Radio/TV Host Deloris Frimpong-Manso has come a long way.
She took to Facebook late Sunday Afternnon to share her what it was like on the come-up, and also her success story.
Read her post below.
The only thing you start from the top is when you’re digging a grave. I started as a presenter at life FM in nkawkaw when I was only seventeen in 1999. I used to be called Frimpomaa on radio then. When my mum died in in 2003 I gave up on my dream for some 2 years and went back into radio in 2005-6 when top radio came back on air. Got on presenters guide in 2007 and was hired by Oman FM that year. Got replaced on Onie after just 8 episode .. I was crushed but kept it to myself and went back to the drawing table… Came up with the Delay show which was first aired on the 4th of April the following year and Smooch too. Afia Schwarzenegger came on in 2011, Delay Mackerel in 2012 and in 2015 after taking some 2 years to make this brands even stronger, I did the Delay tomato paste and Delay Sardines. You see, I am an orphan who was left with two sibling to cater for and no money, support or hope. When I came into this industry I was labeled “not beautiful enough, bush amongst other demeaning tags”… But that didn’t stop me.. Today I’ve employed over 35 workers some with families and we are still on it. And I am more than excited as I get ready to introduce COCOA BROWN. Thank you dearly Miss Jay @smoochgh and @niihalifax . Doesn’t matter where you are today!!!
