A heated dispute between Kevin Taylor and Nana Yaa Brefo erupted after Kevin Taylor accused Nana Yaa Brefo of undermining the viewership of Nana Ama McBrown’s show, ‘Onua Showtime’. This led to a fiery exchange of insults and threats between the two on social media platforms. The altercation has been marked by hostility and aggression, with both parties showing no signs of backing down.
What sparked the fight
In an attempt to defend Nana Ama McBrown against accusations of buying over 10,000 views on Facebook during the launch of her show, Kevin Taylor launched an attack on journalist Nana Yaa Brefo. Brefo had expressed the opinion that social media following or viewership should not be the sole yardstick for measuring success in the media industry.
Brefo wrote on Facebook in Pidgin English, questioning why McBrown did not give her the same numbers for her fans if Facebook numbers were such a big deal. She also emphasized that the job of a TV or radio personality is not about social media platforms like Facebook, TikTok, or Instagram. During a Facebook Live, Brefo further noted that she was not jealous of McBrown, as they were not in the same lane.
However, Kevin Taylor was infuriated by Brefo’s comments and labeled her a ‘hater.’ He admitted that McBrown might not be the best presenter or the most intelligent lady to host a show in Ghana, but he emphasized that she had something extraordinary that most ladies did not possess.
According to Taylor, McBrown had a unique attribute that drew people to her, which was beyond her acting skills. He advised people to learn from her and discover their own unique traits. In contrast, he claimed that Brefo was flat and not versatile, as she did not possess any exceptional quality.
In summary, Kevin Taylor attacked Nana Yaa Brefo for her opinion on the importance of social media following or viewership in the media industry, while defending Nana Ama McBrown’s unique trait that drew people to her.
