Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has announced he will be hosting the much anticipated reality show Big Brother Nigeria season 6 (#BBNaija).
The popular TV host and former housemate took to his Twitter and Instagram to reveal he will continue to occupy the Big Brother Nigeria stage as the host for the upcoming season 6.
“Well, guess who’s returning as the host of the next season of #BBNaija,
“Let’s go again guys,” he tweeted Monday night.
The disclosure was of great relief to his fans and some viewers of the show as some online agitators had launched an unplanned campaign weeks ago suggesting the host should be replaced with popular Who-Wants-To-Be-A-Millionaire presenter, Frank Edoho.
“Ebuka don eat small, make him allow another person chop! Frank Edoho as BBNaija host for this season won’t be a bad choice tho. Eviction night go choke gan!!!” A Twitter user said.
However, Mr Edoho swiftly shut down such suggestions. He quipped: “What did Ebuka Obi-Uchendu do to deserve all this? Why would you want to change someone that has done a show successfully for only three years and have him replaced with one who did WWTBAM for 13 years? Leave Ebuka alone! Please.”
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu started hosting the show shortly after his participation as a housemate in season 1 and has thrilled viewers with his ability to either formant suspense at eviction shows, stir up commotion with tough questions during interactions with housemates or adorning gorgeous, trendy wears. He has a remarkable fashion sense.
Though the date for the commencement of the season 6 of the show has not been announced yet, adherents are warming up to be thrilled by live actions from housemates. A grand total winning worth N90 million awaits the winner of the edition.
