The #BigBrotherNaija 2019 kicked off tonight with twelve housemates battling for N60 million worth of prizes as announced earlier by the organizer, M-Net West Africa.
The housemates would be staying at the Big Brother House for the next eleven weeks to entertain TV viewers across Africa and beyond.
At the launch, Popular media personality, and host of the show, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu ushered the housemates into the #BigBrotherNaija house with the edition themed: “Pepper them”.
Here are the next housemates so far out of 21 housemates that will make you stay glued to your TV screen all through the 11 weeks:
Nelson Allison, Mr. Universe Nigeria 2018, is single and looking. When he is not consulting or modelling, he enjoys sketch drawing, working out, watching movies and cooking.
If he were a world leader, he would ensure that both the poor and the rich had equal opportunities. Nelson believes that it’s not over until the fat lady sings.
What irritates you most about other people: Lies and dishonesty.
What will you do with the prize money: I will take care of myself and start a business.
Why will you be a fan favourite: I’m creative, passionate, cheerful, warm-hearted and humorous.
Psychotherapist, fitness coach and “part time stripper” Tuoyo loves working out, reading books, watching movies, listening to his favourite musicians Davido and J Cole and cuddling (even though he is single).
Although life has been good to this energetic 23-year-old, not being shortlisted for an important Navy and Airforce entrance examination left him staring at an uncertain future. Luckily, a shot at fame and fortune on this season’s Big Brother Naija has given him another shot at making his dreams come true.
What irritates you most about other people: Gossip and body odor.
What will you do with the prize money: Open a therapy institution and a lounge.
Why will you be a fan favourite: Because I am very entertaining, I am a solution provider, a good listener and a like-able person.
Lagos resident, Isilomo Braimoh is single and ready to mingle. An HR manager at 27, Isilomo has an MA in Human Resource Management with professional certification.
She winds down from her hectic job by engaging in sports, outdoor activities, food, music and travel. A lover of all things music, her favourite songs are currently ‘Middle Child’ by J.Cole and ‘Daz How Star Do’ by Skiibii Dazz.
What irritates you most in other people: I hate it when in an argument or debate, a person stops putting out their opinion in a clear and concise manner. I also dislike it when people are sluggish about things. Thirdly, I don’t like people who don’t take responsibility and hold themselves accountable for their actions.
What will you do with the prize money: I will invest in myself as a brand, invest in any kind of Capital Market Instrument, kick start my media career (by going for training) and go on a long ass holiday with my sisters.
Why will you be a fan favourite: I think I call it like it is, and I think I have a realness that Nigerians would see and appreciate. I’m also quite funny in a not so obvious way – my friends and family think I’m insanely hilarious. I’m interested to see if the audience will feel the same.
