One of Nigeria’s veteran musician’s, King Sunny Ade, is set to float his own radio station as he would be stepping into the spot light of broadcasting. The native radio station which would be in Ondo State would be named M&C (Music & Culture).
He has however, assured his fans that he would personally bring his influence into the station both globally and locally, the musician is said to have deliberately taken his time to perfect the technical process related to running a standard radio station and has assembled a management team including financial directors, one of Nigeria’s foremost journalists as the media manager and a top broadcast engineer with himself as chairman.
He also shed more light on why it took him so much time to get the station up and running, saying; “Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well. The NBC has its operational standard, so do I. I deliberately took time off to carefully select a team of loyal partners who share (the) same vision on what a music station should be. Don’t forget also that this will be the first radio station in Nigeria that will be solely devoted to promoting our culture and our music”.
The station would however be ready to flag off by the end of this year being 2015.
