Met up with Agatha of the TV Talk Show, Inside Out, at her office and after the matter she asked us to meet on was sorted, decided to start off with her as the first subject of a new series on my blog titled the bold, the cool & the beautiful. In the series, I'll be talking to the literatti, the glitteratti and all the other rattis I come across from time to time.

Inside Out with Agatha.

Your middle name?
Uyor (means joy in Ebu Language, Delta State)

Where will you be in 10 years?
I have no idea. (thinks) Richer, happier, Inside Out will be international, my son will be out of University, my daughter will be in University, I’ll be content with life, hopefully where ever I find myself is where I’ll want to be.

Do you believe in true love?
(laughs) It's very difficult to find but it’s there. Once in a green moon, people find their soul mates.

Your hope for Nigeria?
I believe in Nigeria. I can’t live anywhere else, this is home. I pray for leaders that love Nigeria more than themselves, that put service above self.

Laspapi asked Agatha to play words and associations:

Nigeria?……………….Blessed

Love?…………….God

Marriage?……………Wahala! (Trouble)

Laspapi?…………….Eccentric, rubbish, stubborn.

If you weren’t into TV, what would you be doing?
Banking or some other serious profession

Favourite Perfume?
Beautiful-Estee Lauder

Who do you look up to?
God.

Favourite Holiday Destination?
The Seychelles, even though I haven’t been there yet. Saw pictures of my sister’s visit.

Favourite Musician?
I have a wide range.

Last book read?
“Yellow, Yellow” by Kaine Agary (pronounced (kaini)

A word for posterity?
Life is short, death is short. Its not how long but how well.

Never heard of Agatha and "Inside Out", Storm? This July, she'd have been on TV for 10 years. She shows on 15 stations nationwide.
