The Big Brother Naija reality show is surely the biggest platform in Africa right now that could provide you instant fame.
Majority of the ex-Housemates that have graced the show before the show were relatively unknown people but while in the house established themselves as extremely famous people. E.g Efe, Miracle, Ceec, Mercy, Laycon, Vee and many more.
Meanwhile, there are loads of musicians who have been grinding really hard in their various crafts in the media for years but have fame that is not as huge as what the ex-BB Naija housemates have.
The third paragraph has inspired the creation of a list of Nigerian celebrities that deserve more fame than ex-BBN housemates.
1. Skales: Definitely one of the most hard-working artistes in Nigeria. Skales started with Wizkid in 2010 and since then has continuously dropped jams upon jams for all to dance to. Some of his songs have proven to be hits, but his face and personae have not. He should be more popular than any ex-BBN housemate, no doubt.
2. Reekado Banks: An embodiment of talent is who this young man is, however, he does not command the pulling power some of the ex-BBN housemates command. Social media-wise, he isn’t even as powerful as the BBN stars which originally shouldn’t be because his growth in the entertainment industry has been down to sheer diligence.
3. Sean Tizzle: The “Shole” crooner had his fame for only about two years but it never should be that way. For someone who gave us one of the finest music albums in Nigerian history, Sean Tizzle should still be popping hard. Imagine having Mercy, Ike, Tacha, Laycon and the likes having more influence than Sean Tizzle. It’s a shame!
4. Korede Bello: The Mavin singer’s fame was instantenous and huge, however, it faded out quickly. KB has one of the biggest singles (Godwin) in the history of African music and still deserves to be a force to reckon with. But how can it go well for him in terms of fame when Big Brother is creating yearly very big stars?
5. Vector: Although still loved by many, Vector does not have the influence of some of the stars BB Naija has produced. Do you want to compare Vector’s influence with Tacha’s, Mercy’s, Laycon’s? Never. These new BB Naija stars are now bigger as they command even bigger fans bases than what the Nigerian rapper has.
For someone who is arguably the finest rapper Nigeria or Africa has ever seen, should any BB Naija ex-housemate, whatsoever, be bigger? No!!!!
