Johnnie Hughes Condemned For Referring To A Short Immigration Officer As Kapoipoi

A critic in the entertainment space, Fred Kyei Mensah has taken on Broadcast Journalist Johnnie Berresford Hughes for referring to a ‘short’ Immigration Officer as ‘kapoipoi’.

Johnnie Hughes in one of his exposès on the Immigration Service refered to a short officer as Kapoipoi.

He could not fathom how and why the said officer made it into the service considering the fact that several people were disqualified due to their height.

To him, it smacks of corruption since such an individual challenged with height should not have made it to the service.

But reacting to Johnnie Hughes’ rants, Fred Kyei Mensah condemned Johnnie Hughes for refering to the officer as Kapoipoi.

To him, the TV3 Morning Show host could have used a better deacription for the young man.

Read His Post Below

LET’S TREAD CAUTIOUSLY.

I chanced upon a video this morning on my nephew, Kwasi Osei-Danso Ofori-Atta Facebook page and, watched an exposé on the Ghana Immigration Service about the selection or recruitment procedures adopted by them by the indefatigable brother of mine, Johnnie Beresford Hughes of TV3 on his program, “Johnnies Bite. Ordinarily, i would have called him behind the scenes to “spank” him but since he brought it in the public domain, i need to also address it here. No malice intended anyemi.

In doing so, he described and referred to one successful applicant to the Ghana Immigration Service as “kapoepoe” that is the parlance used in describing “little people” which i find a bit demeaning looking at the body language he Johnnie used in referring to him live on TV3.

Recently, a friend of mine, Anthony Osarfo, shared his experience in the USA when he referred to the “little people” there in an interview as “diminutive”. They didn’t take it lightly and he had to apologize unreservedly.

From my little research, people of such heights, are recruited into the security service, based on certain “special and professional” occupations they have. For example, a prolific instrumentalist, a medical doctor or any other person in a specialized field, can be engaged in the security service without recourse to their height. I stand for correction.

I don’t think, this guy who didn’t recruit himself into the Immigration Service, needs not to be humiliated like this on tv. At least, his face, could have been covered to avoid such societal name calling. He didn’t chose his height when he was born.

The Crown Season 5 Release Date, Cast and Everything You Need To Know

The Crown Season 5 Release Date, Cast and Everything You Need To Know

The Crown is an excellent Netflix Original show, loosely based on the real-world events following the political rivalries and romances of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as well as events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Brilliantly dramatised of course, to make for a great watch.

Seasons 1 to 4 have given us all a history lesson from the 1940s to the 1980s, and after Margaret Thatcher and Lady Diana Spencer both debuted in season 4, all eyes are on season 5 and which events we will see next.

Here’s everything you need to know about season 5 of The Crown, including who has been cast, when it was released and what we can expect.

The Crown season 5 release date: When is it out?

Netflix released season five of The Crown on 9 November 2022. Season 4 of The Crown arrived on Netflix in November 2020, so we’ve been waiting two years.

Season 3 appeared two years after season 2 of The Crown though, along with the new cast, so it’s not surprising season 5 and its new cast have arrived when they have.

How and where to watch The Crown season 5

Season 5 of The Crown is only available to watch on Netflix. 

The show is a Netflix Original, like Bridgerton, so you if you want to watch it, then you’ll need to be subscribed to Netflix.

How many episodes will there be in The Crown season 5?

There are 10 episodes in The Crown season 5. 

Seasons 1 to 4 all have 10 episodes, resulting in a total of 40 episodes prior to season 5 being released, so it’s unsurprising season 5 stuck to the same format, especially as a season 6 is planned.

What is expected to happen in The Crown season 5?

The Crown season 5 will carry on from where season 4 left off, which is the latter part of 1990. It is expected that season 5 will therefore cover the 1990s, though it is not totally confirmed which exact events will be given airtime or what showrunner Peter Morgan will focus on.

There’s quite a few to choose from though, including the fire at Windsor castle in 1992, the Queen’s 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne and the breakdown of several of her children’s marriages. All of those appear to be present based on the first full trailer for the show, which you can watch at the top of the page.

There’s also Princess Diana in the second half of the decade. Not only her interview with journalist Martin Bashir, but also her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996 and her tragic death in 1997. The season will cover the death, but Netflix told The Sun: “The exact moment of the crash impact will not be shown”.
