Joy Prime To Unveil New Morning Show - Sources Say

Joy Prime, one of the leading indigenous entertainment channels on free-to-air digital television service, Multi TV is set to unveil a new morning TV show according to reliable sources close to management.

Joy Prime, since its inception over two years ago has consistently delivered a very rich and compelling content to its viewers, notably, Tonight starring Andrew Tandoh Adote, Kejetia v Makola, and a host of local movies and telenovelas and will seek to further give their audience another reason to remain glued to their TV sets every morning with the addition of its lifestyle morning show.

Though management of Joy Prime have not confirmed these rumors, our (Cypress Ghana) sources have revealed that plans are far advanced to unveil the new morning show which is expected to provide a refreshing and modern feel when it comes to morning shows in Ghana.

The pattern of political polarization of morning shows in Ghana has alienated a section of viewers who are constantly looking for shows that are unbiased, entertaining and trustworthy.

Hopefully, the new addition will further deepen Joy Prime’s position as a trusted entertainment channel and give viewers a reason to wake up to a fresh beginning every day of the week.

Joy Prime is expected to officially announce plans for the new morning show in the coming weeks.

DJ Arch Jr Breaks Guinness World Record To Become The Youngest Club DJ In The World

South Africa’s favourite DJ, Oratilwe Hlongwane popularly known as DJ Arch Jnr has broken the Guinness World Record to become the youngest club DJ in the world.

The five year old DJ sensation was officially inducted into the record books on Wednesday 13 September, after successfully beating Japanese six-year-old Itsuki Morita’s mark.

DJ Arch Jnr performed his record-breaking hour-long set on 10 June, after his father Glen Hlongwane managed to sneak the youngster into the Platinum Lounge in Cosmo City.

This was DJ Arch’s third attempt at the title his first attempt, which he undertook at the age of three, was unsuccessful, as the young boy wasn’t able to concentrate long enough to complete the hour and his second attempt wasn’t recognised by the global world records body, because his set was performed at a stadium and not in a club or a bar.

DJ Arch Jnr became an instant social media sensation after a video of him mixing a popular house tune went viral in December 2015. Expectations were exceeded after he entered SA’s Got Talent in which he won the 1st prize, with a unique display of performances in a triumphing fashion.
