BN Exclusive: Meet Tinsel’s New Drama Queen! Osas Ighodaro joins the Popular M-Net Africa Magic Soap Opera | Check Out her Fab Promo Shots

BN has grabbed exclusive scoop from the set of Tinsel!

She’s gorgeous, well educated, widely travelled and a rising star. She’s Osas Ighodaro and DStv audiences can see her in action when she joins AfricaMagic’s popular soap opera TINSEL! The New York born Nigerian-American actress, formerly Miss Black USA 2010, is hard at work in Lagos filming scenes for her new role on the series.

On Tinsel Osas plays free-spirited and forthright Adanna, an art student from the US who travels to Nigeria to find her inspiration. Honest and charming Adanna can light up a room but her restless energy sees her searching for love, adventure and self-discovery. Along the way, her unconventional interests will get her into all kinds of trouble. One thing is for sure – she’ll keep the folks of Tinseltown guessing!

DStv audiences will see the talented Osas on screen for the first time on November 8 and she will stay on the series until the end of February. So there’s a lot of time for audiences to appreciate her skill, passion and intelligence says M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi.

From the minute you meet Osas, you’re dazzled. She’s smart, thoughtful and humble. She’s a great addition to the Tinsel cast and we were delighted when she approached us about guest starring on the show. She’s passionate about her Nigerian roots, about entertainment and about making the most of every opportunity. We are thrilled she’s joined the AfricaMagic family.

A graduate of Pennsylvania State University, Osas has a Bachelors’ of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and dual minor degrees in Entrepreneurship and Theatre. She also holds a Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Acting from the Actor’s Studio Drama School at Pace University.

The determined performer has appeared in theatre productions such as The Colored Museum, Revenge of the King and the award winning off-Broadway play Platanos Y Collard Greens. Osas has performed in several films and TV shows including Cadillac Records, 2011 Sundance Film Festival selected – Restless City, The Tested & Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns. The model, dancer and spokesperson is also a devoted campaigner for social causes, focused on raising awareness around malaria and heart disease.

Speaking about her role on Tinsel, the actress says, “Having the opportunity to be here in Nigeria working on Tinsel has been great!” The cast and crew are absolutely amazing, my storyline is so exciting to work on and performing in the motherland is a dream come true! I’m proud to be introduced to the African audience via the #1 Soap Opera in Africa – Tinsel.

And in closing Osas encourages audiences to tune in to the soap opera daily because, “Adanna will certainly bring her share of drama to Tinsel!

So make a date to see Osas Ighodaro on Tinsel, every day on AfricaMagic Entertainment at 20:30 CAT. For more information on the series, log on to
