Aj Blasts off!

Onatejiro Odudu here but you can call me Aj (you lucky things!) and I am the Blast reporter for Lancashire and believe me, there’s going to be something for everyone on my web pages so make sure you stay logged in...

I’ll be checking out the night life for all you party animals out there, the local artists for all those with an ounce of creativity, if you’re up for a laugh I’ll keep you updated on comedy nights and everything else exciting.

It’s all about me, me, me, me, me!

For someone who’s born and bred in Blackburn I have quite an unusual name (I think it’s rather unique and funky actually).  Well my parents are Nigerian… that’s in Africa for those of you who are like myself and awful at Geography!  I have five brothers and two sisters and we all get on, a major achievement if you ask me!

I don’t mean to sound modest or vain but…Let’s face it, TV needs me, and I can’t help that!  And to be honest, I want and need TV.  So I dream of becoming a radio presenter before stepping into the world of television, as a TV presenter.  Yes, big ambitions to match my big personality but hopefully the Blast scheme will give me a step in the right direction!

I love meeting new people so working with the BBC will definitely enable me to do that, I mean, it already has really as I met a load of wicked people at our training day in Bristol and I can’t wait to catch up with them again.

I love partying.  ‘Work hard play hard’ is definitely a motto I’d vouch for, although admittedly I just prefer to play… not saying that that’s all I do though (wink wink).  Basically, I love my life and live it to the full.  I love my family, I love my friends, and hopefully I’ll get my dream job and love that too!

Hate’s a strong word but I can honestly say that I hate the smell of cigarette and cigar smoke. EEW!  I dislike melon if it’s not in a fruit salad, peas if it’s not with rice and chicken and green salad if it’s not on bread!

So?!  You know what to look out for on my web pages and most importantly, you’ve got the low down on me myself and I… What more do you want?!

P.S. Enjoy my web pages but please ignore all vain and modest comments I come out with…I can’t help it so expect to hear many more!  Haha! xxx

Hello Dear Onatejiro, this is your cousin from Sheffield. I was doing some research on the internet and came across your site.Well done and keep up the good work. If you need any advice you know where to come. I will be visiting Blackburn soon and I am sure you will show me a good time while I am there. Take care and God bless you.
