As music evolves like any other expression of culture, there is the need for systems and structures for growth and that is simply what ‘Nitro, The Live Session’ seeks to push. The platform created by Echo House gives artistes the platform to tell their story while showing fans and audience the reason behind their artistry or songs.
With a live set and fans to complement the experience, it takes you through different renditions of hit tunes by the original recording artistes and brings home the creativity, innovation and ingenuity that guided the production of a particular tune.
The show is now on DSTV Africa Magic Channel 150 on Saturdays at 2.30pm and offers nothing short of brilliantly crafted performances from Okyeame Kwame, Joey B, MzVee, Tinny, Pappy Kojo, Gyedu Blay Ambolley, Efya, EL, Akwaboah, Jupitar among others. Each artiste reaches for something beyond their art and dazzles as the tune moves the studio audience to jam.
This is Echo House’s maiden TV production and the first of its kind in Ghana. Nitro, The Live Session is a different kind of TV show and puts music in a 360 arm chair. It offers an authentic alternative to what music has grown into and proves it can be better in a truer, artistic representation.
Echo House is a creative marketing agency that is constantly guided by creativity to be different, innovation to prove a point and original to make a case study for the Ghanaian and African youth. As its maiden TV production, Echo House promises to release a series of culturally relevant content that will transform TV as we know it and tell the Ghanaian story.

Al Jazeera English is proud to announce its end of year slate of new international documentaries
Al Jazeera English (AJE) is home to some of the best, most diverse and unique documentaries from around the globe. The Internationally aclaimed broadcaster showcases a wide range of stories, storytellers, perspectives and genres, in films which offer insight, understanding, information and empathy, to complement its global news. AJE airs over 300 documentaries a year, in regular strands and stand-alone slots.
AJE’s latest slate premieres several themed series as well as powerful single documentaries. In ‘Bollywood Dreams’ audiences follow some of the thousands of ‘strugglers’ across India, who pin their futures and hopes on Bollywood. In the USA, Colombia, Finland and Australia’s Torres Strait Islands we observe First Nation communities reclaim their heritage, combat environmental disaster and fight to sustain their lives and livelihoods. The award-winning ‘Africa Direct’ returns for a second series, with African filmmakers telling African stories in immersive, first-person short docs. AJE’s flagship strand Witness premieres several new films including from Ukraine, India, Iraq, Armenia, South Sudan, Algeria, Spain and Lebanon.
Beyond the premieres, AJE will show some outstanding environmental and football films again in November and December. Witness Australia’s bushfires up close, and experience the permafrost during COP. And while the world is glued to football fields, AJE goes off the pitch to understand six football clubs in the popular series ‘The Fans Who Make Football’.
AJE’s Documentaries unit accounts for around a quarter of the Channel’s total output. From immersive, character-led stories to issue-led exposures, the films prioritise the human lived experiences behind news stories. They aim to challenge prevailing narratives about people, places and power by elevating seldom-heard voices and featuring people telling their own stories.Its documentaries present a range of experiences, lives and views to help viewers think, understand, feel and connect with the world around them.
Our award-winning documentaries provide great range, depth and nuance to our daily news coverage,” said Giles Trendle, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English, “and we are lucky to have a talented and diverse team which works with a wide array of filmmakers from around the world.”
Ingrid Falk, Manager of Programmes said “Stories are hugely important in shaping our understanding of the world, so we in the Documentaries unit focus as much on how we tell stories, and who tells them, as the subject matter itself. We try to shift the power of the storytelling itself towards those who have experience the events – we have the space to move away from presenters and reporters as authoritative voices towards first person narratives. Our philosophy is that when we see and hear from people directly, confidently, centred in their own stories, only then can we reimagine notions of authority and power. And in this very unequal world, that is an important thing to do.”
