We had a chat with fast-rising OAP, Violet Ejiata, popularly known as Vee. She shares her journey, challenges and dreams with us. Enjoy.
Hey, how are you doing?
Hello, I’m doing great, thank you. Hope you’re well too?
Tell me more about you, family and educational background?
I hear you run a radio show on campus, tell me more about it?
I do run a show on Crown (101.5 FM) radio station called CAMPUS BEATZ. It is an awesome pop show for highlighting campus tales and campus lifestyle under our Campus Storybook segment and a central platform for the showcase and promotion of campus emerging artistes (who are obviously underappreciated and not acknowledged enough) under our Campus Beatz Top 10 Countdown. The ultimate objective is to deliver spicy entertainment to our listeners.
What’s the best moment you’ve had on radio?
Your favourite guest so far?
He’s a campus artist named K Del. He’s a great and fun fella.
Which celeb would you like to have on you show?
What’s your biggest strength as an OAP?
I am an articulate speaker and I have the ability to catch the audience’ interest, maintain their jazz and leave them yearning for more sauce.
What’s your biggest challenge as an OAP?
Working fellow Virgos. Lol *kidding*. My biggest challenge as an OAP on a personal level is the fact that I’m a perfectionist and I work tirelessly towards the success of every new show because I believe that new listeners tune in every week. It is because of these that any hiccup kind of dares my balance. I am an articulate speaker and I have the ability to catch the audience’ interest, maintain their jazz and leave them yearning for more sauce.
How did you venture into this field?
I’ve ALWAYS had an itch for broadcasting. At a point in my life, the mirror and my phone recorder were my besties because they were my favorite audience. I derive pleasure in communication and I really can’t picture myself not talking and that has put me on this path.
What are your plans for the future?
What is your most prized possession?
My heirlooms (I have a couple from my mum).
One thing you cannot leave home without?
My phone? *laughs*
5 things that inspire you
My past experiences. Stories and life lessons of established personalities. My vision of the bigger picture. Knowledge of God’s ceaseless love for me.
Describe your fashion style in one sentence
Well, I’m a fashion forward individual so I’m mostly stylish with a sprinkle of bizarre. *bats eyelids*
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat, which can you not do without?
Definitely Instagram. The comic videos are spice to life.
