They are both household names in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and the commercial city of Lagos. Radio listeners in the two cities and the ‘Garden City’, Port Harcourt, Rivers State will readily confirm that Bigmo and Willy Willy who are On-Air Personalities with Wazobia FM are as popular as the Nigerian currency.
Bigmo whose real name is Moses Nwokedi, hails from Nkpologwu in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, while Willy Willy, real name, Stella Anulika Nwosu, is from Umudioka in Awka South Local Government Area of the state.
Last December, the duo tied the nuptial knot in a crowd-pulling ceremony in Abuja.
Checks by Abuja Metro revealed that their love story started in January 2011 when they met at Wazobia FM, Lagos before their postings to Abuja branch of the radio station alongside ‘Expensive’ and ‘Lady G’ later that year.
Coincidentally, Willy Willy was the first presenter in Wazobia FM, Lagos to show Bigmo how to man the console in the studio and the former melted for the latter at first sight. Willy Willy was later reported to have confessed that she liked Bigmo from the first day she set eyes on him and that made them become friends. But they did not know that it was going to be “for better-for worse” kind of friendship. The relationship blossomed for about five years before they took the bold step to tie the nuptial knot last December.
The two on- air pidgin English specialists are fun personified and it is beyond doubt that living under the same roof, there would never be a dull moment. The beauty of their union is that they share certain qualities, and whatever the bubbling Willy Willy and the somewhat reserved Bigmo lack, the other is sure to complement.
Bigmo, who admitted that he is slightly on the reserved side, however, noted, “I can be a handful and pull surprises when least expected.”
The couple shares a passion for radio, which they perceive as a platform to touch and enrich lives daily through their popular shows. Bigmo is on air Monday-Friday (5am-10am), with “Una Wake up show” and on Sundays (12 noon-6pm) with “Sunday Groove Show”, while Willy Willy comes on air Monday-Friday (10am-2pm) with “Oga Madam Office” and on Saturdays (12 noon-6pm) with “Make We Talk Am Show”. It is obvious that the couple virtually live in the studio.
So, with the kind of ‘talk talk’ both do, are they expecting a talk-talk pikin?
Their quick reply was, “Na God dey give pikin”, and if their child begins to show interest in ‘talk talk’ business, “we will help groom him or her accordingly”, as parents.
If the marriage of Willy Willy and Bigmo came to many as a surprise, even the newly-wed said, “E still be us like film trick”. We at Abuja Metro wish them a blissful marriage.
