Joy News’ Kwame Boateng speaks at Global Sickle Cell Congress


Seth Kwame Boateng, Senior Broadcast Journalist at Joy FM, a lead brand of Multimedia Group Limited, will today leave Ghana for Brazil on the invitation of the Global Sickle Cell Disease Network.

Seth would be participating in the 2 nd Global Congress on Sickle Cell Disease in Rio de Janeiro where he is billed to speak on the topic “PAIN FROM CURSED CELLS” -Sickle cell disease in rural Ghana.

He is expected to speak before a mixed audience of medical and social scientists, public health officials, staff of community-based organizations, and patients and their families.

The invitation comes after a documentary titled “Pains From Cursed Cells”, a documentary on sickle cell disease in rural Ghana. The documentary received a huge endorsement from Ace broadcaster Kwaku Sakyi Addo who had this to say.

“There are some journalists who are doing some brilliant works. I listened to a documentary some few days ago by Seth Kwame Boateng about sickle cell disease. He went into villages and he talked to the real people. He did not just sit in the office and make phone calls.”

Kwaku Sakyi-Addo said it is crucial for journalists to touch base with the people on the ground instead of sitting in their offices and making telephone calls for stories.

Seth Kwame Boateng has for the past two years produced documentaries, some of which captured headlines in some of the major newspapers in the country. The heart-breaking documentaries helped save lives and also got people to change their lifestyles.

A documentary he did last year titled “Deformed” generated a national discussion on the plight of babies born with deformities.

Some other documentaries he has produced include “Infertility, Hypertension, Albinism, Domestic Accident, borrowed manhood, I shake, I fall I die, Buying Life” and many more.
