SLBC staff leave for AYV

African Young Voices (AYV), one of Sierra Leone`s newest media institutions which is fast edging towards a multimedia status, continues to attract big names in the country’s media landscape.  Popular Disc Jockey Mamaja Jalloh, aka DJ Base of ‘Night Line’ fame, and famous actor/broadcaster/producer T.J Cole are the latest signings of the group.  Owner and Chairman of the AYV Board, Mr. Abubakarr Anthony Navo Jr., confirmed that Base and T.J had already received their employment letters for them to start work.   (Photo: D J Base)

The Youth Ambassador told SaloneJamboree that T.J Cole would be heading the Corporate Affairs section and Films while Base would serve among the leading DJ’s for the radio which is presently on test transmission on 88.4 FM. 

Navo said the aim of AYV is to create avenues for young people, and that they wanted to give more voices to the youths. 

He said whiles others are building mansions and spending their monies elsewhere, they have decided to invest theirs in the lives of the youths. 

The AYV team now includes Theo Nicole, formerly of Premier Media, Ahmed Sahid Nasralla, Fatmata Kamara of SLBC, M.C Master B2s Tex and others. 

Speaking in an exclusive interview with SaloneJamboree, Base disclosed that his resignation from the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) was because of conditions of service which according to him were not favorable. 

The former UNAMSIL Radio staff said he was part of the new team that was successfully recruited to the ‘new’ SLBC but that the terms and conditions of services were not favorable and so he decided to quit.  Base went on to say further that SLBC did not know his worth. 

AYV presently operate a newspaper, AYV magazine, and a radio station which can be listened to on 88.4. The radio is however presently on test transmission. 

Reports say plans are on the way to set up a TV station as well. 

DJ Base is arguably one of Sierra Leone’s foremost Disc Jockeys. A native of Wilberforce, he came to the spotlight at the tail end of the civil war with his ‘Night Line’ program. Until now the program is popular among grass root Sierra Leoneans as it takes up issues with authorities including government ministers, presidents and VPs.
