As a fulani, I grew up loving to listen to radio and I still do. Be it airwaves from Bo, Bloemfontein, Toubab, radio will always be part of me. DESPITE am more onto podcasts now.
I can remember vividly when VibesFM was at its best , your experience and charming touch was lightening it by then too. I walked into the media industry immediately after my last Nairobi trip back in 2012 , My mentor Sara Camara Thespecialone received me with open arms .. Wherever there is Sara there is Dj Indiana.
Have followed and listened a lot of your shows throughout these years and as just many have confessed in you we found humbleness, cool and easy going young man.
Today we have not only laid your body and soul but you have carried along your determination, your courage and your personality. It’s something that the media bransch can’t replace .
I pray to our Lord to whom you have returned to, to lighten your place of rest , to include you to those whom he will show his mercy to and admit you to the best of his paradise.
I pray for your family to have that strength and patience to bear to the unfortunate crisis of your non existence. I still pray to God to answer all those who have pray for you since your last breath.
Rest in perfect peace till we meet again
Take heart Sara Camara Thespecialone

Our last conversation was October 23rd on Sunday morning when he text me informing me that he’s sick again,I should play for him,his Indian music which comes every Sunday from 10am to 12noon on Star Fm Radio 96.6,my last day to set my eyes on him was this past Saturday at the hospital in Banjul,he was all along telling me to sit down.
Tuesday evening after maghrib prayers I got the news that Serign Tunkara known as Dj Indiana passed away,he was very humble,down to earth,a pure Muslim,always smiling with people and friendly as well.
He was the production manager at Star FM untill his sudden demise,he plays Indian music every Sunday from 10am to 12noon.
I will never set my eyes on him again,especially on Sundays when I go to work,his office is the first place I go,we sit and chat before 10am.
I can’t control my tears,a co worker,a true brother is gone.
I pray that may Allah grant you the highest place in Jannatul Firdause…
My condolences to the Tunkara Family!!!
