Nigeria’s leading on-air personality and multi-talented presenter Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi has kicked off the recording of her long anticipated TV show.
Although details are still sketchy, her producers announced, today, that work started on the magazine show nearly two years ago with the crew finally moving to set last weekend in Lagos.
Simply called ‘Gbemi’, the show, the award-winning OAP says, seeks to create conversations on different issues and people, from the serious and scary, to the mundane and trivial; while engaging audiences on different platforms across many cities.
‘Our show explores various areas, and is part investigative, part entertaining; going beyond what has been discussed before’, the talker, who spent many years at Cool FM before joining The Beat, Gbemi says.
‘We’re shooting already, working with some of the best hands around, to make sure ‘Gbemi’ is worth the wait’ she added.
The show’s producer Jade Rawa says ‘Gbemi’ will be ready to air ‘in a matter of months, on local networks, cable channels, as well as on mobile and web’.
Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi is currently a director of programmes Naija FM, assistant director of programmes Beat FM, and host of the drive time show of Beat FM 99.9.
Gbemi is an alumnus of Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, and The Pan African University in Lagos, where she obtained a B.A. in Communication and Msc in Media and Communication respectively.
