ISICHEI-OKAFOR KWUNKEYI IS KEEPING UNIBEN FM ON THE RADAR

Here’s my motto: an industry that doesn’t continue to encourage new talent
will continue to fall behind. With the state of sameness evident across all
facets of the industry today, the need for fresh creative talent is
paramount. Outside the hype, in terms of content, Nigerians are no longer
dominating Africa in the music industry, same as in broadcasting; we are no
longer the avatars for excellence. It’s time we go around to source for
hungrier talent. One of those for the future of on-air personalities is
ISICHEI-OKAFOR KWUNKEYI, aka KHEYI.

He presently plies his trade with Uniben FM 100.1. This final year student of Theatre Art in the University of Benin is not a work in progress; he’s ready for the big stage in the
broadcasting industry.

Talking about his journey!

‘’As a child I always listened to YAW on Wazobia FM Lagos and wished that
one day I will be like him, I actually applied to study Mass Communication,
but I ended up in the theatre, which I have never regretted. At Uniben FM,
at first, I wasn’t given an opportunity due to the fact that I had the
dream and passion but the talent wasn’t there yet. MOSES AKERELE and APEJI VICTOR (MC
AGABZY) were the two people who actually taught me and groomed me in the
art of radio presenting.

“In 2015 I was employed to do a Friday show on UNIBEN FM. Over time, I
began to host shows on Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday. In 2017, my show
Campus City Xpress became a daily show. These two programmes received
massive listening traction in the campus and its environs. Asides radio
work, I’m into lots of other things like comedy, acting, filmmaking, event
planning, branding, promotion and compere/mc. Managing being a thespian and
trying to be a pro in the radio business has not been easy at all, but the
passion and drive I put into being an OAP is immeasurable. I won the UNIBEN
EKEWAN CAMPUS AWARD (U.E.C.A) in the category of OAP OF THE YEAR. In MISS
UNIBEN 2017, I got nominated under the category of MOST INFLUENTIAL STUDENT
IN UNIBEN”.
