I’m Strengthened By The Number Of People Who Want To See Me Fail- Ohemaa Woyeje

Renowned Ghanaian on-air personality Ohemaa Woyeje has opened up about the challenges she has faced in her professional career.

In a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz, she shared her experiences of being targeted by haters within her field who have attempted to undermine her success through various means.

She revealed that she has been subjected to sabotage and bullying from all directions by her colleagues.

“I observed that many people in our industry have less tolerance towards their fellow hardworking colleagues, irrespective of working for the same company sometimes. But I am a fighter.

“My inspiration comes from the challenges I face. I am strengthened by knowing the number of people who want to see me fail. That’s where I build my courage. I have been bullied, I have been sabotaged, by both men and women who were my colleagues just because of my capabilities,” she said.

She stated that these challenges she faced only made her stronger, and more courageous and fuelled her determination to succeed.

“I have fought my way through till now. Sometimes, you become what you allow. I won’t let you stop me,” she concluded.

On the same tangent, Ohemaa Woyeje recently emphasized to the Daily Graphic in a dififerent interview that journalists should prioritize living within their means and resist the temptation to compare themselves to others who may have more.

Interestingly, her statement coincided with the release of Serwaa Amihere’s private video, which has sparked rumours that she resorted to such measures to finance her extravagant lifestyle, something that her profession alone couldn’t afford.

Ohemaa argued that professionals in the field are often expected to conform to unrealistic standards, and appearances, or possess certain material possessions, as dictated by some individuals in the media industry.

She deemed these expectations unnecessary and cautioned against succumbing to peer pressure or conforming to these unrealistic ideals, as they could potentially hinder one’s professional longevity.

“My little piece of advice to up-and-coming journalists, presenters and even my established colleagues is that you can be the best when you are yourself. Anything you are trying to become is your master.

“ If you can’t be anything, just be yourself. Don’t allow all these unrealistic standards set by certain people to sway you from your goals, or else you will not last long in the industry. Thrive on originality and carve your path rather than conforming to inconsistent norms.
