Bongo Ideas before GHone TV auditions 2021

Bongo Ideas was relatively unknown before November 2021, when he went for auditions at the studios of GhOne TV. He had gone there ostensibly to partake in a reality show dubbed “The Next TV Star.”

Things did not go as planned, as he was called out by the judges for writing some critiques about them that they found quite offensive and unacceptable. Due to that, Bongo Ideas was confronted, thrown out, and chased out of the precincts of the media house.

A video was later shared on social media by celebrated Ghanaian journalist Nana Aba Anamoah, who sort of ridiculed and made fun of Bongo Ideas, who almost wet his pants during the hot session. He tried to explain himself but choked on his words; he couldn’t articulate his ideas as clearly as he did on social media.

That particular video went viral [watch the video HERE], crossing borders, with people even making memes from it. Bongo Ideas, subsequently, narrated his side of the story on Twitter, which attracted a huge audience and a following because he writes excellently.

Thereafter, he was interviewed by radio and television stations and online, where he continued to meticulously detail how the judges ganged up against him for what he wrote about them on social media. Considering the unfair treatment meted out to him by Nana Aba Anamaoh, Bridget Otoo, and Ser Amihere, who were the judges, he successfully garnered social sympathy and had many people rooting for him.

Bongo Ideas used publicity to boost its future social media presence. His followers grew exponentially from 5K to almost 20K within two weeks. Since then, his social media presence has been getting bigger, better, and greater.

He was the top personality on Ghana’s social media in 2022 with his far-reaching tweets and opinions, which most of the time ruffled feathers and left a sour taste in the mouths of those who failed to agree with him.
