Q&A: Jojo Sonubi (No Signal, UK) - Pushing the Culture forward

Jojo Sonubi

Moderator: Bright Nshuti


London nightlife architect Jojo Sonubi and his brother David are the driving force between the massively popular London club event RECESS - commonly dubbed ‘the party of the people’ - and equally groundbreaking online radio station No Signal. They started No Signal early 2020 to bring their community together in the face of pandemic isolation, and it became a source of inspiration, information, debate, and entertainment for our culture. With their amazingly curated NS10v10 artist catalogue clashes they riled up the scene, inventing new powerful ways to continue building and exciting communities across the globe. No Signal is a home for powerful sounds, innovations and conversations, coming from across the Black diaspora worldwide. With a strong foothold in the British Black creative community, Sonubi is developing a platform with a much more global reach, and with a firm dedication to building a strong network within the Black diaspora in Europe and sharing knowledge and creating bridges to likeminded initiatives all over the world. Sonubi’s other initiatives include BLKINTHEDAY, a platform and archive documenting Black history and culture in the UK, and NS Academy, a training for young Black people to develop technical skills for careers in broadcasting, audio production and engineering. In this Q&A Sonubi will discuss his current and future steps towards emboldening our scene, culture and community across the borders, strengthening both the powerful Black creative community in the UK and creating fruitful networks within Black diaspora in Europe and also beyond, as well as the inspirational long-term resilience, creativity and community spirit that has been a foundational part of UK’s Black creative history as a whole, from the immense influence of pirate radio, to No Signal’s successful launch.
