One year later: How have the Big Brother Naija 2017 contestants fared so far?

In a few days, another edition of popular reality show Big Brother Naija will begin. In this article, NAIJ.com chronicles how the 2017 contestants of the show have fared so far.

Who has surprised you? Who has earned your admiration? Who has been the most controversial? Who has been the most disappointing? Who has become a bonafide star? These are some of the pertinent questions this article asks.

Efe

Since a large number of Nigerians voted him as the winner of the show, the budding musician has disappointed the same people who voted for him. His career choice is the main reason for this. He has released more than five songs with accompanying videos; still he hasn’t won fans over. Well, he has a song with popular musician Olamide in the works perhaps that will change his fortunes.

Bisola

Perhaps the most successful of all the housemates, Bisola has soared since the show ended. Already a known name before BBNaija, her coming second has literally enlarged her coast. So far, she has starred in a number of movies and even released her first single to the delight of many.

Miyonse

In the week he spent in the house, Miyonse developed a persona many did not like following his dalliances with TBoss. But after his exit, he has worked on the low to create a career for himself as a TV chef. So far, it is working for him.

TBoss

By far the most controversial housemate, TBoss hasn’t stopped raising eyebrows. She has taken to a career as a ‘model’ appearing in countless photo shoots and she even starred in a music video. She also has an endorsement deal to her credit.

Marvis

Another housemate who decided to toe the music path, Marvis has stayed clear of controversy after her time on the show. She also launched a clothing line.

Gifty

The light skinned actress had already been termed fake by the majority of Nigerians and all she has done since the show ended buttresses that point. She has already been involved in a scandal regarding her marriage, her boyfriends and an alleged pregnancy.

ThinTallTony

Following the wahala that arose after it was revealed that he was a married man with two kids, TTT has maintained a low profile choosing instead to celebrate the same family he slyly denied while on the show.

Bally

Bally seems to be facing his career as a DJ full on. From all indications, he doesn’t have time for anything else.

Debbie Rise

The only housemate who seemed to be always working, Debbie took every advantage of her new found fame. She hit the road hard performing in all the geo political zones of the country and she recently just released her EP.

Uriel

Many suggested that Uriel continue her famous diary sessions and she listened. She created a vlog that shows bits of her life that a lot of people knew little about. She also got an endorsement with a company based on her love for cooking.

Bassey

The ‘fineboy’ of the house, Bassey also maintained a low profile after the show came to an end. He starred in several movies and he also released a song with his ‘sweetheart’ Debbie Rise.

Soma

Another housemate whose chosen career after the show largely disappointed many, Soma still insists on doing music. He also doubles as an actor appearing on a Funke Akindele produced TV series.

Cocoice

Apart from a music video and cameo appearances in other songs, Cocoice has remained relatively quiet.

Kemen

His disqualification did not stop him from moving on with his life. After apologising to TBoss for the unfortunate event, Kemen dove head on into his chosen profession as a fitness trainer.

Jon

Fake housemate number one also delved into music and apart from his single featuring Simi and Adekunle Gold, little has been heard from him.

Ese

Fake housemate number two went back to a budding career in Nollywood starring in a number of released and yet to be released movies.

To have more children is not a crime – 9ice speaks on allegedly welcoming fifth baby

It is no longer news that Nigerian celebrities do not care either they are married before having children. Majority have taken pride in becoming single moms and dads.

Such is the case of popular Nigerian music star turned politician, Abolore 9ice. It was earlier reported that the singer was allegedly expecting his fifth baby from his fourth baby mama, Olori Oluwayemisi, who disclosed to be a Lagos-based skin care expert.

Due to this report, 9ice has finally come out to deny all allegations. He made this revelation during a phone conversation with Ladun Liadi.

To have more children is not a crime - 9ice speaks on allegedly welcoming fifth baby
Singer 9ice

The singer said: “The reports are not true that I am expecting my fifth child from another woman. I have no idea where the report came from, but the truth is that in Nigeria, especially in Yorubaland, there is an adage that says that you don’t count a man’s children for him. To have more children is not a crime, but the sad thing is that people would believe what they want to believe. I am currently in the studio working on new songs and I am also promoting my new song ‘Ebami’ but no one would write about that. All they know is to peddle false news about me.

9ice’s 2008 marriage to Toni Payne produced a son, Zion while the singer also welcomed twin daughters from a brief romance with Abuja based lady, Vicky Godis and his fourth child, Michelle came from Olasunkanmi Ajala back in 2015.

Nice one!

It appears that scamming people most especially celebrities on social media seem to be on the high side in recent times. These people make use of celebrity social media accounts to demand for money from their fellow Nigerians.

Talented Nigerian music star turned Nollywood actor, Bankole Wellington, has taken to his Instagram handle to deny collecting money from people to be on his reality TV show ‘The Wellingtons.’

He disclosed that some people are using a fake account on Facebook to collect the sum of N5,000 from anyone who wishes to be on the reality show.

Adesua Etomi’s Father and Mother

Adesua Tolulope Etomi is a top Award winning Nigerian Actress whose wedding to popular artiste Banky W broke every social media platform (from Instagram to Twitter and even Facebook) with the hashtag #BAAD. Adesua Etomi is known for her roles in Knocking on Heaven’s Door, Gidi up, The Wedding Party and a host of others. Many wonder why her Brother gave her away at her white wedding in South Africa, the question on everybody’s mind was where was Adesua’s father on this glorious day of her life?

This led to more questions about her parents. Adesua’s parents have tried to stay out of the limelight and this will only make Nigerians more curious (Trust Naija people). Even though he was present at the Engagement, Adesua’s father’s Absence at the white wedding could not be ignored.

Adesua is born to an Esan Father and a Yoruba mother on the 22nd of February 1988. Her Father is a Soldier and her Mother is a civil engineer. Her mother is also reported to be a pastor in The Redeemed Christian Church of God in Coventry, United Kingdom. Adesua is the last child of her family’s 3 children. Her older brother Tosin walked her down the aisle at her white wedding to Banky W in South Africa.

Isn’t this family beautiful?

We think it’s safe to say that Adesua’s Parents, families, and friends have done a good job of not leaking any information; from not spilling about the proposal to little information about the parents, it was a hit back to back. They will make very good undercover detectives.
