In commemorating World Press Freedom Day (WPFD) slated for 3 May 2021 and celebrating the historic milestone 30th anniversary of the Windhoek Declaration which has undoubtedly shaped the Namibian media landscape today, Fesmedia Africa put out a continental call for Radio Jingles. The competition ran from 19 March 2021 to 29 March 2021.

The 2nd runner-up was Ange Joel Agbla from Benin, who is a Radio Technician, and also a student at the University of Abomey Calavi (UAC), and currently lives in the city of Cotonou, Benin.
