Bonny and Brainy, Melody is arguably one of the most entertaining new generation Nigerian radio broadcasters in the system today. Considering her literary proficiency – that alter ego could be described as bluestocking; but there’s more to this lady than meet the eyes. Magically, she’s gradually transforming to a gem. Her persona is indicative of trappings of iconic female broadcasters in this country.
From first glance, Melody Hassan could pass as naïve and quiet but that’s far from her explosive, energetic and entertaining presentation style on her show ‘City Café’ on City 105.1 FM. With eyes for talents, ears for good music with excellent communication skills, her playlist is eclectic. She’s credited with one of the most interestingly unscripted interview session on radio. But how did this trained biologist transformed into an amazing broadcaster? Here’s her story.
