Ghanaian media personality and mental health advocate Abena Korkor has disclosed that she was shocked to be fired from Media General – the parent company of TV3 where she used to host a show.
“It came as a shock to me because I wasn’t doing anything bad to affect them. If my lingerie photoshoot was used for a proposal, why do they have issues with the same lingerie I shot videos with? I was encouraging other women to embrace their stretch marks. They were not being straightforward with me. I really cried. I have healed from it.”
Abena Korkor was removed from air on TV3 after she dropped videos of her in lingerie on her Instagram page.
She initially said the copy promised to reinstate her after she was taken off air, but disclosed on the Delay Show what exactly happened.
According to the media personality, the company told her that some of their brands had issues with the videos and pictures.
“From the initial dialogue, I realised it wasn’t because of my videos because my December lingerie photoshoot was used for proposals for a shoot by Media General. They said it wasn’t my videos but later on, they said some brands had issues with my videos and pictures.”
She added that the company did not directly terminate the contract they had with her.
“They didn’t say they’ve terminated my contract. From conversations, they said they were preparing a new contract and I’ve been waiting for over a month. I started working on a contract basis and I continued working with them after it expired. That’s how I see it.”
