Hailing from North London, United Kingdom, Karen Nyame better known as her moniker ‘KG’ is an accomplished creative specialising in the fields of broadcast media and music.
Her ambition has brought her high levels of achievement, completing voiceover work for The Beat London 103.6 FM (formerly known as Bang Radio), production work with Smooth Radio, Gem 106, presenting on Westside Radio 89.6 FM and BBC Radio 1Xtra. Acknowledging Karen’s broadcasting skills, the BBC selected her voice for “Xtra Talent”, a brand new programme format. She was then chosen to pioneer an R&B music segment for the new radio series in 2012. In 2016 she became a frequent guest panellist on BBC Radio London, discussing gender and race diversity issues in the broadcast media industry. This year so far has seen Karen take her DJing skills to the next level, with guest mix shows on Rinse FM, Reprezent Radio, NTS and Radar Radio.
Her music production portfolio has given her the chance to collaborate with Ghanaian Afrobeat artist Sarkodie and now in 2018, she has revived a few of her old UK Funky/House releases (KG EP) teaming up with global music label, Goon Club Allstars. She will be releasing more music whilst holding down major local & international residencies, DJing at special events throughout the course of the year and onwards. Her high-energy DJ sets match her frenetic production style, merging Africa polyrhythmic beats, euphoric melodies and hard hitting basslines.
In Journalism she has been equally successful, working with online/print outlets like SoulCulture, Nupé and The Ealing Gazette.
Karen’s power lies in networking, production, creative consultancy, building connections and striving to seek new levels of success. She is the Managing Director & Founder of ‘Stirbox’ – a combo distribution and youth lifestyle/media production hub.
