One of the dreams of veteran juju musician, King Sunny Ade, is to float a radio station. And indeed, that dream has materialised as he inaugurates his MandC FM tomorrow after a three-week test run.
According to the Executive Director of the radio station, Mr. Clement Ige, the Board of Directors of the station is mindful of its national vision in putting together a professional team headed by Mr. Donald Falayi to achieve “ a reference outfit” in the history of broadcasting in Nigeria.
“We took enough time on the drawing board because M&C FM is strategically different from the pool in terms of orientation and goal. You are going to listen to a medium that will reflect Nigeria in many aspects that are conceptually designed to inspire practically everybody, young and old.”
On the Board of the station which has King Sunny Ade as Chairman, are eminent professionals which include Dr. Yemi Farounbi, respected media administrator and diplomat, Engr. Dejo Olugbodi and Mr. Clement Ige, a veteran journalist.
The station, Ige said, will be commissioned few days after the commencement of its full operation.
