Mabelle Prior says as a social-cultural critique (a.k.a. agent provocateur), she had to put her strong opinions in a handbook that documents some of her thoughts about the idiosyncrasies of Africans. The lives and lies we live. The vagaries of their unique poverty that stretches into billions of dollars. Their worn habits dying for an updated version. She mirrors their fears. She dissects their hypocrisies. She pokes at their beliefs that care for them so much they rid them of every possibility to be exceptional.
We asked Mabelle Prior a few questions, like How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey? I applied for the job when there was a vacancy, and I was selected. So I started working at the Volta Regional branch of Ghana Broadcasting Corporation – GBC Volta Star Radio in the early 90ies. I later left for Switzerland, where I worked at Radio Canal3, I later left them to create my own organization – Switzerland Most Beautiful.
Mabelle Prior (born March 17, 1976) is a Swiss Ghanaian/Togolese origin. Former broadcast journalist and producer of Women and children’s programme back in the 1990s on Ghana Broadcasting Corporation. She is popularly known as ‘Ghana’s Radio Queen’ in those days.
What’s your most memorable experience? One of my memorable experience is when I was booked to host a music festival in Ho sports stadium in Ghana in the year 2000 in the presence of 10000 people, the main musician didn’t turn up, and I was nearly killed by the angry public, it was a complete mob throwing things at me on the stage. I was frightened, I thought It was the end of my life. Luckily enough, the Mayor of the city, the District Chief Executive Captain George Nfodjo, who happens to be my uncle, sent soldiers and security men to come and protect me and take me away from the crowd. It was an experience I will never forget.
