A strong, blunt and opinionated young woman as she is, it came as a surprise when news flooded several blogs that Caroline Sampson, a celebrated TV/Radio personality and rapper quit pursuing her passion because of a blunt comment she passed on female Ghanaian artist Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah otherwise known as MzBel.
On Thursday May 31, news went viral that the host of ShoutsOnY, a music request show on Accra based Y107.9FM had in an interview with Nii Kpakpo Thompson on Tonight on Viasat 1 TV revealed she quit television programme Celebrity Fan Zone because of MzBel.
However, speaking to www.nydjlive.com in interview, the media personality who recently celebrated a decade in the industry, Caroline explained her submission was only misinterpreted and that her decision to quit was quite personal.
“I quit as a co-host because people were not ready to accept situations as they are and preferred I massaged issues which I wasn’t ready for. I have my own principles and I stick to that. I’m blunt, just like that.
That was what the show was supposed to be and not to save situations just because of our relations with people. I only cited MzBel’s case as one of the moment’s I realized it was just me against the world. I didn’t quit because of her”, she said.
Many were surprised at her reason for quitting and felt heartbroken. Among them is Diamond Appiah (a staunch critic of MzBel) who shared a lengthy post on Instagram. According to her, the industry was full of fake people and needed honest and blunt people like Caroline to put things right.

“My dear Caroline, how can a hardworking media personality like u quit a Tv Show bcos of a Goddam Liar ?? Am really heartbroken to read this bcos anybody that know her personally know the fact that she is living a Lie, lies a lot n always lie for public sympathy. Didn’t she create the impression to all that the man was responsible until he came out with the truth? You never lied dear, what u said on the show was the truth so quitting for speaking the truth is unacceptable. We need honest ppl like u on our Tv screens n airwaves so consider going back to the show with ur awesomeness. Never quit anything in life bcos of ppl’s opinions bcos opinions doesn’t pay bills. Keep being Real!”
