Media entrepreneur, Femi Adefila, was obviously ecstatic as he beamed with smiles during the one year celebration of his radio station, Rave FM, Osogbo. In a chat with Saturday Beats, he hinted that even though he could have established his radio station at the commercial hub of the country, Lagos, he chose Osogbo for certain reasons.
He said, “I chose Osogbo because I have so much sentimental attachment to the town. I came to serve in Oshogbo in 1992 and I got retained after meritorious service as the best youth corps member in my set. I met my beautiful wife, Bimbo, here; I had all my kids here. So Osogbo is like my Shiloh. God has been very awesome to me and my enterprises in Osogbo. Though having a venture like this in Osogbo has its own challenges. We are far from where the media booty is shared which is Lagos. We are just eating the crumbs that fall from the table. But when you talk of security, power supply before it became erratic of recent, you talk of serenity, Osogbo has got potential.
“Don’t forget the fact that I’m from Osun State and somebody has to develop this state. It comes at a cost but it is the goal that is very important. So being in Osogbo, honestly I feel fulfilled, I feel accomplished that I am contributing my little quota in my own little way. We are making a difference.”
