Picture this

On the radio in Abuja
Recently I have had cause to look at our archive of pictures and shows and I’m amazed at how much work we have done. I am also saddened by how much work we have lost. The first few years of the show were live and the off air taping were not preserved. Ditto earlier work with MITV and Good Morning Nigeria and so on. We however still have an incredible archive of work done over the last 6 years which will be the back bone of a project which we will be announcing soon. Whilst sorting out our huge picture files, Mutiu came across these behind the scene pictures from the last two years which we thought to share with you.

Have a brilliant weekend.

So much enthusiasm for you and your work ... how about getting some of the bloggers on the show one day? (Am not angling for myself, too shy!)

@adeola and co, oliver twist abi, ok cool, we'll go dig deeper for the older pics. you'll see them next week.

@anonymous, you think l go willingly give oyinbo my money if there is a viable naija/african option;-)? Tony Payne the blogger huh? how do l get them Tony? Bayo must of course give the final nod, l dont wear makeup except for work and events so l have no idea what great make up is or how to apply them properly.

@logosian, yes but l creatively "recycle" some.

@linda ikeji, must work with you some day and that day is coming soon, trust me.

@chude, ;-)

@36/logosian of course you can come on the show, will do a bloggers edition one day soon, challenge is translating effectively the dynamics of this community to a mostly unaware mass audience but we will.

@iya ibeji, God no go let person see the kin insecurity and lack of worth those fake accent seek to hide. Amin l'oruko jesu.

@pumping! l am very excited about where l am going next, my lips are zipped for now but l assure you that you will be immennsely proud.
