Addictions are often a closely guarded secret.

TV Host, Lerny Lomotey is breaking the ice with a new video to encourage people to share and seek help for the addictions they are battling.

She shares her addictions and talks about the steps she is taking so she gets better at life.

Lomotey is the host of ‘The YOLO Hangout,’ a teen oriented talk show that airs on TV3 on Saturdays.

In spite of several setbacks, she never gave up on her childhood dream of joining the media until she achieved it.

At age thirteen, she auditioned for a presenting gig with TV3 but didn’t make the shortlist because she wasn’t 18 years old, a necessary requirement.

A year later, as a basic school graduate she walked into Sunny FM with the hope of getting a job but was turned down. She was however advised to frequently record and listen to her voice.

She gave another shot at joining the media after completing secondary high school – by trying to audition for a job with Y FM but was told there was no vacancy. Subsequent attempts yielded no results.

Lomotey got her media break after nine years of trying in 2015 when she joined Live FM as a national service personnel with the help of Broadcast Journalist Kafui Dey. During her stay at the Adabraka-based station, she worked as a producer, and also hosted a health segment on Lifestyle Café, the station’s mid-morning show.

She is currently the host of Oceans Entertainment Box which airs on Oceans TV on Fridays at 4pm and repeated on Saturdays and Sundays at 12pm.

A multi-talented person, she is also a Voice Over artist, and owns BlushStrokesByLerny, a Make-Up company she started during her final semester in University.

A six-week training from Black Secret Make Up School and a week training from Evolve Make Up Nigeria solidified her passion for the industry.

The likes of Berla Mundi, Jeremie Van Garshong, Regina Krave, Irene Logan, Semira Adams and Yvonne Nelson have benefitted from the magic wand of her make up kit. “…be beauty full,” her company tagline was inspired by the passion to see herself and others “beautified.”

She is a member of the cast of season three of Television series Heels and Sneakers produced by actress and movie producer Yvonne Nelson.
