Coast based leading Islamic radio station Radio Rahma becomes the recent victim of the Royal Media Service’s restructuring strategy after it lost one of its top talent to Royal media owned radio station Bahari FM.

Faiz Musa Abdallah has ditched the regional station and joined Bahari FM, a Royal Media Service brand that broadcast in the Coast region.

The experienced radio journalist worked for Radio Rahma for 13 years providing his well-articulated ideas and services to all the station’s departments including, in the management.

The multi-award winner started in the newsroom, making Radio Rahma a most listened Islamic radio station together with a team of reporters and editors who later left the station.

Mr. Abdallah would later become the Sub-editor and finally the Head of the News department, calling shots on the current affairs and always ensured the Prime news bulletin ‘Angazo la Rahma’ is rich and well coated with both local, national and international news.

The experienced, multi-talented, humble and hardworking journalist launched radio features segments and a special program aimed at highlighting news across Islamic countries globally known as ‘Jarida la Kiislamu’.

Indeed the station was rich in news and programme content.

Abdallah has nurtured young talents in the news room, a thing to date he is proud of and vows to carry on with it.

Journalism call

Until his jumping off the Radio Rahma wagon that is linked to Mvita Legislature Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir, Abdallah was the Station’s programme’s Controller, however, he at times played the roles of a programme presenter whenever there was a crisis in both the continuity and the news departments, no wonder Radio Rahma has lost its precious utility that has been well embraced by Bahari FM.

The renowned radio personality is a beneficiary of the Deutsche Welle (DW) Academy and has been filing environmental, cultural, economic and human rights radio features for the International media house.

Apart from his journalism assignments, Abdallah is a humanitarian icon who during the Holy month of Ramadan would join other Muslim journalists in contributing and buying foods and non-food items for the orphans, persons with disability and widows, perhaps this has contributed to his blessings and career growth.

“I am happy to join the Royal Media Service, this has been my dream to work for the giant media house, I am ready to take up my new responsibility and challenge in the new station,” he revealed.

New shoes

At Bahari FM, Abdallah will take up among others roles, news editing and anchoring mostly during prime time bulletins.
