Six weeks of intense, knowledge-filled competition ended with Joseph Nii Tettey Ashong merging winner of the second edition of Joy FM’s radio reality show, “The Scholarship”.

The grand finale of the country’s first radio educational reality show took place on Saturday November, 7, at the African Regent Hotel with each of the four finalists hoping to win the second edition of the show.

Eight scholars came face-to-face in weekly radio battle on Joy 99.7 FM to see who will stand the test of time but on the final day, it was a clash between three finalists, Charles Senya, Priscilla Dziedzorm Ayebi and Joseph Nii Tettey Ashong.

The final three candidates battled through four rounds of questioning on general knowledge, energy and a brain teaser.

The judges; Joy FM Super Morning Show Host, Kojo Yankson, Energy Advisor with GIZ, Alan Lartey, Managing Director of Alldens Lane, Ruka Sanusi and a representative from the Dundee University Joanne Rendell also tested the candidates’ knowledge on subjects of their choice.

At the end of the gruelling encounter, Charles Senya’s hope of winning the enviable £30,000 Scholarship to the University of Dundee, Scotland, was dashed as he was evicted.

The competition was now between Joseph Nii Tettey Ashong and Priscilla Dziedzorm Ayebi.

The Director, MBA programmes at the University of Dundee, Dr Brian Howieson was also present at the event.
