South African-born TV presenter, actress, Mapitso Sebidi leaves Ghana after seven years

A year after she announced her resignation from the multimedia group limited, South-Africa-born presenter and actress, Mapitso Sebidi has said she is leaving Ghana.

The versatile host announced she is returning to her home country after seven years of working in the Ghanaian media and entertainment space.

Maps, as she is widely known, begun her TV journey in Ghana as a reporter with the multimedia group and evolved into an all-round personality.

She also built her craft in radio and TV production in her time with the kokomlemle-based media organization, and hosted news and other lifestyle programmes on JOYNEWS and JOY PRIME.

In a Facebook post announcing her departure from Ghana, Maps noted “it is time to write a new story and the next chapter is titled BEGINNING AGAIN.”

She added “I don’t know where it will take me, but I stand firm with the reminder that endings can be beautiful too.”

Maps has variously shared fond experiences of her time in Ghana, both on and off the TV screens and carries along with her, back to her roots in South Africa, lots of memories.

“To every one who has played a role in my Ghanaian adventure—friends turned family, former colleagues, virtual friends, and fans—I am eternally grateful for the memories, the lessons, and the bonds forged,” she wrote.

She also spared sometime to appreciate her mother who gave her blessing for her 2017 adventure into Ghana and all the other decisions she has made in her life and career since then.

Her post concludes “as I always say, the sun will shine and we will try again.”

“Cheers to new beginnings and endless possibilities. Goodbye Ghana, you have been far too good to me.”

During her time in Ghana, Maps featured in drama series like "Dede," "Eno," and "Madam" on Akwaaba Magic, and worked with some of the industry’s finest actors and directors.
