MTV Base is looking out for the next generation of young Nigerian on-screen talent to become superstar TV personalities with the launch of the third edition of the MTV Base VJ Search campaign.
The second edition of the MTV Base VJ Search was held in 2013 with Ehizokjie Okoegulae aka Ehiz emerging as winner and he went home with ten thousand US dollars and a brand new car.
Since his win, Ehiz has become a regular face at high profile events, red carpets and he presently hosts ‘Naija Top 10‘ and ‘Word on the Street‘ on MTV Base.
He is also set to be the host of Ridiculousness Africa, an all-African video clip comedy show showcasing and commenting on hilarious and crazy African Internet videos.
The new VJ will become one of the key faces of the music network, hosting programmes on MTV Base.
The winner will also interview stars, host parties and concerts, walk the red carpet at entertainment events, and travel around the continent representing MTV Base.
If you think you have what it takes to be the new face of MTV Base, then keep it locked to mtvbase.com as more information will be revealed shortly.
