Nana served as panel member of a lot of entertainment discussion programmes on radio and television.

He also worked as a board member for several award schemes including the Peoples’ Celebrity Awards.

Nana Turkson recently lambasted Martin Aboagye on Zylofon FM for asking celebrities who are into bread making to stop because they are risking the lives of Ghanaian youth in the streets.

According to him, what the movie producer said, was totally wrong because there will be no employment for these street sellers should they be forced to stop selling.

Turkson, however, added that people are in the streets selling not because they want to be there but because of unemployment in Ghana and until employment is created for them, putting a stop to it will never be possible.

“If they want them off the street, they need to provide jobs for the youth. Thousands of students graduate every year, how are they supposed to make ends meet when there are no secured jobs”, he said.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.
