Den Tales was birthed in November, 2017. It was a phone-in radio programme aired on 91.1 Lion FM of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. The 45-minute programme was broadcast live every Wednesday and Saturday. The inspiration for the programme arose from my intuition that some students who were going through life challenges could gain from the counsel of members of the public. Den Tales therefore, was designed to be a platform where people shared their problems, addictions or dirty confessions and got advice/counsel from the audience. Anyone could send in advice-seeking stories weekly, through publicised contacts. Thereafter, the stories were read on air followed by the provision of phone lines and social media handles to listeners through which my co-presenter (Mhiz Portable) and I received contributions.
Due to wide listenership of the programme, clients advertised on Den Tales. We received lots of calls from within and outside the university campus. Those who had their problems solved through the programme also called to thank us on air. Through Den Tales, some indigent students were able to get help to pay their school fees.
