After taking a break from television for about two years, Ama K Abebrese is returning as the host of a new documentary series titled Champions of Society on Kwesé TV.
Ama K, an accomplished television presenter, started hosting TV shows in her teens on YCTV in London. She went on to present on BBC2, OBE TV, Viasat 1, TV3, Ebonylife TV and many others.
She is not just the host of the upcoming docu series but also a co-producer. She also co-produced with Katie Eavis, who is also the director.
The show highlights the works of some personalities in Ghana’s health and social sector who are helping to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people within Ghana.
The series has six episodes, each giving an insight into a range of social and health issues; talking directly to the people whose lives they affect.
For over 18 months, she travelled around Ghana, covering the issues of mental health, diabetes, breast cancer, leprosy, physical disability and HIV/AIDS.
The show is very personal to Ama K, as it gives a platform to some often unsung heroes in different communities.
Champions of Society premieres this Sunday, June 2 at 8:00pm on Kwesé TV.
Ama K told NEWS-ONE on Wednesday that she is inspired by the hard work of the personalities interviewed and highlighted in upcoming docu series.
“I really just wanted to highlight people who are making impact in the health sector in Ghana. It is really a passion project and I wish I have more money to do more. But it is just to highlight these people to say they are doing a good job. There is woman called Aunty Mercy, she is the one that runs the HIV & AIDS Clinic at Ridge Hospital. Everybody knows her. I am passionate about them and that’s just a part of me,” she indicated.
“I Won Experience At The RTPs. – Cookie Tee
Radio Personality and Celebrated host of GHOne TV’s relationship talkshow, Tales from the Powder Room, Cookie Tee has acknowledged the significance of the RTP Awards stage after her successive commandeering of the ninth edition on Saturday.
Cookie Tee who was also a nominee on the night did not pick her category. However, she shared insight of her broader focus of being part of the scheme.
She also acknowledged that it’s been a year and she has been able to achieve this recognition. Not winning will not stop her from working hard in everything she does.
“We didn’t win this time, but what I actually won on that stage hosting for the second time is waaaaaay more priceless than any award! I WON EXPERIENCE and that to me is EVERYTHING as I journey on in this Media Space.” — Cookie wrote on her Instagram page.
She also pointed out the fact that the voting procedure was “complicated” and perhaps that may also resulted in her loss.
“THANK YOU to ALL who took time to vote for me considering how “COMPLICATED” it was to go through the voting process.
To you all Genuine fans and loved ones who keep on looking out for me and cheering me on, I say GOD BLESS YOU!! —WE KEEP MOVING” — She added
The prestigious Radio and Television Personality awards Ghana is a scheme that celebrates the achievements of media personalities across the country. The ninth edition came off on Saturday October 12 at the Accra International Conference Centre amidst the splendour and glitz from the red carpet.
Shirley Tibilla was host for the second time; aided by actor James Gardener. James Gardener’s skill and experience on the stage provided the perfect link for both hosts to flow with the audience who were mainly top industry people as well as heads of businesses and politicians.

Pluzz FM’s Elvis Crystal Wins Late Afternoon Show Host Of The Year At RTP AWARDS’19.
Pluzz FM’s Elvis Crystal has been adjudged the best late afternoon show host of the year at the 9th edition of the Radio and Television Personality (RTP) Awards held at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday, October 12.
He beat stiff competition from astute radio personalities like Jessica Opare Saforo (Citi FM), Abeiku Aggrey Santana (Okay FM), Blakk Rasta (Zylofon FM), Giovani Caleb (3FM), Micky Darling (Peace FM), KOD (Starr FM).
The fine gentleman with an apropos sense of fashion that matches his voice tone took over as Pluzz 89.9fm prime time show “Area Gang” a little over a year ago from his predecessors Nana Otu Gyandoh and Ruddy Kwakye. He was able to fit nicely into the big shoes of his senior colleagues and has grown the show to a very appreciable level with huge following since the station moved from its Sowutuom location to the West Hills Mall.
Elvis is an astute and prolific radio presenter, a growing maverick in radio programming, a smart radio and TV imaging professional, a voice actor, TV host and screen actor as well as a talent coach.
Since his presence onto Ghana’s radio scene in 2005 as a disc jock on Accra’s adult alternative radio station, Atlantis Radio where he got his grounding and influence from, he recounts strapping up knowledge and ideas from the late CEO
Mr. James Appiah and other skilled broadcasters such as Mr. Robert Owusu. Elvis arduously sifted through the radio and voice over industry with persistence, verve and consistency to be one of the best radio hosts and voice artists in the country today.
He went on to explore his gifts and to broaden the scope of his abilities with Radio XYZ for a little over 6years where he worked with fine and seasoned broadcasters such as Mr. Tommy Anan-Forson, and Mr. Gordwin Avenorgbor. In 2012, industry greats have labeled him as the “next big thing” in today’s radio, he went through the learning cycles and hosted several shows including, the drive time slot, the mid-morning slot, weekend breakfast show, Weekend Evening shows, and specialist music shows such as Jazz Café and Music of Africa most of which were self-produced.
Elvis amasses a wide listening audience both young and old, in 2017, he joined Accra’s urban music station, Pluzz 89.9fm, Accra’s Music Leader and advanced to be the host of the station’s drive time slot “The Drive with the Area Gang” which has become one of the country’s best drive time shows.
The young dynamic on air broadcaster who doubles often as a DJ does not only have a sleek voice that holds attention but also the gift of sustaining listeners throughout with his urban on-air style and flair, dexterity, humor, wit and a good slap of analytical outlook on newsy social issues. It’s factual that he has grown the show to a highly appreciable level with a huge fan base, you will agree that in almost every commercial vehicle you aboard, you will possibly catch his voice pervading through the speakers, even in shops and office across the capital and beyond. Aside being the drive host, his other roles at the station as Programs Manager and Head of Productions cannot be mistaken.
The jack of many trades is on live on Pluzz Fm from 3pm to 6pm, Monday to Friday
Elvis has steadily risen to be mentioned among the few poised and captivating radio personalities in the country; in 2018 Graphic showbiz featured him in the “Lords of Radio and TV” nationwide publication along with his contemporaries. He has been nominated in several industry awards some of which include the Ghana Entertainment Awards USA 19 in the Best Radio Personality –Male category, Hyperlink Media Awards 2018 in the Best Radio Drive Time Personality category, and in the recent 2019 Radio and TV Personalities (RTP) Awards Africa in the Radio Late Afternoon Show Host of the Year Category.

He is the dynamic and captivating narrator of his audio book “Heart, Spirit and Soul”, a collection of short inspiring stories. He hints of completing his book, which he claims is an anthology of free verse, prose and quotes.
Elvis Crystal hails from the Volta Region; he is a product of University Of Ghana, Legon, Ghana School of Marketing (GSM), and St. Mary’s Senior Seminary High School, Volta Region. He is currently a student of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) pursuing his Masters Programme.
