Kevin Nsochukwu Ejiofor is 85 years today, and we join the hosts to celebrate a life rich in lessons.
Kevin Ejiofor is the quintessential broadcaster.
He can hold masterclasses in journalism, public relations, creative writing and drama, the arts of life, arts qua arts, and broadcasting. Recognitions from global bodies speak to these skills and capabilities.
Boss, mentor, father and ogre at Cadbury Nigeria Plc.
Ejiofor, or simply KNE, has lived a life of nsochukwu.
His life speaks to Sequels and Comebacks.
A younger, beautiful, educated woman became his companion when he lost his wife to the reaper. He got the blessings of sons added to daughters.
When he clocked out of the civil service in the then Anambra State, life connected him to Cadbury Nigeria and an illustrious career in public relations as Corporate Affairs Manager.
He co-founded a radio station in Lagos on his second retirement, then served as a consultant to help others set up successful radio stations in the South East.
In his beloved Enugu, fate brought opportunity and a sequel, where he served as Executive Director, then Acting DG of Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeris, FRCN.
It was reversing the clock more than 60 years to the beginning of his career in the self-same Radio Nigeria.
Nowadays, Mr. Ejiofor blesses the lives of prospective broadcasters by teaching and sharing insights as Registrar of the West Africa Broadcast Media Academy, managing Life In My City Art programme and exhibitions, and boisterously sharing insights and wisdom and bonhomie.
Eighty-five sits well on you, nnam ukwu. Happy birthday, dear KNE.
