The Online Buzz Fi radio stations established four months ago is vastly gaining recognition with more listeners streaming in on a daily basis from all over the continent.
Speaking to The Villager, Radio Personality and host of the Wake and Bake show at Buzz-Fi Don Kamati says the response from the listeners have been positive so far and more exciting programs can be expected on the budding online radio.
According to Don, Buzz-Fi is targeting people between the ages of 15 to 65 and offers content galore, including entertainment and education programs, news, religious programs, sports shows and social and cultural interactions.
We operate from 06h00 to 21h00 on weekdays and Sundays, and from 06h00 to 11h30 on Fridays and Saturdays giving an opportunity to upcoming and well-established musicians a chance to promote their music without paying a cent.
“We know that many people in the entertainment industry have challenges getting the necessary platforms to promote their music because stations always ask for a specific fee for a simple interview. Why should musicians pay for their sweat,” Don stressed.
He further emphasised that Buzz-Fi plays a wide range of music, from Kwaito to Hip Hop and all the way dancehall etc.
“Anyone who knows that their music is worth playing can always just call us and go through the necessary procedures and there you are on the radio,” Don said.
Adding that anyone who has access to the internet on their smartphone, tablet computer or laptop can search for Buzz-Fi radio and click on the play button to listen to their music and shows without using headphones.
Buzz-Fi radio does not only focus on promoting music but also plays a significant role in sponsoring community programs.
“We do this through both our Buzz-fi project and also by promoting and sponsoring programs that are both informative and educational. These programs are under developments and will be airing soon. We aim at complementing schools by taking educational materials to learners even where they are just having fun,” he said.
