BN Bytes: BBA Amplified Winner Karen Igho gets new Gig as an On-Air-Personality for Naija FM



After being declared c0-winner of the hit reality show Big Brother Africa Amplified in 2011 and taking home a whooping sum of $ 200,000, the ever outspoken Miss Karen Igho has successfully managed to stay in the public eye by hosting events and gracing numerous red carpet events most recently the Complete Fashion Style Night.

Proving that she doesn’t want to be known only for her Big Brother fame, Karen who clocked a year older in April,  has officially been announced as the newest addition to the indigenous Lagos radio station Naija FM 102.7.

Speaking on her new career venture, the elated star who will be joining a host of other talented on-air personalities at the 24 hour radio station including Lady J, Ushbebe, Sam, Naija Babe and Ifektive, graciously expressed joy and gratitude for the opportunity, saying “You know I’m not a presenter but I’m going to do my best. I’m also going to put in my 100% for people to enjoy and l hope listeners would enjoy the show!’’.

Karen who is fluent in Hausa, Urhobo and English also added that she trusts the job would be easy, as speaking “Pidgin English” is fun for her.

She will join Lagos State University Theatre Arts Graduate/Naija FM on-air-personality Ifektive to host Wetin Dey every day of the week from 10 PM – 1 AM.

A big congrats to Karen. I will be listening, hope you will too. From reality star to presenter/host to an on-air-personality, hmm, what’s next? An album! We can’t wait to see what more Karen has in store for all us in 2012.
