Host of Adom FM’s mid-morning show, “Work and Happiness”, Ohemaa Woyeje, has quit after six years. She tendered in her resignation on Wednesday, January, 30.
Speaking to Showbiz, Ohemaa revealed that the terms of her contract had been breached, hence her decision to quit.
“I took my vacation and returned in October. I resumed work and about an hour before I went on air, my boss sent me a Whatsapp message asking me to hand over the show to someone else, without any explanation.
“My contract of employment at Multimedia is as a presenter and per my job description, I’m to host, entertain and engage listeners with music and delivery but they breached the contract by assigning me new roles that have nothing to do with presenting such as field jobs and production work.
Ohemaa Woyeje has not been heard on radio since October last year and many of her fans had been asking questions on social media about where she was and why she wasn’t on air.
“I really don’t want to hustle with anybody over a job and that’s why I have decided to go. I have responded to my fans on social media and they should keep monitoring my social media pages for my next step,” she stated
I have a lot of offers I am considering right now. One of them is quite urgent and it is possible I might sign their contract, but for now I am taking a break, but rest assured, I will be back on air before the year ends,” she said.
In spite of the way things have turned out, Ohemaa Woyeje said her time at Adom FM had been very fulfilling. “It has been a great experience; the awards, revenue and opportunities I have had have been amazing. I have learnt a lot at Multimedia and I don’t have regrets about my time there at all.”
On what’s next after this, Ohemaa Woyeje, who runs a number of businesses, including an Ice Bar in Accra, said she wants to take a break and focus on her ventures before deciding on where to go next.
She expressed her appreciation to the owner of Multimedia, Kwasi Twum, who she said was a great boss. She also wished all her colleagues and her bosses well.
“You know in a normal working environment, you won’t get it all smooth but I am grateful to them all for the memories and the experience and I wish them all the best.”
Ohemaa Woyeje started her media career in 2003 with Nkosuo Radio in Kumasi. She moved to Sky FM in Sunyani then on to Zuria FM in Kumasi.
She then moved to Accra where she pitched camp with Top Radio; she was with the station for seven years and handled the mid-morning show for five-and-a-half years before Multimedia brought her on board to host Work and Happiness, which she handled for nearly six years.
