Ovie Soko

Ovie Soko

By Laura Whitmore + Mags Creative

Today’s episode welcomes the very first Love Islander into the Castaway ranks - the brilliant Ovie Soko! Ovie captured the hearts of the nation on Love Island and since then he’s modelled, started his advice-driven podcast ‘Ask Ovie’ and still finds time to play professional basketball for the Shiga Lakestars in Japan. 

Naturally, Ovie brought some brilliant podcast suggestions to the table, including the food based Off Menu, sharing how the hosts reacted to some of his questionable choices when he was a guest on the podcast. Ovie also divulges his love for ‘Who We Be Talks’ and chats about the important role the podcast plays in promoting the best in Black British music, fashion and culture. Laura and Ovie also found time to talk about podcasts stateside, the business savvy ‘Earn Your Leisure’ and the captivating conversations that unravel on ‘Drink Champs’. An episode full of Castaway firsts today!
