DJ Abrantee

Abrantee Boateng, also known professionally as DJ Abrantee, started his radio career in 2005 working the night shift at Choice FM and filling in for absentees whilst continuing his work as a DJ on the club circuit. The following year, Boateng was asked to present Saturday’s Choice, a show that aired once a month on a Saturday. In 2007, the success of Saturday’s Choice led to a permanent position at Choice FM to host the new Morning Riser show between 3:00 am and 6:00 am from Monday to Friday. He then moved to another time slot in March 2010 to present the station’s evening show from 8:00 pm to 12:00 am from Monday to Friday. The evening show consisted of tracks from Choice FM’s playlist but also included interviews with high-profile artists: DiddyUsherDrakeDizzee RascalKelly RowlandBig BoiLabrinthKelisTaio CruzFlo RidaTravie McCoyTinchy StryderJeremihLoick EssienJason Derulo amongst others. In April 2011, Choice FM announced that DJ Abrantee would become the new presenter of its drive time show between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm from Monday to Friday. It also announced that Abrantee would start hosting a new program entirely dedicated to Afrobeats from 12:00 am to 2:00 am every Saturday. The new show called Afrobeats with Abrantee was launched on 16 April 2011 and was one of the most tweeted about topic on Twitter that day which resulted in Choice FM trending for the first time[3] on the social networking service. Abrantee is currently on the air every Monday – Thursday from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm for what is now Capital Xtra’s drivetime show, while the Afrobeats with Abrantee show is now on between 10:00 pm and 12:00 am every Saturday.[4]
