The Multimedia Group Ltd has directed host of Ekosiisen show on Asempa FM, Philip Osei Bonsu popularly known as OB to self-quarantine following an interview with veteran musician and budding politician Obour.

The management of Multimedia disclosed this in a press release this afternoon.

According to the statement, even though they followed safety measures, it became necessary the host and the producers self-quarantine after the Obour revealed during the interview that he has lost a close relative to coronavirus.

“During the interview, Obour disclosed that he had lost a close relative to Covid-19. As a result, we immediately engaged a third-party company that disinfected the studios and entire Multimedia buildings as a necessary precaution.

“We have, in the meantime, asked the EKOSIISEN team to self-quarantine, while we seek expert medical advice on the matter,” the statement read.

Meanwhile Obour — real name Bice Osei Kuffour — has denied reports by Joy FM, a subsidiary of Multimedia Group that he lied about the travel history of his late dad when he was admitted to the Greater-Accra Regional Hospital, popularly known as Ridge.

In a statement released Saturday morning, the aspiring member of parliament for Asante Akyem South described the reportage as “inconsiderate and very irresponsible.”

“My attention was drawn a few minutes ago to a news item delivered on Joy FM earlier today suggesting that I gave wrong information to health workers at the Emergency ward of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital regarding my Late Father Nana Osei Boansi Kuffour.

“For a media house that’s believed to adhere religiously to the ethics and tenets of media practice, I find this reportage totally inconsiderate and very irresponsible,” he said.
