As viewers gear up for the return of Big Brother Naija, MultiChoice Nigeria has unveiled media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu as host for the reality TV show. The former housemate will make a re-appearance at the reality show’s revival but this time as the host.
This time around, it will be the role of the lawyer turned media personality, with his infectious laugh and charismatic persona, to usher the housemates into the Big Brother Naija house and will take up the task of announcing the evictees week after week.
“We are particularly excited to have Ebuka as host of Big Brother Naija. This was the platform that unearthed his potentials and propelled him to stardom,” said John Ugbe, Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria. “He has over the years grown to become a prominent face on the Nigerian pop culture and entertainment scene while also lending his voice to youth empowerment initiatives. We believe his cool and debonair personality combined with his healthy dose of wit will spice up the show. Our viewers are in for a great entertainment experience,” Ugbe said.
Speaking on the programme, Ugbe said the return of the show is one of the ways the company is enhancing the quality and variety of content available on its platforms, assuring that the show has been well developed, following the successes of past seasons of Big Brother Africa.
“Big Brother Africa was popular for its entertainment value and ability to showcase ordinary Africans from different walks of life. We decided to re-invent the reality show once again by bringing back the Nigerian version which we are confident will draw pan-African audiences for the same reasons that Big Brother Africa did,” Ugbe explained.
