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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 seems to be facing his career as a DJ full on. From all indications, he doesn’t have time for anything else.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Apart from a music video and cameo appearances in other songs, Cocoice has remained relatively quiet.
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.
Fake housemate number one also delved into music and apart from his single featuring Simi and Adekunle Gold, little has been heard from him.
Fake housemate number two went back to a budding career in Nollywood starring in a number of released and yet to be released movies.
