Q2. Wow, great profile. The name Bonnison Pondis is not among your birth name, how did it come about??
Ans: “The need to expand my brand to a wider audience gave birth to Bonnison which was carved out from my father’s name ‘Boniface. Pondis is a Jamaican slang for ‘Here’. So I’m here to stay, no shaking, I stand gidigbam. Most times when folks hear the name, Jude Bonnison Pondis, the first impression has always been… where’s he from.
I love it because it helps my brand go places and knowing fully well that the world is my cathedral, I have always had that global mindset from day one”.

At JBM, we’re on a mission to put your brand in the lips of men”.

At JBM, we have branded companies, individuals, Churches, organizations and corporate firms. You know the saying that goes thus… lose lips ship sinks. Therefore, I wouldn’t want to mention some of the brands we’ve marketed so far. We also cover all forms of events and provide media services to client”.
Q5. Wonderful. We see that you are so passionate about putting back Imo State to the Global map, Tell us about this vision and what steps you have taken to achieve it.
Ans: “First of all, Imo creative industry is emerging. Imo state is also an emerging state in Nigeria. There’s always a time for paradigms shift and this is such time. We want to put Imo state on the world map, because Imo state is actually a very beautiful state that the world needs to hear her.
I started by creating positive awareness amongst talents in the state, I believe that proper education of the entertainer will boost their mindset. I introduced Imo media and entertainment conference where we gather talents and put them through on information needed as to continue and finish strong in the business.
Entertainment is a game of number, feeding that number is a task that must be accomplished if you really want to remain in the game, if you stop feeding your audience, they’ll run away from you.
I have taken it upon myself to sensitize the people on the right part to follow.
We haven’t gotten there yet but definitely, we’re not stagnant at all, we’ll get there real soon”.
Q6. You made mention of “Imo media and Entertainment conference“, we learnt that you have organised the conference for two years straight, now we ask you, the outcome has it been positive or negative??
Ans: “It hasn’t been 2yrs yet, the first one came up 4th October 2018 while the former held on 3rd October 2019. I’ve never engaged in anything negative. For you to even put up an idea as this, interviewing me, means you’ve learnt a lot from me. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to waste your time on someone who’s not showing working. Ever since my emergence, it’s been hard for those who he refused to frown from their former state, the industry is really hot, too tight, for substandard folks to fit it. It’s been positive all the way”.
Q7. You recently put up a Campaign on #WeCanFixIt in the Media and Entertainment Industry sector of our darling State, Imo, How far have you gone with it? What’s the Situation Report like now??
Ans: “That’s the tag of Imo media and entertainment conference. The aim of the campaign is to make media the strength of Imo state and as you can see, Imo state is fast becoming a social media state. There’s huge improvement already, if we keep pushing, Imo state will take over in subsequent years to come”.
Q8. What do you want the world to know about Jude Bonnison Pondis that they don’t know?
Ans: “Jude is a very shy person. Most people fight me online without coming close to know my kind of person. I’m a very lovable soul. I love to inspire the generation now and next”.
Q9. Where do we expect to see JBM and Pondis as a person in the next 2years from now??
Ans: “I have a five year plan. I have done one already. In two years, I should be probably be expanding my reach. Making new contacts and engaging in positive change that’ll lead to big benefits for my brand. Everything is in the hands of God. He’s knows my today, tomorrow and next move”.
Q10. Wow, powerful. Can you share little experience while pushing this movement and lastly, your advice for upcoming or rather we say fast rising Entertainers.
Ans: “It hasn’t been easy I must confess. Consistency has been the watchword. Even when the people are finding it hard to buy the idea because some of them feels it’s a Jude Bonnison’s thing, is also proven to them that this is real, I’ve always wanted them to forget what they think they know and align with us.
