Odegbami described the new radio station as the fruit of hard work, patriotism and commitment.
Former Nigeria National Football Team Captain Segun Odegbami has officially launched a new radio station in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Odegbami Radio 103.7 FM Eagles 7 Sports is located in the Panseke Ward of Abeokuta Metropolis.
The football legend, who is not new to the media space, described the new radio station as the fruit of hard work, patriotism and commitment.
According to the winner of the CAN 1980, the new sports radio Eagles 7 will promote Afrocentrism among others, reflecting the dream and expectations of all Africans and people of African descent everywhere in the world.
He said: “Primarily on Eagles 7 Sports radio, we will explore the global world of sport through coverage of some of the world’s biggest sporting events.
“The station brand is coined after the biggest brand in Nigeria; the Super Eagles and personally my number as a member and captain of the Nigeria national team was seven, so math seven.”
“Therefore, Eagles 7 Sports Radio is a true Nigerian brand; the product of hard work, perseverance, commitment, passion, discipline, dedication, success and being truly African.”
“The station shall promote Afrocentrism reflecting the dream and expectations of all Africans and people of African descent everywhere
“It will produce and promote Black and African music, art, culture, entertainment, business and other interests, not exclusively, but in friendly corroboration with the rest of the world.”
Odegbami, who until then has been a columnist in several national dailies as well as a television presenter and producer, appealed for support in his new venture into broadcasting
“As we begin this exciting journey today, I ask for the support of all fans, family, friends, subscribers, young people, corporate sponsors, product service providers and the public.
“Together we can make this one a mark of pride for all of us,” said the former candidate for governor of Ogun State.
Brila FM in Lagos and Prime Sports Radio, Enugu, were until now the only all-sports radio stations in Nigeria.
