MISRED TAKES GHANA BY STORM
7 June 2018
LEADING media personality, Samantha Musa -popularly known as MisRed- will be travelling to Ghana over this weekend as she seeks to extend her reach into various African markets including popular destinations such as Nigeria and South Africa.
MisRed will be travelling with manager Tannia Ngwena, and will be covering the ‘Ghana Meets Naija Concert’, which is a celebration of dominance by West Africa in the Afro Music Genre and superstar artists such as Wizkid, Mayorkun from Nigeria and Stonebwoy from Ghana will be performing.
In a statement, MisRed said:
“New markets excite me, I feel like it’s important that we start to think outside of our locality as Zimbabweans because Africa is a big continent. If we’re to become one we need to start tapping into each other’s markets.
“It’s exciting times for me being someone from a small country like Zimbabwe to showcase how loud and proud we are as a nation of very colourful people. So I hope to possibly just sprinkle a little bit of Zimbabwean sparkle at the Ghana Meets Naija Concert.”
MisRed will be partnering with WhatsUp TV, an entertainment company that produces WhatsUp TV and organises the annual WhatsUp TV Africa Music Video Awards. She will be appearing as their guest presenter over the weekend festivities, anchoring WhatsUp TV’s coverage of the Ghana Meets Naija Concert and supporting shows.
She will be hosting the red carpet and will be taking backstage interviews for both her Ghana collaborators and, her resident station in Zimbabwe, ZiFM Stereo.
Abd Traore, founder of WhatsUp TV, said in the spirit of Pan Africanism they are excited to have Zimbabwe’s favourite television and radio personality show her skills on their platform.
”I am passionate about learning and sharing ideas with other African creative entrepreneurs.
“Events such as these give us the easy platforms to network and learn from what each other is doing in our respective industries. MisRed will definitely have so much to take home to her fans and other industry peers.
“At the same time we’re also excited to be hosted by MisRed in December, when will be aiming to complete the full circle in our cultural exchange endeavours by visiting Zimbabwe to learn more about the culture, entertainment industry and how we can best help one another.”
Finally, MisRed will also be co-hosting THE DRYVE with Joel Orleans on YFM, one of Ghana flagship radio stations.
“Zim’s finest is coming to Accra, to YFM. I’m excited, and can’t wait to have her co-host on my show. She might not know it but she’s already got some fans out here”, said Joel Orleans.
