Some Nigerian influential media personalities also shared their thoughts on the 300+ page book. Some of the “Words on Marble” include:
- The best attitude for an OAP in a new location is to imagine that you are going to war to conquer a new city – Olisa Adibua
- Media work is all about creativity, you can’t sleep your way to the top, if you don’t have it in you, you do not have it! If you are not proactive and dedicated to the profession, you will fizzle out, but if you are focused and you are driven, you will get there without dirt. – Toke Makinwa
- Radio has changed, then, it was about your voice but today, people focus more on your appearance and they are looking out for you on the red carpet. So you have to be able to balance your voice and skills with your looks. – Gbemi Olagbegi
- It is backward thinking to say or think that women in the media are not wife materials. If a woman have a good job, makes her own money, carries herself in a respectful way, I don’t see anything wrong with that. – Toolz O Demuren
