If you are a Skinny Girl In Transit freak, like i am: Then you must be a huge fan of the character Wosilat! Played by Chioma Okoli.
Chioma is a final year Theatre arts student of University of Lagos, and she has managed to win our hearts from Season 1 to 4 of Ndani TV web series “SKINNY GIRL IN TRANSIT”. She has kept us entertained amidst all the drama going on in either Tiwa’s life or Shalewa’s life. She is the humor to all the suspense and tension that comes with the series. Her makeup and facial expression is always priceless. Not to mention her use of English. Chioma Okoli did slay her role effortlessly!
I just had to bring her here! Though, She treaded carefully while answering our questions; but i must say, she is quite a catch! Smart, Talented and Young!
I don’t believe her age though: 22 or 23? No Way!! What do you think?
