The new VJ will follow in the footsteps of MTV Base veteran VJ Ehiz Okoeguale, winner of the channel’s second Nigerian VJ search back in 2013. Ehiz was transformed overnight from a job-seeker to a bonafide TV star! Ehiz has hosted a multitude of MTV Base programmes and showbiz events, including the Official Naija Top 10, Word on the Street, and Real Talk. He interviewed stars from Lagos to Amsterdam and Hollywood, including artists like Tinie Tempah, Wale, Jidenna, Davido, Wizkid and Tiwa Savage.

    one day I saw Ehiz with the kids…the connection was mental! I was like if only this guy was a teacher mennnn, our children for sabi book well well no be only all this yo yo yo. And that made me come up with one of my major missions right now: entertainment / education / media , basically getting the class and learning life to be as cool as the hangout and hip-hop life. so that our kids won’t just die dumb.
