Queen John
Queen John hails from Yala Local Government Area in Cross River State but was born and bred in Lagos, Nigeria. I have always wanted to be a broadcaster despite studying Genetics & Biotechnology at the University of Calabar but never thought of becoming a sport presenter. I loved sports from primary school taking part in athletics and football .It became my hobby, watching and following football games played locally and internationally. I would rather watch a 90minute game than watch a movie or hang out with friends. My female friends criticized me, because they felt football is not for girls and saw it as “weird” but that never stopped me rather it encouraged me. My journey started in August 2013 when I came to visit my cousin in Port Harcourt. Fortunately, Today 95.1 Fm was conducting an audition which I came for, and was selected. This was after I made the decision to build on my hobby as a career rather than entertainment that was earlier planned. After few minutes of discussion with the head of sport and media officer of Dolphins Fc, China Acheru, I started work the next day by watching a Nigeria Premier league game at the Liberation stadium, Port Harcourt. Though started as an analyst and reporter, I developed to be a presenter few months later. I am an avid follower of Rob Wotton, Harley Mcqueen and Kate Abdo all of Sky sports and John Dykes, the Barclays Premier League presenter. Queen John is stylish, a lover of motor racing (F1), and women football
