One man who made life on radio fun and quite frightful in Kumasi in the early 2000’s was Otwinoko. Born Linsford Kwabena Asare but professionally known as Otwinoko is arguably the greatest radio personality ever to steer the console in the Ashanti Region.
Otwinoko is believed to have started his mainstream radio at Mercury 91.5FM and hosted a ‘mysterious’ program dubbed ‘Nsem Pii’. His fame and recognition became very great when he exposed one Yaw Donkor who murdered a palm wine tapper and seller, Marfo at Nyinahini in 2004.
As his popularity increased, he got poached by then newly established multimedia radio station Nhyira FM in Kumasi. After three years, Otwinoko moved to Fox FM where a great calamity strike him where he got hit by a mysterious sickness which made him lose sight.
Although he’s back on the radio and he’s currently at Kumasi FM but according to controversial evangelist Addai, who recently called the owner of the Despite group of companies, Mr Osei Kwame Despite an occult, Otwinoko has faked his blindness.
The controversial evangelist has in a video describe as fake the blindness of Otwinoko. He is heard saying that some antics and actions performed by Otwinoko contradict that of a blind person.
“I can say this on authority that radio presenter Otwinoko is not blind. He’s faking his alleged blindness!! They say some prophets caused his blindness because he spoke against their works in his hay days. This is never true because there’s no prophet in Ghana. Otwinoko’s blindness is nothing but mind games when you monitor and critically analyse his actions and antics. A blind person can’t do that”, Evangelist Addai revealed.
