Wofai Sam, African TV Presenter Of The Year


Ace Television Presenter Wofai Samuel sure has a ton of reasons to be grateful, winner of
several local awards and getting international recognition by the international community for her achievements in the Media-Television industry and contributions towards women empowerment initiatives and it does not stop there, She was honored at the recently held Rising Stars Media London-UK Life Changers Awards 2015 and awarded the Rising Star Award-TV Personality at the Life Changers Award held on December 4 at the Banquet Events Centre. The last child and only daughter in a family of 5 kids, the graduate of the University of Calabar has a career spanning almost a decade which stretches across Africa.

She began her professional career in television while as a model she was selected to handle a youth focus magazine show aired on live TV in Calabar, following the success of the TV programme, she was tasked with anchoring the Live Tourism Focus Broadcast, a weekly show aired on CRTV. That proved to be less challenging for the ambitious and hardworking presenter then she proceeded to handling live commentary and interview broadcasts on high profile events across the state thus creating a link between those in power and the masses. As the saying goes, the reward for good work is more work, the success of the programme she was handling propelled her to the office of the executive assistant to the media consultant to the Cross River State Government. Her programme, The Red Carpet Show with Wofai Samuel was a blast in the South South region and the success encouraged her to relocate to Lagos, the hub of entertainment and pitched a job at Nigezie as lead anchor. It was during her stint with Nigezie, she conceptualized their first ever 2 hour lunch time magazine show tagged Crunch which aired weekly on AIT.

Currently working with MITV, the renowned TV presenter who was spotted celebrating with
family and friends said she could only describe her mood as euphoric. Her choice of words were “it feels so good knowing everything we have been doing isn’t for nothing, that people really cared and that even the international community is paying attention has made it worthwhile so I am dedicating all my awards to every African woman across the world“.

A catalogue of her awards include All African Business Leaders Awards, West African Power
Awards, TREK African Women Awards, Rising Stars Media- UK Life Changers Awards, Vanguard
Personality Awards and most recently Life Changers Awards. Other than recognition from the
international community, Wofai Samuel was presented an award by the former Deputy Governor of Lagos State for her contributions towards fostering peace and unity in Nigeria through her activities.
