Outside the borders of the Lagos metropolis, a few other states in the country like the ancient city of Ibadan can boast of having some of the most entertaining on-air personalities. Whenever anyone drives into that town for the first time and they are lucky enough to tune in to Splash 105.5FM while Kolade Dominate is on air within the hours of 10 pm – 1 am (Tuesday), 5 pm – 10 pm (Thursday), 10 pm – 12 midnight (Friday), I can place a bet on it that you will be addicted listening to him. Referred to as the golden voice of the southwest, Kolade has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that he knows the ropes.
