MTV Base VJ Ehiz Okoeguale popularly known as ‘Ehiz’ is the latest cover personality of The Zebra Magazine‘s April 2019 issue.
In the issue, media star and social entrepreneur Ehiz takes young readers behind the cameras, and into his life as one of Nigeria’s biggest exports as one of Africa’s biggest VJ’s while sharing his true story to success to inspire Nigerian youths.
Read excepts below.
On inspiring Nigerian youths:
To be honest, I cannot say what it was that stood me out of the thousands that came out that day, at the MTV VJ search… I honestly did not think I had a chance. I actually just wanted to try it out and enjoy the experience. I came in with zero expectations, and I left as the winner. It was crazy, to be honest. So, I would just say, be open to opportunities – you never know what life could bring your way.
On giving back to the younger ones:
I want to achieve more beyond just being a VJ… I feel like as human beings, we are all gifted with the capacity to do it all. I am very proud of the success of my clothing brand – ‘Dadaboydrik’ and my school outreach initiative. We just started the clothing brand a few years ago, and the community project this year, so seeing the progress made in this short time is very inspiring… I want to change the perspective that many kids have today through the life I live.
