Exclusive: #MDA 7 – Maltina Dance All Unveil Osas Ighodaro As The New Anchor
No doubt, Osas – as she is popularly called – would be bringing a wealth of experience garnered over the years to bear on the MDA platform which has also grown to become the number one family entertainment show on Television because its viewership cuts across various age grades.
Apart from being a successful model, Osas is also an actress and has been in the entertainment industry, both in the United States of America and Nigeria since 2005. What most people may however not know about Osas is that she is also an entrepreneur. “I am an entrepreneur and I grew up watching and helping my father run his businesses abroad. I have my degree in broadcast journalism and dual minor degrees in entrepreneurship and theatre from the Pennsylvania State University. I got my masters of fine arts in acting from the Actor’s Studio Drama School at Pace University”.
The new face of MDA, which is into its seventh season, says she loves acting and doing Broadway and theatre, which is the bulk of her work. She was in works like the ‘Coloured Museum,’ ‘Revenge of the King,’ ‘Platanos & Collard Greens.’ She promise to bring her wealth of experience to bear on MDA which she describes as “the most popular show on TV with a strong thread linking both the young and old, few shows can boast of this linkage.”
Having worked on a couple of projects together, Kemi Adetiba said “Osas is a vibrant young lady who will add value to the show”. She enjoined Nigerians to watch the evolution of dance when MDA hits the screens on September 1.
On her part, Osas said she will do a few dance styles when she hits the center stage in September. “I looked forward to be the new anchor of the show and I promise Nigerians that they will see the other side of a dancing Osas soon. I’d also like to commend Kemi for the way she has handled the show these past three years, she has always been professional on the stage and I wish her the best in her next challenge.”
