Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Everybody has a life story…some will have a low-beginning and later have a happy end—and the vice versa.

Radio presenter and Television personality, Deloris Frimpong Manso popularly known as Delay, has revealed how she made a dramatic comeback to put her career back on track after she failed along the way.

According to her, the beginning doesn’t really matter—but what matters most is how one can mend the broken pieces—and fight ahead to reach their aspirations.

The outspoken media mogul in a facebook post on Sunday, revealed how her career crushed—and later get it back on track.

“The only thing you start from the top is when you’re digging a grave. I started as a presenter at life FM in nkawkaw when I was only seventeen in 1999. I used to be called Frimpomaa on radio then. When my mum died in in 2003 I gave up on my dream for some 2 years and went back into radio in 2005-6 when top radio came back on air. Got on presenters guide in 2007 and was hired by Oman FM that year. Got replaced on Onie after just 8 episode.

“I was crushed but kept it to myself and went back to the drawing table… Came up with the Delay show which was first aired on the 4th of April the following year and Smooch too. Afia Schwarzenegger came on in 2011, Delay Mackerel in 2012 and in 2015 after taking some 2 years to make this brands even stronger, I did the Delay tomato paste and Delay Sardines. You see, I am an orphan who was left with two siblings to cater for and no money, support or hope,” she wrote.

She disclosed that, she didn’t allow the intimidation from her critics to have any bad effect on her dream.

“When I came into this industry I was labeled “not beautiful enough, bush amongst other demeaning tags”… But that didn’t stop me.. Today I’ve employed over 35 workers some with families and we are still on it. And I am more than excited as I get ready to introduce COCOA BROWN. Thank you dearly Miss Jay @smoochgh and @niihalifax . Doesn’t matter where you are today!!!,” she said.
