Former Big Brother Naija housemates which include BamBam, Nina, Teddy A, Rico, Ifu Ennada, Angel, Bitto, Dee-One Vandora and Princess, turned up for a weekend event in Warri and they all came through with their fashionista sides.
Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty Powers, had few months ago shared her thoughts on the 2018 edition of the reality show tagged, ‘Double Wahala.’ Gifty also boasted that 2017 season was the best since the commencement of the Big Brother series in 2003.
She wrote, “Big Brother Naija 2017 (see gobbe) was the best and will always be the best of them all, including Big Brother Africa, which was decades ago.”
According to Gifty, the show does not deserve to be called ‘Double Wahala;’ rather, it should be called ‘I have connections.’
“This is not called ‘double wahala’, this is called ‘I have connections’ and I can go wherever I wanna go with what I have. Shake My Head”, she said.
The inaugural edition of Big Brother Nigeria reality show hit the TV screens 12 years ago. It was aired on DSTV channel 37 from March 5 to June 4, 2006. As the first reality show from this popular Big Brother franchise solely dedicated to the Nigerian market, it was fresh and exciting.
The hosts of the maiden edition were Olisa Adibua and actress, Michelle Dede. The reality TV show set the tone for Nigerian pop culture and also gave room for similar programmes to thrive. Big Brother Nigeria originally had 12 original housemates: Frank, Ify, Ebuka, Chinedu, Francisca, Gideon, Helen, Ichemeta, Joan, Joseph, Maureen and Yinka. Katung and Sandy would later enter the house as wild card entries.
At the end of the three-month stay in the house, Katung Aduwak emerged winner –he got the $100,000 prize money.
