Then: Benjamin Quddus Philippe, the Canada-born MTV VJ known as Quddus, got his start as a co-writer and host of the Canadian pop culture show ‘Vox.’ He made his American television debut on ‘Total Request Live’ in 2001, joining the ensemble of young VJs who were brought in to fill the void left by Carson Daly’s departure. Quddus also pulled hosting duties on ‘MTV Hits,’ ‘MTV Does Miami’ and ‘TRL Presents: Christina Stripped in New York City.’

Now: After walking away from MTV in the mid-2000s, Quddus continued his career as a television personality elsewhere. In 2008, he hosted the Nickelodeon reality show ‘Dance on Sunset.’ Then in 2012 he played MC to the short-lived game show ‘Duets.’ Now Quddus has moved into making his own content, which you can check out at The Q Side.
