Voice of a Generation: We ranked our 10 top Ghanaian female emcees

We love TV. A lot! It’s almost an addiction at this point but we don’t care. From news bulletins to daytime soap operas to reality shows, TV has never been better. Truly, variety is the spice of life.

Speaking of variety, we have been loving the new crop of female emcees taking over Ghanaian TV and the award show space. While many Ghanaian award shows fail to be punctual with their screening (ahem VGMA!), these Ghanaian female emcees never fail to bring it hot and ready, whether on the red carpet or on the main stage.

Their presenting skills are top-notch. These ladies know when to snatch our attention. How to sustain the tempo and when to maintain a crowd’s mood. Amazing and talented women, all of them. We can safely say that Ghanaian TV and events are in safe hands when any of these ten female emcees show up. Plus, their style game is only bested by their talent and hosting techniques.

For us, here are our top 10 female Ghanaian emcees.

Nana Ama McBrown

Our versatile queen and celebrated mistress of TV is without a doubt one of the best Ghanaian emcees. And to think she started out wanting to be a professional football player. Nana Ama McBrown’s talent at hosting shows is a credit to her dedication to creating memorable moments. Using light-hearted jokes alongside professional takes, Nana Ama McBrown is one of our fave picks for Ghanaian emcees, male or female. You can sample her hosting skills with her cooking show McBrown’s Kitchen as seen here.

Peace Hyde

Television producer, journalist and host Peace Hyde is not only one of Ghana’s big role models but also one of her most successful exports. As the West African correspondent for Forbes Africa, Peace Hyde has interviewed some of the continent’s movers and shakers and rubbed shoulders with innovators that are creating impact both home and abroad. For us, Peace Hyde’s eloquence and delivery as an emcee is fast-becoming iconic.

Michelle Attoh

Actress, producer and TV personality, Sika Osei is a Jill of all trades. She was one of two hosts at the 2022 VGMAs and the red carpet of the 8th edition AMVCA. Her emcee skills are best described as “Girl-Next-Door”. Calm and bubbly, Sika Osei hosting on a red carpet is always a delight.

Berla Mundi has been on a roll for us. The lady stays booked all year round and we love that for her. She started out with Rhythmz at GhOne and now she co-hosts the Morning Show on TV3 and near every top-billing event in Ghana. Professional and also charming, Berla Mundi is one of those emcees whose presence soothes an audience.

Now, if you’re looking for someone to host your black suit and tie event then it’s the gorgeous Dentaa that you need. She is elite with her emcee skills. The Ghanaian-British presenter, producer and advocate has some high-rolling hosting experience under her brand. Apart from hosting her own show called the Dentaa Show which highlights black excellence, she is also the founder and CEO of the Ghana UK Based Achievement Awards (GUBA).

When it comes to hard-hitting questions and relevant interviews with the most longevity then it’s host Deloris Frimpong Manso AKA Delay that comes to mind. Delay is one of Ghana’s most prolific hosts and emcees who inspires many young women to enter the media space. Plus, she’s a multi-industrial mogul. Delay means business.

Joselyn Dumas

We haven’t seen Joselyn Dumas host an event in a minute. However, when this Ghanaian emcee does she does it with style and suave. Joselyn Dumas first appeared on Ghanaian screens in the late 2000s with hosting shows on Viasat 1 TV (#sigh the good old days). When she’s not presenting shows or events, you can find her on the big screen in Dilemma as seen on Africa Magic and ShowMax Naija.

AJ Akuoko-Sarpong

Our radio drive time crush is the vivacious AJ Sarpong. On-Air personality AJ Sarpong is fast becoming synonymous to anything CitiTV and we love that. AJ is young and vibrant and one of those hosts who knows when to pitch a witty comment that’s not so hard to grasp. Plus, she great with pop trivia. Citi better get this lady a game show to host already!
