LOKAL FM MEETS…MAZI KAYCEE OGUEJIOFOR

Kaycee is a handful!

Took a lot of cajoling to get him on the podcast and when he came through he didn’t disappoint.

He remains one of the most honest and blunt voices on social media in matters of artiste management and more. His grating sense of humour is expressed in our fun conversation.

Enjoy!

THE BROADCAST RADIO MASTER CLASS [MARCH 2017 EDITION] RECAP…

I had an awesome time speaking on Podcasting at The Broadcast Radio Master Class [March 2017 Edition] put together by my good friend Fola “4Lah” Afolayan.
I particularly doff my hat to professionals such as Victor Orhorhoro and Tola “Jinjah” Adeogun. Both experts made teaching a breeze blending long drawn lessons with practical perspectives and updated techniques in News Reading and Radio Imaging and Production.
A big shout out to Faith Dafe Joseph too for her input and it was great seeing an old colleague again!
I noticed with pleasure during my session an array of creative minds that could do well by taking advantage of podcast’s novelty to launch their great ideas and contribute to radio’s alternative while catering to narrow audiences. It might seem a daunting task at first but practice and resilience should provide profitable long term results.

THE ART OF THE INTERVIEW

In recent times some local presenters [TV and Radio] have come under fire for making their guests uncomfortable by prying into their private lives.

OMAWUMI WALKS OUT OF INTERVIEW

EMEKA IKE WALKS OUT OF INTERVIEW ANGRILY

Easily, some argue that Public Figures or Celebrities lose their rights to privacy once their popularity begins to soar. There are arguments that the public is entitled to every seedy detail of a morbid affair or irreparable vice.

I beg to differ, more because many of these interviews seem designed for the sole purpose of tainting a Celebrity. What it does expose however, is the interviewer’s lack of tact and interviewing skills.

I watched many Larry King interviews growing up and still do [Thank God for DVDs]. I also read about his early beginnings on radio and I do think his views will help the next interviewer with a supposedly “controversial” guest.

Before those, let me ask a few questions:

How much of your guest do you know, besides the malicious gossip on blogs and co.?

Do you conduct  in-depth research about the person you are interviewing so that you can use the knowledge about their life and career to enhance the quality of the interview?

Do you ask open-ended questions, which allow the guest to contribute as much detailed information as they would like and in turn which allows you as an interviewer to follow up with probing questions?

Do you listen attentively to your guest and not ask any questions that your guest has answered in response to a previous question?

To the last question, once an interviewee goes “Like I said before…”, you’ll realise how terrible that makes the interview.
