Latest:Captain Smart risks losing his job again at Media General. Check out why.
The marveric TV personality and social media commentator Gods brain Blessed Smart Yirenkyire aka Captain Smart risks losing his job at Media General. If it does happen, it will be the second time the anti-corruption crusader is being sacked from his positions this year.
Captain Smart started his media journey with Fox FM in Kumasi. He later joined Angel FM also in Kumasi and was a co host for a current affair program. Captain moved to Accra and worked with Multimedia’s Adom TV. He was the host of Fabewoso show where he exposed a lot of rot in the government. But he left the station after five years and joined Angel TV in Accra. Captain was suspended for allegedly insulting government officials, an allegation he denied. Subsequently, he joined Media General’s Onua TV as the host of their morning show. Gods brain didn’t relent in exposing perceived corrupt government officials.
But it looks like his attacks on some personalities has landed him in a bigger trouble as he may likely lose his current job on account of fraud. He who come for equity, they say must come with clean hands.
Yesterday on Net2 TV’s The Seat show, a document was published by the host Justice Annan purported to be coming from a Kumasi based private university called Christian Service University College. Per the content of the letter, Captain Smart used fraudulent admission documents to enter into the university to study BA Communication. This was detected later hence the university found him ineligible to be awarded the degree he studied for.
“We write in reference and as a follow up to the various communiques with you during 2008 regarding yourself imposed and ill-motived appraisal of yourself from Level 100 to Level 200 coupled with the regularizes on the document/certificates you presented as admission required, which we later identified as fake and not representative of your good self.
We regret notifying you that the University College is unable to award you its prestigious BA Communications Studies degree as we deem you ineligible on the basis of wrong and fraudulent entry requirements you presented and your refusal to regularize same during the period.”, parts of the letter read.
Captain’s current employer, Media General is a credible media house which doesn’t entertain fraud. It will be recalled that Nana Aba Anamoah was sacked from the TV3 for editing a picture and inserting herself. Again Abena Korkor was equally sacked for publishing nude photos on her Instagram page.
We therefore expect Media General to commence investigation into the alleged fraud on the part of Captain Smart and if found guilty, he will face dismissal.
Earlier, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong had sworn to expose Captain and make him useless. He also threatened to ensure the journalist’s license to operate his Smart TV was withdrawn. Clearly this is Kennedy at work and Captain Smart was not too “smart” this time.
