#ENEWSGHComeUp: Bervlyn Lomotey, an epitome of tenacity



Call her an epitome of perseverance and you will not be wrong at all. Bervlyn Lomotey was rejected on quite a number of occasions while pursuing her dream of working in a media related job but that did not deter her.

She kept pushing till she was given audience and now she is on her way to live her dream—she is an actress, TV host and a make up artist.

Sharing her experience with Graphic Showbiz’s Mster Pep on Tuesday, Bervlyn, 24, said, “ I’ve wanted to do nothing but media-related jobs since childhood. At 13 years, I went for an audition at TV3 but didn’t make the “18 years and above” cut.

“ At 14 years, I walked into Sunny FM for a job after B.E.C.E but got turned down and was told to rather record and listen to my voice on a frequent basis. After WASSCE in 2011, I went to YFM and was told no vacancy and subsequent attempts over the years proved futile”, she revealed.


Luck, however, smiled at her after she completed the University of Ghana, Legon. “ When I completed Legon in May 2015, I got the opportunity to work at Live FM with the help of Kafui Dey and proceeded to do my National Service there.

“ After the one year service period, I moved on to presenting Oceans Entertainment Box on Oceans TV, a show that airs on Fridays at 4pm with repeats on Saturdays and Sundays 12noon. I also got the chance to act in Season 2 of Yvonne Nelson’s Heels & Sneakers.

Asked where the art of make up came in, Bervlyn said that aspect of her life started while in the university when she decided to get training to wear make up properly to look good. “Make-up artistry came along in my final semester in the university where I attended a six-week training from Black Secret Makeup School and 1-week training from Evolve Makeup Nigeria. The passion further grew from the desire to myself look beautiful to others, hence my tagline ‘Beauty Full’”, she added.

Posed the question if make up business is lucrative in Ghana, Bervlyn who has worked with celebs such as Berla Mundi, Jeremie Van Garshong, Regina Van Helvert, Belinda Dzattah, Irene Logan, Semira Adams, Yvonne Nelson among others said, “Makeup artistry is a lucrative business and in recent times, has become even more profitable. Although some people still do not respect makeup artistry but I believe the brand one builds and how one carries oneself makes the difference. Bottom line, professionalism is key”, she said.

IMAGES: Zone Three 6 introduces VJ Koko



For someone who has an interest in music, a career as a video disk jockey could be fulfilling and highly remunerative.

The job of a video jockey is to provide information on music videos and host music video related contents.

A video jockey should have the characteristics of being witty, interactive and updated on the new trends in music.

A video jockey currently carving a niche for herself is none other than Ifeoma Okonkwo Kaosisochukwu of the Zonethree6 Media outlet.

The versatile and highly talented video jockey who also doubles as a beautician believes in self-development and has cravings for professional qualifications. “I have the dedication to put in the time and effort to get professional qualifications that will support my ambition”.

KOKO which she predominantly uses as her brand name believes her work ethics and her level of scrutiny and attention to detail sets her apart from the rest as her name even represents that claim.  “In Nigeria, the term Koko means SUBJECT MATTER] 0r the most important thing and as a VJ that would be what my name stands for because I will basically be bringing to them the ‘koko’ the most important thing”.

Koko also represents the view that not being a quitter and paying minds to words won’t bring her down but rather will make her stronger and better.

It’s little surprise that Koko has received great reviews from peers and industry players alike on her quest to become the best.

M-Net is also in the festive spirit, and they’ll bring us Harry Styles Live in Manchester and Madonna Rebel Heart on 24 December from 4pm.

And on New Year’s Eve, you can sing along when the channel presents Sam Smith Live in London and the annual Royal Variety Performance from 4pm. With guests including the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, they will enjoy performances from Amber Riley (Mercedes in Glee), Beverly Knight, James Blunt, Louis Tomlinson, Paloma Faith and Seal.

Bold documentaries

The life and times of Pablo Escobar is fascinating, and this time, the Discovery Channel is on the hunt for the Colombian’s millions.

Join the host Doug as he travels to Colombia, meeting up with sources who takes him to Escobar’s safe houses, as they try to find the millions. Watch Finding Escobar’s Millions on 27 December at 7pm only on the Discovery Channel.

You can also stream The Rise and Fall of El Chapo on Crime and Investigation on DStv Now on 9 December at 7:40pm. This captivating documentary will look at the Mexican drug lord, who is becoming as famous for successfully escaping from prison as for his “day job”.

Festive programming

If you’re a fan of the ITV Choice series Victoria, we’re sure you’d appreciate Victoria’s Christmas Special on 25 December at 6pm.

With Victoria and Albert’s growing family, we can’t wait to see how they celebrate this special time of year, and how they face whatever obstacle that comes their way, together.

Blockbuster movies

With movies for every mood we are spoilt for choice this December. We’ve already diarised two of the Sunday Night Blockbusters we’re looking forward to seeing: Beauty and the Beast (17 December) and Lion (24 December).

Another movie we can’t wait for is The Birth of a Nation on 8 December at 7:30pm on Vuzu AMP.

With an all-star cast including Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane), Aja Naomi King (How To Get Away With Murder), Armie Hammer (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Aunjanue Ellis (The Help) and Penelope Ann Miller (The Artist), The Birth of a Nation tells the story of an imprisoned slave Nat Turner, who led a rebellion.

Riveting sport matches

With the local and international football leagues in full swing, we have to make sure you don’t miss out on these matches, so download our DStv Now app, just in case you won’t be home to follow the action.

Champions League action is on 5 and 6 December and the match we’re most looking forward to seeing is Bayern Munich v PSG on 5 December.

Manchester Derby Pep Guardiola’s City is sitting pretty at the top of the table, and Jose Mourinho’s United isn’t too far behind. What will happen at the derby on 10 December?

The last time Arsenal faced Liverpool, they lost by four goals. Can Arsene Wenger’s men redeem themselves, or will Jürgen Klopp’s team do the double on 22 December?

One of the biggest matches in La Liga is undoubtedly El Clasico. This classic encounter between Barcelona and Real Madrid is taking place on 23 December and what we can predict is that things will be intense at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

There’s also nothing quite like Boxing Day football. With eight matches live on SuperSport, tune in from 12:30pm to see what the day’s action will do to the Premier League table.

Download the DStv Now app and enjoy great TV entertainment with DStv, this festive season.
