SilverBird Should Know Better…

Watching
Nigerian programming is a past time I no longer enjoy (thanks to DSTV and its
foreign influx! Yay!!!). If not for the sake of Xplore and the need for a
relevant change in the movie industry, I wouldn’t involve myself with the film
industry.

So,
in a bid to find something suitable to watch, I tuned to a channel and ol’boy
was I in for an awful surprise.

Channel: SilverBird Television… it’s
about entertainment
Programme: E-Moda!!!
Time: 11-11.30pm
A Topshot Production

When
the programme started, I wasn’t paying rapt attention, as I was doing a couple
of things around but when I had the presenter, Agnes say ‘how are you’ with a
heavy Yoruba ‘h factor,’ accent I knew I had to listen up. I turned up the
volume and proceeded to put myself through 30minutes of obvious torture, which
I hadn’t received in a while.
The
programme was made up of various segments, there was an interview with a
fashion designer (or better still, a tailor), there was the hair and beauty
segment (where the beautician or stylist made the hair up in WAVES! Thought
that style had gone with my mother’s time) and then there was the red carpet
segment.
While
Agnes was obviously very hyper, her style of presenting was very crude, obnoxious
and downright annoying. During the interview segment with the CEO of Rik
designs, Oluwarike Akintunde, Agnes kept on responding, in agreement (only Oprah does that honey and even then, it’s not nice!) she
can nod and do it discreetly, without jumping down the throat of the
interviewee. Her line of questioning didn’t sound like she knew a thing about
fashion or what she was talking about. She asked questions along the line of
“how do you combine fashion faux pax” WHAT!!! That’s clearly in a bid to sound
intelligent and somewhat smart when she could just have said “what
differentiates your pieces from other tailors, erm…designers.”
After
watching the programme for 20minutes, I was appalled! Agnes had mannerisms,
references and statements that were better suited for a local radio station and
when I say local, I don’t mean Radio Lagos. Her language was unprofessional;
she had the ‘h factor’ and asked every guest, “what is your most treasurable
accessory, you can never do without” that’s a mouthful… All said, what went
through my mind, was that SilverBird television should have known better,
especially with their level of experience garnered. Yes, the programme was
produced by Topshot Production and would have paid to have that placement, but
come on!!!
