What Do You Think About Wazobia Fm And Cool Fm?

The first time I listened to cool fm I loved the station.

But, suddenly some "FAKE" oyinbo's joined them and now I hate cool fm with a passion.

Then came wazobia fm with Mashe and Yo yo yo.

I LOVE THIS STATION because they are "real" unlike the fake people in cool fm.

About being linked, there is definite proof in Port harcourt.

Whenever there is power outage and wazobia fm falls silent, i notice that cool fm is also off. And they come back on at the same time.

I've started listening out to see if the guys that broadcast in the morning at cool fm find their voice on wazobia in the afternoon.

Good business sense, if you ask me though.

It's as if you guys are yet to know both stations belong to the same owner(cool fm and wazobia)Wazobia was just to exhibit more of african and naija context.Since dan had left cool fm,the only prog. i listen to is sports express.Guys stop arguing about which 1 is best.

i think wazobia fm is tight!! but i hear rumors that they are linked to cool fm. well, even if they are, they shouldn't make the same mistake cool did - which is why they're now 'advert fm'.

while we're on the subject, can someone please throw dotun away? the guy must be tone deaf what with the kinda music he plays. the afrotropical hour in the morning is enough to put me in a foul mood, yet ejike can find lovely african tracks to play. it's almost as though dotun selects his music from dan foster's 'flushed' songs!!! what's up with that?

I like cool fm. Wazobia fm plays all kind of junk, I don't like that. I only flick through wazobia when rhythm and cool fm are running ads. I must say it's annoying when some cool fm presenters murk/bastardize names, I feel like murking them as well.

Brilla still exists - 88.9

And, for those of you who don't know, Wazobia is really new, and it's on 95.1, and I still remember when the put up ads on some other radio stations when they were starting up for people who had a good command of English and one Nigerian language.

It is possible, when you like your country so much you have unreasonable hatred for others. And I think some people are hating on those accents, probably because they can't pull them off the way those presenters do. I didn't say no names

His name is Freeze. And he identifies with Ibadan always. ALWAYS. Not that I like him; he passed a comment one day that put me off, and I stopped liking him since them. But we have to tell the truth.

Hi,

Wazobia Fm with Yo Yo Yo is cool

I think it is ok for every Nigerian

When I really want to listen to some Naija music or hear pidgin and really feel at home with my surroundings I listen to Wazobia more over I like Yo

But COOL FM is the bomb

I've been listening to cool fm since like forever

And I want to tell u, U sure are missing a lot

Let us face fact.

Dan is the only Oyibo and Dan tries as much as he can to pronounce Nigerian names well

You should know that it is really difficult for him but he does

Every other presenter pronounces the names well,

I bet there are some Nigerian names u cannot really pronounce well.

24/7 it is cool fm baby

From Dan to Freeze, to Ejike to Manny, to Gbemi to Chidinma to Oliseh, to Vickky name it

Bros u dey miss.

Cool Fm brightens my day from Morn to night

If u like Wazobia Fm like I said it is your choice but do not beef Cool,

Cool plays my kind of music - Naija, Rock, Pop, Hip HOp, blues, name it.

Change ur mind it is Cool Fm baby 96.9

You're right. You can never be too proud of your country.

Can someone really be overzealous about his being proud to be a citizen of a country? I think not.

For your information I do not think wazobia fm is as old as cool fm. But don't you think whoever set up the station also noticed the obvious? In fact I am informed that wzobia fm belongs to cool fm (i do not know). But if it does then it means they themselves realized the "dysfunction" in their broadcast.

I still believe we should be "real". A lot of these guys even struggle with the fake accents.

Remember we are in Nigeria, they are speaking to predominantly Nigerians and it just doesn't work.

Have you had the priviledge of listening to seasoned broadcasters like Sunny Irabor and co? They always talk about when they were in training how they had to practice correct pronunciation of both Nigerian and foreign names.

Our affinity for the western way of doing things has robbed us of our very existence.

Do these guys ever go for training? Or thy just jump into the studio and begin to go on and on.

Or is it the Dan Forster factor? Even the man does his best to be a "Nigerian".

Are you one of them in cool fm?

Anyway, one man meat is another's poison.

I do not think you should have apologies about the way you feel about Cool FM. There's absolutely nothing wrong with I-am-Nigerian-and-proudly so people, except that sometimes, they're overzealous. And, I'm not ashamed of Nigeria; I would wear a green-white-green shirt anywhere and anyday and anytime.

But you see, I do not agree when you say they pronounce Nigerian names like they've never heard them pronounced before. Their English isn't your average Nigerian accent, but when they pronounce Yoruba names especially (see, most of them are Yoruba), it stands out. Because they actually take a break from those accents. You probably don't listen well enough to take not of that, or you've already had it imprinted on your mind that they pronounce in unappealing ways, and you hear exactly what you want to hear.

And, beside the point, don't shout. It's quite nauseating.

I HAVE NO APOLOGIES FOR THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT COOL FM.

FOR GOD'S SAKE DON'T YOU GET SICK WHEN FELLOW NIGERIANS (YORUBA'S, IBO'S AND CO.) PRONOUNCE NIGERIAN NAME AS THOUGH THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD TH NAMES PRONOUNCED BEFORE.

IF YOU ARE NOT, , WELL I AM AND I BELIEVE I SPEAK FOR A MILLION OTHER NIGERIANS.

And what in the world if I may ask you is wrong with "I-am-Nigerian-and-proudly-so people"?

Are you one of those who are ashamed to be identified as a Nigerian?

Well, I AM NOT!!

Let me tell you why you hate Cool FM now. You're one of the I-am-Nigerian-and-proudly-so people, so, for one thing, the Wazobia name really gets to you. Then you listen to Cool FM and you hear all the foreign music and foreign accents in their presenters and it puts you off.

I LOVE Cool FM. They're one of the best down here, if not the best.
