He indicated that, listeners and audience who contribute to any media programme play a key role to the success of that media entity and must be appreciated.
He explained that celebrities, especially those in the creative arts industry; media, musicians, actors, and all other sectors must understand that they are been sustained by fans who appreciate what they do and therefore, these celebrities must also reciprocate that gesture.
