Audio biography of the greatest musicians


My earliest memories of my love for radio and music come from my childhood. I enjoyed listening to an eclectic mix of sentimental lover’s rock, revival basslines, soulful rare groove and sexy soul played by my mum, aunts and uncles; which ultimately formed my passion of both music and radio. I couldn’t get enough and most of my spare time and money were spent between the two. At age 10 I made my first radio debut for the audience of my bedroom and my cousins mum who embarrassingly overheard and surprisingly complemented me; it was at this point that I realised I wanted to pursuit a career in radio. However, it wasn't until years later that I put the wheels in motion to make my dream a reality in actually getting my voice on the airwaves.

My first real taste of radio was at Life FM now known as Bang Radio, where in 2007 I started an Internship as a Broadcast Assistant and worked my way up to producer and co presenter on various different shows. After Life, I produced and presented my own shows on various community stations with my cousin and partner in crime Trinity. In 2012 I joined the student radio station at Goldsmiths University London (Wired Radio), where I produced and presented a weekly show ‘The Soul Of Goldsmiths’ until 2014, and was nominated for best specialist music show.

As an avid music fan, I love seeing my favourite artists perform live on stage and have had the pleasure of being blown away over the years by Jodeci, Mary J Blige, Janet Jackson, Usher, Glenn Lewis, Yolanda Brown, Eric Benet, Raheem Devaughn, Lalah Hathaway, Marsha Ambrosius and more.

Now behind the mic at Colourful Radio I'm enjoying an exciting and different side to radio with scriptwriting, producing and narrating audio documentaries about amazing, 'Powerful Women'; who are all inspiring me to keep going in achieving my dreams!
