'5 years ago I used to sneak into radio stations, but today...' - Ebenezar Wikina says as he coach radio station Staff
Ebenezar Wikina,  a Harvard-trained journalist and development practitioner who became famous after interviewing over 120 world leaders from more than 30 different countries has shared the story of his journey after he coach the Staff of a Port Harcourt based radio station. 

According to him; "I had a great time sharing some radio and digital tips with the folks at Cool FM
"It means even more to me because, about 5 years ago Milliscent Nnwoka used to sneak me into the studio to be part of a one-hour student show at Cool FM and Nigeria Info. 

"ThankGod Okorisha Donald and I would often hustle and almost beg to go on air  as if they were paying us for it. Then Andrew Perebi Eneyi would always look for free slots for us and hype us, even when we didn't have better experience.

"At the time, it didn't make any sense why I would want to rush to the studio just to speak a few sentences on air - and that's it for the week. Sometimes Milly would even put money in my bag cos I wouldn't have TP to go back."

"One thing I knew was that going there, listening to people, writing about the show... all made me happy.

"Five years later, apparently, I have now gathered a lot more experience to be able to share some thoughts with these cool superstars

"The key is: Don't stop growing, you earn the right to speak by listening - and listening very well." He concleded.
