Findings revealed that the radio programme, which is bankrolled by Nigerian Breweries owned Gulder brand of beer, has become a huge success, thus, attracting more fans to Tony Doe's fanbase.

"Well what I do with Tony Doe Media Services is provide cost-effective Voice-Overs for a variety of Radio/TV content, Multi-Media purposes as well as Radio Imaging and Production. I’ve been privileged to voice a number of radio commercials and provide Imaging for stations and DJs, while also hosting independent radio shows," he began.

Continuing, he said, 'Prior to the Ogbonge Man, I provided narration for Biz Connect, a TV Show which aired on LTV/LWT, I  was the demo talent for Heineken’s Open Your City which airs as a Live Show with Chico as host on Classic FM, I created the NBMAwards jingle in 2013, The ICT Olympiad jingle in 2015, a version of Careers24 in 2014, and my favourite project before The Ogbonge Man, had to be The Hepatitis Radio Show which aired in Lagos (City FM) and Abuja (Nigeria Info) in 2014.'

'But I guess the vibe and the language with which the Ogbonge Man was made endeared many to the programme and ultimately, the personality behind the programme,' he concluded.
