Controversial Jamaican radio broadcaster/entertainer Dr. Kingsley ‘Ragashanti’ Stewart is now an official member of the fast rising Bridge 99FM.
Ragga, who recently relocated from Florida to New York City will broadcast virtually from The Bridge’s New York studios. He will join Richie B, Nikki Z, Prof Donna Hope, comedian Oliver Samuels, Kurt ‘Party Animal’ Riley, selector/producer Rory Stone Love and Rev Jr Tucker who were previously announced as members of the Bridge, 99FM team. Stewart will host the program ‘Ragashanti Live’.
The Bridge will allow Ragashanti, a former lecturer at the University of the West Indies (UWI) the opportunity to reconnect with thousands of fans and supporters at home and in the Jamaican/Caribbean Diaspora. His unapologetically talk-show explores the Jamaican concept of mix up and blenda: the entertaining presentation of humorous events from the lives of people. His mix up and blenda style – along with his signature beating the tambourine – engages callers on a range of ‘outa road’ topics that amusingly reveal a great deal of insight about the thoughts and behavior of Jamaicans. The veteran radio broadcaster holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology and is a popular event MC.
