TV’s New It Girl! Meet Sika Osei, Eku Edewor’s Co-Host on Studio 53 Extra



Sika Osei - December 2013 - BellaNaija 01

This is a face you want to be familiar with.

Studio 53 Extra‘s main host Eku Edewor has a new co-host. Ever since Dolapo Oni‘s depature was announced in May 2013, the seat has been left vacant.

After a rigorous screening exercise through an audition, Sika Osei was chosen among thousands. Sika is 28-year old Ghanaian and has a BA in Law.

Who is Sika: Sika was born in Ghana, but lived most of her life in Lesotho, America and India. She has been working in PR and Events Management since 2006 but recently decided to pursue her passion for TV presenting and acting.

She hosted one of the biggest entertainment shows on Ghana TV “Phamous TV Shows” and has hosted red carpet events including the Channel O News Live in Accra and covered the Glitz Africa Fashion Week for StarGist on DSTV.

She just finished her Bachelor of Law degree and is now also a solicitor.

On how she got the gig: Sika saw the call for auditions on Eku Edewor’s Instagram page 24 hours before the auditions in Lagos. She took a leap of faith, booked a flight first thing in the morning.

And she later got the part.

Sika recently made her red carpet debut at the Africa Magic at 10 Anniversary Party/2014 AMVCA Nominees Announcement, on Thursday 5th December 2013 at the Landmark Village, Victoria Island, Lagos.

She proved to be one to watch out for on the red carpet, when she arrived in a tribal print mini by CLAN from its Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.

She styled the dress with gold earrings, a statement neck piece, gold cuff and red platforms.

      Don’t u think its only fair that other Africans should also be given d opportunity to host? Afterall Mnet Africa does not cater to only Nigerian audience but Africa at large

      Biko stop right there, when a Nigerian gets a job in South Africa you would not complain! Leave this girl she auditioned like everyone else. Good luck to her

    My 6 yr old thinks it shd be mnet Nigeria,not mnet Africa and I say to him never mind Papa if they can do the job well it doesn’t matter,so I’m a little hurt if someone thinks its unfair to bring a Ghanaian on board.

    See the thing with auditions for shows like this is they always end up picking a familiar face, or someone who has an ‘overseas’ factor. Its pretty rare to find people who actually studied it as a course in a nigerian university, getting the deservd role and its so sad. Congrats to her tho

    well whether we want to admit it or not, the ‘overseas factor’ gives the level of EXPOSURE necessary for many jobs . it’s simply the truth. do you know to get into Cambridge uni and many other ivy league schools, they check how many countries you’ve been to and stuff like that. so it’s not just a Nigerian thing, I don’t know why we complain about it. I will rather aspire to go places and pray my dreams come true than sit on my behind waiting for the day recruiters will honour the “local factor” over the “overseas factor”. #justsaying.

    I am busy fighting xenophobia on the other page and you ladies are here letting me down.
    As long as it is a continental production and the audition was open to non-Nigerians,nothing do her.
    Congrats to her!
