A TRUE DIVA!!!   Leave a comment




On the 21st of September 2012 an Abuja based magazine known as men’s room recognized one of Abuja’s finest on air personalities Faith Onyebujoh as a TRUE DIVA; The magazine aims to bring to light the importance of Socially Responsible Investments and highlight the relevance of SRI to the society, the country and to Africa as a whole. A special section of the magazine is focused on celebrating true divas and the host of the midday oasis on cool FM Faith Onyebujoh (Me) was picked as their 1st TRUE DIVA. In an exclusive interview at salamander cafe, I was asked why and how I got into broadcasting, My take on the world of broadcasting so far and some juicy questions about family and the lucky man in The picture … Lol!!! Now, I got your attention right? Well, getting up close and personal with a true diva always is an interesting read, Bet, now, you’re very interested well darling you’ll just have to be patient and wait for the issue to come out.


Anyway, the reason am putting up this post is, this very honorable recognition got me thinking who really is a true diva? we know the original definition of a diva as being a female opera singer. Time Magazine observed in its October 21, 2002 issue: “By definition, a diva is was originally used for great female opera singers, almost always sopranos. Often today “diva” is used to describe any extremely independent and wildly talented woman. Naturally the term still applies to the classical arts. But I think being a DIVA is about  defining what you want to be and how you want to be perceived and then working to make yourself that way. You don’t have to follow some set of rules, dress one particular way, or where you hair one way. That’s not what being a diva is all about.

Now, If you want to be that stuck up person that when you walk in the room all the women are jealous and all the men are speechless- then hey, be my guest and find out what you need to do to be that person. Personally, I want to be strong, successful, pretty, fashionable, articulate, and fun to be around.

YOU define what you want to be. Don’t be guided by famous people, or others. Really sit down and think about what you want to be/how you want to be, and then come up with a strategy to do that. Even if you just come up with a starting point, Please start! its also recommended you get rid of that bad habit that you have. You’ll feel accomplished and it will compel you to do more to better yourself and your situation.

So, simply put I would say being a DIVA is Defining yourself and standing out doing it. Appearance can easily be changed, but what truly makes a Diva comes from within and any real modification you want to make will also have to come from within.

Quick question:

Do you think the word “DIVA” has more of a good or bad rep these days?
