I made presenting in Twi prestigious – Delay

Award-winning Radio and Television personality, Deloris Frimpong Manso popularly known as Delay has revealed that she IS one of the few people who have made the “Twi” presentation “prestigious.”

According to the “Delay Show” host, she was labelled as someone who couldn’t speak English in the early years of her television career because at the time English was more prevalent when presenting.

According to Delay, her colleagues like Jeremy, Doreen Andoh, Wolf, Caroline Sampson, and other young, well-liked English-speaking presenters were mentioned as ruling the scene at the time.

“Of course. I will boldly say I made Twi presenting prestigious because remember when I came on television the first time, years ago, people tagged me as a villager because I was speaking Twi because at that time it was Maame Dokono and some other older presenters who spoke Twi. English was the thing for all the youngsters like  Caroline Sampson, Jeremy, Doreen Andoh … so I was like a weird person. But today, Vodafone, Coca Cola, Ideal Milk obiaa billboard they’ll find Twi and put there… Twi has become the new flex,” Delay said in an interview on Pure FM.

Though she stated that nothing she often says when presenting is written, “It’s just on the spot… once I psych myself up to do it, I’ll just do it. I can just create something,” she added.

Delay claimed that the environment she found herself in as a child had a significant impact on how she spoke; her grandmother is the source of her linguistic skills and eloquence.

“I realised I needed to do something different. So, I was intentional about it”, she said in response to the question “Was it deliberate from the beginning?”
