"Telling our Stories" - A tribute Komla Dumor from the TEDxEuston Team
...
In Komla Dumor, we not only lost a TEDxEuston speaker, but we lost a friend and brother, who in his day job as lead presenter on BBC's programme Focus on Africa, does what we try hard to do once a year at TEDxEuston - tell our stories with our voice. We lost Komla on Saturday 18/01/14 and Ike Anya offers this tribute on behalf of the entire TEDxEuston team.
...
Chikwe, had suggested Komla Dumor, and there had been enthusiastic nods and yells of assent from across the room.
...
I wonder whether you could invite a friend, Ghanaian and senior broadcast journalist at the BBC, Komla Dumor to be a TEDxEuston speaker.
...
I was co-hosting with my colleague Adaugo, we had divvied up the speaker introductions and I was responsible for introducing Komla. We had rehearsed our introductions all day the previous day, and because I preferred to present without notes, I had more or less memorized Komla's introduction. I talked about how he had started as a medical student in Ghana and had then left for a career in journalism in Ghana rising to his current role at the BBC.
As I went to the Green Room where he was being fitted with a microphone, I found him exchanging banter with the team members there. As I walked him to the stage, I asked if he was okay and he told me, " This is what I do every day" And then he whispered in my ear, " Please, when you're introducing me, don't say anything about Ghana."
...
Komla took to the stage, and within moments, had the whole hall on their feet singing the Nigerian national anthem. And then he proceeded to deliver a humorous, honest and powerful talk on telling the African story. He received a standing ovation, and when the talks were put up a few months later, it was quickly viewed by thousands of people. Even in his passing, the talk will remain online as a tribute to what he stood for.
...
But I was glad that Komla had the opportunity of sharing his story with us, and that we had had the privilege of bringing it to the world. As a commentator today said, it is not often that Presidents and market-women are united in grief. Komla did that, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues, as we join them in bidding him, a great son of Africa, adieu.
...
Komla Dumor is gone but not all that he stood for...
