Meet Tokunbo Ajayi, a One-time Legendary Broadcaster at NTA

The Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), was once the darling of millions of Nigerians. Just as people today are enamored with European football league matches, NTA Newscasters were once the most popular stars in the Nigerian Galaxy.

Missing the Network News then was like missing a match between Barcelona and Real Madrid in which Leo Messi scored three spectacular goals. The legendary Tokunbo Ajayi was one of NTA's most seductive newscasters back then.

Tokunbo Ajayi began her broadcasting career at the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), where she was one of the first set of female anchors of the network news, which airs every night at 9 p.m.

At the NTA, she was a force to be reckoned with, serving as a role model for young women interested in working in the electronic media. There's no doubting that she exudes self-assurance, intelligence, and strength in her appearance.

Tokunbo Ajayi's lovely voice was familiar to Nigerians who listened to NTA almost every evening; she enjoyed broadcasting, and newscasting was her specialty. She earned a diploma in mass communication from the University of Lagos.

Olatokunbo Ajayi was a seasoned broadcaster with a well-deserved reputation as a polished professional. On the Nigerian Television Authority's Network News, her deep voice and unusual tomboyish simplicity are frequently remembered. Tokunbo was a one-of-a-kind and highly recognizable media character.

Her NTA story is tragic since she died in London, England in 2000. The news of her death surprised a lot of people. Many individuals have been left perplexed by Tokunbo's death, which came as a shock and was completely unexpected. She was alleged to have died in the United Kingdom while on vacation. Following a frightening encounter at her Abuja home, she was claimed to have arrived in London just a few days before her death.
