JYDE as he is fondly called grew up in the simple and quiet suburb of Satellite Town in Lagos which set him on the path to being a radio addict as most of his child hood days were spent listening to sports presentations on radio, as he popularly says on air ” If dad wouldn’t let me play football then I would listen to football”

This Hunger and passion for the game he loved so much drove him to On Air analysis of football matches in his 200 level days with the University of Ilorin, starting with Kwara state Broadcasting Corporation (radio kwara). He worked with the radio station as a freelance sports presenter/reporter until his youth service days when he joined the Kogi state Broadcasting Corporation(Radio Kogi), where he fell in love completely with radio broadcasting, and went on to become a full time on air personality. Jide also had stints with privately owned Grace Fm also in Lokoja but it seemed he had unfinished business with Kwara state. Hence his movement back to Ilorin to join the ROYAL FM95.1 Ilorin team and since has not looked back on his quest at dominating the airwaves with his sonorous voice heard not only in sports but also entertainment.

within the country and several NPFL football games around the country. He can be heard on Kwara’s most popular Sports shows: “Sports File (Weekdays 7:30am-8:00am), and Soccer Chat (Saturdays 8am-9am) on Royal FM.

He is married to the beautiful Deborah Babajide and they have a beautiful Daughter, Michelle.
