Title: Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu Takes Over The Hot Seat
Rising showbiz icon Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu has taken over the hot seat as the newest host of Celebrity Late Night Show on eTV.
The show was previously hosted by Sammy Forson, Dzifa Smith and lastly Ohenewaa Boateng.
They all did well to bring sheer talent to bear and provided TV viewers what they need. They made sure TV viewers got the necessary answers they needed from their celebrities.
Deborah has a style and she will be expected to take it to the next level. She started last week and had some stars pass through.
Last Friday actress Luckie Lawson and Miss Ghana 2004 Inna Patty made their turn on the show. It has so far been good for Vanessa as comments being made about her are commendable.
She was born in Ghana to an Ashanti father and Romanian mother. Being from two different cultures gave her the ability to see things from more than one perspective and thus made her open to diversity, readily identifying the beauty in things as well as developing a genuine interest in people and cultures. Ultimately, it led her to being an extrovert with outstanding social skills.
Deborah grew up in Accra, attended Christ the King International School then to Wesley Girls High School. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Publishing Studies from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana, followed by a Master Degree in Book/Journal Publishing from the University of the Arts London in the UK. She has shown her professionalism and passion for her chosen field by working successfully for both small enterprises as well as big corporations in Ghana, the United States and United Kingdom.
Naturally, being the centre of attention since her childhood, Deborah has always been a ‘show’ person of sorts and has since found the right balance between corporate work and the entertainment industry.
Her experience as a mentor through the Mannequin Academy, an initiative to give industry training to both professional and amateur models that she co-founded, gave her the confidence that she had the strength to take on greater things.
She recently had a life-changing experience when hosting a documentary for the Cadbury Canada Fair trade Campaign taking the world to Ghana’s cocoa farmers and their farms, proudly presenting the valuable commodity and flourishing farming communities as well as educating the public on the importance of Fair trade.
Deborah is going from strength to strength, multiplying experiences as a TV personality and a public figure, and constantly inspiring people.
With Miss Ghana 2010, she found a way to blend her many passions for fashion, mentoring, presenting and representing Ghana’s beauty and now, as eTV’s host of the Late Nite Celebrity Show, she is set to be a significant player on Ghana’s cultural scene and the best is yet to come.
