About Us
Madam Afia Ansaa Ampene popularly known as Auntie Afia is the HOSTESS and PRODUCER of the Mmaa Nkommo show. Miss Willie Quatey is the DIRECTOR of the Programme. Mmaa Nkommo is a very popular talk show programme on Ghana Television (GTV). It discusses all issues concerning Women and Children. This issues fall under Social, Moral, Health, Legal, Spiritual, Marital and Traditional values that debase women. The target audience is the general public especially Women and Children.
The Crew at an Awards Ceremony
The birth of this programme has to do with my seven years hosting of GTV's Adult Education in Akan. The then Director of TV, Prof Mark Duodu recognised my expertise in handling the Adult Education Programme and encouraged me to come up with a programme of my own. I gave it a thought and realise there was no Women related TV Programme in Akan so it would be better to introduce one to discuss Women and the numerous Socio-Cultural issues that confront them. I chose the name "Mmaa Nkommo" for the Programme.

The programme was initially sponsored by FAWE (Ghana) Forum for Africa Women Educationists, through the kind effort of Hon. Vida Amadi Yeboah. FAWE also provided the chairs for the participating audience. SSB Bank Ltd came to mind so I approached the Managing Director who together with the Marketing Department of the Bank agreed to use the SSB Moneygram Money Transfer to sponsor the Programme and has since been fully sponsoring the Programme.

The Programme has a team of Researchers and Publicity Officers who help to find the right people as resource persons. Mmaa Nkommo is produced by 3AS PRODUCTIONS, A Radio and Television Company, set up by MADAM AFIA ANSAA AMPENE who produces the programmes and present it as well. Since 3AS Production has no recording facilities yet, it uses Ghana Television facilities, GTV therefore provides the crew to this effect. However, we have four permanent Crew members. They are Miss Willie Quartey: Director of Programmes at GTV and Director for MMAA NKOMMO.
Patience Ampene, Research Officer for MMAA NKOMMO and Emmanuel Asare: set Designer.
