An entertainment pundits, Nash Iddi and DJ Bat have taken with a pinch of salt, the news making rounds that Mohammed Abdul Fatawu widely known as DJ Zola is on 2,000 Ghana cedis monthly salary by his current employer, Dagbon FM, which is an offshoot of Class Media.

Nash, who has been in the northern entertainment industry for long doubted the news, when he was commenting on Mohammed Hafiz, the trender’s post on the recent programme changes by Dagbon FM, taking King Lyrical off the drive time for Zola to take over.

According to him, no radio station in northern region can pay its presenter the said amount, adding that only one station can do that, though it is not yet operational.

“2K ? Only 1 station can do that. They are not even in Business yet”, the former host of Monday Night Celebrity Show on radio Tamale commented on G-face’s post.

It will be recalled that hypermediagh.com published a story on May 8, with the headline – “DJ ZOLAH AND UMAR JANDA JOINS DAGBON FM, SET TO ERN GHC2,000 MONTHLY EACH”.

The story continued to say “Hababu Umar Janda, a popular comic actor and a learned radio personality, together with Mohammed Abdul-Fataw, an equally famous media practitioner, have joined Tamale-based Dagbon FM 102.5mhz a few weeks after quitting Radio Tamale.”

“The two experienced presenters were both workers for Radio Tamale. A few weeks ago, DJ Zolah announced his end of contract with the station, alleging that he was treated unjustly for an issue he had with a colleague presenter at the same station, Mr. Tell. On a phone call with the general manager of Dagbon FM, Bitter Flesh, he confirmed to HYPE MEDIA GH that his institution (Dagbon Fm) has agreed terms with the two presenters. He also revealed that each will receive GH2,000 per month”, it added.

Meanwhile, Zaa TV/Radio’s Amidu Abdu Rahim popularly known as DJ also believed no media house pays its staff up to 1,000 GHC apart from his employer.

“Apart from zaa radio and zaa tv
No radio station her in the north pays it’s workers up to GH1000. I can bet this with my life. Especially those djs who play only music and can’t do any other task. Read news, read announcements and play music. No manager will pay you GH2000. To come and play music. Even computer can play music by itself. If you want a premium at your work place be a multi player”, he wrote.
