MTV Base VJ Search grand finale is happening this Friday, January 25th at Don Jazzy’s club, POP and the Mavins will be performing at the big showdown along with Iyanya and other artistes.
Rumour has it that Don Jazzy will be hosting the exclusive after-party also at his club POP.
Kemi Owatemi, Ada Ogunkeye and Ehizojia Okoeguale who have been having the time of their lives since their emergence as finalists for the MTV Base VJ Search competition after competing against thousands, will go through the final stage of the competition this Friday and Iyanya, Ice Prince and Burna Boy will be on ground to mentor the finalists.
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 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!
The winner will go home with 10 million naira contract as well as a brand new car among other exciting prizes.
Who do you think will win and become MTV Base's new VJ? Kemi Owatemi, Ada Ogunkeye or Ehizojia Okoeguale?
