Without doubts, Raymond Ayuba has in one way or the other put smiles on the faces of every listener of his birthday show on Hot 99.5 FM Owerri, with his unique way of presentation.


With Ayuba behind the microphone every morning, I always wished that my birthday could be celebrated every month, at least for the sake of the ‘bell of blessings and whistle of prosperity’

Imo Sate Based Artistes (ISBA) did not miss a thing by honouring the talented radio presenter on August 19, 2012 at Ibari Ogwa Village, Owerri Imo State and for all that attended the event, I carefully chose these 17 comments and wishes for the celebrant in the event which had previously seen Jude Ajero (Man of the Moment) of Orient FM Owerri and Engr. Bruno (A highlife artistes/producer) bagging the same award.

Below are the comments and wishes as well as Raymond Ayuba’s response after the event.

It has been fun upon fun today and I’m so happy I didn’t miss this event. Ayuba is a great guy and I see going higher than this in future.

Raymond Ayuba is a great guy and a good friend. I’ve know him way back in Ray Power, AIT in Lagos.We also worked together at Wazobia Fm and Cool FM at Port Harcourt.

This event shows that Imo people appreciate good things and they are not tribalistic. Imolites have gone a long way to show how they appreciate Ayuba and this show that the state is ready to go a long way in entertainment.

I wish Ayuba every good thing and see more of this for him.

E-Sure, Music Libriarian of Hot 99.5 FM Owerri

Ayuba is blessed with voice and talent to thrill. I believe that what ISBA has done today is to give him that ‘License to thrill’ and I believe he can handle it.

I hope to see Ayuba celebrated nationally and internationally soon. I wish him peace and love behind the microphone.

It is not easy for a whole state to come out to celebrate one man. It shows he has done so much to deserve what ever honour that is being given to him today.

I starts my day with Ayuba on the radio and he has really done well generally and deserves to be honoured today.

I know he will surely do more because of this award and I pray God to see him through the journey.

Responding after the event, Raymond Ayuba said “ At a point, all that I could think of was going back and leaving this town because I keep telling myself that nothing is happening here.

It has been all about the money, but at a point, I prefer how Owerri is handling me.

This award looks like a magical trap, and for all I know, it is working very well.

I see people so happy because of what I do, because of the Chinese that I speak and other things that I don’t even know.

As long as an entire family, an entire population has appreciated what I do, it’s like adding more gas to my tank and I’m speechless as well as feeling on top of the world.

I promise Owerri that as long as I live, I will never forget this day.

I love it here and I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and won’t let this town down.”
