Liz Yemoja was born in Nigeria, but raised in the UK. She began her foray into media in 2009. Armed with sheer determination and focus, Liz started her own online show on youtube ‘The Liz Yemoja Show’ featuring artists from all genres of the Nigerian entertainment industry from M.I Abaga, Mohits, (Wande Coal, Dbanj, Donjazzy), Dj Zeez, Sauce Kid, The Late Dagrin, Eldee The Don, Kojo Comedian, Eddie Kadi, and many more.
The show was an instant success and got her noticed by executives at one of Nigeria’s leading record labels, Storm 360. Storm 360 executives offered her an opportunity to present season three of Channel O’s 100% Naija where she interviewed Nigerians in the Diaspora making a positive impact in their society. The interviews were filmed in London (UK), New York (USA), and Nigeria. She later went on to co-present ‘The Magazine Show’ which was filmed Live and aired on Ben Television in the United Kingdom from 2010 – 2012. She is currently a radio host for iGroove Radio and an online media manager for Nigeria’s foremost women’s magazine Genevieve Magazine.
