Beautiful and lovely Jumobi also anchors Wedding Engagement perfectly. Having
created her unique style of presentation and becoming a household name of sort,
Jumobi Omisore was recently nominated for 2017 YOMAFA Award. Speaking on her
nominations she said. “I feel fulfilled and blessed to be among the best. Award always
come with controversy; people criticize my nominations, and believe I don’t worth it.
They believe I should not be nominated alongside other top female broadcaster like
Yemi Ajide, Skin Dudu, Bidemi Olukuewu and Bose Akinremi and others. Let us take
for instance, the MBGN Show goes beyond beauty; something might be beauty in your
eyes and ugly in my own case. I don’t know why people castigate me for being
nominated for YOMAFA Award. I want people to understand that nomination is different
from winning. It is a privilege to be a nominee, it’s also a privilege to be the winner. If
you are nominated and win, it doesn’t mean you are the best. In my own case, I am
nominated as the Best female presenter YOMAFA 2017. This has been raising
dust, people are raising eyebrow and they are saying I am the youngest among the
nominees and in-experienced.
