Screen Kings: Pearl Candy – A graduate of Geography and Regional Planning from the prestigious University of Lagos, Pearl Hart or Pearl Candy as she is often called in not your average presenter. Her ever smiling and ever bubbling personality has a captivating prowess with which she succeeds in holding her viewers spell bound.
Born Pearl Hart in the 80’s, Pearl is a Rivers State indigene but had her upbringing in Surulere – a place she visits every weekends as a point of duty except for weekends when she is out of the country or engaged on official assignments; her family house is in Surulere.
Although the last child of her parents, Pearl had learnt to be contented and independent at an early stage in her life prompting her to engage in activities that could earn her extra cash. At age 15, Pearl featured in a couple of Nigerian movies using her acting skills; she decided to concentrate on modeling when she got into the university. While in her sophomore year in the university, she attended an audition organized by SoundCity and was amongst the few selected; she went on to becoming one of their presenters. Presenting became a new hobby for Pearl coupled with her dramatic nature and interesting personality, she excelled quite well and hosted some major events even as a newbie.
Combining presenting and studies became quite a huge responsibility on her shoulders so she opted for the latter; she paused her TV career to complete her education and when she was done quite surprisingly, SoundCity still opened the door to let her in – apparently because of her talents.
Coming back to SoundCity further expanded her creative abilities as she has been able to successfully host a couple of TV talk shows amongst which are Top Ten Count Down, City Divas and Rap Attack which all shows her versality as each programme is totally different from one another.
Pearl’s fashion sense is also imbedded into her TV shows which habitually have her dressing according to the context of the programme. While she is flexible in her dressings, she also likes to be comfortable and wont cross the fashion line to impress others without being comfortable herself.
