The recent endorsement of his craft by 2019 Radio and Television Personality (RTP) Awards ‘Media Personality of the Year’ winner, Nana Aba Anamoah was an “overwhelming” experience, says Media Personality, Bliss Kingg.

During her acceptance speech at the premier media awards event, the GhOneTV News Editor highlighted the work of Kingg and JackieIsEveryWhere as hosts of ‘Good Morning Ghana +’ on Metro TV, the Labone-based Television station, whilst dedicating her award to “every young person who is trying to make a name on radio and TV.”

“Jackie! I love you. I watch you on Metro TV in the mornings. I am proud of you and your (co) host,” stated Anamoah.  “You look good together by the way. And I think that chemistry between you is beautiful. Keep it up.”

A little over a year ago, Kingg joined Metro TV to co-host the show that airs in the time slot usually reserved for Ghanaian and Nigerian movies on Ghanaian Television stations.

He told in a recent interview the commendation tops compliments he’s received about his work so far. 

 “The palpable chemistry between myself and my co-host, Jackie is heavily talked about media circles and the public. The overwhelming one was when Nana Aba Anamoah, winner of the top award at the RTP Awards made the topic of our on-screen chemistry a part of her acceptance speech,” explained Kingg.

“Those moments make me understand that we at GMG+ have something outstanding – chemistry that has possibly never been seen on our TV screens before.”

He told, he “personally expected the show to do bigger numbers” than it currently does but the experience has taught him to “manage my expectations and understand the importance of building slowly and steadily in order to present the public with an outstanding product.”

In spite of not yet witnessing his numerical expectations, Kingg revels in the viewers the show attracts – including high-profile personalities; the countless number of persons whose lives have been impacted through initiatives on the show, and gaining the acceptance and respect of colleagues in the Ghanaian media.

Prior to his current work with Metro TV, Kingg, born Bliss Dumashie spent four years working with iROKO Partners Limited in Nigeria. 

He worked in various capacities with the online company including being a part of the team that developed the channels, ROK on DSTv, Rok 2, Rok 3, ‘ROK on SKY’ in the UK, IROKO1 and IROKO2 on StarTimes.

Kingg also worked with the erstwhile Pravda Radio (now Vision 1 FM) first hosting a graveyard show, then producing and eventually hosting prime time slots – mid-morning and Drive time shows – on the station.

His media career started in 2010 as an intern with Adom FM – a unit of the Multimedia Group Limited.

“I am praised for my excellent interviewing skills. I am praised for being a good orator and my spontaneity. That’s why I am incredibly proud of a program like GMG+,” shared Kingg.

 “I will continue to push the envelope until I become a global super star talent from Ghana. My show starting Slogan ‘ŊDI NA MÍKATA’ which means ‘Good morning’ in the Ewe language has become a slogan people who meet me shout out. That’s impact. This makes me understand that I have to do it bigger and better.”
