After having successful hosted a couple of editions in Ibadan, Abuja and Kaduna, the much-talked about Nigerian Broadcasters’ Nite (NBN) is back in Lagos.

It would be recalled that the ‘train’ of the monthly event solely designed to further celebrate broadcasters, On-Air Personalities, TV and Radio stations, left Lagos in 2013 for Ibadan, Abuja and Kaduna in 2014.

However, come Saturday May 30th, 2015, it will be the turn of Rhythm 93.7 FM’s DJ Humility and Brila FM’s ace presenters,Ogechukwukanma Ogwo and Murphy Ijemba, to be celebrated at the Nigerian Broadcasters’ Nite, holding at the new Vapours Nite Club; the celebrity hangout, situated at 879,Samuel Manuwa street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

It may interest you to know that the dynamic duo of Ogechukwukanma Ogwo and Murphy Ijemba emerged Most Popular Radio Sportscasters at the prestigious Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards (NBMA) that was held in 2012 and 2013 respectively, while DJ Humility of Rhythm 93.7FM, was crowned ‘Best In-House DJ’ in Nigeria during the 2011 maiden edition.

It’s no doubt that DJ Humility, Ogey and Murphy are currently on top of their games.

Ogechukwukanma Ogwo has nothing to prove to anyone as far as secular and sports’ broadcasting is concerned, having been on top of it for more than 12 years. Enchanting natural characteristics such as great voice and playful personality coupled with her mastery of sports issues and penchant for meaningful analysis, she is no doubt a great sports presenter.

She started off with ‘Straight from the Hearton RayPower FM in April 2002 and then became a presenter anchoring the ‘Top 10 Countdown Show’ and ‘Rock Radio’. In August, 2003, she auditioned for, and got a job withBrila 98.9 FM.

Ogey as she’s fondly called, rose to the ranks of starting off hosting ‘Whistles Of The Night’, ‘The Afternoon Blazing Drive’, ‘Top 8 Countdown’, ‘The Sunday Morning Show’ and ‘The Super Morning show’. As she carved a niche for herself with entertainment programme, Ogey has hosted top celebrities like Tuface, DBanj, Don Jazzy (All then- Mo Hits acts), Paul Adefarasin, Rev Anslem Madubuko, Ali baba, Mike Ezuruonye, Rita Dominic, Olamide, Kenny & D1, Omawunmi among others.

Having explored the beauty of entertainment through and through, she however started yearning for a more challenging side of broadcasting. She then plunged into sports broadcasting and currently hosts ‘The afternoon show’from 12noon-4pm, ‘The Lunch Hour Sports Cruise’, 1pm-2pm Mondays - Fridays and ‘Saturday Breakfast Show’,6am-12noon. She has hosted sports celebrities like Obafemi Martins, John Fashanu, Taiye Taiwo, Abedi Pele among countless others.

For DJ Humility, the turntable majesty-born, Benedict Afagwu hugged the spotlight when he won the Benson & Hedges DJ Championship in the early 2000. Since then, Rhythm FM’s famous in-house DJ has maintained a steady rise and rise in fame and fortune. DJ Humility has not only performed in some of the biggest shows held both at home and abroad, he has successfully staged personal shows i.e. the yearly DJ Classics. He has rocked clubs, parties and some of his singles has earned him more respect in the music scene.

On his part, Murphy Ijemba does not live in anybody’s world; he creates his own- mannerisms, attitude, beliefs, dress sense and the man who calls himself Radio Paparazzi does not conform to the norms. Creative and expressive, Murphy’s outlandish characteristics are visible in his presentations on radio, applied so positively listeners that can’t help craving for more.

Murphy’s style on radio can be described as a combination of passion and energy which produces a sporting orgasm.

Now that the stage is set, there is no doubt as to what to expect when these amazing OAPs emerge for the Night. Aside DJ Humility’s special performance for the night, DJ Obi and DJ Debby will raise the roof with their scintillating mixes on turntable.

The Nigerian Broadcaster’s Nite is powered by The Reality Entertainment in association with Vapors Nite Club. Red carpet is slated for 9pm with special performances from rising and shining music stars. The event will be anchored by humour merchants, De-Don and MC Lin Chung.
