"My farewell party just went down. Today was my last day at TV47...I cried, I 'crewed', it has been an emotional day leaving a company that received me warmly when I was going through a rough patch in my life.

"TV47 became more than just a company I worked for. It literally became family as it provided a soft landing for me. I will forever be indebted to this brand that I hold so dear," Barang'a wrote.

Before joining TV47, Barang'a worked at Nation Media Group for eight years before leaving in 2020.
