Kojo Kirkson is a veteran actor who is currently battling with kidney failure. He needs $25,000 to undergo surgery immediately but he has no money to do that. He made an appeal to the public through a video and ITC Media saw it. They decided to come to his aid and help raise the targeted amount. They also donated $2,000 and promised to use their channels to appeal for funds from the general public.
ITC announced it and put out a Momo wallet and an account number via their radio and television channels. During one of their programs on radio, a listener called in to find out how the public will be able to tell if the targeted funds have been raised or not? The listener also sought to find out why the Momo wallet had the name Ameyaw Amui and not Kojo Kirkson. He was concerned anyone can put out a mobile wallet or account number in the name of raising funds for Kojo but; dupe the general public. XYZ Media promised to address his concerns
