BERLINDA ADDARDEY

by Brenda

Today’s woman crush #womeninspire is none other than Ghanaian media personality and voice artist, Berlinda Addardey popularly known as Berla Mundi.

Berla and I met some years back at Jay Foley’s studio in Osu. She was personable but particularly up about her work, recording voice overs. We exchanged pleasantries and then it was back to business. There was just something about her that rubbed on you.

The Berla Mundi brand is one of the many brands I admire for all the right reasons. The first is that Berla is such a delight to watch on screen, and since TV is about the look and feel, she certainly brings a refreshing TV experience to her viewers. Secondly, she has carved a niche for herself with her versatility. From the days of hosting Miss Malaika, the Late Afternoon Show and Covid-19 360, Berla has shown that she can fit anywhere. This is interesting because many viewers like me witnessed the journey right from the beginning.

Berla began her media career after becoming the second runner-up at the 2010 Miss Malaika beauty pageant. She worked with GHOne TV, on Rhythmz Live, Gliteratti and The Late Afternoon Show. She also hosted the Starr Drive on Starr FM, Miss Malaika, MTN Hitmaker and Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Berla enriched our TV viewing experience with her compelling interviews and endearing personality. Her transition from EIB Network to Media General also marked another phase of her career. Berla brought so much to the media landscape when she cross-carpeted. She changed the face of morning TV which used to be filled with a lot of political rants with no substance. She beat viewers to it by asking the relevant questions.

Berla currently hosts The Day Show, New Day, and Election 360 on TV3. She has worked on some major platforms including the Columbia University African Economic Forum, European Union–Ghana Business Summit, Ghana UK Based Achievement Awards, Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and Exclusive Men of The Year Awards Africa.

Berla’s natural proclivity to inspire led her to found the Berla Mundi Foundation in 2015 to cater and educate under-privileged children in society, by providing convenient conditions for learning and educational materials. In 2017, she went a step further to create ‘B.YOU BY BERLA MUNDI’, a mentorship and career guidance programme for young girls in Ghana, securing internship opportunities and media training for these young girls.

Berla also runs The Mundi Media Network, a Public Relations firm, with some young and creative minds to provide consultancy services for individuals and corporate entities.

Berla has bagged several awards and was named as 2018 Female TV Entertainment Host at the Radio and Television Personality Awards, Ghana’s Most Influential Young Media Personality and Most Influential Young Female in 2019 and the Young Star Award at the just ended Glitz Africa Women of the Year Honours 2020.

Today I celebrate you, Berla! Thank you for making an indelible mark in the entertainment industry and over the media landscape! Thank you for gracing our screens with such rich content on political and social issues! Thank you for mentoring young girls and giving them opportunities to shine! Thank you for using your voice for positive transformation! Thank you! Thank you for being a woman who inspires! #womeninspire #womancrushwednesday

Depending on yourself to make the decisions can really be upsetting and frustrating. It can take many people a long time to build a strong moral system. It doesnt really just happen if you know what I mean.
