Wazobia FM CEO reminisces on MARKETING EDGE award

Far from the limelight, then this award feels like validation... Serge


Two months after MARKETING EDGE held its 2021 edition of Marketing Stakeholders Summit and Brands and Advertising Awards of Excellence, some of the awardees are still basking in the euphoria of the recognition bestowed on them for hard and excellence.

Serge Noujaim, the Chief Executive Officer of Cool FM, Wazobia FM, Nigeria Info FM and Arewa Radio, in his social media platform, has proudly reflected on the prestigious awards that got him the “Outstanding Media CEO of the Year” category while appreciating the leading advertising brand focused magazine for their uncommon recognition.

His words: “I usually get my yearly “Father of the Year” or “Husband of the Year” award from my wife and 2 girls, and that is all I need in life really. But when you think of all the hurdles and obstacles we had to overcome as a team and in the shadows, far from the limelight, then this award feels like validation. But I am not one for the spotlight. I can come out once in a while and flex but that is just the business environment dragging me into it!

So thank you @marketingedgeonline for the award. It is not taken for granted. The award reads my name. But the story goes deeper. This is not about me. This is about my TEAM. From the believers to none believers that eventually became believers. This one is for the silent operators who get things done day in day out. Who believe that there are no shortcuts in life, in work. This one is for the men and women that have stood by me in the good times and in the bad times. This one is for the haters and envious, thank you for giving me the motivation to go higher. Most importantly, this one is for our listeners, the radio addicts who make this job the greatest in the world .Love to all.”

Members of the Wazobiafm Lagos, the Ogbonge station team, has proudly congratulated and commended their leader for working so hard, adding that, he deserves more, afterall, whom the cap fits, they say, let him wear it.“If pipu for zanga dey do well, you salute the chief  As @marketingedgeonline see say our CEO @sergenoujaim dey do wella, dem sharply award am “Outstanding Media CEO of the Year”.
