Radio lovers, especially the female folks, are excitedly looking forward to something mega cooking and set to hit the airwaves of the brown roof city of Ibadan.
Two of the most loved female presenters in the city are set to collaborate on a first of its kind project tagged Oro Obinrin. Ronke Giwa Onafuwa (Ronny G) of Splash FM and Folakemi Arowolo (Folakemighty) of Naija FM are two premium radio brands in the city, known for their dexterity on air and their high standing values when it comes to everything female. Despite the fact that they represent two competing brands, it is not news that they share similar moral values to a large extent, and these values endear them to the conservative elite community of the city.
It was therefore a pleasant surprise when both power houses announced on their individual social media platforms that they will be collaborating on a project. The announcement was beautifully made with lovely joy filled pictures taken by one of the foremost celebrity photographers in the city, Lypix. The picture featured both ladies adorning the same fabric with joy and happiness written all over them.
However, many curious observers have many questions yet to be answered! Does it mean their stations are collaborating too? Is it even a radio show? If yes, will the show be simultaneously aired on both stations? In what Language will the project be executed, considering the fact that Ronny G presents in English, while Folakemighty does her thing in Pidgin, but the title of the project is in Yoruba! Is this another feminist movement or coven 🙊?
Well, we will wait till Thursday the 20th of August when the project is set to be unveiled, then we will have all the answers to our numerous questions! Even though the hash tags are telling us some things, we will deliberately look away, because we can’t afford to spoil the fun for ourselves by ourselves!
