Listening to radio has been one of my hobbies beginning from when I was a teenager; I found it was a source of information by way of news, announcements, e.t.c and also a source where I first got to hear good music. Being a lover of music and entertainment, I stuck mostly to radio stations with the entertainment style format of programming as well as familiarizing myself with the names of my favorite on-air presenters. I have always wondered how everything was set up in the radio station and how the quality sound delivery finally got to the listener like myself and each time I listened, I wished to be an on-air presenter, not forgetting there were skills and training involved……. My first attempt to enroll at a radio school in 2014 wasn’t successful as I didn’t have enough finances to carry me through after making the enquiries, so I moved on with life but still had that zeal to pursue a radio career, three years later in 2017, now well prepared I enrolled in the same school I wasn’t having the capability to attend back in 2014, which is (Rabodef Radio Academy, located here in Accra, Ghana) which I consider the best for every aspiring radio personality, I did a three months extensive course and finally graduated with the level of skills I needed to begin my radio journey, although an internship with radio stations was required of all students so they gain experience, mine was different because of certain personal reasons so I could not have my internship done but I still listened a great deal to a few favorite radio stations, it was during this time I also began my blog and made friends with different on-air radio presenters one of them being Benjamin Akakpo of Classfm 91.3, Brother Ben as I call him, is the host of the award winning program “Author’s Haven” where literary works of great men and women are reviewed, I am a great fan of his and also a member of most of his interactive social media platforms. One day I received a call from Benjamin asking if I would love to be a guest on his show to review one of the books for that week, although I had to check my schedule to confirm if I would make it there that day or not, I couldn’t contain my joy and I quickly cancelled any appointment that may have come up on the program day and called Benjamin back that I would make it, the book to be read was “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum and I had less than a week to finish it LOL.
The D-day came and I was well prepared, I had informed my friends and family members to tune in and listen, also I had not forgotten the training received from radio school regarding speaking and composure during an on-air program….. I was nervous and I knew it was normal to be, because it was a first time for me but I also gathered courage at the same time, I was supposed to be joined by another guest but he couldn’t make it so I was the only one present as a guest. The show started and the first few minutes of my responses to Benjamin’s questions was tense LOL, but as the show went on it all disappeared and thankfully the show went on smoothly, I couldn’t believe it, (ME) speaking on air to a great number of people through the radio. I felt fulfilled…… This blog of mine now is a part of my plan in preparing myself for something great for listeners when I get a chance to host my own show. The Author’s Haven show comes up every Sunday at 7:00 pm on Class 91.3 FM and online http://www.classfmonline.com
My sincere gratitude goes to Benjamin Akakpo to have given me this first radio platform and experience. Thank You Bro……

Trap music is gradually taking a stand in the Ghanaian music industry with new diverse artists cropping out daily with different creative approach to the Genre.
One such Artiste putting African Trap music on the Map is Street4tune. Street4tune who is currently signed to blackstreet 4orce has released a new single titled “ego bee” to inspire and prepare the youth ahead of 2018.
Street4tune said his own life inspired the creation of the song, chasing your dreams , sometimes you get to a point where you feel it’s never going to work out , it was at that point in his life where he lacked motivation and he visited a studio with one of his friends and when the producer played the instrumentals, the story of his life came through this music, that he should never give up and still believe in his dreams .
Street4tune actually started music in 2016, that year was his rebirth, when he became aware of himself and decided actually on what to do with his life, he was in the institute of chartered accountants but decided to push the School ways aside and follow his passion for music.
He had a daughter who was one year old in 2016 and neither his mom nor any member of his family knew about her, he knew his life could go wayward any moment if he didn’t make the right choices so deciding on what to do on the street, he chose music.
His passion for music was within him from birth but he could never speak it out because he knew his mum wont support his career so he decided to take his life into his own hands and work towards his purpose in life
So Just like him, this is a motivation to everyone on the street, chasing a dream , to keep your head up because it may take time but one thing is certain that #ego_bee one day.
