From the heart of Africa, a spellbinding true story of entrepreneurship, media, culture and tradition, all tastefully rolled into one! Absolute Radio is an authentic story of girls and boys who became women and men – and heroes – on the wings of a radio station. Running the course of 25 years, the story comes from the culturally stylish twin city of Sekondi-Takoradi in Ghana, with global footprints.
It is the most tantalising and ground-breaking body of work about Ghana’s private broadcasting industry. The author, former journalist Phillip Nyakpo, is himself an eye-witness and a participant in these true events.
From his base in Perth, Australia, Phillip interviewed women and men across four continents who made it happen over a quarter of a century.
The result is that he opened up to the world, a character and spirit of Africa that is all too often missing.
In telling the story, he writes a compelling narrative that is delicate, witty, eye-opening and wonderfully inspiring.
