Oreka Godis is a British broadcaster who is proud to be a descendant of the Otaro and Ekarabome Royal Dynasty of Ogori, Kogi State, Nigeria. Born to a father who served in the Nigerian military and a mother who worked as a nurse in England and the United States of America, Oreka grew up as a bit of a nomad, living in various parts of Nigeria and England.
Oreka relocated to Nigeria in 2009 to work for The Beat 99.9FM where she co-anchored the biggest breakfast show in Lagos, Nigeria. During her breakfast show, Oreka successfully executed entertaining and informative live radio shows covering politics, entertainment, sports and world news. She hosted ‘Rookies and Dons’ – a weekly British Council program on UK education and lifestyle. Notable guests on the show included a host of Nigerian artistes, corporate bodies, and international acts such as Hakeem Kae Kazim, Isha Sesay, R.Kelly, Sean Paul, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Shondrella Avery.
Knowing how active she is, WeRunThings asked her what she’s been up to since she left The Beat 99.9FM and now…
When I left The Beat 99.9 FM, got hired by NN24 as an anchor and co-executive producer for the channel. They had numerous technical difficulties and during one of those breaks, Toke Makinwa, Tosyn Bucknor and I shot a full season of 3LiveChicks with FlytimeTV. The shoot wrapped in February and since then, I have been working on treatments of pilots for my own TV and radio show as well as gaining more TV production experience.
I (sort of) acted and co-produced a pilot TV series with Victor Sanchez Aghahowa which I’m hoping will make it to TV screens soon. Working with Tatafo HQ (Victor Sanchez Aghahowa) has been most enlightening and I plan to do more work with him and his team going forward. Last weekend, we shot a nice lil’ experimental project called #HowSheLeftMyBrother. Tintin (former Classic FM program director) is starting up his own strictly online radio station (iGrooveRadio) very soon. I can’t give you details about that just yet but I will be doing something there.
There should be a few more announcements from my camp in July when key contracts (*cough* iROKO Partners) have been signed and I can talk about or show you the other things I’m currently working on (terrestrial and cable TV).
