Woman praised after halting show until presenter pronounces name correctly

Woman praised after halting show until presenter pronounces name correctly

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has been praised for the way she handled the situation

The woman who forced a presenter to pronounce her name correctly has been praised for her persistence.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu appeared on an episode of The Jeremy Vine Show this week, where the host stumbled over her name.

You can see how it went down here:

For those of you who aren't too familiar with the Channel 5 morning programme, the basic premise sees someone from the right and someone from the left argue for two hours over the week's headlines.

Once the initial show is finished, it's then time for Jeremy Vine Extra, which is a continuation of the same debates but with a new presenter and two new panelists.

And this week saw Dawn Neesom in the hot seat, and things went downhill pretty fast for her.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be joined by lawyer Dr Shola - how do I pronounce your last name, Shola?" she asks in a clip that was shared widely online.

Smiling back at the presenter, Dr Shola then says: "Read it, my darling, read it."

After several attempts, an exasperated Dr Shola adds: "So this is terrible, especially for a presenter."

Shouting over her guest, Dawn agrees: "I am terrible! I can't remember Shola's name!"

Dr Shola then calmly prompts the presenter: "Go back and start again. Phonetically."

"Okay. Shola. Mos. Shog. Man. Imu!" is the host's painful attempt.

However, still not impressed, Dr Shola simply replies: "Do it again."

"Oh, come on," Dawn says. "I got the Shola right!"

But Dr Shola wasn't having any of it, and tells her: "Do it again. Phonetically."

After another few failed attempted, Dawn tries to move on, saying: "Shola... Shola! Welcome to the show!"

But again, Dr Shola doesn't let her get away with it, demanding: "No. You will say my name. Now read it phonetically."

Dawn Neesom tried desperately to move on.

Since the clip began doing the rounds, thousands of people have come out and praised Dr Shola for her persistence.

Many said she handled the situation fantastically by not allowing the presenter to fob her off.

Sharing the clip to Twitter, one user said: "Bravo. Say it. Read it again. Read it phonetically. Nope, you’ll say my name.

"Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu didn’t accept laziness and lack of even trying."

Another commented: "She had her pressed! With extra starch."

"Yass! Demand respect, Queen!!" put a third.

While someone else added: "Wonderful. No caving in. I love it.

"It’s about respect. If she didn’t care to prepare, now it was the time.

"Very strong, Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu."
