Media Personality Berla Mundi is the new host of Beauty pageant and reality show, Miss Malaika Ghana.

Production Executives say Berla Mundi brings to the show an entirely different feel, which would steer the brand to greater heights.
It is a new career feat for Mundi, who was recently outdoored as Face of Woodin’s Fusion and new Ready-To-Wear collection.
Miss Malaika Ghana is a GhOne Entertainment TV production with support from CharterHouse Productions.
Berla Mundi started out in the entertainment industry as a marketing personnel at CharterHouse Ghana Limited, after placing second runner-up at the 2010 Miss Malaika.
Based on her amazing performances on Miss Malaika, producers of the reality show, GhOneTV offered her a slot on their channel after the show ended.
Being the smart and intelligent lady that she is, Berla Mundi quickly learnt the ropes of TV production leading to her creating, producing and hosting her own entertainment news show,Omnibuzz, which was nominated for best TV news at the maiden edition of Ghana Television Awards 2014.

Early this year, Mundi joined Live FM as a presenter.
“I’ve been trying to get on radio for a while now, if you recall… I don’t know if you ever tuned into Y FM when Jay Foley was on for the Saturday Morning show. I used to go on there with him, so that was the whole idea: the plan was to try and get me on radio. That was what Jay Foley had been working on for a while now because he thought i was such a phenomenal TV presenter, I have great voice and I could succeed on radio as well,” she told this reporter.
“So when he confirmed his move to Live FM, he got in touch with me and told me about it and how he would want me to move to Live(FM) along with him because he believed that it’s a big platform and I will do well there so that’s how it started. But before that, we had been talking about getting on radio for a long time.”
A multi-talented lady, Mundi hosted quite a number of prestigious events including the launch, nominees announcement and industry night of the 2015 Ghana Music Awards, launch of Sports brand Adidas in Ghana, Women’s Month 2014 which had former First lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, current Second Lady, Her Excellency , Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur and Ministers of State in attendance, Miss Malaika 2014/15 , red carpet at the African Academy Movie Awards (AMAA) 2014 in Nigeria and many others.
She made her movie debut in 2014 in Yvonne Nelson’s Single, Married and Complicated.
Mundi’s mission in life, she says is to “help create a world of possibilities, especially for the youth by encouraging them to believe in themselves, pursue and achieve their dreams.”
She was announced as a co-host of Moments With Mo Pan-Africa together with Actress/TV Host Ama K. Abebrese this year.
The production telecasts in Nigeria , Ghana, South Africa and Kenya.
Her future goal? “To be one of Africa’s biggest broadcast journalists and also own her brand of cosmetics.”
She lives by the mantra “when they tell you ‘you can’t’ don’t. Just give them a thousand reasons why you can, SHOW THEM….’
In recognition of her amazing talent and hard work ,she is nominated in the TV Hostess of the Year category at the upcoming City People Entertainment Awards to be held in Nigeria.
