Now on Teranga FM and Vibes FM, as well as online audio distribution platform SoundCloud, Wularo Kibaro – evening news review in local Mandinka language – has over the years attracted followers across the country.
The young journalist said: “I’m glad to have signed a sponsorship agreement deal with Supersonicz Financial Service to sponsor Gambia Wularo Kibaro.
“I wish to thank the management and staff, especially the CEO, for supporting and believing in the dream of a young Gambian trying to make a difference. The online news programme was borne out of the need and desire to have Gambians, especially the growing number of people going abroad, educated and informed of daily socio-economic and political issues happening in the country.
“The deal would help sustain and ease production of the news. Since inception, production and internet costs are all being foot solely by me. Let me put on record that I have no monetary benefits from this. I’m doing it because it is my passion; I love doing it.
He continued: “We need not to emphasise the importance of information in national development. It is often said that information is power. An informed citizenry is an asset for every nation because people can only then effectively participate in national development. And, this is what Gambia Wularo Kibaro is here to enhance.
“In this regard, I wish to encourage all listeners of the programme to choose Supersonicz for all your money transfer needs. They are safe, reliable and present all around the world. I want to assure the Supersonicz that they could not have done better because Gambia Wularo Kibaro is the biggest online news platform in the country. The podcast is Gambia’s biggest daily news programme online, recording over fourteen thousand plays in a week on SoundCloud. This is more than what any online news platform records. The podcast is in its eighth month, and already it has a total hits of close to one hundred and fifty thousand. The podcast is rebroadcast twice on Vibes FM on weekdays, 9am and 1am. More sponsors are invited.
“Also, I wish to thank all listeners for choosing us as your number one source of accurate and credible news about The Gambia.”
