Across Nigeria especially his Oyo State base, Alhaji Oriyomi Hamzat is well reputed as a leading pillar and unwavering advocate and icon of truth, social justice, rights activism and love for the masses orchestrated through broadcast journalism and philanthropy.

His highly influential radio station, Agidigbo FM which has taken Nigeria by Storm rules the airways with millions of followers across the globe who tune in and participate in its popular call-in Programmes.


Fast rising Singer, Okiki Bright was one of the prominent Nigerians who graced the maiden edition of the Oriyomi Hamzat Fam Initiative (Alhaji Hamzat’s fans club) event at the Lekan Salami Stadium in Ibadan, Oyo State on Thursday.




The highly colorful event which had thousands of attendees including Hamzat’s fans and others filling up the massive stadium to capacity also had many dignitaries, eminent Nigerians and top entertainers including former Chief Justice of Oyo State, Fuji king, Alhaji Saheed Osupa, popular comic actor Muyiwa Adegoke aka Londoner and numerous others.

An highpoint of the special event was the inauguration of the executive council of the Hamzat fans club at state, zonal and local government levels across the state.

Speaking at the event, Okiki Bright who was besieged by fans as he made his way into the VIP section expressed delight at the privilege of being selected among top entertainment icons including King Saheed Osupa to grace the event.

He urged his fans to watch out for his forthcoming album tagged “AMBITION” billed to be released in October which also promote didactic themes of social justice, fairness, hardwork, betrayal and pursuit of happiness.

The youthful singer said the release of “Ambition,” a fusion of traditional Fuji and contemporary music promises to leave an indelible mark on the Nigerian music scene.

Bright added that, “He was particularly happy to attend the event because his personal views about life aligns with the organiser, Alhaji Oriyomi Hamzat’s philosophy of social justice, truth and equity as necessary pillars for building a peaceful, happy and thriving society where people can enjoy life to the fullest and maximize their potentials.”

In Okiki Bright, Nigeria finds a different breed of Fuji musician today, reminiscent of the late Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. His musical journey encompasses the rich heritage of Fuji music, blended seamlessly with contemporary beats.

Much like Barrister, Okiki Bright’s compositions carry didactic messages, weaving tales of morals and vicissitudes deeply rooted in Yoruba culture and lores. What sets him apart is his ability to present these cultural narratives on danceable modern rhythms with a sweet melodious voice, making his music not just an auditory delight but a cultural experience.

While thanking the thousands of attendees at the event, Alhaji Hamzat, who was beaming with smiles and walking freely among the crowd said his love for the masses and his personal joy in enthronement of truth, justice and fairness drive all his activities including broadcast for social justice and philanthropy, thanking his sponsors and donors and promising never to relent in his pursuits.

Hamzat, a down to earth but no nonsense veteran presenter adored especially by grassroots women and his radio station feature special programmes solely dedicated to investigating cases of oppression, intimidation, victimisation, rape, murder and all sorts of malfeasance.

The suspects are exposed on air and justice is pursued through collaboration with law enforcement agencies and necessary government officials.

The recent conviction of Alhaji Rahman Adedoyin over the gruesome murder of a post graduate student at the Obafemi Awolowo University who lodged at his hotel, could be credited to Hamzat and his Agidigbo FM which prominently exposed the suspects while they tried in vain to sweep the horrible crime under the carpet.
