Oluwagbenga Oluwafemi Dawodu, popularly known as Kristen Dawodu, the boss of KD Records, has disclosed what inspired his decision to broadened the horizon of his entertainment enterprise by floating an online entertainment platform to be called Wahalanetwork.
According to him, he created Wahalanetwork for entertainment and news update, “you know when anyone in Nigeria watch something crazy online they will be like Wahala and Wahala simply means problem (laughs). So, I thought of creating an Instagram page with the name problem network, I know people will want to follow easily to know what is happening on the page. I mean who doesn’t like entertainment, news and gossip? That was how Wahala network came to be. Wahalanetwork first of all the English meaning of Wahalanetwork is problemnetwork. The page is mainly for entertainment and news update,” he explained.
On why he prefers to stick to entertainment when he could easily have promoted sports, he justified: “That is what I’m good at; entertainment is the way for me. I love to put a smile on people’s faces. Nigeria is a tough country, and the least I can do is put a smile on their faces.”
With the online medium saturated with entertainment, what would Wahalanetwork do differently to stand out? Kristen Dawodu has a definite answer: “We will try as much not to post what other Nigerian bloggers post on their pages. We will create our own content. We won’t post fake gist just for attention.”
Kristen Dawodu further added: “We are currently in a state of evolution. Our followers can look forward to exclusive interviews of their favourite stars, scoops on never-known-before truths about celebs, videos and photos that are new and insightful.”
