Shine wakes you early in the morning and ensures you are in the right frame of mind while trying to get the day started with her daily morning show, ‘The Good Morning Nigeria Show,’ which runs from
the 5am through 10am.
Fans do not miss her for too long as she always returns on Sundays with her afternoon show called “chill out zone” from 2pm-7pm. She’s tall, beautiful and likes to be addressed as “Warri girl with the yankee swaggs.” SHINE Begho is an on air personality with one of Nigeria’s leading radio stations, COOLFM.
In this chat, she offers a peek into her latest brainchild tagged ‘SHINE WITH THE STARS.’
WHO EXACTLY IS SHINE?
My full name is Anino Judy Shine Begho . Am an Itsekiri girl from Delta state, Warri to be precise. (A Warri girl with a Yanky swag). Well i’m a fun loving entertaining girl and people usually say “never a dull moment with shine.”
I’m a B.SC holder. I majored in Mass Communication in Madonna University, Okija, Anambra State.
CAREER AS AN O.A.P – HOW DID IT ALL START?
My career as an O.A.P started two weeks after graduation. I started as a TV presenter with Galaxy Television Lagos; then i found radio in 2008 and started doing both; trying to strike a balance. It was funny.
You see me on TV then you hear me on radio at Eko FM Lagos then.
I moved to Abuja and I got a radio job with Hot FM Abuja. I got tired of Abuja. I missed Lagos so I came back and then I joined Classic FM Lagos and then moved to City FM Lagos and then Rainbow FM and then Zoo drums radio, which was an internet radio and now I’m with Cool FM Lagos.
What a journey you would say but believe me, I learn every step of the way; gathering experience every where I found myself.
YOUR MAIDEN EDITION OF “SHINE WITH THE STARTS” – WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND IT?
Shine with the stars is one of my pet projects. I don’t want people to know me for just being a radio personality. I want them to know me also for something else but not just the usual. Something different
but uniquely different because I love doing my things in a unique and different way. A rave has never being done in Nigeria so am happy to say am the first but not just a rave but a celebrity rave. I’m trying
to connect fans with their favorite celebrities in close range; having fun with each other, networking and making dreams come true. So, its a night of hanging out with me, Shine and other celebs under one
roof – Getting our groove on with our fans so we can all relate with one other. Don’t forget its these fans that make us celebs. ‘Shine with the stars celebrity rave’ as you can see my name is attached to it so you know Shine with the stars is me and I’m here to stay. I think big so by God’s grace we going to tour soon from Nigeria to other African countries and then Europe.
HOW WAS IT ACCEPTED?
To God be the glory, It was accepted well. In fact, it was a huge success after the first series, people kept asking when the next series of ‘Shine With the Stars’ celebrity rave would take place.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU INTEND TO MAKE IT HAPPEN?
Shine with the stars will take place every 2 months and of course with themes. The first series was a club rave and now the second series is a celebrity pool rave and am not going to tell you the other themes. You would know when the time comes.
CHALLENGES YOU FACED STAGING THE EVENT?
Hmm…. Challenges… Well, its the usual getting of sponsors, which everyone knows could be very difficult so I had to use funds from my own pocket but you know when you start something new, you have to make
a couple of sacrifices. The sweet thing is that later on these sponsors would be the ones chasing me (Oluwa is involved).
WHEN IS THE NEXT “SHINE WITH THE STARS” HAPPENING?
Well, with God on our side, we’re looking at August 25, 2012 and the venue is BONYOVAGE HOTEL. Victoria island in Lagos. The red carpet opens at 8pm.
