Submitted By: Ligali Media Network
The station often nicknamed the ‘debrainwashing’ station after Ngugi wa Thiong’o superb book ‘Decolonizing the Mind’ has steadily built a reputation for hard hitting analysis and debate from an uncompromisingly Africentric perspective. Now with an online audience via www.afiwestation.com The Bongo Tetteh Interactive Talk Show co-hosted by presenter Bro Omowale is one of the many flagship programmes redefining Sunday afternoon as primetime African Talk Radio.
Synonymous with community politics
The station renown for its conscious output has become synonymous with community politics. It hosts some of the most influential community shows for those wishing to speak direct to the African community especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings/afternoon when our community is traditionally underserved with Africentric, intelligent debate. With regular contributions from presenter Kwaku Bonsu the station also interviews guests with opposing political agendas from conscious community activists to the controversial Mayor of London’s Equality Advisor Lee Jasper.
The Bongo Tetteh Interactive Talk Show (with Bro Omowale) every Sunday 12pm to 3pm
Listen to community debate on Galaxy every Saturday morning - 10.00am to 12.00 pm

As community debate programmes hosted by narcissistic presenters on both licensed and some unlicensed community stations dumb down the talk and increase the entertainment level, a solid hardcore of dedicated presenters working for no pay avoid the tabloid topics to deal with the real issues that are effecting our community both here and at home.
