The mood will go from sober to celebratory this Sunday as Nigeria’s influential talk show for young people, Rubbin’ Minds hosts three impressive women.
The first guest will be Ojia Adamolekun, a medical doctor and sister to Irawo Adamolekun, the 27-year-old doctor who was fatally shot by yet-unidentified gunmen in the Anthony Village area of Lagos on January 11, this year.
The news shocked young Nigerians – especially as expressed on social media – and has led to an outpouring of grief, and frustration on the state of the nation’s security,” said the host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. “And we will be having Ms. Adamolekun in the studio to share her story about this sad experience, how her family is coping especially since this is the second time they are losing a son to Nigeria’s many problems, the love shown by other young Nigerians, and where she thinks we can all go from here.”
The show however ends on an uplifting note, with the interview of Chika Unigwe. The author, mother of four and Caine Prize nominee, who is based in Belgium will be talking about her art and winning the Nigeria Prize for Literature 2012, endowed by the Nigeria LNG Limited.
There will also be an interview with the hottest property on Nigerian television/radio at the moment, Toke Makinwa. The lady who wears many hearts as TV presenter, radio presenter, even host, fashionista, and blogger will be talking about her phenomenal year, when she became a firm part of the pop culture, what exactly drives here, and where exactly she is taking all her celebrity.
“It will be an inspiring Sunday,” Obi-Uchendu said. “And I can’t wait for these conversations.”
