Staff and friends of Pidgin English radio station, Wazobia FM, had an unforgettable grand ceremony to mark its 10th anniversary last Sunday.
Held at Terra Kulture in Lagos, the gig pooled celebrities from the media, corporate organisations and entertainment industry. For a radio station that had many odds stacked against it right from inception, a 10th anniversary definitely calls for celebration and jubilation. The camaraderie was felt at each stage of the occasion which started with a cocktail meet-and-greet where fans and friends mingled with their favourite On Air Personalities (OAPs).
Hosted by Omotunde Adebowale, fondly known as Lolo 1 of Wazobia FM, OAPs of the station were given the opportunity to tell the audience about their working experience with the station as well as showcase other talents they have. For instance, Ratata showcased his musical abilities when he delivered a reggae song in a local dialect of Edo State.
The constant name on the lips of many of the OAPs was Steve Onu aka YAW because many of the OAPs owe their success to YAW, the Head of Presenters. They lauded him for his unflinching belief in their talents as well as the management who gave them room to explore their talents.
The station is renowned for its humorous approach to news and topical issues. “Our main aim at inception was to convey news to the layman in a language that they can easily understand,” said Tatiana Moussalli Nouri, Deputy Group MD of Wazobia FM.
