I have no time for wacky songs – Shine of Rainbow FM

There is no dull moment with the black, bold and beautiful Shine of Rainbow FM in Nigeria. She is cheerful and sweet; pleasant; delightful; gracious and polite, but she knows her onions.

Please, meet the sweetest Nigerian MC in her own words.

My full names are Anino Judy Shine Begho, but a lot of people prefer to call me Shine because it’s easy to remember and it’s unique.

I hail from Warri, Delta State in the south-south region of Nigeria. I majored in mass communication in the university. I have contested in beauty pageants and modeled since I turned 18 and I have also been a professional dancer, but now I do it for fun and also as a form of exercise to keep fit.

I love music and since I graduated from the university in 2007, I’ve been in the media/entertainment industry. I started as a TV presenter and then moved to radio as a presenter too but alongside I host and mc events and parties. I also do voice over recordings for radio and TV jingles/promos. But in the mist of all these I try as much as possible to rest , have fun with family and friends, travel and do all the fun things I dreamt of as a kid.

I don’t like and I don’t play wacky songs on my radio show on Rainbow FM. That is why I don’t ask or collect any cash or gifts from artistes to play their songs or interview them. If your music is good enough then I will broadcast it gratis. I believe in merit.

The 10 Most Expensive Cities in Nigeria

The mega city of Lagos tops the list of the most expensive cities in Nigeria, because of the high cost of living in the commercial capital of the most populous country in Africa. Lagos is followed by Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory. and Port Harcourt, the oil rich capital of Rivers State.

What makes Lagos and the other capital cities expensive are the exorbitant rents for accommodation, overpriced real estate, expensive hotels and inflation caused by the daily influx of both local and international migrants and expatriates.

Lagos, the largest city in sub-Saharan Africa, can boast of several exotic beaches and five star hotels and ritzy night life charged by the hottest music stars like King Sunny Adé, Fela Kuti the first son of the legendary king of Afrobeat Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Lagbaja, the masked one and the racy new Hip-Hop, Rap and Hip life stars like Tuface Idibia, D’bange, MI, Face, Ruggedman and many other upcoming Turks of the hyperactive Nigerian music scene and of course Lagos is the home of Nollywood, the third largest movie industry in the world. The spate of kidnappings of both foreign and local oil workers in the volatile cities of the Niger Delta drove many of them to relocate to the safe haven of Lagos where majority of the diplomatic community prefer to stay. The residents are competitive in the rat race with lusts for the luxuries of ostentatious lifestyles copied from Western nations. The hotels charge more than even many five star hotels in New York, Paris and London and renting a condo or an apartment can cost $30, 000 or more a year and buying one can cost you over a million dollars in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki.
