‘My journey to Lagos was the turning point in my career’, EmmCee RNB
Award-winning Nigerian On-Air Personality, Henry Ogunbodede better known as EmmCee RNB has recounted how his visit to Lagos kick-started his career as an On-Air Personality(OAP).
According to the award-winning OAP, “My career as an OAP was all inspired by a journey to Lagos in the year 2010 when I came around for an event. I was the Master of Ceremony(MC) because at that time my major focus was just being a professional MC/Compere and Comedian, so I had a gig I came to Lagos for, and during my stay around Ajah at that time I would just tune to different radio frequency and during that time I listened to a pidgin show, I can’t really remember the particular station but it was a pidgin show, to me at that time the pidgin I was hearing was the same pidgin we speak, I wasn’t impressed with the radio host but I just felt I could do better if I was a radio host.
“So after my event, I went back to my base in Benin city, Edo State with the hope of getting time to present a pidgin radio show, so one day I was discussing with my aunt (Mercy Elakhe) about looking out for a radio station I can work for, and she suggested that there is a new radio station in town ‘BronzeFm 101.5 Radio Nigeria’ that I should go try out my luck of which I did after going to record a 5 mins demo on a Cassette of my pidgin programme idea, that was how the journey started around December 2010 but didn’t go on air until January 2011 when my first 30 mins pidgin radio show ‘Una Don Hear’ was aired, at first it was a recorded show but after a while of undergoing training and mentoring under Radio Nigeria broadcaster, it was good to go for me to continue my show and since then the journey has been smooth from Benin city to the brown roof city of Ibadan, and now we are in Lagos, Nigeria”, he said.
Sharing plans for the new year to his over 12,800 fans on Instagram, EmmCee RNB hinted that he would be releasing a new single alongside visuals of his new song titled, ’Tell’ featuring Oga Network, produced by Chechdaproducer, adding that he might give them a full body of work come 2021.
