Why Is Jeremie’s ‘Whatever’ Using Vulgar Langauge on YFM, Where Are The Managers? Remember Children Listen To Radio Too.. Geez!

Radio is one of the most powerful tools of communication. It is very important that radio presenters use appropriate language on air as you may never know who is listening. After all, my 7 year old sister likes radio too. (Please do not corrupt her language for me..)

Even though I hardly listen to radio, anytime I do, I go for the best. I have picked YFM as my best but  was disappointed this morning on my way going to Kumasi to witness an album launch. The station was locked on YFM where Jeremie, one of the best female presenters was busy doing her things on the Saturday Morning Live (SML).

She invited rappers D-Black and Kwaku T to the studio to have a chat  concerning their lifestyle and also to find out who among them is the ‘bad’ one, not bad as in spoilt she said.

Seriously, though the discussion was quite interesting, Jeremie continuously use words I find  inappropriate on air, she constantly was saying ‘whatever’ whenever she did not agree with her guest,  ‘shut up’ or ‘piss off’ to shut them up.  (Piss off on a repeat early morning on radio in Ghana is a No No, this is not some late night show..)

I believe YFM has a lot of listeners , therefore such unwarranted lingo on air is just unaccepted. Jeremie is good so she must stop the ‘whatevers’, the ‘shut ups’ and the ‘piss offs’ whenever she is on air else……

    • @gambo, This article is not useless. Little kids should be protected at all cost from bad language. If you don’t mind your little one picking up bad language on air well there are other wo does care. There is a show which the hipop star ” Young Lloyd” was interviewed and I don’t know who told that presenter that she can say “fine ass brother” on air. Its ridiculous.

      • @ghallday, and sarkodie too..i luv him to pieces..but he need to stop using da word nigga “to ma niggas on da block”..i saw a video of him and awal, that talented kid that rap fast like sarkodie and he was using the N’ word too wen he was performing with sarkodie with a lot of kids around..i dont no why but ghanaians and Africans as a whole don’t take derogatory words serious..i don’t know if its the pronounciation or wut..I didn’t take it serious either..i was all focused on the kid and how amazing he is..I understand our schools teaches about slavery but we need to go deeper and teach our kids about the N’word and it origination cuz there’s nothing funny about it…i remember coming from church wit my uncle one sunday nd he used the F word cuz some dude tryed to cut infront of him..he said “wo y3 forking paa” lol.. I’m like wow, but i was laughing kuraa…ghanaians use forking way too much as if is different from the original pronounciation and spelling *fucking*…i guess most of us probably don’t know the meaning of it or we just like to ignore the fact that its wrong..I must say I’m guilty too..smh

        • @nanayaa, LOL…so true nanayaa. When I was child back in Gh I heard people say ” wo y3 focking boy/girl paa” and I didn’t see anything wrong with it. But after living out of Ghana for many years now I know it is such a terrible thing to use the word “fucking” . Sarkodie is one of the best musicians in my book. he uses “to my honies on that block” and that should be good enough. Now on Gh tv, you hear the words “ass, damn, god-damn, bullsh*t and many more.In one movie which is seen a “family movie” Jackie Appiah use the word “fuck” . It has got to stop.

  1. It is only in Ghana that this can happen. How can a presenter be using such foul language on air?  If it was UK or America where children is known to be listening to such a show  and without any prior warning she did this, she would have been fired by now.

    GC is asking where a manager is? she is a woman, she might have bought her manager with the thing in between her legs. They should discipline or sack her if she indeed did this.

    • when the black man uses the “n” word, its ok. ironic when the white man uses it, we call him racist. @nanayaa its not a ghanaian or an african thing, its called black hypocrisy! the thing with insult is, its universal, you say to an italian, greek, french or ma illiterate uncle from brofoyedru “fuck off” they understand it. and for the records, chris rock used the “n” word live on bbc last year at least all the poor girl said was piss off.

      • @dagodfather,lol true that. A  prominent white wo/man dares not use the “n” word or his career will fizzle and his life ruined. al Sharpton and the rev. Jesse Jackson will make sure of that. lol. But blacks uses and that has also got to stop. That’s double standard.

  2. Miss Malaika was launched…hmm..publicity oooo….well with Jeremi, i think it’s competition, she’s the best on tv with 4syte, done her thing at vibe, and it’s like there is no challenge for her…so it makes her feel like the mtv chick of Ghana.she dey flow wit da blerrr, but must constantly be thinking of improving her interviewing skills..listened to her once with Chase Da Inc, loved that interview, but i guess she has to keep up the standard because a lot of junior and senior high chicks wanna be like her..People are starting to take things seriously in Ghana now,

  4. Jeremie o Jeremie, this is one person who feels she’s all that. from her days at Vibe fm,i haven’t reali been enthused abou’ her style of presentation. i have no problem when she uses dese words in a late night show but to use dem in a morning show with everybody listening is so so unfortunate.why do u interview some1 and try to steal the interview by makin it all about u.these station managers must sit up and do the right thing.anybody on radio feels they can do whteva they want.

  5. i totally agree. She has to relax wid those words i think she goes overboard most of the tyme. Jeremie is a gr8 presenter but she needs to knw that sum ppl in ghana take stuff personal.
