Lokal FM: A Review…

“I downloaded the LokalFM app recently and decided to listen nonstop for a week, to see if all it’s hyped up to be is true. As a Nigerian in the diaspora, I sometimes lose track of the latest Nigerian music releases. In the week that I listened to LokalFM, I definitely got caught up! Even though my one-week experiment is long over (and yes, the hype is true), I will continue to listen to LokalFM. It is my one-stop radio station to satisfy all my Naija music cravings.
This is definitely one platform advertisers need to jump on. LokalFM has the potential to be a highly successful enterprise with listenership spanning Africans all over the world. I have no doubt that Tony Doe Onwuchekwa still has a lot of ideas on how to take his online radio platform to the next level up his sleeves. If he keeps up his current level of hard work and dedication to the craft, he will achieve his dreams and much more.”

WORLD RADIO DAY 2017: RADIO IS YOU!

The World Radio Day is in its 6th year this Monday February 13, 2017.

UNESCO invites all radio stations and supporting organisations to celebrate radio and how it helps shape our lives!

No doubt,

“Radio is still the most dynamic, reactive and engaging medium there is, adapting to 21st century changes and offering new ways to interact and participate. Where social media and audience fragmentation can put us in media bubbles of like-minded people, radio is uniquely positioned to bring communities together and foster positive dialogue for change. By listening to its audiences and responding to their needs, radio provides the diversity of views and voices needed to address the challenges we all face.

Radio informs us and transforms us, through entertainment, information and audience participation.  Having a radio means you are never alone – you always have a friend in radio. “

To this effect we at Lokal FM are dedicating Monday February 13th’s online streaming to good ol’ radio featuring the biggest Naija Radio Hits, fans speaking about Radio’s impact on their lives, excerpts from Radio’s archives and other features related to #WorldRadioDay.

Do join us online as we celebrate with Radio Stations all over the world with the theme: “Radio Is You!”

My good friend Ekemini Joseph will also have a Live interactive feed on Facebook with the theme from 9am on Monday, please don’t miss it!
