Media personality Toolz makes an appearance on Studio 53 extra with Dolapo Oni. Actually it has been a while, last year, when she appeared on the show. However, since she has been focused on presenting a more refined Toolz including her recent photoshoot, I thought to share.
It’s good to also see that she is committed to being healthy and has a fitness regimen to lose weight.
Toolz dishes on her decision to enroll in a fitness program, how she got into the music business and more.
“Tolulope ‘Toolz’ Oniru, is a vivacious and award-winning on-air personality.
She currently hosts her own radio show ‘The Midday Show with Toolz’ (weekdays) on one of Nigeria’s top urban radio stations – The Beat 99.9FM. (www.thebeat99.com)
Toolz also hosts ‘The Juice’ on NdaniTV an online initiative powered by GTBank. (ndani.tv)
Before trying her hand at radio presenting on the Beat 99.9FM, Toolz gained extensive experience
within the British entertainment industry, having worked at MTV Networks Europe for several years
before moving on to the Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group.
Toolz’s desire for new challenges had her considering a move to Lagos in mid-2008…she eventually took the plunge in 2009 and auditioned to be a radio presenter at the Beat 99.9FM after a friend mentioned the new radio station to her before she moved to Lagos. After a successful audition process, Toolz began hosting her own radio show in April 2009 and her blend of natural humour, love of most things showbiz, passion for music and strong African entertainment knowledge makes her show one of the most sought after –by listeners and celebrities alike.
Toolz has served as a judge for the Channel O Music Video Awards both in 2011 & 2012.
When Toolz isn’t on radio or hosting ‘The Juice’ or hosting/MCing events, she loves to relax with family, read, socialize with friends, watch movies, travel and SHOP!”
