One of the Ibadan finest Sportscasters, Kenny Ogunmiloro of Fresh 105.9 FM gushed over legendary Edmund Obilo of Splash 105.5 FM after listening to his insightful chat with the first child of Alaafin of Oyo this morning, Saturday, February 12, 2021 on State Affairs program.
Kenny’s statement reads; “I am a radio person and I listen to the radio a lot, 10years ago I listened to a P.P.A on Oluyole FM where I heard about a vacancy for a job at a 3-star hotel in Ibadan. I applied for the post, went for an interview, and got the job as the I.T manager of that hotel
It was at that hotel that I met Mrs. Jumoke Adesua who came in as a guest, I got to know she’s the G.M of Star FM 91.5 and that was how she took me to Star FM and my journey towards becoming a sports O.A.P started, before going to Star FM, I was just a sports analyst on radio stations in Ibadan.
So I can say listening to Radio “helped me” and that prompted me to love listening to the radio more. I listen to programs where i can learn more even it means using the Radio Garden to listen to stations outside Ibadan. So i don’t just listen to any OAP or any program, I must be sure there are things to learn before I stay glued to you.
Let me also add that I listen to radio more than I watch television and in the course of listening to different radio stations I have been able to identify some very good OAPs that I feel deserve to work at bigger radio stations and to God be the glory, I have recommended about 10 that have moved to bigger stations in this state and beyond.
As usual, I was just listening to different radio programs this morning. I wanted a program where national issues would be discussed extensively and intelligently, after listening to my radio station where the 2 legends Komolafe Olaiya and Olalomi Amole were doing the things on radio cracking meaningful jokes and entertaining their audience, I tuned to Splash FM and I heard Edmund Obilo speaking with the daughter of Alaafin of Oyo. They were talking about metaphysics and if there is a “supernatural power” that can make someone rich through rituals. I couldn’t tune away as I was enjoying the chat
Ladies and gentlemen, Oga Edmund Obilo is a KING and a HUGE blessing to this industry. I confirmed it again this morning
His intelligence level, the art of asking questions, and composure is lit
You blessed my ears this morning, thank you boss Edmund Obilo.
You deserve a statue in front of Splash FM when you retire.
