“In many ways, my career has come full circle. I started out at Hot96, 13 years ago. I was a rookie. New to radio and to media in general. I kept my head down, learned the ropes, put in the work.

Let’s get you home after your long day! Starting this Monday, 15th Apr,” she wrote.
Okwara will replace Annitah Raey, who will now host, Sizzle on Hot, a programme that airs Monday to Friday from 10 pm to 1 am.
“Well well you know am not one to censor anything… And now I get an amazing chance to talk it as it is. No sugar coating… It’s gonna be sizzling hot… See you on Monday ,” she wrote in a post on Instagram.
Okwara has also previously worked at Nation Media Group as a radio talk show producer and later joined NTV where she started the NTV This Morning Show. He later moved to KTN.
