Transmitting from all the angles… Yes I went there

Week in week out there’s almost always one issue or another trending on the Nigerian social media and this past week, it was the video of the Inspector General of Police transmitting reading with great difficulty. (A friend just reprimanded me from laughing at another person’s father so that’s gonna be the only thing to…

It’s not what it looks like…

Enjoyment unlimited, that’s what I thought I signed up for as a broadcaster. Standing in front of the camera or microphone and mesmerizing an audience sounds like the dream job for many people. Not to talk about the perks of attending all those exclusive red carpet events, award ceremonies, rubbing shoulders with the high and…

The way I am working is not working

I like the play on words above, borrowed from my days as a consultant when I always had to go through loads of business and economy related materials. I was such a terrible reader🙈. I actually spent more time searching for book summaries and reviews as a shortcut to digesting volumes of books. As I…

I am a Lazy Nigerian Youth – Reader Beware

I have never been one to shy away from shaking tables and with our dear president unwittingly kick-starting the #LazyNigerianYouths, I said to myself, I gotta jump on this one. I mean the president is right. He’s been reading my blog for some time now and when I didn’t write anything last week, he had…

A stab at voice-acting

I was a bit lazy this week and did not write an entry for the diary for this week (this something light version doesn’t count… I think). Forgive me.  I did do something new this week and that was voicing one of the poems I wrote a while back. I’m training to be a voice-actor…

It just became hot all of a sudden…

The two air-conditioning units were on and blowing supercooled air at 16oC (yeah, supercooled is the word, I know my thermodynamics) but it was getting hot all of a sudden in the studio. I looked at the gentleman standing to my right but there were no beads of sweat running down his head. That wasn’t…

Just another week… with a lot of drama

This week was a crazy one, a good crazy one. My oga (@thefavoredwoman) was out of the studio on two occasions and that gave me the opportunity to have my first live interview and also host a show all by myself. And then on Saturday, I had to host the @movieroadshow all by myself. The…

Story Hunter (Wakabout)

Content is King and every week, I’m always looking for the juiciest one going on around me. This week, that search led me to the canteen at the office. While working in the newsroom after my shift in the studio, I overheard a discussion about a video shoot about to go down at the office…

Mr. Busybody aka Gbeborun

One more story outside the studio walls and then we’re back to the radio… I have a terrible habit, I’m always eavesdropping on peoples’ conversations 🙈. I could be in a restaurant, classroom, at work or on a commercial bus and I’ll be chuckling at another person’s gist. Weird right? I know. Forgive my wandering…

Doughnuts, Auditions & The World Cup Trophy Tour

Not everyday studio studio sometin. The life of a broadcast intern continues outside the station and so today, I am talking about other things besides studio sometin. This Saturday, I had four places I needed to be. Krispy Kreme opening at IkejaCity Mall, an audition at Agidingbi, another audition at Allen Avenue and the FIFA…

This table I’m shaking…

This table I am shaking has three comedians and 1 OAP on it, I pray they don’t roast me. Let’s do this: Some people can like to play too much. That’s what you see right here. I am not contesting in any election or for any political office but according to @mcaddeydaprof, I look like…

On the Movieroadshow

I like watching movies, no, let me rephrase. I love watching movies. After Jesus, radio, TV, fine girls and dodo, I think movies would be atop the things I love in life. So when Chidiebere approached me and asked me if I was interested in joining the team of @themovieroadshow, I was like ghen ghen,…
