7 Nigerian Celebrities That Appeared In The Big Brother Reality Show

February 23, 2017

1. Uti Nwachukwu

This actor, presenter and TV host won the whooping $100M price only after appearing on the Big Brother SHowtwice in 2008 and 2010 respectively.

2. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu

He was that laid-back hottie from the first editipn of Big Brother Naija. Although he didn’t win, Ebuka has definitely slayed our lives as a talk show host and media personality.

3. Gideon Okeke

Like Ebuka, Gideon who was also a contestant on Big Brother Naija, didn’t win the competition but currently has AMCVA awards to his name for his acting prowess.

4. Karen Igho

This media personality who happened to be the first Nigerian woman to ever emerge the winner of a Big Brother Africa reality show was definitely the most talked about person of 2011. We wonder what she’s up to these days.

5. Tayo Faniran

Although he was the Nigerian sweetheart during the show, most people felt Tayo was cheated when he emerged the runner-up during the 2014 edition of Big Brother Africa. Currently, this budding actor is working his way to the top, featuring in a handful number of Nollywood movies including the never-ending Africa Magic TV series, Tinsel.

6. Katung

After winning the first Big Brother Naija show, Katung clearly did not stop to enjoy his cool millions. He pursued his interests as a film-maker and even bagged a degree from the Digital Film Academy in New York – he is already working on his first feature film, ‘Heaven’s Hell. On top of all that, this film producer currently holds the position as the senior channel manager at MTV Base.

7. The dearly departed Goldie Harve

In case you didn’t know, Goldie briefly appeared on the Celebrity edition of Big Brother Africa in 2012. Sadly, this award-winning musician died only a year later in 2013, after a sudden illness.
