A “disciple” of Kumasi Anglican SHS, a trained teacher from Presbyterian Training College at Akropong-Akuapem, a former student of GIMPA and now pursuing a second degree at UPSA, Bright Asempa (BA) is the host of the most interactive current affairs show on radio ‘Yen Nsem Pa’ and 2016 election programme ‘Krokromoti’, both on Onua FM.
He got up close and personal with online journalist Nana Afrane Asante (NA) and this is what ensued between them.
NA: What motivates you?
BA: I think that largely I depend on my own instincts.
NA: What are your hobbies?
BA: I don’t know how to swim but I always love to be in the pool and I love to hang out with friends sipping a bottle of wine with some khebabs makes me feel good. I also love to play football because I was a defender back in school and I was always a school team member.
NA: What do you do to relax?
BA: A cool massage will do, oh my goodness! hahahaha Just give me a cool massage and I will play to your tune.
NA: Favourite music?
BA: I love MC Lyte’s Keep on Keeping on. It’s an old tune but I love it.
NA: First kiss?
BA: I don’t think I remember because there have been several kisses, some knowingly and some unknowingly (Giggles)
NA: First car?
BA: It was an old rickety charmant, and I say rickety because it was very old. I inherited it from my dad. That was the first car my dad bought and he decided to give it to me and the first day I took hold of it, I cruised all around town.
NA: Favourite fashion item?
BA: I love sea blue colours and I must say I am a natural person and I love the African wear and I always want to be in the African wear. It brings out the contours in me so I love to sew something that will bring out the best in me.
NA: Favourite chocolate or fruit?
BA: I love black chocolates and for fruits, I will always go for banana without groundnut. I love banana.
NA: Favourite radio and TV station?
BA: Before I joined MG radio, I used to watch TV3 a lot and I’m a TV3 person and I love TV3 because of the presenters paraded and with radio, I can never go wrong with Onua FM.
NA: Favourite sport?
NA: Favourite family member?
BA: My dad because of the several beatings he gave us when we were young. He used to beat us without any reason. (Giggles) but let me say all of that brought out the best in me.
NA: Favourite team?
BA: Local will be Accra Hearts of Oak and international Liverpool.
NA: Favourite player?
BA: International will be Steven Gerard because I am a Liverpool fan and for local Stephen Appiah and Sulley Muntari.
NA: Favourite food?
BA: Give me Eba with pepper and avocado, green pepper, a lot of onion and salmon and once I have that, any day, anytime trust me I can eat it three times a day.
NA: Favourite place for a holiday?
BA: I’m still African and I love Kenya. I saw nature during my first visit to Kenya as compared to other countries I have been to which were too artificial.
NA: First thing you do when you wake up?
BA: Jumping out of bed the first thing I do when I wake up is to check if I have any missed calls then I will go heat water for my bath and when I’m ready to leave home, I talk to God.
NA: Last thing you do before you go to bed?
BA: I love to touch, rub and cuddle my wife from behind before I go to bed and that is very important.
NA: When did you break your virginity?
BA: I don’t remember because maybe it happened under the influence of alcohol so I just can’t remember.
NA: What do you miss about your younger years?
BA: I miss killing birds with a catapult and the little little ‘tsatsa’ I used to play and ‘chaskele’.
