MY GOODBYE MESSAGE TO @starr1035fm
From the Atlantic, I shot up to the Maxx and became a Starr!
Success can be a lonely road.
A great man once said, “Whatever you put your mind to, you can achieve it”.
Today, I look back and feel proud of the man I have become.
From Help FM & Goodnews FM days to Cape Coast(ATL FM), back to Takoradi (Radio Maxx); to Accra(Starr FM).
Whiw! This is fulfilling.
Purpose well served with GOD. On to the next chapter to challenge myself more.
I’m really appreciative of your love and supports all through this journey.
@bolarayofficial and Alex Mensah, I’m so grateful for holding me down . For this, I owe you “pleeeeeeenty” sweepers & jingles, anytime .
And to the fam I made, the love is deep.
We are and will always be a family
