Radio host Blessed Godsbrain Smart, alias Captain Smart has been suspended by Angel FM for allegedly repeatedly slandering government officials including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
This was disclosed by the General Manager of Angel FM, Kwadwo Dickson in a radio broadcast Thursday. Videos of the broadcast (below) have since gone viral on social media.
Responding to speculations on social media that Captain Smart had been yanked off the air by the management of Angel FM for criticising the government, Mr. Dickson said the presenter had rather been sanctioned by the Chairman of the Angel Group of Companies, Dr Kwaku Oteng for speaking against government officials including President Akufo-Addo, the Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, the Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen and the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh
He further disclosed that despite advice from Dr. Oteng to desist from making such comments about government officials, the presenter had still persisted.
Captain Smart joined the parent company of Angel FM, Angel Broadcasting Network (ABN) in May last year after seven years at the Multimedia Group where he hosted Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem morning show.
Smart who doubles as the Director of Operations of Angel Broadcasting Network is the regular host of Angel FM's flagship Anopa Bɔfoɔ Morning Show but went off the air (as a result of his suspension) after starting the show today.
