A little rain each day will fill the river to overflowing is a notion that Adedoyin Ayomide Samuel, who is professionally known as Ayrubber, rode on to become one of the most sought-after radio presenters and a television personality.
Ayrubber learned to study while others were sleeping; worked while others were loafing; prepared while others were playing; and dreamt while others were wishing.
As a result, it wasn’t much of a surprise when Ayrubber was called to anchor a flagship news prohramme at Lagos Traffic Radio 96.1. The show centered around trend talks, happenings within the industry and so much more.
It was pure entertainment here as listeners were usually calling in their droves. Ayrubber gained so much recognition and drew hundreds of listeners through his mellifluous voice to the company.
Ayrubber’s experience in the mass media and flamboyant confidence of style made him a highly regarded and talked about journalist, who further plied his trade with Nigezie, a fully integrated music and entertainment channel that celebrates, promotes, and showcases the diverse talent and skills of the average Nigerian in the diaspora, as a voiceover artist.
On his accomplishments and satisfaction to have achieved so much within a short time being a bachelor and working as a journalist in various organizations, Ayrubber has this to say,
“It’s just really an amazing opportunity to be in the journalism place because I have actually learnt a lot, met a lot of people, and connected a whole lot with so many directors, CEOs for more opportunities and stuff. Journalism and tv is something I do strongly and the experience has been really amazing and I’m trying to grow more and be better,” said Ayrubber.
In a nation where citizens are encouraged to be entrepreneurs, not job seekers, but then no one gives capital to starters; in a nation where the majority of her graduates are constantly on the lookout for fads and the next big thing, Ayrubber has been able to carve out his way to greatness.
On the issue ravaging the society particularly the #EndSARS saga, Adedoyin Ayomide Samuel encouraged Nigerian youths o be steadfast with their pursuit for real change.
“I’m happy the youths didn’t sit down to let things go wrong. I think that went well. Whenever a youth is confronted by the police they record it to be on the safer side like the western world does and try to be polite and respectful when a policeman pulls you over.
“I tried it once when I was pulled over and I was super polite and respectful and when they noticed that they had to let me go because they had nothing on me,” Ayrubber counselled.
Being a versatile businessman who has managed to switch between career job and occupation effectively, Adedoyin confessed that his motivation is to be successful.
To achieve any meaningful result, he mentioned that one must work hard because “supposing” doesn’t fill the grain basket and “if” doesn’t fill the larder. Every fame has a foundation, so we all must work to attain greatness.
In the exact words of Ayrubber, “Being an entrepreneur is something really hard and tasking. I have to work all night whenever I have a client and my advice to younger ones is never to get tired. Research is important and network is important. What drives you should be fueled every day. Be deaf to people’s opinions. Be consistent and disciplined and try to always stand out.”
