The Ghanaian man who was confronted by a judge he had trolled on Twitter in the past worked as a journalist before he was sacked some days ago. He was sacked after the confrontation video went viral on social media.
In the video, GHOne TV General Manager, Nana Aba Anamoah, who was one of the judges on the audition of a talent show had revealed that the young man is a notorious troll who had said hurtful things about her and other Ghanaian celebrities on Twitter. His boss in a statement shared on social media stated that his decision to sack Bongo has nothing to do with the clash with Nana, but because he was underperforming at his job. The statement read in part:
“I felt perhaps he couldn’t handle the number of stories a day being given to him, so I told him, I would reduce the stories he would do a day, so he can meet targets and that means a reduction in salary.“He pleaded that I give him November to prove his worth again and gave reasons why he had been underperforming. I agreed and said it’s a challenge then, if you don’t meet the targets again, you will be laid off.”
