Colourful Radio Bio
Voted “Best Radio Station” at Urban Music Awards (2015) and nominated UMA 2016 ‘Best Radio Station (2016)’, Colourful Radio is a unique independent family-friendly, public-spirited, 24/7 music and conversation multi-platform radio station paid for by adverts.

The name ‘colourful’ simply means ‘distinctive in character’. In his momentous ‘I have a Dream’ address on 28 August 1963, Rev. Martin Luther King Jnr. talked about judging a person by the ‘content of their character’. Call it creative licence, we have made it our mission to be consistently distinctive in the content of our programmes, our talent roster, and our listener-base. The name is also characteristic of our main broadcast footprint – London, which is by definition ‘colourful’ with over 300 languages spoken in it and more than 50 non-indigenous communities.

Colourful Radio has defined programme formats – original and inclusive programming including audio documentaries, drama, music charts, LIVE@ outside broadcasts, and multi-genre music shows all moderated by a vibrant talent line-up.

Some of Colourful Radio’s unique innovations include its own automatic listener catch-up service delivered within 15 minutes of the end of each show and accessible in just two clicks; a customised and unique mobile App allowing access to live stream, presenter contacts, plus 24/7 social media engagement.

As the ‘best radio station’ (by votes) for a colourful London, Colourful Radio is accessible across multiple platforms currently including digital radio, apps, mobile, and social media, with other platforms being sought.

Our History
The analogue era of broadcasting as a pirate radio station was never an attractive proposition to our founder, Kofi Kusitor. Kofi started Colourful Radio in 2002 as an ‘internet audio stream’ (now widely known as internet radio) under the hugely popular and award-winning Black Britain Online, Black Enterprise Awards and The Colourful Network brands. This was at a time when streaming technology was in its infancy. Internal research backed informally by others in the industry suggest that Colourful Radio was probably the first commercial internet radio station in the UK and possibly Europe.

At a time when 99% of commercial radio stations’ format was music-based and London had just one commercial talk radio station, our founder hoped to fulfil a single unmet need – to provide a conversation platform for under-represented communities, particularly African Caribbeans, completely excluded – or absent – from life-changing public debate and activity to become involved and better engaged. As such Colourful Radio’s format started off as mostly talk.

Having won digital broadcast licences from broadcast regulator Ofcom in August 2004, our founder decided to engage a team of accomplished journalists and presenters to anchor live shows. So, on 17th October 2005 the station went live with its first live pilot for a week of broadcast during Black History Month. This pilot proved hugely popular than anticipated, which led to our founder’s decision to exploit the opportunity on a more permanent basis. Then began the station’s trajectory to the ‘best radio station’ in London.

In 2006, our founder was nationally recognised with an MBE for ‘Services to Business’ by Her Majesty The Queen in the 2006 New Year’s Honours List having been at the forefront of marketing thousands of non-indigenous entrepreneurs and corporate executives through Black Britain Online, Black Enterprise Awards and Colourful Radio.

In 2007, Colourful Radio was selected by 4Radio (then owned by Channel 4 Television) to be a service provider alongside Virgin Radio and Disney on its national digital radio platform. A year later with 4Radio abandoning it’s plans, Colourful Radio won space on the London-wide DAB platform.

Launched on DAB on 2 March 2009, and 5 years later with broadcasting fees for DAB having risen year-on-year beyond the burgeoning independent station, Colourful Radio was forced to withdraw from the multiplex in January 2014. Colourful Radio was then restructured and has since been led by a fresh team.

After over 770,000 online votes the 13th annual Urban Music Awards (UMA), on 21 November 2015, announced Colourful Radio as voted ‘Best Radio Station’ in London – the first independent radio station to win the award.

Wigs or Wefts?

With this new evolution of wigs, invisible lace and more natural looking partings. We must ask ourselves are we now tired of gluing,sewing, and clipping in our hair wefts? Or are these wigs just a simple phase that will pass us like a storm in the night. Well one might argue that wigs are certainly not what they used to be. A Cher or Marilyn Monroe dress up wig? No way! Now   they look so good its almost trick-able to the naked eye.


Now it is so easy to colour wigs and wefts with a lot of retailers like Margaret Jordan Cosmetics having them coloured for you. From  neon colours to darker colours and ombre’s to suit every colour and race.


Surely the lack of stress by pulling on a wig, outweighs the inconvenience of having to fix in wefts. But then again its very hard for wefts to come loosen in a hair tug of war.


With Most good wigs starting from around £400 surely the wefts win on this battle? Well we cant say for sure, as some might argue quality over quantity.


Well we put it to you guys Wigs or Wefts?

Matte Liquid Lipstick Revolution

Since the mainstream version of Liquid lipsticks were launched by celebrities. We didn’t hear much of them apart from your silky smooth lip gloss. This new revolution of matte in a liquid, has not only proven exciting but daring.

UK Market

The UK market doesn’t give you much options of good quality lipsticks at an affordable price. you are either left buying from america with expensive shipping and handling fees or a local product which is not fully matte.


Even though there is competition in the US Market we believe that a quality products at a cheaper price is a far better alternative than a product that costs so much but delivers so little.


How often? if at all do you see most companies shipping products worldwide to most countries including African countries we are happy to reach the world in a matter of days.


Why Margaret Jordan Cosmetics?

Since the revolution of matte liquid lipsticks we have developed a fruity formula that is of excellent quality. plus our Matte liquid lipsticks last all day, so there’s no worries of it fading.Quality at a good price is paramount.
