The Nigerian youth has witnessed a renaissance in the past few years. Young people are breaking boundaries
and crashing ceilings to pursue career lines they love. In this cover edition, we present two wonderful young
ladies who have made their marks in their respective fields. Despite having success and wide acclaim in common,
these two also share a common tragedy. Their fathers were instrumental in shaping their careers. Yet
both lost their fathers just as their careers were beginning to blossom.
Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola, also known as Mo’cheddah, is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in
the music industry. First introduced to the Nigerian public by her performance in The Finest(Won Beri)
by Knight House, Mo’Cheddah has gone ahead to prove that she is indeed of the finest breed. In 2009, she
featured in the Girl Power Tour. Since then, she has added MTV and Channel O awards to her resumé, with
great reception for her album Franchise Celebrity. In this interview, she talks with Shile Shonoiki about her
journey into music.
Chika Emmanuel won the 2010 Elite Model competition at just 15 years old. That was merely a launch-pad
for the teenager who has since gone to feature on runways all over the world, including the prestigious New
York Fashion Week. At 5ft7, she would have been considered by many to be too short for modeling. However,
Chika didn’t let anything deter her. She has featured in nearly all magazines in Nigeria, scoring her place as
a photographer’s delight. She speaks to Julie Odia about her career and her future aspirations.
