Personified Radio

Ambassador

Personified is two-hour radio show hosted on one of Africa’s fastest growing online radio station ImpulsRadio Africa. Personified leads conversation on the different perspectives and the lived experiences of marginalized groups, disabled, overlooked, and othered within our African communities. Listeners are updated on the latest, news developments and empowerment opportunities relating to people with disabilities in different regions of Africa. We “PERSONIFY” these individuals by sharing their stories of overcoming life challenges and ultimately defying the odds.

Through the show we aim on showcasing how people have managed to overcome life’s difficulties and sharing their stories of triumph and success. Minority group related content and our thought-out features allows for an enlightened narrative on disability, inability, societal challenges, social barriers and learning more of how we can create a more inclusive society for minority groups throughout different regions of Africa. All this is underpinned by vibrant cross African music to draw listeners from different corners or the continent.
