thoughts to set the ball rolling, Bridget Otoo interjected and it led to a barrage of attacks from Nana Aba and Serwaa Amihere.
Nana Aba Anamoah singled out a tweet reportedly taken from the young man’s Twitter handle and read it for all to hear. The tweet was about Serwaa Amihere which had the young man claiming he knew what she was up to in the country.
In his defense, the young man said his life on social media was not the same as his real life and that it was only an ‘agenda’ he was setting. But his explanation did not suffice and he was booted out of the auditions.
Following that embarrassing encounter, Journalist Albert’s woes have been deepened as he has lost his job. According to his employer, Chris Handler, Journalist Albert ceases to be a worker for him from today onwards.
In a statement released on his Facebook page, Handler indicated the decision to sack Albert had nothing to do with the clash with Nana Aba. It was rather a result of discontentment of Albert with his job which has been inhibiting his performance.
Read his dismissal announcement by his boss below:
Blog owners don’t usually announce when they’ve stopped working with someone but this one, it’s become important that I do so considering how things have turned out.
Ghbase has relieved Journalist Albert of his services and we want to state that, it’s not because of his issue with Nana Aba Anamoah and the other ladies.
We just had to let him go, because of some messages he had sent to Kwadwo Sheldon weeks ago.
I’m one person, that does not stand in the way of any worker looking for other opportunities elsewhere and frictional unemployment is a normal thing in our world but that doesn’t mean you should under perform at your current job.
There were discussions about meeting agreed targets and I thought we had reached a resolution but I was wrong–Someone was obviously not happy.
I’ve come to the realization that, there was no remorse in the apology he made at the time and would have still left if things had succeeded with Sheldon.
I do not want any employee to feel like I’m sitting on their freedom—I like freedom myself, main reason why I settled for a career in ‘Netpreneurship’ so I can work from anywhere in the world with just a smart phone or laptop with internet access.
Also I have writers who I know write for other blogs, run their own blogs and I personally have no issues so far as you are meeting targets.
He’s a good writer, so we wish him well on his next endeavour.
