Berla Mundi has extolled the virtues of EIB Network CEO Bola Ray as she makes her way out of the company which sprung her into the limelight.
In a touching ode to the ace broadcaster slash media mogul, Berla thanks Bola Ray for creating an atmosphere at EIB which enabled her to flourish into the top tv presenter that she is today.
As we reported earlier today, Berla Mundi is leaving the EIB Network to join Media General’s TV3.
However, parting on the most cordial of terms, Mundi has acknowledged the massive influence on her career by the Bola Ray brand.
The EIB CEO has through the years built one of the most respected and influential brands on the scene, underscored by the unique values of camaraderie, friendship and respect.
He has enhanced all he comes into contact with and Berla is no exception, as proven by her own farewell piece to Bola.

“Dear @Bolarayofficialand EIB, thank you; thank you for helping me discover my true self, harness my strengths and work on my weaknesses; thank you for providing the most convivial atmosphere to create lasting memories, glue-tight bonds, endless, pure and genuine laughter; thank you for allowing me to share my God-given talent with millions of people across the world. Our journey together consisted of many good moments and I would forever be grateful because you taught me to always view the cup as half-full rather than half empty. ~
Just like every chapter, ours has come to an end much sooner than I would have wanted, but I would forever cherish the family you were to me. I take along with me all the lessons learnt as I begin a new journey with my new family and I hope that with your blessings, I can share the light and positivity with Media General who have by the way, welcomed me with open arms. I do look forward to creating more lasting memories here. ~ ~
To my viewers and those that supported me, continue to pray for me as I promise you an all new experience at my new destination. I leave you with this piece, ‘Everything will make sense someday, so for now, laugh at your mistakes, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything really does happen for a reason’. ~ ~
Like the Pink Carnation, I’ll never forget your impact in my life…..Thank you Bola Ray and EIB. Our paths will cross again. Until then, I wish you God’s blessings.”
