The Ghanaian entertainment industry has gone through several phases, with each coming with its unique way of keeping the viewers craving for more.

About two decades ago, when there was no social media, Ghanaians were still richly entertained with some quality TV shows that nobody liked to miss for any reason.

YEN.com.gh takes a look at 7 of those captivating shows that were arguably even more enjoyable than today’s social media.

1. Things We Do For Love

This show focused on the youth and how they went about their lives. The young ones tried to live how they pleased but their parents were in their way to groom them appropriately.

2. Taxi Driver 

Taxi Driver was a very hilarious TV show that captured that day-to-day life of Ghanaians moving from place to place and also had some very important lessons to share.

3. Key Soap Concert Party

Arguably one of the most popular shows to be aired on television, the Key Soap Concert Party was a stage comedy nobody like to miss for any reason.

4. Thursday Theatre

The series introduced some distinguished characters who shared the Ghanaian narratives with a touch of dexterity and a sense of pride.

5. Agoro

‘Agoro’ was a TV game show produced by Charterhouse that aired on GTV on Saturdays. It was hosted by David Dontoh and helped viewers learn about Ghanaian history, culture and social life.

6. By the Fire Side

This was a highly entertaining TV show that told Ghanaian Ananse and folktale stories that were acted out by enthusiastic children with singing and dancing.

7. Kyekyekule

Kyekyekule was a television series hosted by Uncle George Laing. He and his television crew moved from one school to the other to entertain, educate as well as learn with the children, which was then telecast at a later date.

In other news, three beautiful Ghanaian models Nana Yaa, Yacoba and Maame B, all living with autism, who were trained by the founder of Afi Antonio Foundation paid a courtesy call on Ghana’s First Lady Her Excellency Rebecca Akufo-Addo at her office on February 27, 2020. Information gathered by YEN.com.gh indicates that the group, including the parents of the models, led by founder Afi Antonio was warmly welcomed by Mrs. Akufo-Addo as she spent quality time with them. Afi used the opportunity to explain the exploits of the Foundation and invited the first lady to the Pan African Congress on Autism (PACA) as well as the 2nd edition of Autism Talent Show which would both be held in April 2020.
