Sema Sasa

controls Filter
DeeKay and Bwana Rob are SOAS students with a passion for radio, and Swahili too! They are proud to present the first Swahili language show to be broadcast on SOAS Radio. Sema Sasa is an up-beat show bringing you the best of Swahili Hip-Hop and topical chat. Bwana Rob is dedicated to hunting down the best Swahili Hip-Hop artists, both new and old, and bringing them to the UK airwaves for everyone to enjoy. DebeKay knows how to get people talking, and each week she will be bringing in special guests to generate lively debate about the latest issues in East Africa and the UK. Hopefully the show can reach out to Swahili speakers and Swahili students, providing a new medium for Swahili on the airwaves!
