Ebony Boadu replaces KLP as triple j House Party host
triple j has announced that Ebony Boadu is the new host of Saturday Night program House Party.
Boadu replaces long-time host KLP, who left the public broadcaster at the end of 2018 after five years of service.
The new host is an exciting talent, and at 23-years-old has hosted on FBi Radio, SBS and MTV over the past few years.
She grew up in Western Sydney listening to her parents’ Afrobeat and reggae collections and was turned onto electronic music listening to House Party back when it was hosted by Nina Las Vegas.
in 2017 Ebony applied for FBi’s Dance Class, a mentorship program where young women learn to DJ and present radio.
Since then she’s rise up the ranks of Aussie DJs, culminating in recent sets at Splendour In The Grass and Falls Festival.
“When one of my mixes got played on triple j last year, it was a really big accomplishment for me,” she said.
“To now be hosting a weekly show where I can share music with people all over the country is super surreal. When I DJ, I aim to play sets that are as creative and as fun as possible, and there’s no better place to do that than on triple j’s House Party.”
Ebondy Boadu takes over House Party for the first time this Saturday, January 12, from 6pm-9pm.
