The 77 Percent

Eddy Micah Jr.

Eddy Micah Jr. originally hails from Accra, Ghana and joined DW in 2017. He is one of the hosts of the AfricaLink radio program.

Me in 140 characters:

Ghanaian, fluent in English, Fante and Twi. With DW since 2017. Loves football, basketball, traveling and experiencing different cultures.

 Three things you should/didn’t know about me

I used to sing in a choir and yes I have a beautiful voice.

I am one of four kids but the second and only boy.

I believe nonsense is nonsense no matter who it comes from.

An African (dead or alive) I would love to interview

Kofi Annan but let me cheat and add Bob Marley.

In my home country, you should visit

Cape Coast Castle - Museum of the trans-Atlantic slave trade

Favorite African proverb

Do not watch someone’s dance to do your own dance. Do you!

Book recommendation

‘The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born’ by Ghanaian writer, Ayi Kwei Armah

Can’t get enough of music by

Osibisa and Kojo Antwi. Go listen to them and thank me later.

Favorite vacation spot in Africa:

Cape Coast Castle because I never want history to repeat iself!

The 77 Percent means the following to me:

It represents a new wave of young Africans who will do all they can to drive their continent to greater heights. I know because I am one of them! And yes, together we can!
