Following the departure of Abeiku from Adom FM, many were those who thought the Tema-based station would lose listenership in droves.

However the likes of Jerry Justice, Poppa Bills, Afia Pokua and Adakabre held their own well.

In that regard, the gentleman who was given the responsibility of handling Abeiku's show, Dr Prekese, has acquitted himself quite well.

Kwame Dwumah Mensah aka Dr Prekese started his radio career at the University of Education, Winneba, on the campus radio station, after which he proceeded to Kyzz FM, followed by Goodnews FM in Takoradi.

Prior to his stint in Takoradi, Prekese had hosted the ' Morning Show' at Kessben FM in Kumasi, where he carved a niche for himself with his witty and humorous handling of issues.

It was therefore little wonder that two years ago he joined the Tema-based Adom FM as the substitute for Abeiku Santana.

While he warmed the bench, he was given the mantle to handle ' Kasa Hare' following the departure of Dr Duncan. So it was a case of Dr go Dr come.

Having proven a mark, he was transferred to Kumasi to handle the 'Drive' on Nhyira FM , where he introduced a novelty that he brought back to Adom - live worship on 'Ofie Kwanso'.

This segment dubbed 'Live Worship and Adansidie' is one of the most popular segments on the show.

Another novelty on the show is 'Biribi Wom' with Efo, where Prekese and Efo take issues and handle them humorously and sometimes satirically.

Dr Prekese is currently on a three-week vacation and promises to be back with a bang. In his absence, Eddie Kay, Kormantie Abrantie will drive folks home on 'Ofie Kwanso'.
