He has also worked with browngh.com.
A social media manager also, he manages Accra 100.5 FM's Ayekoo Ayekoo midmorning show and the weekend Entertainment Capital programme, both hosted by the award-winning Nana Romeo.

On Saturday, November 18, he narrated to Entertainment Capital's sit-in host, Prince Benjamin (PB), how his journey started.
He delivered an acceptance speech for his Eminent Awards 2023 trophy and thanked the late Dr Cann and Nana Romeo for their words of encouragement, guidance and collaboration.
"I thank my host Nana Romeo profusely. I was with Happy FM when he told me I am very good and so he looked forward to working with me.
"I thank Dr Cann also, he is the one who brought me into the radio industry. I initially wanted to do sports or politics but he encouraged me to take up entertainment. After a while working in the entertainment field, he praised me in front of my mates, telling them I would be very great one day, and so I am not surprised I have won this award.
"When it comes to content creation, all the top pundits, no one excluded, agree my topics and production are exceptional.
"Mind you, by God's grace I worked with the late Dr Cann, a great man of the entertainment industry. He was one of the best at entertainment punditry.
"Nana Romeo, who brought me to Accra FM, currently is the best when it comes to trendy one-on-one radio interviews. I thank him greatly.
"I thank all the musicians also. They honour our invitations and colour our shows. I have interacted with about 95 per cent of the top ones, either by phone or one-on-one, with the exception of Daddy Lumba. So I thank God for facilitating my work.
"I can speak of many things till morning. I handle social media and production here at Accra FM – I am more popular for the social media work but what a lot of people don't know is that when it comes to production for entertainment, Romeo is my witness, when he says: 'He's smart'.
"Thank you," an excited Eugene Baah said.
