Rebecca 'BECCA' MAURO

Luv FM 99.5 is redefining urban radio in the city of Kumasi by adorning the airwaves with the adorable Becca, host of the fast-growing infotainment show, Waves.

The versatile actor-cum-presenter assumed the hot seat early this year and has since provided the radio listening space with qualitative non-stop content.

Born to a Nigerian father and a Ghanaian mum, Rebecca Mauro, known as Becca, relocated from Nigeria to Ghana at age nine.

She had her first radio experience when she joined the Luv FM’s entertainment programme, ‘PM Show’, between 2014 and 2015.

“Radio was never the plan,” said Becca. However, “I had friends in the acting circle who did radio as well, that inspired me.”

Becca “finds radio a little intimidating because I have to talk alone with imaginary friends before me. But it has been fun and life changing.”

Explaining how life changing it has been since hosting Waves, she says “you get to learn every single day.”

At 2:15pm, the listener becomes the DJ as the show allows for song requests through phone-in and WhatsApp messaging.

The show is produced by Eugene Osei-Tutu.

Programme’s Manager for Luv FM, Franklin Wireko Brobbey (DJ Apuzo) believes Becca is the next big thing on radio.

“I believe in versatility and bringing Becca on board is the big step we have taken. She has the willpower to make it,” he said.
