Renowned fashion designer and broadcaster, Kofi Okyere Darko, affectionately called KOD has resigned from Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB) Network.
The ace broadcaster announced his resignation from EiB on his facebook page. “After 5 straight years at EIB, we mutually parted company last Thursday. It’s been 5 awesome years with an amazing family. From my love Live FM, my love child as Head of events & host of 360 Live (I truly enjoyed my days at Live with the youngsters) & later moving to Starr to host the Zone & Starr Dive, it’s been a fabulous learning curve.” He wrote.
He also took the opportunity to thank his former employers and colleagues at EiB network. He wrote, “I’m indebted to the Duffour family, my brother & friend Bola Ray (since our mid-teens), Von, gorgeous Emaline, Jeffrey De Gea (who walked me through a lot), Miss Nancy Adobea Anane & my fav marketing & sales family…. our daily KOD tales (Selassie Tettey Kekeli Gloria Hogba) .. and the last year with my old friend, the gorgeous Cookie & DJ Vyrusky, it’s been an awesome trip.”
Few hours after KOD announced his exit from the network, another stalwart of the network, Jon Germain, also announce his resignation. Jon Germain hosted Drop Zone on Starr FM. He wrote on facebook, “I am happy to announce that after 5 years and 9 months of being with STARR FM & the EIB family, we have decided to mutually part ways. I'd like to thank everyone who worked with me from the Drop off to The Zone. And everyone who tuned in to my shows. All the best.”
Reports indicate that the EIB network headed by Bola Ray is going through challenges. In 2018, he revealed that most of his staff left his company due to unpaid salaries. According to him, he had not paid salaries for seven (7) months and those that he trusted and had planned the future of his company with left.
Berla Mundi, Kafui Dey, Naa Ashorkor, A.J Sarpong, Sammy Forson, Anita Erskine just to mention a few have all left the network.
The network is one of the many companies owned by Dr Kwabena Dufuor, founder of UniBank. And since uniBank was closed down by Bank of Ghana due to liquidity challenges, EIB Network was expected to struggle as the financial challenges cut across the group of companies owned by Dr Kwabena Dufuor.
