The actor after seven years in the United Kingdom returned home and was employed to host ‘Drive Time Show’, the afternoon show. He was brought in after the departure of Abeiku Santana but after five months his contract was abruptly terminated.
Speaking on Joy FM’s cosmopolitan Mix, Mikki Osei Berko said he was not sacked as some section of the media reported, but his contract was terminated and till date, no one has given him a reason for that decision.

To the actor, it was premature for the management of the station to terminate his contract because he was doing the very best to add to the existing numbers he came to meet, though some things were a bit new to him.
Master Richard also revealed that the termination of his appointment broke his heart because he left everything to return to Ghana and to the job. He, however, stated categorically that he will not turn down any appointment from any radio station.
