Hello everyone!

Welcome to The Sound Kitchen. You can catch the programme on-the-air every Saturday, at our new times: 6:15, 6:45, 14:45 and 16:45 universal time. You’ll hear the winner’s names announced and the week’s quiz question, along with all the other ingredients you have grown accustomed to: your letters and essays, “On This Day”, quirky facts and news, interviews, and great music … so be sure and tune in every Saturday.

This week’s quiz: On 14 February, I asked you about Nigeria’s presidential elections, which were originally scheduled for that day. The polls were postponed - concerns over security were cited as the reason – and today, 28 March, is the day Nigerians are voting. I asked you to send in the names of the top two most-likely-to-win presidential contenders in Nigeria, and the names of their political parties.

The answer is: Nigeria’s standing president, Goodluck Jonathan, of the Peoples' Democratic Party, and Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress.

The winners this week are:  Baimba Tejan from Monrovia, Liberia; Mrs Sworna Khaton of the Lolona Listeners Club in Naogaon, Bangladesh; Fansu Bolong Janneh, from Banjul, The Gambia; Wirsiy Divine Peeters Bobongha from Bamenda, Cameroon, and RFI Listeners Club member Jayanta Chakrabarty from New Delhi, India.

Congratulations, winners!
