Nana Aba hit hard at Viasat1 in 2014 after the station released nominations for the maiden edition of the Jigwe Awards, whereTV3 was nominated in the Copycat of the Year category. The presenter, who was then working at TV3, did not take the nomination lightly, and lambasted Viasat1 for coming up with the parody award. She also insulted the TV station’s studio, calling it “small” and comparing their green colour to “kontomire”. The category was eventually withdrawn from the awards, but it did not take the shine from the event.
In an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Drive on Wednesday, about a year later, Nana Aba apologised to Viasat1, saying that the station should not be offended by her ‘joke’. “I apologise to Viasat1 if they are offended by my kontomire jab, it was a joke,”she said.
