It was no surprise to us when we first heard that the petite and vivacious Sika Osei was the co-host of the popular lifestyle show , Studio 53 extra. Yes! Indeed good things come to those who wait and hustle.Ever since the unexpected and surprising Dolapo Oni‘s exit in May 2013 to Ebony Life TV, the seat was left vacant for a while.Then in walked Sika Osei.
Well, aside from Sika’s vivacious character and presence on screen, one may wonder who this growing persona is?
Sika was born in Ghana, but lived most of her life in Lesotho, America and India. She has been working in PR and Events Management since 2006 but recently decided to pursue her passion for TV presenting and acting.
She hosted one of the biggest entertainment shows on Ghana TV “Phamous TV Shows” and has hosted red carpet events including the Channel O News Live in Accra and covered the Glitz Africa Fashion Week for StarGist on DSTV.
She just finished her Bachelor of Law degree and is now also a solicitor.
On the hows?:Sika saw the call for auditions on Eku Edewor’s Instagram page 24 hours before the auditions in Lagos. She took a leap of faith, booked a flight first thing in the morning.
And she later got the part.But hey, it wasn’t that easy, of course home girl had to go through rigorous screening exercise through an audition and made it out of thousands
Well, what can we say but add our congratulations to the many voices.
