So yes, I'm very happy that I was able to pull off having all these many guests all at once on one show. Dang! It has never been done on radio ever. Not that I know of, especially not in Africa. So, yes that was SUICIDE, a creative technological suicide. Hehehe.

And the traffic was craaaaazy, with so many listeners and fans trying to call in at the same time, to the point, a few of my guests, got dropped off and couldn't connect back into the show. And I'm so sorry I lost them.

Well, you all may not know this, but it's a double celebration for me as I mentioned in my recent post  "12 Things I'm Proud I Achieved In 2015". This month also marks my 10th year in the Creative Industry from my early stint as an Upcoming Actor on Reality TV with Amstel Malta Box Office (AMBO) in 2005, to featuring in Movies and playing some of the best characters in Popular Nigerian Television Soap Operas, Hosting TV Shows, Red Carpet Events, Recording TV & Radio Voice-Overs/Jingles/PSA's and Writing Screen Plays. Despite time and many challenges, I have persevered...I feel like during this long walk, I have grown and accomplished so much. And I'm ready to accomplish even more of my goals in 2016.

So did we have unfiltered fun? Absolutely! But don't take my word for it. If you missed all the uncensored QUIRKY happenstances, on the live show. LISTEN in Now...
