…As Edmund Obilo Exits Splash FM
Reports confirm that Edmund Obilo has resigned from the popular radio station Splash FM.
Obilo, who was one of the pioneer on-air personalities at the wave making broadcasting outfit finally ‘agreed to disagree’ to continue rendering his services to the High Chief Adebayo Akande-owned outfit early this afternoon after what sources called a ‘valedictory meeting’.
Signs that things were not well with Edmund and the owner of Splash FM started showing as far back as two years ago, we gathered. The situation finally escalated on Saturday, June 11 when Governor Abiola Ajimobi was at the station to be part of Edmund Obilo’s popular ‘Voices’ programme and Obilo was nowhere to be found!
The governor, who apparently had been invited to the station by the youthful Edmund was livid with anger. When he was officially informed that Obilo would not be ‘showing face’ or making any kind of appearance, Ajimobi, who was oblivious of the internal politics going on announced on air that
“Obilo should be here. He is instrumental to my being here. That I am here and he is not here is a sign of disrespect to me and my office.”
Our sources informed us that Obilo resigned a day before the Saturday programme. This development was triggered, apparently by the ‘frosty relationship’ Edmund had with the daughter of the proprietor of the station, Bisi.
It is said that Edmund might be headed for Fresh FM, owned by Music Ace Yinka Ayefele.
