Some former colleagues of actress Nana Ama McBrown at Despite Media have labelled her ungrateful following her switch to Onua TV/FM, a subsidiary of industry giants, Media General.
But Afia Pokuaa, a.k.a. Vim Lady, has taken a swipe on the development saying a switch by a journalist in the industry is not a big deal.
But for Vim Lady, Abena Moet, Kwame Nkrumah Tikɛseɛ and Ola Michael think Nana Ama should have stayed with Despite Media to show gratitude for what they have done for her.
According to Vim Lady, neither an employer or employee does the other a favour since a job contract is an exchange of skills/talent for salary.
“A job is a contract to exchange SKILLS/TALENT for SALARY. Nobody is doing anyone any favor by employing them. A contract too can be repudiated or abrogated at any time. The same way, me, Abeiku Santana, Kofi Kum Bilson and Obiyaa left Multimedia to join Despite Media, someone can leave and join another company. It’s just a job,” she said in a Facebook post.
She also said “The OWNERS OF DESPITE MEDIA are okay with McBrown but the disciples are always shouting to gain favor from the bosses. Did McBrown not increase our viewership too? Or did you give her the acting talent too?”
“DO WE SEE FOOTBALL TEAMS ATTACKING PLAYERS WHEN THEY CHANGE TEAMS? My only advice to McBrown is, there are bad colleagues and imperfect systems everywhere so stop granting interviews about your former employers. Take it from someone who has spent over 20 years in this industry and just Shine Your Eyes and Enjoy Your New Job because “emmre yenni nka so”. This attack by some Despite Media workers is not cool and gives us a BAD CORPORATE IMAGE,” she concluded.
McBrown’s parting with Despite Media was all rumours on social media after her absence from the screens for some weeks.
However, the hearsay was discarded after a glamorous welcome ceremony was organised for her at Media General Monday forenoon, March 13, 2023.
Staff of Onua TV/FM, TV3 and 3FM gave her a royal welcome which was spiced with a live band showdown that featured Piesie Esther and Akwaboah Jnr.
