Welcome to The Sound Kitchen. You can catch the programme on-the-air every Saturday, at our new times: 6:10, 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 answer: in early April Susan asked what happened after the election in Nigeria on 28 March, and why was it important? 

The answer is: It was the first time in an election in Nigeria that an incumbent president, Goodluck Jonathan, had been voted out of office. The handover of power was a peaceful one with Goodluck Jonathan conceding defeat to his rival Muhammadu Buhari.

The winners this week are:
Zenon Teles from India
Ralf Urbanczyk from Germany
Eric Shu from Cameroon
Ishmael Kawanza from Namibia
Korlawarle Oluleno from Nigeria
And Metali Listener’s Club in India

Congratulations, winners!
