In 2017 on this day, news of the demise of Accra-based Asempa FM’s greatest political asset, Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong popularly known as KABA, shocked the media fraternity and the entire nation.
KABA died on Monday, November 18, 2017 after he was rushed to the hospital, having suffered a hypertensive complication.
Until his death, Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong was the host of Asempa FM’s ‘Ekosi Sen’, a political talk show on radio. He led a number of anti-corruption campaigns in the country. KABA died barley a year after his marriage to radio presenter, Valentina Ofori Afriyie in 2016. He was survived by a daughter.
KABA was awarded Best Talk Show Host in the 2017 edition of the Radio and Television Personality (RTP) Awards. He joined the Multimedia Group in 2009 as a broadcast journalist and host of the daily news bulletin, ‘Asempa Today’ on Asempa FM. KABA later took charge as the host of their Saturday mornings current affairs program, ‘Kukurantumi’. He subsequently became host of the political talk show, ‘Ekosii Sen’ on Asempa FM.
