As a result of the fame and wealth associated with participating in Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija), the reality show has become highly coveted by Nigerian youths. For many of them, getting into the reality programme has become a fight to finish.
Since its debut in 2006, the reality TV show has produced quite a number of successful housemates now calling the shots in their different career paths.
The likes of Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Tacha, Mercy Eke, Laycon, Cee-C, Ozo, White Money are testimonies of the platform’s potential of taking people from relative obscurity into prominence.
Like other editions, this year’s season six titled ‘Shine Ya Eye’ left several memories in its wake.
But how have the edition’s finalists fared about three months after the show ended?
TheCable Lifestyle examines what some of the show’s season six finalists are up to since October 3.
The ever-good looking Mr Africa not only caught our attention with his good looks while this year’s edition of the show lasted, his ‘ship’ with Liquorose in the house was one of the fans’ favourite memories.
Since the show ended, Emmanuel, who is the CEO of Hairlab Salon in Port Harcourt, has returned to the runaway and is currently touring the world of fashion.
Angel Smith was one of the six finalists during the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ season. Although she is usually surrounded by a lot of controversies, the writer is doing quite well since leaving the BBNaija house.
She has bagged ambassadorial deals with companies like Jenny’s Glow Skincare and GetFit Nigeria.
Angel also recently acquired a Range Rover sports utility vehicle (SUV) while she is set to drop her book next year.
Pere Egbi was one of the most-discussed housemates during BBNaija’s sixth season. Since he left the show, his acting career has received a significant boost and he has starred in a couple of Nollywood movies.
He is also an ambassador to many brands such as BOZ jewelry, Binance Africa, Dstv, VSP Botanics, and Le eldera perfumes.
Also a BBNaija season six finalist, Okonkwo Ikechukwu Cross was one of the biggest ‘vibes’ of the show. He portrayed a fun and interesting personality while in the house.
He recently released his single titled ‘Feeling Funky’ where he featured Ajebutter. It comes as he also signed an ambassadorial deal with Binance Africa.
Although the 26-year-old was known for being a dancer/entertainer before her venture into the Big Brother house, Liquorose also brought the vibes and positive energy to our screens.
Liquorose, whose real name is Afije Roseline, recently signed to Play Management Africa and is the face of brands like Deshapeables and Kippa Africa. She was also the cover of recent issue of The Will Downtown Magazine.
White Money, fondly called ‘Onye Eze’, was crowned the winner of the BBNaija season six.
The entrepreneur, born Hazel Onoduenyi, was a delight to watch during the show due to his personality and culinary skills. The 29-year-old often describes himself as a jolly good fellow.
He has continued to blaze the trail since he won the show. He recently came through with ‘Selense’, his first single after the show.
He earlier bagged a chieftaincy title in his hometown Udi, Enugu state, and was also named the ambassador for creative arts in the state by Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor.
He appeared on the cover of Uncutxtra magazine and is the ambassador for Binance Africa, GoTv, Jenny’s Glow Nigeria, GetFit NG and the Africa Women’s Impact Summit.
Maria Chike Benjamin was one of the most-controversial BBNaija season six housemates. Her eviction in the third week came as a shock to many fans of the show.
But she has been pulling the strings since then. Maria is the face of many brands such as Hushd Nigeria, DSTv, GetGlow NG, and Luscious virgin hair.
