Nana Aba Anamoah

Affable host of the “Divas Show” and eloquent TV3 news anchor Nana Aba Anamoah touched some emotional nerves last Saturday October 13, 2012 at the Dome during the second edition of the Globa RTP Awards.

The cute Television Presenter who won the award for “Television Newscaster Of The Year (Female Category)”, did something very few celebrities will do publicly. After she was announced winner of the category, she walked on stage with a young boy to receive her award, which made everybody wonder who he was and why Nana Aba even decided to come on stage with him.

After she received her award, Nana Aba who looked very emotional, introduced the boy to the crowd as her son and explained how she went through difficult times, at the time she gave birth to him and how the boy has being a blessing to her life. She then presented the award to her son live on stage and told him, he has been an inspiration to her so she dedicates the award to him.

Nana Aba used the opportunity to advise young ladies not to give up in life when they come across challenges like teenage pregnancy and other problems and the neglects, stigmatization and insults those challenges come with, in their youthful days.

She said they shouldn’t give up but rather see the challenge as a blessing in disguise. She said if you are able to endure and overcome you will definitely make it in life.

Nana Aba said she is not endorsing teenage pregnancy but if it happens abortion should not be an option. Even though Nana Aba didn’t really give details of what she went through it was obvious her son means the world to her.

She said she owes all her happiness and success to her son. Her son JY Paa Kow Anamoah is eleven years old and according his mother he bears her surname because she is a single mother.

This unexpected and emotional gesture by Nana Aba touched everybody’s heart and some people in the crowd were seen shedding tears of joy for how proud she is of his son and the fact that she went against all odds to do this publicly. Her son will definitely never forget this magic moment.

Congratulations to Nana Aba Anamoah and her unconditional love for her son.
