OhManPodcast Ope and Dami

Ope Oworu and Dami Ajike from Ohmanpodcast Dublin, Ireland give us an insight into what inspired them to begin their podcast.

Tell us a bit about you?

My name is Dami Ajike, I was born in Nigeria and I’ve been living in Ireland for over 20 years. I completed my full education over in Ireland, and I’ve worked in banking and financial services since 2015. I’m passionate about football, and Manchester United is my forever club.

Tell us a bit about you?

My name is Ope Oworu, and I’ve been living in Ireland for about 20 years now. I’m a mortgage broker by day and Jollof connoisseur by night. I can not go a day without listening to either Wizkid or Burna boy (which helps the soul). Manchester United is for the blood pressure.


How did you start off, and what was your inspiration Dami?

I was looking for a safe space to discuss topics, talk, and have a laugh with my friends about our realities and the situations we faced in the different stages of our lives.

How did you start off, and what was your inspiration Ope?

It all started in university, I would miss a lecture or two to sit down with friends in the canteen and discuss different topics for hours. The topics we discussed and the stories we would share about our experiences inspired me in a positive way to discuss topics that will have an impact on our community.

What challenges did you face Dami?

When we first started Ohmanpodcast there were too many of us in the beginning, we only had one mic between all of us and we had no guaranteed location for recording and this made it hard and messy at the start.

What challenges did you face Dami?

The challenge I faced was consistency and discipline. It was hard managing individual schedules output delivery.

How did the both of you overcome those challenges?

We went back to the drawing board to understand what would work and what didn’t work. We wanted honest conversations and to be open-minded on trying different approaches to improve the structures we had in place. Also, some people couldn’t accommodate the structures we had in place due to working hours and location, so we both decided to keep working on the podcast together.
