The producer of the show, Rokanmi Orunmuyi who is also the host, is a graduate of Economics from the University of Essex UK with over 12 years of work experience in both the private and public sectors before deciding to pursue her passion for entertainment.

She has identified ignorance as one of the major factors impeding our development as a nation and she hopes to, in her own little way tackle it through knowledge and information sharing that will help to promote personal development thereby improving social welfare.
