Home Producers Henok Mekonnen
Henok Mekonnen

Henok MekonnenHere you go with a young man who likes watching movies, football games; listening to music, reading and hanging out with fellas. Henok is the host beyond involving in the production of all the youth media program episodes. He says “I have strong hopes that the youth media will make a huge difference in youth daily life and life styles, just as it has in mine”. “I enjoy the triple role that the Youth Media program has provided me. As a producer I deal with variety types of formats which will help me assess youth perceptions.  As a host I present in the language of the youth which contents me with belongingness and intimacy.  And finally as an ordinary listener it will give me a chance to assess my own life in terms of what I just listened to”.

Art and drama are most important personality components to Henok.  “As a host I need to have these qualities which will help me contribute to educating young people while entertaining them without mentioning the does, don’t does and the topic HIV itself.”

 

 

Most memorable time:

“It was Beyonce’s concert held here in addis 2000EC, that I couldn’t believe it was her ..you know… so I felt that I should get her interview so…went to her resting room carrying my tape. Reached the stairs.. no one was there. Then I entered the room, … thinking that she is coming soon and wondering how I’m going to start the conversation. Minutes passed nobody came out. Suddenly three huge, athletic, ’’Goldberg like body’’ guards appeared, they just moved towards me swiftly I couldn’t move so minutes later I found myself dumped next to the women’s toilet.
