Femi Fani-Kayode, ex-minister of aviation, has endorsed Jackie B to win the sixth edition of the Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show. 


Jackie B, an interior designer and wedding planner, is one of the 22 housemates jostling for the show’s N90 million grand prize.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode called on the public to support the 29-year-old single mum from Adamawa state.

He also revealed that the reality TV star is daughter to Grace Bent, former senator representing Adamawa south.


Speculations had earlier swirled shortly after her foray into the house over whether she is the former senator’s daughter.

But Fani-Kayode confirmed the claim in his post, while he described the former lawmaker as her “dearest sister and friend.”

“I fully endorse Jackie B who is the daughter of my dearest sister and friend senator Grace Bent! Please vote for her!” he wrote.


Bent represented Adamawa south between May 2007 and May 2011 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The season six edition of the show, dubbed ‘Shine Ya Eye, has started garnering momentum, after a seemingly slow start.

Biggie, the instructive voice behind the show, had earlier introduced an interesting twist called the ‘wildcards’ for this year’s edition.
