Everybody has a story to tell, no matter how simple it may be. Valuable life lessons can sometimes even come from the simplest experiences of other people. Learning from them is a reward all by itself, but this is only possible when a story is told the way it should be. This is what broadcaster, marketer, and PR enthusiast, Richard “Ojay” Ojuri, hopes to achieve when getting up close and personal with his interviewees.
Popularly known as Ojay to his close acquaintances, the Nigerian broadcaster who is now based in Prince Georgia, Maryland, is always drawn to popular individuals and exciting events. Ojay believes that he is the life of any party due to his accommodating, warm, and witty character. His ability to connect with people from all walks of life regardless of their age and ethnic origin is something that worked very well for him when he decided to start broadcasting on YouTube.
He recently just discovered that he has an innate skill of being able to bring out interesting stories from people. For some reason, people easily warm up to him. Ojay connects with them on a personal level beyond their music, business, or inspirational success story. For Ojay, getting to know a person on a deeper level is more rewarding than just talking about what is already obvious.
Not many people have a special gift of making another person comfortable in front of a camera. For many broadcast personalities, it takes a lot of training to ask the right questions and make the other person comfortable enough to give honest and relevant answers. All these come naturally to Ojay. He does it with ease and so much confidence because he believes that every person has the right to be heard regardless of the gravity of their life experiences. It is this belief that has made several of his interviewees open up to him to reveal their dreams, aspirations, past challenges, and rare life experiences.
Ojay’s ability to listen without judgment contributes greatly to the confidence of his interviewees. He is able to provide a safe zone for them to share their stories without fear of being misinterpreted nor rejected. He listens with every intention to understand and not just to respond. In doing so, he makes the other person feel important.
The nickname Ojay is derived from his last name, Ojuri. His last name represents his unique origins and the many generations before him that it represents. He intends to carry the name with pride and bring honor to his family by one day becoming an influential figure on different media platforms. One of his immediate goals is to one day become a co-host for a radio program. He sees himself doing interviews for the rest of his life.
With his determination and knack for communication, Richard “Ojay” Ojuri can be expected to become a familiar personality on YouTube and other platforms quite soon.
