“I’ve been trying to get on radio for a while now, if you recall… I don’t know if you ever tuned into Y FM when Jay Foley was on for the Saturday Morning Show. I used to go on there with him, so that was the whole idea; the plan was to try and get me on radio. That was what Jay Foley had been working on for a while because he thought I was such a phenomenal TV presenter, I have a great voice and I could succeed on radio as well.
So when he confirmed his move to Live FM, he got in touch with me and told me about it and how he would want me to move to Live (FM) along with him because he believed that it’s a big platform and I will do well there so that’s how it started. But before that, we had been talking about getting on radio for a very long time,” she adds.
In a working environment that parades some of the top on-air personalities that the nation boasts of, Mundi believes that she can hold her own even though she is a newbie.
“Honestly, everyone there has a different personality and their brand is different, my brand is different as well. If I’m to join even some of the biggest names as well in any other any institution, I believe what I have should make me big as well and so I would not be in the shadows of the others, I will try my best to bring out something unique so the people will recognize me and my work.”
“Who wouldn’t I want to go to Live FM? It’s like the biggest place to work now in terms of joining another platform or being on another platform (as a TV Presenter), so Live (FM) was from the start, the place I wanted to be,” was her response to the question on why she chose to work with Live FM and not any other station.
“Also, I believe that for a station as new as Live FM and for someone who is practically new on radio like myself, the growing up … we will all grow together. There is a lot I could learn, they have the best team as well so you learn from the best.”
She didn’t disclose the program she will be hosting because “Nobody’s belt has been made public yet so I’d like to keep quiet about that until my bosses are ready to make it known. I’m not sure if I can start talking about it yet because from what I know it hasn’t been made public.”
On the challenge ahead she says: “Well, I got on GhOneTV… I didn’t start Rthymnz. Rthymz existed already but when I joined Rhythmz with BlaqBoy and when we introduced Rhythmz International with Jason and Regina, we were all able to put our minds together and come up with something good enough to make people want to watch.
“And right now, I don’t think you would want to challenge me that Rhythmz is one of the most watched shows in Ghana. We actually even won an award for that, so for someone who is working with a team that has won an award, getting on radio with some of the best people as well should give you enough reason to want to tune in and listen to Berla Mundi.”
