“The Fights Within” radio broadcast is a live gospel radio program which discusses real life challenges and how to handle them in order to fulfil life’s purpose. The aim of the program is to constantly empower, transform and renew the lives of her audience by bringing guests from different walks of life who share real life experiences, struggles and victories, and also encouraging the audience not to give up on their life’s journey and on God.

“The Fights Within” airs every Wednesday on Rhema Gospel Radio 101.5 at 7pm CT hosted by Manuela Obas, alongside Samuel McGee who is also a co-host of the program.


“The Fights Within” radio program is based on Manuela Obas book titled “The Fight Within” which was published in 2019. The book is about her life, her journey, and the struggles she had in responding to God’s call and the victories God has gave to her. She was inspired to write the book to encourage someone out there who is going through different seasons in their life because of their decision to follow and serve God. She shares my story, her experiences and how far God has brought her through her journey and let her readers know that God has never failed or abandoned those who follow him diligently.

The idea for the radio program was born during one of her interviews at the radio station when she was offered the opportunity to have her radio station so as to reach more people with this message of hope and love.
The radio broadcast officially started in January 23, 2020, with the first live broadcast airing on February 5th, 2020 with Manuela Obas as the first host. The Fights Within is now a registered LLC and has other products/services.
