Olayinka Oladiran wins MTV Base VJ Search

26 September 2016, 15:50

Lagos - After a nail-biting two-month nationwide search, 23-year-old Olayinka Oladiran from Abeokuta was finally revealed as the winner of the 2016 MTV Base VJ Search.

Four finalists from all over the country slugged it out for the top slot during the televised grand final in front of Viacom executives Alex Okosi and Katung Aduwak, as well as famous faces from the entertainment industry including Olisa Adibua, Vector Tha Viper, Ikechukwu, Niniola, among many others.

Olayinka Oladiran beat fellow finalists Tomiwa Olorunfemi (23), Tochukwu Onwubiko (21) and 19-year-old twins, Grace and Glory Danbaki after competing with thousands of hopefuls in Lagos, Enugu and Abuja plus online and social media applicants.

  While all the competitors brought their “A-Games” to the finale, K’Ola outstripped the competition thanks to her bubbly personality, relaxed stage presence, and the ability to relate to the audience.

Last night my life changed forever, I became an MTV Base VJ. But it was not just a victory for me, it was a victory for anybody who ever doubted themselves. Nothing in life is ever certain, but your belief in yourself and faith in God must remain constant. It is in this moment that I realize that you can literally be whoever you want to be. I plan on living in that space of possibilities forever. And I encourage everyone to do the same. I love you all, and this moment belongs to us all ?????? @mtvbasewest thanks for this new adventure I'm about to embark on, it's about to be LIT!!!!!! @flairtitude @handi_twinny @wanni_twinny @thereal_simon1 I love you all, my experience wouldn't have been complete without yall. #ImInLoveWithTheKoKo #KeepingUpWithKOla #KOlaKronicles #mtvbase #mtvbasevjsearch #BaseVJSearch #TeamOladiran #dreams #dreamsdocometrue #dreamchaser #melaninbeautiesunite #melenin #african #africangirl #africangirlskillingit #boss #youngceo #mediagirl #media #mediamogul #radiant #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #naija #naijagirlskillingit #Queen #Lagos #lasgidi #lagoslife#Godschild
