A popular Ghanaian TV station is facing embarrassment and ridicule after accidentally showing hardcore porn on live TV.
GHOne TV on Thursday night showed the explicit content during the station’s broadcast of relationship and sex talk show, DUVET, which aired at about the same time President Akufo-Addo was addressing the nation on COVID-19 pandemic.
Few hours after the show aired, the Acting General Manager of GHOne TV, Nana Aba Anamoah issued an apology to Ghanaians for showing a pornographic video on their late-night programme, Duvet.
In the statement issued on Twitter, she said: ‘GHOne TV wishes to sincerely apologise to its cherished viewers on the unfortunate turn of events regarding your favourite late night programme, DUVET, a few hours ago . Even though the show is X-rated, we concede that the nature of the content tonight was inappropriate.
‘Meanwhile, tonight’s edition was taken off a few minutes into the show. The President’s 6th address on government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic was fully aired.
‘Whilst we promise that this incident will not repeat itself, we will also ensure that the officers responsible for the mishap are sanctioned. Kindly accept our apology, with any inconvenience caused, deeply regretted. Thank you.’
