Bolanle Olukanni began her presenting career with Moment with Mo, now called ‘Moments.’ She still co-hosts the show alongside Toke Makinwa and Michelle Dede on EbonyLife TV.
Though raised in Nigeria, Israel, Kenya and America, Bolanle Olukanni finds there is no place like home, here in Nigeria and is very proud of her home State- Osun.
She obviously seems to be taking after her Diplomat dad who has also practised as a Communication expert. While he encourages his children to pursue their dreams, their mother on the other hand, the ultimate Christian mother, makes sure that while her children pursue their dreams, they don’t lose the fear of God.
She graduated from Loyola University Chicago, America with Honours in a double degree, of BA Communications and BA International Studies after which, she decide to do her own part in contributing to the development of her country. Bolanle moved back to Nigeria to do her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), where she spent the year working for a non-profit organization in Ekiti, Nigeria.
In 2013, Bolanle won ‘Search for Mo’s Co-host’ competition out of all hopefuls across Africa. Bolanle has interviewed a variety of inspiring and influential celebrities and politicians such as Oscar nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, Babatunde Raji Fashola and many others.
Bolanle enjoys writing poems and reading any good book. Bolanle co-hosts the hit reality music show ‘MTN Project Fame West Africa’ alongside the handsome Nollywood actor, Joseph Benjamin.
