Known for his role in the launch of MTV Base as MTV’s first localized channel for Africa, Okosi has been recognized by New African in its list of “50 Trailblazers Under 50”.
Created to celebrate 50 years of the OAU/AU, the “Trailblazers” feature identified individuals who are “breaking ground, making Africa proud and propelling it into a future of great hope.”
Okosi, 38, was listed alongside notable names from the fields of culture, politics, economics, business, sports, fashion and philanthropy including US President, Barack Obama; footballer, Didier Drogba; actors, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron; and fashion designer, Ozwald Boateng.
Responding to the recognition, Okosi said  “I am tremendously honoured to be named alongside some of the most impressive and visionary individuals in Africa and further afield, who like I, are working in their different spheres to create a bright and promising future for the continent.”
Three years after launching MTV Base, Okosi went on to launch Nickelodeon Africa, a 24-hour Nickelodeon service for African kids, followed in 2011 by Comedy Central, a non-stop comedy channel for Africa. Okosi continues to develop VIMN’s brands including MTV, MTV Base, VH1 Classic, BET, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, across the region on multiple media platforms.
In November 2008, Okosi achieved a personal and MTV milestone by launching the first ever MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) in Abuja, Nigeria, in celebration of contemporary African music and artistes worldwide.
