This show

Jeetaay is an informal phone-in, e-mail or text-in talk show where you contact the studio and chat with the presenter about anything and everything.  However, for the next few months (as from January 2019), we will be giving a new twist to this show. For the next few months, Seereer Radio's presenters will be bringing up topics on Seereer Radio Presenters' WhatsApp group chat to be discussed each week by all our presenters and special guests.

Our presenters rotate each week and take the role of main presenter. The main presenter will then bring up topics to be discussed by his/her co-presenters. Discussions closes by 15:00 GMT every Wednesday. These audio messages are then edited and broadcast on Seereer Radio every Thursday night at 21:00 GMT. The entire show is by WhatsApp - 100%. There will be little editing prior to broadcasting on Seereer Radio because we want to keep the raw and authentic feel of a typical WhatsApp group chat. We are currently experimenting with some of our shows using WhatsApp. We are one of the first Senegambian radio stations (online or frequency) to use this format -100%. WhatsApp is one of the major messaging services used by most Senegambians. We will be utilising this format once a week for the next couple of months mixed with our usual live broadcast format. 

This Jeetaay Show is Seereer Radio's second 100% WhatsApp and our longest show (over 6 hours). It was recorded from 2nd to 6th February 2019 and broadcast on Seereer Radio on Thursday, 7th February 2019 at 21:00 GMT. Our special guests this week are the renown Senegalese recording artist Simon Sene, Seereer high priest Saltigi Cheikh Ndiaye, Sulayman Ndong of Star FM (Gambia), Arfang Bobb of O'Fok Serer (Gambia) and Senegalese journalist and radio and TV broadcaster Macaire Nidaye (DJ Mac). We are pleased to announced that DJ Mac has now joined the Seereer Radio team.  You can listen to him on Seereer Radio every Saturday from 16:00 to 18:00 GMT on Kirinene Ngueel (16:00  - 17:00, in Seereer) and Setsima  (17:00 - 18:00, in Wolof). The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio teams would like to offer a warm welcome to DJ Mac and wish him great success with his shows.

During the second half of the show, you will hear Tamsier Joof relaying to the team that our old colleague Saltigi Biram Pouye passed away. The introduction by Tamsier was a later addition following the terrible news that Saltigi Pouye has passed over to the spirit world.  The intro was modified in order to reflect this news. The Seereer Radio team will be broadcasting a live tribute in honour of Saltigi Pouye on Saturday, 9th February 2019 at 20:00 GMT. 

The main presenter for this show is Demba Sene. On this show, Demba wanted to discuss the land ownership issues in Senegal and how this has impacted greatly on the Seereer community - many of whom have lost their land.

Open Mike : Presented by Doudou Diouf (Monday, 4th December 2017)

Open Mike is a no-holds-barred talk show where you, the listener sets the agenda. Call the show and talk about anything and everything. Callers are not screened. Want to talk about politics, economics, history, social issues affecting the Seereer people of Senegal, Gambia or Mauritania? Whatever it is, call in and make yourself heard. You can also call in to request a shoutout or dedicate a song to family and friends, or to yourself. Why not? You deserve it.

Open Mike broadcast live from Monday to Friday (see Seereer Radio's programme schedule for details). Seating in for Mamadou Fall who usually presents the show on Mondays, Doudou Diouf is joined by Tamsier Joof, Demba Sene and Mamadou Fall to discuss the recent arrest of Adama Mbaye and Ndeye Sonko - two Senegalese nationals arrested in Senegal for their involvement in human trafficking and the slave trade in Libya and other Arab countries. The panel asks: What is it about the African psyche that will allow this heresy to happen?

With ECOWAS Heads of State accepting Morocco's membership in principle to the West African Bloc, the panel also discussed the hypocrisy of ECOWAS in accepting a North African Arabized nation, yet rejecting Haiti's application whose people we share historical, cultural, racial and religious heritage with. The panel asks: Why has our West Africans leaders allowed this to happen? What is the motivation for allowing an Arab League country who we have no racial or cultural relation with yet rejecting Haity who we have close ties with? Is France behind this? What is Senegal's role in this? What role did the Senegalese Muslim Brotherhoods play in this? Are we (Africans) morally weak to allow this heresy to happen? Should the Bloc be dismantled altogether and start a fresh - which serves the interest of Black Africans and Blacks from the Diaspora?  If a fellow Black nation like Haiti cannot join, yet ECOWAS in its wisdom decided to accept a non-Black nation like Morocco, should the Bloc be dismantled altogether? Join this controversial discussion.

Our special tribute to Professor Issa Laye Thiaw : 1943 - 10th September 2017 (broadcast on 11th September 2017)

ProfessorIssaLayeThiawinhishouse-copyright-of-TheSeereerResourceCentre.jpg

It is with great regret that the Seereer Resource Centre (SRC) and Seereer Radio find themselves having to announce the passing of our colleague and old friend Professor Issa Laye Thiaw. Professor Issa Laye Thiaw, also known as Mbañik Caw (his Seereer name, Thiaw is spelled Caw in Seereer) was a brilliant historian and author, and a very proud Seereer and African. A true guardian of Seereer tradition, religion, culture and ethics. He was a gifted and wise man who was always generous with his knowledge and time. The Seereer Community, the Senegambian community, and Africa have lost a great man. 

Following the passing of our colleague and uncle - Professor Issa Laye Thiaw on Sunday, 10th September 2017 in Senegal, The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio teams as well as Radio Ndef Leng Diourbel 96.4 FM came together to pay a special tribute to Professor Issa Laye Thiaw.  This two hour tribute replaced the regular  Open Mike programme usually presented by Mamadou Fall. Following his passing, The Seereer Centre, Seereer Radio, Seereer Heritage Press and their teams issued a joint tribute published on Seereer Radio's website. You can read the full tribute by visiting this link if you are using a computer or visiting this website (www.seereerpodcast.org). Alternatively,  you can  check the  website links below or visit Seereer Radio's website (Schedule --> Presenters --> Obituary of Issa Laye Thiaw).

Professor Issa Laye Thiaw was not just a proud member of the SRC and Seereer Radio, but a family. We the Seereer and Senegambian community owe it to this great man to help support his works and family by buying his book La femme Seereer which is filled with great information as anyone who have read the book can attest to. We hope when the time comes for us to ask for the community's support in bringing to life the SRCTIW (The Seereer Resource Centre and The Temple of Initiated Women) project, the Seereer community, other Senegambians, Africans and those from the Diaspora will rally behind us and help us preserve the legacy of this man. For those who knew him, this project has been one of his best wishes that he wanted to give to the Seereer, Senegambian, African and those from the Diaspora who were separated from their motherland due to the horrible history of slavery. It is sad that he will not be here to witness the completion of this project, but we can unite and ensure that one of his greatest wishes comes to fruition. 

The Seereer Resource Centre, Seereer Radio, Seereer Heritage Press,  Tamsier JoofDemba SeneMamadou FallDimlé Sène and all team members of the SRC and Seereer Radio would like to offer their heartfelt and sincere condolences to his family and friends. This is a huge lost as expressed by colleagues.

Additional information : This audio was recorded for the SRC Collection, with permission to broadcast granted to Seereer Radio  | The Voice of the Seereer Community (our 24 hour stream radio station). This was a life broadcast and some our presenters where in Senegal where the internet connection kept cutting off. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

Additional information : With regret, the second portion of this show was not recorded. We thought it was being recorded but it was on pause. This was a mistake on our side to which we sincerely apologise for. Even worst, the second part was when we had a detailed interview with Sukai Dahaba (X) where she gave a detailed account regarding her traumer in the hands of Yayah Jammeh's enablers when she was captured as part of the 9th May 2016 demonstrators in The Gambia. In that portion she also mentioned some of Jammeh's enablers. We apologise for this error on our part and will endeavour our utmost to bring Sukai Dahaba on the show again for a more detailed interview. In the meantime, you can check out all our audio interviews with Sukai by scrolling through our categories and selecting Sukai's own category titled : "Sukai Dahaba (X) : Leader of the Kaalama Revolution". Also check out this interview she did with Fatu Camara of the Fatu Network published in JollofNews (see below) :
