The fashionable lady behind the high profile boutique, Instyle Butik on Toyin street, Ikeja, Lagos, Muky Emelda has perfected arrangements for her celebrity oriented educative programme which debuts on Africa Independent Television soon. And from the look of things, there’s no doubting the fact that the intelligent and highly attractive dame of style has got loads to offer her viewers.
For Muky Emelda, a graduate of Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ), she’s so passionate about what millions of Nigerians are presently going through and as such would want to educate Nigerians on the need to re-position their minds and strive for the best.
According to Muky, the prevailing harsh economic situation in the country have been interpreted in so many ways, a situation that has led various kinds of people engage in all kinds of nefarious activities. “Some people blame their situation on leaders of the economy while others attribute their misfortune to inherited poverty”.
All these and more, she added have had so much negative effect on the fortune of the country. To her, these have equally been responsible for the group of Nigerians that engage in atrocities like robbery, kidnapping and other social vices.
She however maintained that people that have been trapped in these vices could get out of the misconception if only they knew how successful and enviable Nigerians today were able to wade through their tough times. This, indeed are people that merits to be referred to as celebrities.
“This would be a great challenger that would be an encourager to the youths of today”.
Being a celebrity, to me means “You must have gone through difficulties in life and able to surmount the challenges and record success in your chosen career. Such experience has a way of encouraging someone who’s probably facing similar challenges or even different or stiffer difficulties”.
Her passion, in an exclusive chat was driven based on the prevailing trends of economic doldrums and hardship being experienced by Nigerians. “People need encouragements and highly-inspiring stories that could motivate them to forge ahead and mould their vision to be able to pursue their set goals”.
According to Muky, “Difficulties, in itself have reasons for molding and re-sharpening people’s vision for a better tomorrow. We need to learn from it and come out more refined. The subsequent effect of this is that it reshapes our desires and vision and of course, has positive goals and great impact on the society as a whole. And of course, the nation becomes better for it”.
All these and more is what Muky is bringing to viewers on a well-thoughtful programme on a nation’s network through African Independent Television (AIT). Here, she will be featuring great and highly successful Nigerians from various sectors to share their experiences from their struggling days, how they were able to surmount the challenges and how they have been able to manage their successes.
For now, Muky is keeping the title of the programme close to her chest for obvious reasons but arrangements are in top gear to kick off with the programme on AIT.
The programme is being staged under the able supervision of an ex- Daily Times, Prime People, Punch and Publisher of UK-based Empire International Magazine/Safari News Online, Dele Aberuagba. Muky Emelda Igwe will be presenting with Dele Aberuagba as Director.
