Faith Adodo captured by ITV NEWS Benin City

Back in 2015, I collaborated with Kofi to launch the first Afro-Gala Fashion event in the city. I received a call from Kofi while I was just stepping out of my health science lecture. He told me a talk show host was interested to cover my story. I was like me, really me. Later that week, I got a personal phone call from Faith. I expected to just be a Hello when you free to come to the studio for live tapping. Fortunately, we spent nearly 2 hours exchanging information, future goals, studies. Her motivation and encouragement on and off camera were very genuine. I am blessed to have her as a mentor and someone I can personally call auntie. Please, help me welcome the gorgeous lady of the hour who is soon to be Doctor, my dearest Auntie FAITH ADODO.

What is the inspiration behind your brand “The Prestigious Talk Show”?

The name has already said it all, “prestigious” as you know is something that is placed in high esteemed, something that is respected and admired. The inspiration behind this name depicts the respect I have for chasing my dreams, my passion and my calling, my philosophy in life is that , when you have  a dream or passion for something, you have to cherish what you are called to do ,you have to treasure it and likewise nurture it to grow, you treat that dream like a diamond because diamonds are rare to come by ,, you should know that no matter how difficult it is for your dream to come to reality or manifestation, you have to keep working on it without relenting.

I choose to use the term diamond to illustrate my dreams because diamonds are not easy to come by, so also are dreams, however, we all have dreamt of something we love to do or passionate about of course yes, not everybody can turn their dreams or passions into reality. Turning your dreams into reality is like looking for a diamond of course we all know how difficult it could be to find a diamond , it is not easy to find,so also is your dream it is not easy to turn it into a reality, it takes a lot of courage, patience, support, love, and consistency to turn your dreams into reality. That is my interpretation of what that name represents and that is the reason we are branded as prestigious talk show because the journey has not been easy, however, we are not there yet hopefully by the special grace of God this dream will impact the world positively to the glory of God.

 

 

You are indeed a phenomenal woman both as a Talk Show host/Motivational Speaker and Educator at York University. Can you tell us how has your role as Host or Educator impacted your community?  

 

I have been able to Impact the lives of many positively through my show; through my pedagogical background and also a lot of people have also shared how pivotal the show is and some have shared series of testimony on how our show has helped them in their life path. I will especially place emphasis the area of education, a lot of women, youth and few men can attest to the fact that, I did not just encourage them to go to school I have also helped a lot of them one on one to ensure that they secure admission in other for their lives to be transformed for the best.
