Gilbert Shang Ndi: The Radio

“As you dusted the radio, almost half-heartedly, wondering if you needed it at all, you said to yourself: ‘Truly, the radio keeps tracking me, like the woman I shared with my father.’ You had bought that radio as one of your latest strategies for learning German. The language seemed to you like a hydra and one needed to keep overhauling old methods and devising new tactics in order to apprehend it. In addition to that, you enjoyed sleeping to the tunes of Radio Bayern that most often played pleasant RnB music all through the night. Then, for some time, you had gotten so busy with your thesis that your laptop took precedence over any other appliances in your room. Whatever radio programs you still followed, like your long-time companions BBC Afrique, Focus on Africa, and BBC News Hour, you did so on your laptop. “
