share on:

MTV Base has revealed the names of the three talented newcomers battling it out for fame and fortune in the MTV Base VJ Search competition.

Going head-to-head in the last stage of the channel’s search for a new MTV Base VJ, are 26 year old Ada Ogunkeya(@Folustorms), 25 year old Ehizojia Okoeguale (@SpecialSlim) and 22 year old Kemi Owatemi (@SsmallzZ).

The ultimate victor will win a contract with MTV Base worth 10million Naira plus a brand new car and other exciting prizes.

Lagos born Ada is an on-air personality at 92.3 Inspiration radio.  A self-confessed “life enthusiast”, Ada’s Twitter page describes her as an “opinionated, impulsive giggle-bot, knowledge fiend, natural hair lover, dancer, and all round dude”.   According to Ada, ‘I feel like I’ve been preparing for this moment my whole life – it feels right!”

Smart and witty Kemi (Dahlia to her friends) loves dancehall music and Rihanna in equal   measure.  The personal motto of this young novel-loving Capricorn is “Happiness is Key”, and she describes her personal style as “more denim than silk”.

Happy-go-lucky jobseeker and computer electronics graduate Ehiz, a.k.a “Special Slim”, is always the life and soul of the party.  With a personal mantra that states “Be the best you can be because at the end of the day you can only answer for yourself”, old-skool funk fan Ehiz numbers Fela Kuti, Born Jamericans and LL Cool J among his favourite artists – and loves the colour red because it represents both love and danger!

Ada, Ehiz and Kemi were hand-picked by judges Banky W (@BankyW)Toolz (@ToolzO), Funke Akindele(@funkeakindele) and Tim Horwood (@timohorwood) after competing against thousands of applicants in the MTV Base VJ Search – Nigeria auditions in December.   The winner will join Sizwe Dhlomo and Nomuzi Mabena on MTV Base’s in-house talent roster, presenting their own chart show on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322, STV & AIT).

The winner in the MTV Base VJ Search – Nigeria competition will be selected by the judges during the Grand Final in Lagos, on 25 January and revealed on MTV Base on Tuesday 29 January.  MTV Base VJ Cynthia C-Von Okpala andMTV’s newest South Africa VJ, Nomuzi Mabena, will share emcee-ing duties at the gig, while celebrity artists Iyanya, Ice Prince and Burna Boy will be helping the 3 finalists to complete their final challenges.

You’ll be able to see Ada, Ehiz and Kemi showing off their stuff in the next two episodes of the MTV Base VJ Search – Nigeria, on MTV Base, DStv Channel 322 at 18:30 WAT on 22 & 29 January and on STV at 18:00 WAT on 24 & 31 January.
