In such a short period of time I have fallen in love with the listeners and with the team. However, I am SO excited by whats happening in the world right now. I am passionate about bridging the gap between Carribean music and African music, so that we can be more of a global force.

I love the growth of digital, and the idea that this little thing called your phone can be almost an entire media house. I am not going to announce whats coming next just yet, because I need to to SLEEP, and take a little break. But when I announce, you will hopefully understand why I had to make this difficult move, and why the future is SO bright. Thank you for blessing me with your ears!” said Chiki Kuruka.
