Kiss FM Program Controller explains the process that determines which songs are played on radio

Published

on


A lot has been going in the Kenyan music industry for days now and it all revolves around airplay on radio stations.

A number of artistes have complained that radio stations are not playing enough of Kenyan music and instead opt to play more of international, Bongo and Naija music.

All this was started by Khaligraph Jones after he said he’d like to take some media/radio personalities to Nigeria to see if they have fans there.

I am planning on Bringing at least 10 big Kenyan media personalities/Radio presenters to Nigeria for a 10 day trip which I myself shall cater for,I want to see if some of y’all will be recognized by your Nigerian fans or if you even have fans at all here, it would be very sad if you don’t though ?? ?????????????? #respecttheogs

This is something that didn’t go well with many people as some said Kenyan artistes should up their game when it comes to content creation. Other artistes stated that Kenyan radio stations are biased when it comes to playing music.

What many people don’t know, especially those who do not work for a radio station, is that there is a process on how music is curated.

Well, we sat down with Kiss FM’s Program Controller just to get to know the process in which songs that are air played are chosen.

1. What percentage of local music is played?

Kiss I think we are playing 30% Kenyan music and Khaligraph should not be one to complain because he was heavily played last year.

2. How do you choose which songs should be played on air?

They are considered based on merit. If a song is good it will be played. We have a music panel that sits every week and goes through all the submissions for that week, both international and local and then based on availability of space to add new songs, we pick the songs that are going to be added for that week. The music added also depends on how many songs we have also dropped because we play a fixed size of a database. We don’t just keep adding songs.

3. Who curates music?

Curation is done by the programme controller basically and music schedulers but also we have an automation software where we set some rules and then it does most of the work and then basically everything is as we want it to be.

DRCongo election official denies US corruption claim

Published

on


The United States on Friday imposed new sanctions on Corneille Nangaa and two other Congolese officials who monitored last year’s polls.

The Treasury Department froze Nangaa’s US assets. Washington accuses the trio of corruption and of obstructing democracy in December’s presidential election.

“I have never been involved in any kind of corruption,” Nangaa said on Twitter on Saturday.

“We acted according to the guidelines of the (electoral commission) board and under the control of the parliament.”

The US Treasury sanctions also target commission vice president Norbert Basengezi and Marcellin Mukolo Basengezi, a son of Basengezi who is an adviser to Nangaa.

The election saw Felix Tshisekedi controversially declared the winner, with the blessing of outgoing president Joseph Kabila.

It marked the country’s first peaceful handover of power since independence from Belgium in 1960.

Fellow opposition leader Martin Fayalu accused Nangaa of rigging the results.

Zarika was looking for the points whilst Phiri was looking for a knockout but Zarika kept coming out of the corner with swings that caught the Zambian off-guard.

Phiri worked hard but did not land most of her blows and only took the fifth round while the rest went mostly Zarika’s way.

Zarika reminded the excited crowd in attendance how she earned her name Iron first by landing heavy Punches down Phiris way, that gained her vital points to stand tall as the WBC Champion.

It was the Kenyan’s third title defence in Nairobi against the 32-year-old Zambian who was bidding to reclaim her WBC belt lost in Mexico and hoping to atone for her first loss to Zarika.

NATO confirms plans for US military storage in Poland

Published

on


The Wall Street Journal reported that the $260 million facility will be located in Powidz, some 200 km (120 miles) west of Warsaw, and will house armoured vehicles, ammunition and weapons for a brigade.

Building work will start later this year and is expected to take two years, alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg told the Journal. A NATO official confirmed the report was accurate.

NATO has increased defences along its eastern flank in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its role in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

Battlegroups have been deployed in the three Baltic states as well as Poland and NATO has launched an overhaul of its command structure and is taking steps to improve how quickly it can move troops and equipment around Europe in case of incursion.

The practice of “pre-positioning” equipment in strategic locations is also aimed at making it easier to deploy resources quickly in a crisis.

Stoltenberg told the Journal the new facility would “underpin the increased US presence in Poland”.

Poland’s government has been beefing up its military ties with the US, last month agreeing to buy American mobile rocket launchers worth $414 million and a year ago signing a $4.75 billion contract for a US-made Patriot anti-missile system.

Warsaw has also been pushing for the US to open a permanent military base. Nearly 5,000 American troops are already stationed on a rotational basis as part of NATO operations.
