Exclusive - Dede Dalmeida Opens Up About Being A Radio Personality

4 January 2017/ Berenice Mulubah 

Dede Dalmeida
Dede is one of few Liberian females who are into radio, within the Liberian entertainment industry.  C Liberia Clearly had a one-on-one with her, few days ago.  She gave us an inside into her world of radio.  Check out our interview with Dede, below.  
 
What led you to a career in radio? Was there a defining moment, which made you realize "this is it"? 
 
I was asked to co-host a show, giving a woman's perspective on the conversation about the Liberian music industry and Liberian artists. I'm assuming because I do care a lot about the Liberian music industry and Liberian Artists. Fortunately for me, the host ended up having prior engagements and I became the main host. I like to talk, so being on the radio and expressing myself and talking to others came easily.  It's a good fit.

  How long have you been a radio personality? 
 
I have been doing this for six months. I am still a novice.

What's the process you go through to prepare for your show? 
 
I don't have any process. I just don't go out the night before.  I try to relax at home so that I can get up early enough to be on time, which rarely works out, lol. If I do go out, I try to stay in the city so that I can get enough time left for the show in the morning.

  What is your take on the Liberian music industry?
 
I feel that the industry has come along way. I see great improvements. I  think that some of the understanding and the mentality that we have needs to improve. But we are moving in the right direction.

Do you have any advice for the artists?
 
 Be single minded about your craft. Perfect your sound, perfect your stage presence, perfect your music production before you present it.

  What's next in your career?
 
 I do a lot of things. I am a mom, I am a radio personality, I am a promoter, and I'm on the board of several organizations. My next step is just to maintain and grow the things that I am currently already working on.
