From Left, Bolanle Olukanni, Mo Abudu and Dolapo Oni

 Moments with Mo now screened exclusively on EbonyLife TV, Channel 165 on DSTV is the first ever syndicated daily talk show on African television.
Last year,Africa’s Queen of Talk Show and CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu announced  two new, lovely co-hosts Dolapo Oni and Bolanle Olukanni and together they continue to make the popular Talk Show the platform to discuss interesting, engaging and topical issues and human interest stories such as interviewing Global Black citizens of the world; entrepreneurs and achievers in their own rights; ordinary people doing extraordinary things that affect the lives of people around them positively amongst others.
They both seem to be settling down pretty well on their job. We at would like to know who your favorite between Dolapo and Bolanle is. They are both talented, no doubt!

Bolanle Olukanni is a very multi-faceted talent in her field, having graduated from Loyola University, Chicago, with a double degree - Bachelors of Arts in both Communications and International Studies. Having lived in various parts of the world - Nigeria, Israel, Kenya and the USA, Bolanle Olukanni decided to start a very helpful blog while she was in school. The blog was called “International Students- A Guide to Life in America” and aimed at “giving advice to the International Student in America.”

Bold and passionate in her chosen fields, she was also a National Qualifier for Competitive Monologue Acting in America, a study in the power of the human voice through social action inspired monologues. In May 2010, while still in school, she won the Loyola University Chicago Kale Williams Award for Exceptional Work in Promoting Human Rights and Social Justice.
Bolanle graduated from university in 2011 and decided to work a little in the US before returning home to Nigeria for her NYSC. In that period, she became a co-founder of ‘Girls For The Future’, which is an empowerment training workshop which focuses on giving aid to Nigerian girls through education.

Dolapo Oni, who started her African Television career as the anchor on the MNET show, 53 Extra, and who soon became a force to reckon with, brings her alluring countenance and bubbly, effervescent personality to the Show. The Nigerian-born actress and television personality received her Primary education from the Lebanese Community School in Lagos.

She had her secondary education at Headington Girls Independent School in Oxford in the UK where she became the first black head girl. She went on to attain a Degree in Chemistry from the University of Bristol.
Following her passion for the arts, however, she finally pursued and received a postgraduate degree from the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London, proceeding from that point to become a seasoned presenter, actress and style icon known across Africa.
Dolapo has worked with classical and contemporary material across all mediums - from stage and film, to radio and TV, crafting her expertise in entertainment. Oni has played key roles in numerous plays, including William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Walking Waterfall by Nii Ayikwei Parkes; In Time by Bola Agbaje; God is a DJ by Oladipo Agboluaje; ‘Iya-Ile’ (The First wife), a play produced by Soho Theatre/the Tiata Fahodzi Company, to mention a few. She has received rave reviews from seasoned theatre critics for her lead roles.
