The CEO and President of Diaspora Network Television (DNT) Jermaine Nkrumah who is a known advocate for diaspora engagement said: “unbeknownst to much of the Ghanaian public, Kafui Dey lived in Beijing, China and London, UK in his early childhood days so he embodies the diaspora story that we refer to at DNT and so when he decided to come on board this journey to connect the diaspora to the African continent much more effectively, we couldn’t contain our excitement”.
Mr. Dey will host a new show called “The Next MP” on his new home channel. With Ghanaians going to the polls in December 2020 to elect their members of Parliament and President, Kafui Dey’s first task on DNT is to help electorates with FACTS about the various aspirants to decide who to vote for.

THE CROWN: Netflix’s Biggest Shows Set Wrap Up After Its Fifth Season
Earlier this year, it emerged that The Crown, one of Netflix’s biggest shows, would wrap up after its fifth season. But it has reversed course, as it’s returning to creator and writer Peter Morgan’s initial concept of a six-season run for the Royal Family drama.
“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” Morgan told Variety in a statement. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
By the time it ends, The Crown will cover Queen Elizabeth II’s life up to the early 2000s. So, it won’t touch on more recent events, such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the Royal Family.
Filming on season four wrapped up just before the onset of COVID-19 lockdowns in the UK. That season is expected to hit Netflix later in 2020, a year or so after season three premiered. It’ll bring an end to Oscar-winner Olivia Colman’s two-season stint as Queen Elizabeth II, as Imelda Staunton is taking over the role for the final two seasons.

According to award-winning Disk Jockey who is yet to release her debut album “Original Cuppy”, the Apple owned firm being her ally for music has now literally enabled her craft and secured a slot in the music ecosystem. She made this agreement public in a video in which was shared on 7 July.
