Popular Akan speaking radio/TV personality, Deloris Frimpong Manso better known as Delay, has revealed that her intention is to take her TV show out of the shores of Ghana.
Arguably one of the most popular shows in Ghana, Host of the The Delay Show, which airs on GHOne TV has been accused of sometimes being abrasive as she is able to get her guests to spill their guts even when they don’t want to.
Speaking in an interview with Showbiz, Delay expressed her desire to see her show transcend outside Ghana.
“I think it would not be bad if the show goes to other countries. I had good reviews with Mr Eazi and I believe I can do well outside Ghana,” she stated.
To Delay, her show which has been airing over a decade now is top notch because of its consistency.
“I think The Delay Show is the best now because of the buzz around it. Personalities such as Sarkodie, Asamoah Gyan, Stonebwoy, Bisa Kdei, Ofori Amponsah, Yvonne Okoro, KKD, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, Grace Omaboe (Maame Dokono) and Shatta Wale have all been on the show.”
Delay who was been accused by some of her guest including Joyce Blessing, Kurl Songx, Mzbel and Vicky Zugah of being on a mission to destroy their brands indicated that her show is never intended to defame personalities.
“I don’t force anyone to say things they don’t want to say on my show. The Delay Show is a talk show where I allow my guests to free their minds. My guests have the liberty to answer the questions posed to them and if they are not comfortable, no one pushes them to answer,” she said.
In her recent interview with actress, Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapim Polo, people were unhappy with Delay’s line of questions with some of the opinion that she took revenge on the actress who had previously insulted her(Delay) but Delay said she just asked legitimate questions.
“Any good presenter would ask questions any ordinary Ghanaian wants to know. Rosemond Brown said that I wanted to use her to be popular and I asked her if I needed her to be popular? That is a question any good presenter would ask. Or?,” she queried.
According to her, she has on several occasions asked her guests before the show starts to let her know what they are and not comfortable with.
“I personally asked Rosemond Brown to point out to me the questions she didn’t want me to ask her and she said she is cool with every question, I am therefore surprised Ghanaians are saying I bullied her on the show,” she said.
Away from The Delay Show, Delay would not give much away about her personal life. The controversial TV host, who celebrated 36th birthday on Monday, however revealed she is dating a nice young man and at the right time Ghanaians will know when she ties the knot.
