EbonyLife TV announces an important break-through in the treatment of the subject of love, sex and relationships with its innovative and creative upcoming program entitled “Love Lounge.”
Love Lounge, subtitled as the programme designed to help “nurture the relationship you have into the relationship you want”, is a fun, cheeky and informative 60 minute Talk Show that employs the convergence media formats of Radio and TV in the sense that it is broadcast on ELTV and multicast on BeatFM 99.9.
Love Lounge is expected to stimulate maximum listener/viewer participation and would see the Show’s presenter, OrekaGodis, navigate her way through the woes of love with expert advice, taking questions from listeners and some celebs by way of calls, BBMs, SMS, email, letters, interactions online and blogs.
According to Sandra Amadio, Associate Director Programmes, Magazine and Talk, EbonyLife TV, and Executive Producer of Love Lounge, “What excites me about this Show, apart from the subject matter, is the unique approach in engaging our audience and content through our convergence media model. It’s a show that shakes up traditional TV formats and that arouses people’s perceptions on subjects that would otherwise be considered taboo in an African landscape. If I can get the chance to be purposeful in my work and trigger a fresh way of thinking – then it’s a job well done in my books.”
Love Lounge is set to approach the issues of love, sex and relationships in a professional, mature and creative way. It is designed as a platform where people can unravel the mysteries of love and provide answers to sensitive questions that people have but are probably too afraid, shy or careful to ask. The issues include ‘How to cope with being dumped’, ‘Women who beat their husbands’, ‘Partners who have addictions’, ‘Sex tips’, ‘Homosexuality in Africa’, and so much more.
Shot in a radio studio,Love Lounge is hosted by established Nigerian On Air Personality, OrekaGodis, who accidentally was signed up for the Show on Valentine’s Day. The Show also features a selection of credible Pan African experts on the subject to include Jerome YaoviOnipede, LilianEkanem, Dr Bassey Edet, AriyikeAkinbobola (of Bella Naija), KunleSoriyan, Lanre ‘Coach’ Olusola, South Africa’s renowned sexologist, DR. EVE and ‘Emotional Freedom technique’ expert Ray Perkel among others.
