ABOUT US

Ghetto Radio Nairobi is your No. 1 Sheng radio station.

Ghetto Radio consists of the flagship 89.5FM Ghetto Radio station in Nairobi, and the websites Ghettoradio.co.ke and Thisisafrica.me.

Ghetto Radio was set up to reveal the fuller picture of urban African ghetto life and culture by being a channel through which ghetto inhabitants, artists as well as regular inhabitants of slums and ghettos, can tell their own stories (through music, graffiti, blogs, comments, news items, stories, poetry, etc.).

Ghetto Radio 89.5FM offers “street credible” news, views and entertainment by people from the urban ghetto, to an audience within and beyond the ghettos.

Online we offer (to an international audience):

  • Insider’s view of the craziness, chaos, ingenuity, absurdity, novelty, humour and vibrancy of urban street life, society and culture with insight & consciousness.
  • Features on Urban African street life that make a larger point, observation or comment on the society in which these lives are played out. We comment, provide insight and context, but not to judge.
  • Headline news from the perspective of, and effect on, those who depend on the informal economy for a living, i.e. those close to “the streets”.
  • A live audio stream of the 89.5FM broadcasts
  • A live video stream (visual radio) of the 89.5FM broadcasts

In other words, a more complete picture of urban slums/ghettos and its inhabitants than the relentless misery normally portrayed in mainstream media.
