Despite Media, owners of Peace FM, UTV, Okay FM and a host of other media outlets has dissociated itself from an endowment fund created to raise funds to cater for the family of a late employee, Kwadwo Wiafe Annor.
There was an earlier flyer on social media entreating people to contribute to the fund. The flyer indicated that the fund was to take care of the family of the late presenter who was working with Neat FM.
Social media users roasted them for the iniative with many suggesting that a media group of Despite’s stature should be able to cater for the family of a late employee.
Having read all the bad comments on social media, the company has issued a rejoinder to distance itself from the said fund.
The company noted that, the fund is the brainchild of some friends and well wishers and as such the company has no connection to the fund. They entreated their business partners to disregard such a fund. Below is the full statement.
“Rejoinder – Kwadwo Wiafe Endowment Fund
The management of Despite Media has learnt with grave concern the establishment of such an Endowment Fund for the family of our late employee Kwadwo Wiafe Circulating on social media.
