What is the biggest inspiration for your show?

The motherland and the dismal lack of African music you hear being played here in the U.S., while in many parts of Africa the billboards are topped with U.S. artists.

If you could have anyone alive or dead listen to your show, who would it be?

We’re 4.5% sure that Lupita Nyong’o already listens, but if she like called in every Monday and was like “Hey guys you’re the best let’s all party with Jared Leto” it would be super awesome.

What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?

Mayowa (DJ Pumbaa)- I think I’ll always hold a special spot in my heart for Phoenix, because that was the first concert I went to

Eni (DJ Timon) – BET 106&Park tour It was the best as in it was the cheapest, I got to see Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Young Joc, and some other obscure artists for 10 bucks my freshman year of high school.
