Jeetaay : Presented by Tamsier Joof (Thursday, 21 February 2019)

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 4th 100% WhatsApp show. It was recorded from 17th to 19th February 2019 and broadcast on Seereer Radio on Thursday, 21st February 2019 at 21:00 GMT. 

The main presenter was Tamsier Joof. On this show, Tamsier wanted to discuss the self-hatred of some African Muslims particularly in Senegal - who fake their genealogy by proclaiming to be descended from Arabs in order to get closer to the Islamic prophet Muhammad (what some scholars describe as Islamic legitimacy), and/or give false accounts about the origin of their surnames by claiming that their surnames are Arabic in origin despite it being African.

We would like to apologise for the background noise. All the presenters who participated in this tribute were calling from different countries such as the UK, USA, Italy and Senegal. The conference call was done via Skype, and as with such technology especially when calling from different parts of the world, there is bound to be some technical problems. We would also like to apologise for the background noise emanating from one of the co-presenters who was in transit during the recording of this show. 

During the recording of our previous Jeetaay Show, the news reached us that our colleague Saltigi Biram Pouye passed away. The news was delivered to the team by Tamsier Joof.
