He told ghanaweekend.com that when he started radio, Radio Valco was the best station in Cape Coast, even though it was a student-led effort.

“I had completed secondary school and was fast developing my DJing and MC skills with social groups in Cape Coast at the time. I got in touch initially with Eddie Ray (now at Kasapa FM) who put me in touch with other senior presenters at the station to see if I would be considered,” he said.

According to Jimmy, because of his relatively young age (he was still in his teens), nobody was ready to give him a chance.

“Eventually, Mr Daniel Dadson, the station manager at the time, gave me the opportunity to prove myself with a 2 am to 3 am hip-hop show on Tuesdays. The rest, they say, is history,” he added.

1. Jimmy worked with Radio Valco from 2002 to 2006. He was a DJ, Presenter for Brunch, Drive, Weekend Jam, and other shows and became the head of events before leaving.
