Groove Rydaz Continues – A Tribute to Asher

The sudden passing of our beloved presenter Ras Asher, who has given many years of service to the station has left us devastated and in deep shock. Ras Asher was a true humble lion with a versatile music portfolio, from roots reggae to jazz and rare grooves.
Our thoughts are with his children, family, and all those who share our sense of loss.
In honour of his memory we will dedicate his show to the music that he loved and dedicated his life to.
May he be received well on his journey to the next Realm. Asé. 🙏

Asher was a multi-talented creative, Asher was a professional DJ, MC, host and photographer. He was brought up in South London on a mix of gospel, folk, soul, RnB and rare groove. He also loved reggae from an early age.

Asher was with Ujima since the very beginning and had produced and presented shows covering genres from bluebeat, ska, world music, afro beats and many more.
