So yesterday myself and FAB Fashion Ed Pepper took a trip to Voice of Africa Radio, 94.3fm studios for a FABulous chat about our FAB Magazine On The Road with DJ Deoba Authentic.
Dj Deoba Authentic is so FABulous! Cool and charismatic. He made us feel at ease straight away and throughout the interview.
Also in the studio with us was Rachael and Kwaimina who are currently volunteering at the station doing research, who were again both very nice and made me and Pepper feel very comfortable, helping us to take images of our time there.
Deoba Authentic is a DJ, singer and presenter on VOAR, 94.3fm. He is a proud Nigerian Based in the United Kingdom. As an artist he is described as a souful African. You can find his tune 'Aye La Wa Je' on Youtube.
For me it was my third radio 'interview', not including the nerve wracking SilverBird TV FAB interview myself, Mr FAB and Sinem did in December. I'm not sure they get better in the sense of my nerves always acting up, but I guess you do get used to something the more you do it... as at least I wasn't shaking this time. Why no matter how much I psych myself that it's just a 'chat with a friend', having a mic in my mouth and aeroplane sized headphones on kinda dismisses those thoughts almost instantly.
One day I'll laugh at how nervous I got after my tenth interview that week, but right now I still get NERVOUS. I laugh it off. I'm a nervous laugher. Probably why people always tell me I'm always smiling and laughing, it's all lies! Haha I'm so joking! I like smiling and being happy obviously! :)
