Dolapo Oni is arguably the face of TV in Nigeria. Starting her African television career as the anchor on the MNET show, 53 Extra, she is currently the co-host of Africa’s most syndicated show, Moments with Mo, alongside veteran talk show host and media entrepreneur, Mo Abudu.
A graduate of Chemistry from the University of Bristol in England, Dolapo eventually pursued her passion for the arts. In September 2005, she graduated with an MA in Drama from the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London. She had her primary education from the Lebanese Community School in Lagos, and received her secondary education at Headington Girls Independent School in Oxford in the UK where she became the first black head girl.
In 2010, she was involved in Vexed, a miniseries that aired on the BBC in England. She played multiple roles in the play ‘Iya-Ile’ (The First wife), written by Oladipo Agboluaje; the play was nominated for a prestigious Lawrence Olivier Award. She has also played roles in numerous plays, including: William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Walking Waterfall by Nii Ayikwei Parkes; In Time by Bola Agbaje; God is a DJ by Oladipo Agboluaje. Also of prominence was her role as Moremi in the critically acclaimed TV Series, Jacob’s Cross.
Even though she has achieved so much, Dolapo is not relenting on taking her career to even greater heights. She is currently a brand ambassador for the soft drink SNAPP. Her new gig as co-host on Moments with Mo is definitely the continuation of a wonderful career in TV.

The new issue of the magazine also features exciting fashion spreads. Featured also is Zuriel Oduwole, the youngest person ever to be interviewed by Forbes Magazine. At just 10 years old, the young Nigerian is taking giant strides in changing the world. 

Ezinne Asinugo, 23, Nigerian (Igbo); Soliat Bada, 24, Nigerian (Yoruba); Nqobilé Ntshangase, 25, South African. Known as the CEO dancers, these three girls have been making huge waves in the UK and in the online community. They have been in the entertainment circle for a while now and worked with literally every afrobeat
artist you can think of. So it was only right for us to get them in the studio and have a quick chat.

We also take a look at twelve creatives under 25, who are creating waves for themselves in the Nigerian fashion scene. They are proudly young, creative and Nigerian: Ifeanyi Dike, Bubu Ogisi, Wana Sambo, Audıfferen Chukwuma Ian, Onyinye Fafi Obi, Toyosi Faridah Kekere-Ekun, Bidemi Zakariyau, Kike Soyode, Makida Moka, Kene Rapu, Ifan Ifeanyi Michael, Lolu Osinbajo.
