About Bolanle Olukanni
Raised in Nigeria, Israel, Kenya and America, Bolanle Olukanni has seen a fair bit of the world but finds there is no place like home, here in Nigeria. She graduated from Loyola University Chicago, in Chicago, America with Honours in a double degree, of BA Communications and BA International Studies.
After graduating from Loyola University Chicago, she decided she wanted to do her own part in contributing to the development of Nigeria. Bolanle moved back to Nigeria to do her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), where she spent her service year working for a non-profit organization in Ekiti, Nigeria.
During her NYSC service year, Bolanle and a fellow corps member started ‘Girls For The Future’, a gender-based empowerment workshop for secondary school students aimed at teaching the girl child of their rights and providing mentorship for the students.
Upon completion of her NYSC in 2013, Bolanle entered into the ‘Search for Mo’s Co-host’ competition. She wanted to be a part of the syndicated talk show ‘Moments with Mo’ because of its great reputation in inspiring its viewers. Bolanle was chosen out of over 400 other hopefuls to be one of the co-hosts alongside talk show host and CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu. ‘Moments with Mo’ airs on EbonyLife TV across forty-four different Africa countries and on TalkTalk television in the UK. During the course of hosting the show, Bolanle has had the opportunity to interview a variety of inspiring and influential entrepreneurs, celebrities and politicians such as
President Muhammdu Buhari, Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, Grammy award-winning singer Brandy, former Lagos State Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola to name a few.
In 2014, Bolanle joined hit reality music show MTN Project Fame, West Africa, as a host alongside Joseph Benjamin.
