The last two months of 2017 were quite long and challenging for us as prime radio, it all began in February when prime radio was nominated for the radio and tv awards 2017 in the faith based radio nominations.
We thank God four of our programs were nominated which are Olukya in the category of best morning program, Olunaku lwo as the best mid morning program, Akayisanyo for best evening drive program and Egwanga Lyo for outstanding talk show program and finally prime radio as a station for religious radio station of the year.
It wasn’t an easy journey since these awards included voting by fans and well wishers. Nonetheless, God went ahead of us, our esteemed audience who we consider a family (prime radio fans) never abandoned us neither, they voted day in day out.
At exactly 12:00 PM on 13th April 2017, the voting platforms were closed; we then had to wait for 14th to find out the results from the awards.
On the slated day, representatives from prime radio found their way to serena hotel in kampala where the awards were taking place.
The awarding exercise went on and on as different personalities and stations won different awards in the different categories.
At last, the awarding ceremony got to the faith based station nominations. according to our representatives who went, they got tensed, anxious and honestly no right word can express what they felt that time.
“it was like I was put in a very big hole far from earth where no one existed, the silence I felt was indescribable” one of those who went said.
The first two categories passed and prime radio got no award but as it is said, God’s timing is always the best and he does his things in a way no man can understand, it got to the next category which was best mid morning program of the year.
Amidst tension and silence, Olunaku lwo was read out as the best midmorning program of the year, It was an answered prayer, if it were for a child, we would say it was a dream come true. The jubilartion was that of a conqueror in Christ Jesus.
“olunaku lwo” airs every Monday to Friday 10:00am to 12:00pm hosted by Omulangira SSimbwa Edward.
Prime radio hereby wants to extend its heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all those who trusted us and went ahead to vote in the different categories, if it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t have made it, to the presenters who mobilized the smooth running of the exercise, God bless you more.
We are grateful to you our audience for your endless support and please continue supporting us whenever we call upon you.
