This 32 year old native of Omu Ijebu, Odogbolu in Ogun State is a graduate of Theatre Arts from the prestigious University of Ibadan, Oyo State and he further served his nation for a year at the Delta State Council for Arts and Culture. Sinmi is not just a presenter but also an Actor. He did not set out to be a presenter on radio but one thing will always lead to another and It is always cool when we just be in the moment of any transition we might be going through...He explains that every effort is going into pushing through as an actor, tugging at various ropes and hopefully the breakthrough will come.
Sinmi described his dad as a disciplinarian growing up...they were never allowed outside of the house and he misses his late sister who died of a heart disease at age 10. He adds that he misses the innocence of his childhood where he did not have a care in the world. This things certainly shaped his current personae as he aspires to be closer to God, be a great husband and father to his wife and children. He also wants to be an inspiration to many presenters and actors and generally improve upon himself as an artiste.

Kelvin did not just put himself in this position to be where he is today, As a child, the traits of being an entertainer was extremely reflected while residing at CBN Estate, Satellite Town, Lagos; he was present at every birthday party, invited or not invited, he would win the dance competitions and take home prizes, he knew almost every family and had stories to say about them. Perhaps. that should have been a revelation that he was born for the media...He further shared some funny memories like locking up people in the elevators, deflating Car tyres, ringing door bells and running away..the excitement of growing up in Lagos was awesome for him.
The job of an On Air Personality is quite tasking and Kelvin also has his challenges which includes thinking of ideas and planning his shows and that is why you will always see him with a pen and a note pad...and being an observant person, he also gets ideas from his environment. He further says the job demands being proactive, creative, very engaging and most importantly, one must be able to appeal to several kinds of people all at the same time.
Kelvin says his mentors are quite few because they inspire him in specific ways; He listened to Dan Foster while growing up and It must be a delight for anyone to meet and work with such a talent again. He also mentioned the Late Chaz B, who was a huge source of inspiration to him and also helping people out with all kinds of issues on the show and the third personality is Daddy Freeze as described by Kelvin, He likes his tenacity. Unwavering confidence behind the microphone, style and opinions.
If given the chance of leadership, Kelvin says he will fight for the good course of Journalists in Nigeria because they risk their lives in sourcing for information and they go back home with little or nothing in their pockets..He adds that the industry is getting better but there is always room for improvement. However, he wants to be remembered for his contribution to the upliftment of broadcast journalism in Nigeria; From anchoring shows that enlighten people to creating awareness about certain societal issues and being a voice for the 'voiceless'.

Ariyike Oladipo is one Television Professional whose works are very detailed; from sound, screenplay and the stars used in her production and grabbing the Best Tv Drama Series for 'Daddy's Girls' is no surprise...hard work surely pays and that also applies to Oluseyi Amuwa for his effort on 'A Day with Death' which won Best Short Film. One African Woman whose works have always spoken professionalism is Shirley Frimpong-Manso...She also grabbed the Best Picture Editor for the movie, 'Rebecca'...Another creative man and Director like Shirley is Akin Omotosho, He won Best Director for 'Tell Me Sweet Something' and Best Documentary went to Remi Vaughn-Richards for 'Faaji Agba'.
I am particularly thrilled, happy and full of joy for Funke Akindele and Folarin Falana also known as Falz for filling our lives with unending humor every week on Television...All that did not go to waste as they both grabbed Best Actress and Actor in a Comedy Series, Jenifa. This edition has been described by some people as highly motivational because most of the winners are very deserving due to effort that went into their various production...The same applies to Chidozie 'Sambasa' Nzeribe who won Best Actor in a Supporting role in 'A Soldier's Story' and Tubosun Aiyedun who won Best Actress in a Supporting role in 'Before 30'.
Can the night pass by without Genevieve Nnaji grabbing one award...? I guess the brand she represents that happens to be a major sponsor of the awards might not be happy with it...and so, It was a lucky night as her movie, Road To Yesterday grabbed the Best West African Movie...If you ask me, I will say Its a good one because Its simply close to saying Its the best movie in Africa...
Nollywood Actress, Stephanie Linus who happens to be in the league of Directors now had a fulfilled night as her movie, Dry grabbed the Best Overall Movie and Best Costume Design.
As usual, you cannot witness such a high profile event as this without not witnessing some flaws, drama and surprises...My drama of the Night among the Red Carpet Hosts would have to be Actress and Comedienne, Helen Paul...Her hair was drama personified...more like a fairy-tale African granny. Eku Edowor went into the Shaolin Temple again just like last year..The awkward speech of the night went to Genevieve Nnaji..She would have just said thank you or simply allow her co partners to do the talking...
The musical performances were on point...From Yemi Alade, Flavour to Zonke from South Africa, It was outstanding and please, I would love to see more promotion for Salvador, A Comedian from Uganda..He killed it for me and My best dressed celebrities would be Adesuwa Etomi, Anna Banner and Funke Akindele while My worst dressed Celeb would be Actress, Ini Edo..Do not ask me why..ok..the designers would have done away with the train...
