I am very honored to have been invited to participate in the First Class of Radio event in Johannesburg, South Africa. The event, which is being hosted by premiere radio personality, Shane Ngwenya in association with other Kaya FM personnel. The radio workshop expands the line of dialogue between countries and the radio listening audience.

I grew up in Detroit where radio played a major part in providing information to the people. Radio has always been the main ingredient which kept the people around the community aware of what new talent was on the RISE, or featured the major artist that may have grown up in the city who made a difference with their music message, each one reflecting the changes of the time. Mean while providing insight into the community. This is what radio offered, this continues to make a different and is needed as a form of public communication.

Today, radio is challenged with the new media of streaming music, which is not a bad thing, but has changed how our radio taste-makers and media personalities have to compete as well as engage to communicate with the public.

I look forward to this platform being presented by Shane with the support of other Kaya FM personalities. I have had the pleasure of working with Shane over the last few months, as we continue to develop other opportunities to bridge the gap of global awareness to the artiste and performers that continue to make a different from behind the scenes. Performers that accompany major superstars who need to be acknowledged with proper recognition for their contributions and the body of work that they continue to create.

The First Class of Radio is a welcome platform that I am happy to be a part of with the other quest speakers involved, Bob Mabena, Neil Johnson, Kgomotso Meso, Amasi Mwela and of course Shane Ngwenya.  This is just the first step on our new journey of global community outreach.
