Ghetto Radio Tanzania will go on air so make sure your dial is on 94.5 FM come November 1. A live stream will also be available via www.ghettoradio.co.tz , where you will hear content that is true to the “ghetto youth” regardless of your location.

The language used, topics covered and song selections will be locally relevant. You can expect to hear Tanzanian music and popular reggae jams playing, but that’s not the only reason to get excited about the radio station.

The presenters, producers and supporting staff are from the same background as the target audience. They will be tasked with inspiring, entertaining and informing under-privileged youth.

In a market where Tanzanian broadcasters mainly target the middle and upper class, Ghetto Radio Tanzania and its partner Sibuka Media Limited are stepping up to fill the gap. This Is Africa Limited and Ghetto Radio Kenya Limited are financing the new radio station.

Ghetto Radio originally began in Nairobi, Kenya (2008) as a donor funded program which has grown into a sustainable business and one of Nairobi’s top stations.

It’s about time an authentic, youthful station gave the Tanzanian youth a platform to express themselves. Ghetto Radio Tanzania is the station you’ve been waiting for, so tune into 94.5 FM this November.
