Do you remember Kwaku Asamoah Tutu? Popularly known as Kwaku T, he was the Ghanaian representative in Big Brother Africa season II in 2007.
The seventh evictee from the house, he is probably best remembered for being in a relationship with two girls; Bertha Zakeyo, the lawyer from Zimbabwe and later Meryl Shikwambane, the receptionist from Namibia.
Besides the buzz which made rounds that he and Bertha were going to tie the knot after the show, we have not heard much from him since; until now.
Apparently, he is among a group of young television presenters to grace Planet Radio TV (PR TV), an innovative channel showcasing Africa’s music and youth entertainment that starts today on DSTV.
Kwaku T will present a show called Daily Planet Host, a mishmash of entertainment fare.
“PRTV has grown from being solely an online entertainment platform and has successfully integrated the live elements of radio and the visual aspects of TV with state of the art technology and boasts more than eight hours filled with live entertainment TV daily!,” says DStv publicist Tina Wamala.
Wamala says viewers will enjoy a multitude of in-house produced productions that cater to the music and entertainment needs of the Pan-African viewers.
The channel’s breakfast show, Daily Planet airs on weekdays from 10:00am and showcases exclusive celebrity news and videos.
The new-age jukebox, Planet Mix, is sure to be a hit with music lovers as PR TV’s talented VJs provide daily live mixes that satisfy even the most eclectic of musical tastes.
“The world of hashtags and retweets comes to life every Monday at 10:00pm on the interactive Twitter Sphere while drive time TV launches into the entertainment stratosphere with The Buzz on Wednesdays at 5:00pm and Z Drive on Thursdays at 5:00pm.
The channel also shines the spotlight on the best that Ghana has to offer with GH on Point, weekdays at 12:00pm.
Viewers should lookout for Idols Cameroon winner Zinnia who hosts the Z Drive, former Big Brother Africa housemate Kwaku who hosts the Daily Planet host, the stunning Nadia (a field reporter), the talented DJs Waxxy, Scratch Masta and Leon (Planet Mix) plus a whole lot more young, driven media professionals.
The channel will be on the pay TV platform for a three-month trial period and will be available on DStv channel 335 to Ugandan viewers on the Access, Family, Compact Plus, Compact and Premium bouquets until July 15 2014.
