Thank you for the opportunity to share a little about myself.
My name is Shidoo Tarkaa. I am an on-air personality, a media manager, content producer, a writer, an actress and some thing else a lot of people don’t know about me, I am a cloth maker too, a designer or maybe a tailor too and that being a recent interest.
Well, one thing I’ve always loved is being a creative person and surpassing my expectations of myself. I see myself as someone who strives to achieve the best, not for accolades from others but for myself. I am always trying to be better.
Previously, I studied English at the Benue State University and now I am in for another degree in theatre and film arts at the University of Jos. Also i am a trained content producer and media manager by the BBC. I am still a firm believer that Education will open doors for a person who has a goal to pursue.
I have been in the broadcast Industry for close to ten years now. Started out in Radio Benue as a presenter and then producer, and a greater part of my working years was at Ashiwaves FM where I was privileged to serve as Acting Manager of the station for a period of time. The truth is that, it started as a hobby, turned passion and turned Job.
No giving up my years in the industry for anything, I was trained not just by the best hands but also best brains in the business.
Most people see me as a strong personality and a celebrity. Well I wouldn’t say I am not, I will just say that I stepped out to do what I had passion for and maybe make some money in the process and I am glad the recognition was part of it too.

I have received a lot of awards too. I was awarded twice by the Christ Embassy church Makurdi as best media partner, I’ve also received the Woman on Fire award, the Benue entertainment hero award,award of excellence by the Rotaract club of Benue State University among others.
The truth is my journey is just beginning,it hasn’t been rosy but hardwork, determination and focus can help get to heights you never imagined and I am grateful to God for the will everyday. There’s so much more I can do and I believe I can. The future will tell though.
