Olayemi who presents shows on Radio Continental and Television Continental says there is no limit to how far women can rise in the edia. “It’s been a beautiful ride .I know that people say that in a certain industry there is chauvinism, men dominating and not allowing the women to do so. I don’t think so. It’s a thing of the mind. I believe there is no limit to how far women can rise in the media.
It’s a creative world; you can think something and achieve what you thought about .It starts from the mind .With God’s grace you will get to your desired height. I don’t think there are cases of someone bringing you down .I have been the head of programmes and I know that there is no limit to what one can do. One can always rise to the top.
On what stands her out as a broadcaster, she has this to say: “I present my show in a relaxed manner. When it comes to talk shows, I make people feel relaxed and make them happy. It is one of my unique traits. I have also been told that I laugh a lot. Even when we are treating human angle stories, I still find a way to bring out the fun in it.”
