Eku Edewor is no stranger to the Nigerian film and television industries. Her talent and looks have made way for her not only as an actress or television presenter, but also as a model.
British-born Edewor is best known for her work as host of the entertainment television program 53 Extra.
As Vogue puts it in its profile of the light-skinned star, “Eku Edewor is a unique case. As the host of Nigeria’s 53 Extra, an entertainment program along the lines of E! News or Access Hollywood, Edewor profiles celebrities from across the globe. But as a model, actress, and social fixture, she doesn’t just report the news—she’s often in the headlines herself.”
The international beauty, fashion and lifestyle website contines, “And about that style—Edewor is known for her love of color and pattern, with a penchant for high-drama wares from African labels like Sophie Zinga, Bubu Ogisi, and Lisa Folawiyo. On occasion, she’ll throw on an understated black gown, but most days she keeps things bright and bold, working Ankara fabrics and mixed prints into styles that complement her petite frame.”
