Meet the Host

  • Kike Ayodeji

    Kike Ayodeji is a Nigerian American actress born and raised in Maryland, where she fell in love with storytelling as an art form at a young age. As a young girl, she would borrow tons of books from the library to read her way into a euphoric world where the characters became real and relatable. This love for the art of storytelling and imagination would spill over into her adulthood and sparked her passion for acting. 

    Throughout her acting career, Kike has been blessed to be featured in several short films, plays, and commercials. Recently she appeared in the award winning, Abbott Elementary as a Young Teacher. Another notable project she appears in includes the Emmy award winning short, Riverment. Last year Kike won her first award, "Best Supporting Actress" for her emphatic performance as Katie in the short film “Ms. Davis' Close Friend”.
