Are you a budding DJ? Have you got some DJ equipment at home? Can you spare 1 or 2 hours per week? Do you have an exciting idea for a show? Do you want to broadcast to a global audience?

Welcome to the wonderful world of African FM - your global African orientated online radio station. We've been in operation since 2001. In fact, we're one of the longest established Afri-centric global stations around!  Staffed completely by volunteer broadcasters - many with distinguished careers on radio stations all over the world, we bring the widest range of entertainment and news to the diaspora. We think we must be doing something right as we're the most popular African station on the world's number one radio player app - Tunein - with over 21,600 followers.  Add to that over 16,000 monthly listeners from over 150 countries - and now you begin to get the idea about our 'radio family'.  Why not join in the fun today !

Tyler, the Creator thinks he was treated like a "terrorist" by former UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

The 28-year-old rapper was banned from entering the country in 2015 by the then-Home Secretary after he was accused of encouraging violence and homophobia through his lyrics.

Reflecting on the incident, Tyler joked: "She's gone, so I'm back." According to Tyler, it took many lawyers and letters, as well as time and money, before he was allowed to return to the UK.

And the chart-topping star remains angry about the way he was treated.

He told the Guardian newspaper: "Then you get the official thumbs up. It was like: damn, finally, but it was so stupid to have to endure that. I got treated like a terrorist. Yeah. I got treated like I was a murderer."

In fact, at one stage, Tyler decided he simply didn't have the desire to return to the UK.

He shared: "It was kind of stupid, and after a while I was like: I don't even want to come back. But it was more the principle of: 'Y'all really did this, over this? In comparison to other s**t people do, that y'all let in?' So I'm happy that I got back. I feel like I won some invisible fight."

Asked whether the length of the ban - which was three to five years - came as a surprise, he added: "Yeah, it surprised me. But then I remembered - I'm dark-skinned, so, ahh, all right, I get it. I mean, I don't point my finger at that at first, but I looked at every outcome and I looked at every option. "And after doing that six times, then you say, OK, what's the difference between everyone else and me? And then you land on that."
