AFTER recording massive success with REDTV, Nigeria’s United Bank for Africa, UBA is set to replicate similar feat with RED Radio.

 

 

The development is a further demonstration of the bank’s unalloyed commitment to ensuring premium services as well as reaffirming its dominance in Nigeria and across Africa.

 

 

The decision to kick off a radio arm is on the heels of the innumerable success that REDTV has recorded with countless globally respected, first rate productions that have been churned out under the supervision of Bola Atta, executive producer, REDTV and UBA’s Group Director for Marketing and Corporate Communications.

 

 

Only recently, REDTV’s ‘The Men’s Club’ emerged winner of Gage’s Award for Web Series of the Year 2020. A testament to the expertise and quality of production, supervised by Atta.

 

 

Following a thorough audit by the organisers of the awards, TMC which was nominated alongside four other popular online shows, clinched the award and was announced as the winner in an elaborate virtual event which was held on Saturday, April 24th, 2021.

 

 

As technology continues to drive innovation, the broadcast media, especially radio, is also devising ways to make the radio experience worthwhile for listeners. And RED Radio is positioned to offer the sterling experience.

 

 

In its short existence, RED Radio has positioned itself as one distinctive radio platform known for creativity, innovation, uniqueness, and style.

Atta says the RED Radio, which is available 24/7, is a dynamic and creative online radio channel, that provides round-the-clock informative and entertaining content while striving to bring out the best of Africa.

 

 

She also explained that the platform is an affirmation of the leading role that UBA is playing in the innovative space on the African continent as the bank keeps seeking more ways to reach out to and galvanise people.

 

 

“RED Radio can be described as a meeting place. It is an avenue to discuss all kinds of issues that affect the youths on the continent, whether it be business-related, health, relationships, sports, lifestyles, anything,” she began.

 

 

Continuing, Atta says, “As we bring people together, we also entertain them with music from across the continent.’ ‘it’s such a cool and diverse platform with shows in different languages to appeal to a wide section of listeners. I leave it on quietly on my iPad constantly, catching up with anything I have missed.’

 

 

Noting that radio plays a critical part in the development of a country and the continent at large, Atta says RED Radio would leave nothing to chance but contribute positively to the course.

 

 

One of the flagships shows on RED Radio that has been getting positive reviews includes the ‘Barbershop Chronicles,’ a talk show featuring Shody, Sess, Alhaji Popping, and Femisoro. For the programme, the four co-hosts discuss life matters from the perspective of men.

 

 

Another programme that is fast becoming rave of the moment is the ‘Diary of an Africana.’ The programme follows the journey of a young African woman as she manoeuvres through various obstacles whilst she explores her true self.

Beyond lip service, the bank, which is known for its culture of excellent service, has continuously innovated all of its business segments, whilst delivering top-notch operational efficiencies and best-in-class customer service. In recent time, the reward for creating such superior value has come in form of customer satisfaction and numerous local and international awards, thus consolidating their leadership position in Africa. For the bank, those awards are evidence of the diligent execution of its strategic initiatives geared towards customer service fulfillment.

 

 

There is no gain saying that over the years the bank which is passionate about customer satisfaction has proven to be in the forefront of numerous cutting edge innovations in a bid to effectively satisfy its increasingly growing customer base, placing it ahead of its contemporaries in terms of innovation and overall customer well-being.

Meet Adenike Animasahun, Fast Rising Teacher Turned Actor Goes To Location With Teniola

Published

Adenike Animashaun has just completed her new movie titled Teniola, a movie Content she has described as a master piece that would correct vices in the society that border on marital squabbles, especially in some homes of renowned men of God.

 

According to the Ekiti State based Nollywood Actor, she said, “This is a project I believed would go places and it will better the lives of so many out there that are suffering in silence.

Teniola is a true life story of a man of God whose quest to serve God made him jettison his responsibility to his beautiful wife. The Pastor at a point had no time sexually for the wife again and the woman did seek solace elsewhere and trouble began in the house that used to be peaceful.”

 

 

Adenike said many out there would gain a lot by watching the movie from how the trouble began and how the family was able to settle their differences and putting it behind them.
Her sojourn in the movie world dated back to a decade ago when she wrote a story meant for book publication but she later turned it to a home movie.

She said, “My quest for drama fell into place during my undergraduate days at the university. Being a language student, it’s paramount to take courses in drama, and we had drama classes almost all the sessions in school. One of my lecturers that handled the course was very good at it and this gingered my interest and here I am today. I have been in the industry for over a decade and to my name, I have five different movies.”

Her first movie she titled Imado had Nollywood Actors based in Ekiti as major cast and in quick succession, she came up with another one titled Ogun Odun. This time, fellow actors that are veterans in the industry were called to location and this gave her a facelift in her career.

 

 

Adenike said, “Having discovered the passion and my love for movie making, this propelled me to visit Lagos and I went straight to Odunfa Caucus to polish the talent in me. I met Sunny Alli who introduced me to Alhaji Yinka Quadri, and the whole of Odunfa gave me the necessary support I needed and the story has been a great one today.”

 

 

Reacting to how she has been able to manage her profession as a teacher-cum-actor, she said, “Acting is more or less a holiday job to me. I love teaching and part of my plan is taking it further than being a classroom teacher in a secondary school to a lecturer. So, this I believe would tell people how much I love teaching as a profession.

 

“Meanwhile, acting is like a passion- something I do anytime we are on long vacation. To God be the glory, I have been able to do well despite having it as plan B in my thought.”

 

 

She stressed further that taking her location to Lagos for her movie, Teniola made it a much bigger project than the rest four she had done before now. She said, “Having to feature top stars like Yomi Fash-Lanso, Yetunde Wunmi, Bukky Biola, Ladi Foarin, Silver Animasahun, Funmi Ladepo and others gave the movie more plans and better prospect than the previous ones from my stable. Teniola is directed by Lekan Oropo, and all these are wonderful people that made my coming to Lagos to shoot a movie for the first time an act to remember.”

Taking an insight into her new production, she said, “There is no crime if a woman begs her hubby for sex. I can beg my husband for sex, this is what many out there don’t do and in the cause of that, many have stooped so low sleeping with their security guards, neighbors and their drivers despite being married.

 

 

This was Teniola’s mistake and it almost ruined her home before something drastic was done to safe the situation. Women should stop dying in silence, do what will prevent your home from collapse and protect the future of your children. Talking to one’s partner is the best remedy in today’s marriage. There is always a big gain in talking to one another in a marriage; this and many more are the reality in Teniola.”

 

The Ebira born actress said she picked interest in Yoruba language right from her childhood. “I am from Kogi state, I am an Ebira lady by birth but my parents lived and had all their children in Yoruba land, hence we were given names in Yoruba and along the line, I married and have children for a Yoruba man.”

 

 

Her next movie according to her is Afusa Olofi. She said, she will be going back to location soon to shoot this breath-taking movie that will rule the entertainment industry.

 

 

“Afusa Olofi is another big one coming from me. It is a story that will give people another phase of deceit, intrigues in an educative and entertaining way.
