About

 

Hello, I'm Folu Storms, but you can call me Folu :-)

 

My full names are Ada Afoluwake Ogunkeye, and I am  an Actor, Voice-over artist, Producer,  radio & television host  and explorer also known as Folu Storms.

Early Life: I  grew up in a house filled with books, and this is where my love for stories (finding and telling them) began. Being the daughter of a Lawyer however, influenced my decision to study Law with the aim of affecting change my society. I then went on to gain Graduate and Postgraduate degree studies, attaining an LLB, LLM and Barristers qualification (Bachelor at Law) from The University of Wales, Aberystwyth; Bristol University and The Nigerian Law School respectively. 

Career:  After a brief stint practicing, I went on to become a broadcaster on a local radio station (92.3 Inspiration) in 2012; it was there I heard of the MTV Base Africa Vj search and competed to become a top 3 finalist.

At the end of the competition, Ndani Tv hired me as a content producer and presenter and since then I have created and presented a number of Ndani TV Shows including:  The Juice Season 1, The New Africa, Style Guide & Young C.E.O.

I have  also worked(and continue to work with) with a number of brands including: Smooth 98.1fm, Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Spinlet, The Guardian Newspaper Nigeria, Digibrands and Jumia.

Recognition: The wealth of experience I gained from these varied projects led to the successful completion of Ndani Tv’s “ The New Africa”(watch it now online at Ndani TV)  which I wrote, produced and hosted and which received a nomination for Best Documentary at the Africa Magic Viewer Choice Awards 2016 .

Today: Today you can catch me giving you the global pop-culture scoop on Mtv Base Africa, writing reviews about my weekend shenanigans bi-monthly for The Guardian Newspaper and every weekday morning filling the ears and hearts of Lagos commuters withher sharp intellect and surprising sense of humour, on Smooth 98.1 fm; discussing everything from Current Affairs to travel adventures and recommended music playlists! 

I like to think that my unique blend of intelligence, charm, beauty and passion combine to form a perfectly delightful storm. But go through the site and decide for yourself!
