Nigeria female hip-hop singer and song writer, Angela Chioma John popularly known as Annjay
has heaped praises on the newly
appointed Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum
Coporation (NNPC) Chief Dr. Ibe Emmanuel Kachikwu.
Annjay who was a journalist with Hints
Magazine owned by the new NNPC boss,
Dr Kachikwu before switching to music took to
her social media network to extol the virtues of her ex-boss.
Unknown to many, Kachikwu’s media empire
include Hello Nigeria, Complete Fashion, Beauty Box, Hints magazine
among others. Under him, some great journalist cut their teeth in his
empire. Some of them include Kayode Ajala, Toni Kan and Reuben Abati,
former Special Adviser to Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Annjay revealed that, “I had to congratulate my great boss publicly and urged
everyone that I know to celebrate a true champion and Hero. Indeed, Dr.
Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu is a man with a very big heart. During my early
years in journalism, he gave me an opportunity to work in his
organization though I was still a teenager. The chance that was given to
me has taken me to so many places that I can’t imagine. That
inspiration is the springboard for all the things that I am doing today.
That I am recognized today was because of the chances that he gave to
people like me. When some of my mates where busy jumping from fence to
fence, I was given a platform to realize my dream which I seized
graciously. I say God bless you boss, mentor and father.”
