I want to be the male version of Delay – Arnold Mensah

Arnold Mensah ElavanyoArnold Mensah Elavanyo, the host of the only social media celebrity talk show, Vibes In 5, says he aims at being a fierce and skillful interviewer like Delay, who asks her guests questions that beat the imagination of everyone.

Certain persons have raised concerns about how Vibes In 5 is gradually becoming a ‘sex talk’ interview. While some claim Arnold’s questions to celebrities are becoming too erotic, others seem to enjoy where the show is heading.

Speaking exclusively to Flex newspaper, Arnold mentioned Oman FM’s presenter, Deloris Frimpong-Manso, aka Delay, as one major person he gathers inspiration for interviewing from. “I have currently moved from conducting interviews for fun, to conducting interviews for results. There should always be something left on the minds of people when I wrap up with my interviews. I take inspiration from Delay a lot. I want to be the male version of Delay,” Elavanyo disclosed.

“People pretend to dislike sex talks in public, but that’s what they want to hear. My interviews come in two parts. The first part is work related and the second is for my diabolism. Aside the big names passing through the show, there should be extra factors that will make people download the show,” he added. Unlike the long list of show hosts who keep asking celebrities the same set of questions every time, Arnold on the contrary strives to be dynamic on a weekly basis.

According to him, nothing on his show is staged or scripted. The guests or their managers, he said, are not even given any synopsis prior to the interviews. As if there are no cameras, he makes his guests feel so comfortable that they tend to reveal genuine things about themselves.“Someway somehow, Vibes In 5 thrives on controversies, and it gets our guests trending. I am therefore not changing my line of questioning. Ghana should be ready for a friendly platform that makes celebrities feel at home and says whatever they wish to,” he concluded.

Arnold Mensah Elavanyo is a multi-skilled showbiz personality who doubles as a presenter, producer, director, MC, entertainment critic, editor, celebrity blogger, etc.
