A BRILLIANT YOUNG LADY, GIVING EVERYTHING TO THE BROADCASTING INDUSTRY
I knew Cordelia OKPEI in the early 80s in Benin City as a young presenter at the then Bendel Broadcasting Service (BBS).
Her father, late Chief Charles OKPEI was a star presenter and producer and did work closely with top flight presenters and newscasters like Newman Okoh, Patrick Umukoro Okoh and Evelyn Atubeh.
CORDELIA was the young host of the popular radio programme “From me to you” and suddenly became a household name at a tender age and as a junior at Emotan College in Benin City. She started broadcasting at the age of 10.
She improved her skills consistently and after bagging a degree in English and Literature at the famous University of Benin (UNIBEN), the young lady moved to Lagos for greener pastures in 1998.
Cordelia soon became a toast on air and rose through the ranks to become the incumbent General Manager of METRO 97.7 FM, a subsidiary of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN).
She has won several Awards for her enviable contributions to the growth of the broadcasting industry in Nigeria.
Presenter, producer, Content Provider and Trainer, Cordelia OKPEI’s rising profile in the broadcasting industry is as a result of her consistent training at home and abroad, dedication and love for country.
Cordelia is an Isoko by tribe, a proud daughter of a professional broadcaster and presenter and a shinning star from Delta State in the South-South region of Nigeria.
I present to you, the AMAZON of the broadcasting industry in Nigeria and GOLDEN VOICE on Radio, Cordelia Okpei.
