We are fortunate TV stations have proliferated and now we are spoilt for choices. Televisions survive on programs just as computers are nothing without software. Some TV programs have been running on our TV screens for a long time, adjusting and modifying content along the way to ensure their relevance.
There other programs that run for a long and got extinguished. This write-up will highlight and catapults such programs. Some of these programs were really enjoyable and had viewers glued to their seats always.
- Allo Tigo
Allo Tigo was an informative, pop culture entertainment program hosted by the man who calls himself the Supremo. The show ran for fourteen years before Jon Germain finally applied the brakes and left many fans really disappointed.
The show debuted on Metro TV in 2003 and rose to become one of the qualitative entertainment shows ever in Ghana. It was an hour long show that features local and foreign music videos, albums reviews and interviews.
- Music Music
This program has undergone lots of transitions and modification. It started in 1999 and was then called Gold Blast. It is a program designed to give both mainstream artistes and underground artistes to sell their craft to the people of Ghana.
In 2005, it was rebranded and given a new name that we all know today. Virtually all established artistes have performed on this platform before. Saturday nights are enjoyable with Music Music, especially with the new segment, ‘the crazy dance’, hosted by DJ Willie and Papa Shamo whose sense of humour ignite the show into complete flames.
The show was formerly hosted by Bola Ray, Stacy and Jozi. The current hosts are Gloria Sarfo and Root I.
Studio audience gets the rare opportunity of interacting with their iconic music stars during interviewing time whist lovers of live music are given doses of what they crave for. Music Music still airs on TV3 every Saturday at 8:30pm.
- Morning Ride
The adorable Anita Owusu was the host of the show which runs on Metro TV on Saturdays in the morning. It could rival Allo Tigo as one of the best entertainment shows in the country. Anita interviewed lots of people that reflected the different segments of the show.
She took a break when she welcomed her first baby. The show has a new host in the called Dzifa Gray who is doing well to maintain the reputation of one of the longest TV shows in Ghana.
Dzifa and her crew, they take the people of Ghana through a jolly morning ride every Saturday morning.
- The KSM Show
The king of comedy started this show in 2003 and it’s still on TV. He treats his viewers with hilarious themes whilst informing and educating his cherished viewers and studio audience who we never get to see.
He interviews celebrities and highlight more on their careers and their contribution to the industry. He also invites unknown people and put them on the spotlight.
There is also a live band to performances by artistes to entertain viewers. The show was formerly called TGIF (Thank God it’s Friday) but later changed to the KSM to reflect its dynamism.
Efiewura is still popular among lots of people because of its infectious plots. The late comic actor Santo and his longtime pal, Judas pumped some adrenaline into the show before other seasoned actors joined the cast. Some of the earliest casts have quit but the sparkle is still intact because of the quality that the substitutes bring on board.
Efiewura, which means landlord, exposes some of the frustrating moments tenants go through at the hands of their landlords and their co-tenant. It revolves around theme of love, greed, sly and hatred.
The slogan of this famous Akan quiz program resonates even minutes after the show has ended. Host, David Dontoh whose extensive knowledge about the culture of the Ashanti people, social life and history teams up Western Union to bring to Ghanaians (not only Akan speakers) one of the best local informative and entertainment programs on our screens.
The show took a hiatus for a while but its back on TV again, making it one of the longest running shows on prime time TV- it has been a 19 years now since it made its debut on GTV.
