Kidi late-comer: EL, Lydia Forson, others criticize Accra FM for being unprofessional
Lydia Forson and EL have added their voice to the ongoing debate on whether or not the Accra FM radio personality was justified to handle Kidi’s late coming in front of the camera and on air.
Kidi’s interview on Accra FM was called off after he reported late. Been his second time of showing up late, the Radio personality who wished to have had a very interesting interview with the Lynx Entertainment signed artiste decided to call off the show.
He noted that he and his listeners were disrespected by the musician for showing up 25 minutes late for an interview that was well-publicized
Reacting to the position taken by the Presenter to embarrass Kidi live on radio, EL who is also an artist said it was unprofessional to have addressed such an issue on air just to embarrass the artiste.
He said, “The Presenter should have picked a more private platform to address Kidi’s tardiness, these are difficult times we’re living in, regardless of the history they’ve had”.
Lydia Forson who seems to share a similar opinion in a tweet said “This could have been handled better than this. Time must be respected by everyone, that I agree with. But to publicly humiliate a GUEST on your show like this is unfortunate. How many times have we showed up to interviews/events etc that didn’t start on time”.
She added “To be clear, I’m not condoning tardiness, if anything I’ve always insisted that we all have to do better at respecting time. Kidi was late, yes, but the way the presenter handled it was equally unprofessional per industry ethics. The whole incident was unfortunate”.
