It took me 19 years to set up a radio station –Kenny Ogungbe

Media entrepreneur , Kenny Ogungbe, has been associated with radio for more than 30 years of his life but his dream of becoming a radio station owner did not come to fruition until about two years ago .

Giving more insight into his love for radio and broadcasting generally in a chat with
Saturday Beats , Baba Keke as the 48- year – old is fondly called , revealed that he chased the dream of owning a radio station for about 19 years before it became a reality.

“I had requested for a radio license over 19 years ago but I did not get it because to run a radio station in Nigeria, it must be approved by the president .

“ I am not a politician and I do not have any affiliation with any political party neither do I have any godfather that could have helped me fast- track my request .

“ It was Chief Raymond Dokpesi that spoke with former President Goodluck Jonathan and I was able to get the license .

“ All this process took me about 19 years but I am glad that today we are celebrating our second year anniversary as a radio station .

“ After I got the license, I felt on top of the world because it is one of the things I have been looking forward to achieving in my life , ” he said .

Speaking further , Ogungbe told
Saturday Beats that in as much as he was happy to have realised his dream , running a business in Nigeria has come with its own challenges.

“ The challenges that I have faced over the last two years that I set up Kennis FM , have indeed been enormous .

“We run on generator for hours every day and this eats deeply into the little profit we should have made .

“ It is also difficult to get equipment needed to run the station as a result of the high import duty .

But we thank God for pushing us ahead , ” he said .
