THE AFRICA4U  BRAND



"AFRICA4U" is all about what is happening in many communities and countries from an African viewpoint, this also entails events taking place The UK, success stories, people making a difference and projects available aimed at encouraging social integration and community awareness.

If you an an African living in Europe or other parts of the world  and have a story, I would like to hear from you.

 I interview Role Models, Community Leaders, Professionals, Creative Artists, Producers, Music Critics and Social Entrepreneurs who are making a huge difference to the lives of others. I interview people unsung heroes with REAL LIFE stories that you do not often get to hear about on TV or The NEWS .It is my duty to celebrate and promote the positive causes of Postive Africans and Caribbeans in the Diaspora and around the world


In recent years, I have been The Radio Presenter and Producer for AFRICA4U RADIO SHOW- The Radio Show for Africans around the World and interviewed over 130 Guests in less than two years. The Show attracted listeners in 9 Countries- The UK, Spain, Germany, The States, Canada, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and Holland. The Show attracted various communities around the world from grass root level and it became mandatory for me to initiate and create more platforms for people who did not have a platform to express their voice, hence 75 percent of the music I aired on my show was from upcoming African artists- some of whom i now mentor and manage. 

Today, AFRICA4U has expanded into a brand that is responsible for conducting Video and Audio Interviews with Black Role Models around the world and celebrating The REAL LIFE stories of positive achievers making a difference around the world. 

I am available for Video/Audio Interviews in Europe and Africa and Event Bookings-   For more info- RING ME  on 07882809005
