Olive Emodi is a Nigerian Television host, Radio Personality, Writer, Actress and Lawyer. She started out her career with a University law degree and thereafter proceeded to the Nigerian Law School for her Bachelor in Law degree.
She started building her entertainment career while in University by anchoring events in University, modeling, writing poems and performing them on stage. In 2011, she emerged the winner of Delta Talent Quest Acting Reality TV organized by the then Commissioner of Culture and Tourism, Richard Mofe-Damijo on behalf of the Delta State Government. Winning this opened up more opportunities for her as she hosted tons of red carpet events for the state.
After Law School, Olive started to work with Cool TV (a sister station to Cool FM, Wazobia FM and Nigeria Info) and this afforded her a great opportunity to pursue her passion in media while getting better at it. Apart from covering events for the company, here are some of the shows she presented;
- Good Morning Nigeria Show (Cool TV): A daily current affairs based show with several segments such as newspaper review, foreign focus, Entertainment, Odd news and sports.
- The Late Night Show (Cool TV): A nightly entertainment show featuring celebrity interviews, music and games
- Padi Padi (Wazobia TV): A hilarious pidgin English show which aired daily
One of her greatest strengths is her spontaneity and her ability to fit into almost any show. Anchoring these different shows helped her realize just how versatile she is, because these shows had different settings yet her consistency in delivery was certain.
Cool TV has now been merged with Wazobia TV to create Wazobia Max, therefore Olive is now a presenter on Wazobia Max. She is currently a show anchor on the show ‘Hello Nigeria’ which airs every weekday on Wazobia max from 12noon-1pm, an On Air Personality on 99.3 Nigeria Info FM where she anchors the Sunday Night Show with Olive from 9pm-1am.
In the coming months she will push harder not just through the TV screens and the radio waves, but also with her writing and her acting. You can keep up to date with her by following her on all social media portals @oliveemodi
