I Worked At A Radio Station For 6 Years Without Getting Payment – Ghanaian Radio Presenter, Mr Tarr Recounts
Ghanaian radio presenter and disc jockey, Abdul Shatar Rashid, has recounted his journey in radio.
He reminisced about starting his radio journey from Parrot FM before moving to Space FM in Sunyani some years ago in a recent interview with Kofi Oppong Kyekyeku on Unlimited Chat With K.O.K aired on Top City TV.
Known by many people as Mr Tarr, the affable radio presenter recalled how he met his Godfather ‘Warren Gee’, following an introduction by veteran radio presenter and businessman, Micky Charles in 2005/2006.
It was a dream come through when he got the opportunity to work and learn from DJ ‘Warren Gee’.
Mr Tarr said he was able to prove what he could do one night when his Godfather had a call, and he took over to play some songs—and he did it so well.
He did his best after the opportunity presented itself for him to have ample time to serve his audience.
Shockingly, Mr Tarr disclosed that he worked at Space FM for about six (6) years without getting paid.
He indicated that he survived through the benevolence of his Godfather, ‘Woreen Gee’, who was giving some amount at the time.
Mr Tarr stated that he got his first payment of GHS 50 at Space FM in Sunyani in 2012.
