Neo, ex-housemate at the Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show, has been gifted a brand new Mercedes Benz car as a birthday present by his fans.


The reality TV star clocked 27 last Thursday and was celebrated by friends and family members on social media.

On Sunday, fans of the reality star — dubbed the Neotribe (TNT) — surprised him with the car gift and a cheque of two million naira to also mark his birthday.

Omawumi, a Twitter user, said Neo, whose real name is Emuobonuvie Akpofure, also got other gifts from his fans aside from the car and money.


“I’m so happy! Neo’s… fans gave him a Mercedes Benz with N2m! Plus other many gifts! Neo was already so happy with all the gifts he got earlier in the week and sending appreciation messages etc, this is major surprise for him,” the user wrote.

Neo was one of the popular figures during the ‘Lockdown’ edition of the show held last year.

While the show lasted, the spotlight also beamed on him over his relationship with Vee, his colleague.

TheCable Lifestyle had reported how he had sparked a frenzy on social media after he washed the panties belonging to Vee.


Vee had earlier penned a lovely note to celebrate him on his birthday.

“Happy womb escape dearie! No long talk, you already know what it is,” she had written.
