In a contemporary context when societies have advanced economically, socially and even politically, Africa still seems to be stagnating. It doesn’t require statistics to confirm this assertion. Ordinary observation and popular opinion is enough to affirm. The coming of new information and communication technologies that have plunged the world into an irresistible social communication network has only timidly contributed to the growth of Africa. Rather mentalities have not changed vis-à-vis social and economic development and the question whether social media has caused more harm than good still hovers. However, communication remains a non-negotiable tool in development. In this context, a more developmental approach in social communication is undoubtedly the most essential thing African requires. Online radio broadcasting is fast becoming the answer to this salient question unlike other forms of social media that have remained in the hands of the ordinary citizen who plays with it as though they were bouncing a ball. An online radio outfit would operate normally like the traditional form with an editorial policy that guides its operation for quality and self-censored works. It would therefore cover the gap which other forms of social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter has created and which has not really helped to promote African values. It is within this backdrop that APEX RADIO is being created.
