Media personality and host of Adom TV’s Kumkum Bhagya series Adwoa Saah reveals how a friend stole her business idea and gave it to actress Nana Ama Mcbrown
In an interview with Nkosuohene on Omega Live TV, Adwoa Saah disclosed that a very close friend of hers stole her business idea.
According to her, after participating in Ghana’s Most Beautiful show, she presented “Bariman Nkwan” on Adom Tv but the program could not continue after the 3rd season because of some sponsorship misunderstanding with Adom Tv
I came to present ‘bariman nkwan’ on Adom TV and that was the first time after GMB, I had presented in Twi. And the program discontinued after the 3rd season because Adom TV couldn’t sustain the agreement with its sponsors, Rico
So I decided to put something together with a friend on Adom TV and I ended up being cheated. It was a cooking show in which she used someone to replace me and person ended up snatching the whole show from her
Talking more about how she got cheated by a friend, Adwoa explained that the show was sent to UTV and renamed ‘Aben show’ which was different from her original idea and design named ‘my man can cook’.
A friend I attend the same church with decided to do a TV show. After listening to her idea, I told her it wouldn’t sell so we should rather do a cooking show. I didn’t even want to share my ideas with her but she promised me she wouldn’t steal if I do. And that we would share the proceeds 50/50
I was bringing the idea and she was providing money for the pilot(idea). I am bringing the idea, will present it and the name wasn’t even ‘Aben show’ but a different name ‘ my man can cook
she further said
Adwoa, however, continued to explain that her friend and her lawyer present called her to a meeting to tell her that, they can’t split the profit 50/50 but rather give her 35% for Adwoa and she would take 65%.
After the meeting, Adwoa said she felt cheated and decided to leave the show for her,only to realise days later that, Mcbrown is hosting the same show – borne from her idea– on UTV.
She said, her friend later met her in town and made a comment that because she was lagging or not serious, that’s why she is using Mcbrown as the host.
Interestingly, her friend proposed she should come and host a similar show she was ‘cooking up’ for metro Tv, but that didn’t even materialize.
It is important to note that, it was the ‘Aben show’ on UTV that has transformed to ‘Mcbrown’s kitchen’ which is executively produced by Nana Ama Mcbrown and her husband Maxwell Mensah.
