Main presenters

Straight from the SRC Crew. Diplomatic but knows how to express his views. You will have to be a lawyer trying to win an argument against this man. .  


He is the founder of both the Seereer Resource Centre (SRC) and Seereer Radio. A proud Seereer who strongly believes in the preservation of Seereer culture, history and ultra orthodox Seereer religion (a ƭat Roog) and makes no apologies for it. Highly opinionated on all matters relating to the Seereer ethnic group and has no fear voicing it. 


A member of the SCR Crew who like Tamsier strongly believes in the preservation of the Traditional African religions and has no fear voicing it. A man with strong views and no one is safe from his tongue. Dimlé means "help" in Seereer but when used sarcastically it could means "for goodness sake, give me a break". They do not call him Dimlé for nothing. You've been warned.

Cool, calm and collected, with an extraordinary ability to move effortlessly from one topic to the next without breaking a sweat. 

 
Cool, calm and collected, with a passion for issues relating to the Senegambian woman. Look out for Moussou's upcoming shows and don't forget to join her every Saturday with the Cosaan Seereer team.

The Traditional African religions are his passion and he has a lot to say about them.


 

 

His style of journalism can be described as old meets new. A journalist by profession, DJ Mac as he is commonly known possess the ability to move effortlessly between topics no matter what the topic. A well read pro, and fully abreast with developments in current and Senegambian cultural affairs, DJ Mac fuses the formal and informal presenter format in his shows that only "The Mac" can do in his "Mackish" kind of way. Delivering excellence to the listener is his motto, and no one is going to stop him.

 

Regular panel guests 

One of the Seereer intelligentsia living in Senegal today. Son of a saltigi (Seereer high priest). Fluent in Seereer-Siin, Saafi-Saafi, French and Wolof. Professor Thiaw is an Egyptologist and an expert on Seereer religion, history and culture.

Our late colleague Professor Thiaw sadly passed away in September 2017. Read our special tribute to this great man here

Saltigi Biram Puuy

One of the last remnants of the old traditional Seereer saltigi (Seereer high priests) class. Unlike some who profess to be "saltigis" but neither do they follow Seereer religion nor have they been initiated, Saltigi Puuy on the other hand is the real deal. A rather humorous and generous man who likes to give and expects nothing in return and indeed wants nothing in return.   


Saltigi Puuy comes from a long line of saltigis. He rarely give interviews and is now more focused on Seereer history and culture than the usual role associated with the Seereer priestly class (saltigi). It is a privilege to have him on Seereer Radio. 


Our late colleague Saltigi Biram Puuy sadly passed away in February 2019. Read our special tribute to this wise man  here.

Professor Mara Joon

A member of the Seereer intellectual class living in Senegal today. Highly passionate and knowledgeable about Seereer history, culture and languages particularly Saafi-Saafi. A historian and linguist by day, a writer by night with several peer-reviewed papers under his belt since the administration of President Sedar Senghore. He is a former protégé of the Seereer Resource Centre's very own Professor Souleymane Faye.

Laity Sene is a business man and a Seereer wrestling (njom) promoter. He can be heard on Seereer Radio's Cosaan Seereer programme and other special Open Mike programmes. He also works behind the scenes supporting Seereer Radio by bringing notable Seereer artists on the Cosaan Seereer show. You can listen to all previous shows of Laity Sene by visiting our podcast

Diokel Ngom

Calm and always positive with a great passion for everything Seereer. Highly connected and always enthusiastic. 

The Seereer Resource Centre (SRC)  and Seereer Radio are proud sponsors of Radio Ndef Leng Diourbel 96.4 FM. Seereer Radio also collaborates with Radio Ndef Leng, and two of Radio Ndef Leng's team (Diokel Ngom and Aly Sene) can be heard frequently on Seereer Radio's programmes.

Khady Basse

A business woman by profession, Khady (or Kambul - as she is fondly called by us) can be described as a fun and playful character. Expect lots of laughter when this lady is around. Her ability to inject humour in heated panel discussions is unrivaled.  You can listen to all previous shows of Khady Bass by visiting our podcast

Laye Khan Jallow

Laye Khan Jallow (or LKJ as he is commonly known) is the laid back member of the team. A proud Halpulaar currently living in the U.S.  Like Khady Basse, LKJ was one of the original callers to Mamadou Fall's Open Mike show. He liked Seereer Radio so much he decided to stick around. Several months later, he became a permanent fixture in the team. No one is removing this Peul from Seereer Radio. He dares you!  In 2017, LKJ was due to launch a Fulɓe programme on Seereer Radio but due to other commitments had to defer that project. If you would like to see that project comes to fruition, contact Seereer Radio marked for the attention of LKJ and pester him to do the show. You never know! He might listen to you. He never listen to us anyway.  You can listen to all previous shows of LKJ by visiting our podcast.
