CAPTAIN, I DONT THINK THE SHIP CAN TAKE IT…

A massive power surge shook the SOAS Radio studio today when Pete Adarkwah from BBE Records talked of his amazing new venture, BBE Africa. About to boldly go where no other record label had gone before, Pete’s new endeavour in Ghana combines music, education, preserving heritage and …growing vegetables. Considering his massive achievement over the past 15 years with BBE Records successfully presenting & cataloguing the best in dance music from Munich to Monterey, we know he is going to succeed with usual panache & savoir faire.
