Marcy Dolapo Oni aka Princess Dolapo Sijuwade is an actress and a presenter. The British born Television personality hails from Ijebu-Ode, Ogun state, Southwest Nigeria and have a degree in Chemistry from University of Bristol, England.
She also has a masters degree in Drama from Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London.Her first movie in the Nollywood movie industry is titled Diary of a Lagos Girl .
She was once a host of one of the most popular shows in Nigeria Moments with Mo however she left after a while and also Studio 53 where she started from. Speaking on why she left both she said;
“Leaving Studio 53 Extra was a tough choice because it was my first job in Nigeria but it was a right decision. I spent three years learning a lot about TV presenting and production. It was time for a different sort of challenge. I also left Moments with Mo because I started my own show and there was no way I could be involved in both programmes at the same time. I have been working on other shows for five years and I have always had my own vision and it was finally time to bring my vision to life.”
Starring in Jacob’s Cross, Saro the Musical and starting my own production company which has created employment opportunities are a few of my highpoints. One of my memorable acting roles was in the play Iya-Ile (The First Wife), produced by Soho Theatre/the Tiata Fahodzi Company in the United Kingdom. The stage piece was written by award winning playwright, Oladipo Agboluaje, who was also behind the short film, Area Boys, shot in Lagos. This play was nominated for the Most Prestigious British Theatre Awards, The Lawrence Olivier Award in the Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre Category.
