In Her Closet – Season 2, Episode 4 With Media “IT” Girl, Bolanle Olukanni

In Her Closet – Season 2, Episode 4 With Media “IT” Girl, Bolanle Olukanni

It took me a year and 3 months to get this interview, but I didn’t give up because if y’all don’t know, Bolanle Olukanni is my girl crush.



First time I came across her on TV was at the live auditions for the Co Host of the Moments With Mo on Ebony Life TV in 2013. The first thing that struck me was her high level of intelligence, and over the years I have watched her evolve from being the New TV girl to the IT TV Girl.

From TV to the Red Carpet and Compering A- List shows, Acting and being a style ambassador among a host of other commendable things, Bolanle has become one of the most sort after Media Personalities in Nigeria.

There’s a lot to gosh about with Bolinto as she is popularly called, but I’d save you all of that and focus on the one reason I am here, her sense of style, which has placed her among the top 20 style influences in the industry today.



Let’s get straight into the interview.
