There is so much joy when one Liberian looks back from abroad to invest home. A Liberian based in the United States of America, who goes by the name Bookman Muapoe, has announced that he will be investing about 60K USD in his country Liberia, specifically Grand Bassa County, his County of origin. The purpose is to build a recording studio strictly for podcast, spoken word, skit, radio sweeper, commercial, and the likes, but not for music. This is awesome!!! This is actually going to be the first of its kind, especially to be situated outside of Monrovia.
Mr. Muapoe made the revelation on Saturday, December 5, 2020, via his official social media handle, Bookman Muapoe: "#TeamMUAPOE is thrilled to announce it will be investing a little over US sixty thousand dollars ($60,550.00) into building Liberia's first podcast/spoken word/drama/skit/radio sweeper/commercial, etc., but non-music recording studio stationed right in the heart of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County — away from Monrovia’s hustle and bustle."
"Provided more funding is secured, the studio would eventually expand into a licensed, multi-channel, nationwide frequency radio station, for which consultations have begun with local and state actors, rolling out in a 3-4 year period", he furthered. However, it is his hope that the podcast studio will be up and running by year two.
This is a great initiative and we wish you well, TeamMuapoe!!!
