was playing what I assumed to be christian music but I now think is the group's theme song when I first tuned in, been a mix of african music and a man talking in an african language since, sometimes full songs, sometimes just short clips.
I assume it's the same station as  https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82767.0.html

22:20 the same song as when I tuned in again and switch to english, a man giving a political speech about Zimbabwe and it's constitution and how they aren't requesting anything that breaks it I think.
22:24 Same song again and switch back to their native language

S7 - S9 +- with some noise but very listenable on Vermont Mountaintop Radio kiwiSDR

Song is actually a version of the Ondo State National Anthem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPYLef-hyhA

(originally posted in shortwave broadcasts but the nature of the station seems like it may actually belong here)

I also posted about this station in the SWBC forum. I first heard it on 12 June 2021 and have logged  it since. I've since noticed that the SWL community is picking up on it. I also initially thought it to be a religious broadcaster, but apparently it is in support of a Yourba independence movement in Nigeria.

Glen Hauser's bulletin appears to have the most information about the broadcasts. Apparently it is Radio Yoruba broadcasting via Woofferton on 9890 kHz. See http://www.hard-core-dx.com/article.php?story=20210614181502456&mode=print

Location: Northern Virginia. Realistic DX-398. Longwire antenna.

eQSLs appreciated. hhb9000 [at] hotmail [dot] com

Some miscellaneous information - Olayomi Koiki is the radio presenter for the station on 9890 kHz. ("Radio Ominira Yoruba" - "Radio Freedom Yoruba").
He is also an announcer on Starr Radio - 9JA (London, England), which focuses on Nigerian issues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f4ghcoqbn4 . It is 
Koiki Media ( https://koikimedia.com/ ) that has posted videos on Youtube of the test transmission of "Radio Ominira Yoruba."

Ah, thanks for the information, I've fixed the station ID in that case.
