Ebuka Obi Uchendu is one of the most popular names in the TV industry right now, as he is the current host of the Big Brother Naija TV show, which is currently in its fifth season. Lots of other MCs and Show hosts would definitely wish they were in his shoes. Here are some that we think may kill for the role;
- Frank Edoho
Frank Edoho used to be the host of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, an MTN sponsored TV show that ran in the early part of the 2000s. The show was the most popular TV show in the country at some point, making Frank Edoho incredibly famous.
- IK Osakioduwa
IK Osakioduwa is the only show host who has hosted three editions of the Big Brother Africa when the show was still running. He’s a popular Nigerian host and started his career at rhythm FM in 2001.
- Soni Irabor
Soni Irabor is a veteran broadcaster and media personality who is married to Betty Irabor. He hosts the Soni Irabor Live show and he is also a good fit for the Big Brother Naija show and maybe the perfect person to steal Ebuka’s spot. He currently works at Inspiration FM.
- Teju Babyface
Teju Babyface is one of Nigeria’s pioneer corporate MCs, comedian, and show host. He’s popular for The Teju Babyface show which was mildly popular in the early 2000s.
- Kemi Adetiba
Kemi Adetiba is a renowned filmmaker famed for her movie, King Of Boys; she was the host of Maltina Dance Hall for four consecutive seasons and will definitely be a good host on the big brother Naija show.
- Benjamin Joseph
Benjamin Joseph is an actor and TV show host who rose to fame for hosting MTN’s Project Fame Show which was one of the most popular shows in the country for a long time.
- Stephanie Coker
Stephanie Coker is a seasoned, award-winning Nigerian presenter and the host of Airtel’s The Voice. If Big Brother Naija ever considered a female host for the show, then Steph would most definitely be the best bet.
- Daddy Freeze
Daddy Freeze is one of Nigeria’s most talented and controversial radio hosts. He’d probably kill for Ebuka’s role as it’ll give him a transition to transition from radio to mainstream television.
- Helen Paul
If there’s any Nigerian woman who has made her mark in the Nigerian Television Industry, it’s certainly Helen Paul. She’s an actress, singer, comedian, compere among many others and will be a perfect host for the Big Brother Naija show.
Bovi is arguable the funniest stand-up comedian in Nigeria, he has been for a long time. He also freelances as a show host on the side and has hosted Nigeria’s biggest music awards, The Headies once. He will also be an exemplar candidate for the big brother Naija show host.
