OAP, Host, Compere

(CEO, Lite Communications)

Ikponmwosa Osakioduwa, popularly known as IK ventured into the media space in 2001 as an OAP on Rhythm FM and remained with Rhythm for 18 years till March 2019. He however quickly expanded his influence and area of concentration beyond the radio station.

Early in his career, he made a move to TV. He hosted TV shows like Temptation Nigeria alongside Kemi Adetiba, MNET’s Studio 53 and Comedy Club: Live in Lagos. However, it wasn’t until he started hosting Big Brother Africa in 2009 before he became very popular. He went on to host the show for 6 years till it was called off.

When Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award held its first edition in 2013, it was no surprise to see Ik hosting the event and he has continued to host the event. In 2014, he started hosting his night show, “Highlites With IK”  that addressed current affairs and entertainment issues in a humorous and witty way.

He also hosted The Voice Nigeria for the two years it ran in 2016 and 2017. IK has tried to give back by holding  “The IK Talks”, which are free mentoring sessions to help and instruct aspiring Radio/TV presenters, Public Speakers, or Event MC’s.
