Young promising Blogger/Editor of EonlineGhana.com, has disclosed how he long to meet astute TV and radio broadcaster and CEO of EIB Network, Nathan Kwabena Anokye- Adisi, popularly known as Bolay Ray – just as fans of celebrities in the West, sometimes get the privilege of meeting their favourite celebrities or mentors.
Sharing his admiration for the celebrities-meeting-their-fans orientation, Frimpong Prince posted on his official Facebook wall. Read below (unedited).
“I watched on YouTube how these foreign stars reward their fans with priceless surprises. I mean Justin Bieber, David Beckham, Taylor Swift, others and even one time ED Sheeran accepted a proposal to perform at the wedding of one of his diehard fans.
One famous B-ball star took a fan to prom. Taylor Swift actually crushed a wedding she wasn’t even invited to. These are special moments celebrities offer to their fans out there and it brings them closer to them. But I hardly see such things happen in Ghana here (pardon my ignorance if any).
I used to watch a couple of stars surprise their fans on the show “Guess who’s coming to dinner” and those moments were truly memorable. I mean imagine Sarkodie popping up in your room one day to spend the day and play Fifa with you.
That’s truly memorable and I wish we could have more of this happen — it shouldn’t always be about selling tickets to fans. Some of these stars should have one on one interactions with their fans through surprise visits and what have you.”
Ending, the well composed and studious Frimpong Prince appealed:
“Me I want to hang out with Bola Ray so that he can mentor me on how to be successful.”
Bola Ray heads EIB Network (Ghana’s biggest media establishment today –owners of Starr FM, Live FM, Abusua FM, Empire FM, GH One TV, the Heritage Newspaper, and a host of others). He’s also CEO of the Empire Group of Companies comprising Empire Entertainment and Empire Records. Under that outfit, he stages the annual highly-anticipated Ghana Meets Naija Concert, and has overseen the careers of popular acts as Guru, Ruff & Smooth, and Dobble.
Bola Ray has also distinguished himself as a style icon, daily mentor, powerful visionary, eternal philanthropist, and model family man. So far has his integrity spread that it has landed him in conversation with national and international newsmakers across various spectrums of society: H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo, Coach Avram Grant, Don Jazzy, Dr. Charles Wreko Brobbey, Paul Afoko, Ofori Amponsah, Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Madam Joyce Aryee, veteran commentator Joe Lartey among several others.
It doesn’t end there: he’s’ recipient of enviable honours: 4th Most Influential Personality at the 2014 edition of Ghana’s Most Influential Awards, International Media & Entertainment Personality of the Year award (GUBA, 2015), Vector Recognition Award (2010), City People’s Awards (2012), Man of the Year – Communication (Exclusive Man of the Year Awards, 2016), multiple Radio & Television Personality (RTP) awards, GN Awards, etc.
