Yvonne Okwara is without a doubt one of the best and most talented in the local media industry. The Citizen TV presenter recently shared a video from behind the scenes in the making of prime time news, revealing it wasn’t easy.
‘It’s not been easy for me, I’ve seen light skins get away with murder,’ Yvonne Okwara on being dark-skinned
‘Despite the tough year , I’m glad I still got to keep doing what I love. Thanks be to God for holding me down, I know it’s been tough for many with lost income. May God provide for you all and may 2021 be kinder to us all. This clip is a tribute to all that happens behind the scenes, it looks messy in the background, as in life. But messy backgrounds often give life to beautiful products. Also, it really does take a village to put together such a production. Shout out to studio crew, drivers, reporters, news directors, news editors, cleaners, everyone that works in this ecosystem. Thanks as well to the sign language interpreters, like Youla Nzale who is amazing at what she does. She is also the one who shot this video,’ she posted.
Her followers praised her for a great job and below are some of their comments;
