Saturday, 24 May 2021, saw the announcement of the eleven men who would be staying in the Big Brother House, with the eleven women due to be revealed tomorrow. Here is a quick look at the Big Brother Boys for 2021.

After weeks of speculation, Big Brother finally unveiled this Season’s theme and introduced Africa to the first batch of BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Housemates – and yes, your eyes are not deceiving you; they are all gents!

Don’t worry though, the ladies will be revealed during the second Live Show tomorrow (Sunday 25 July).

Get to know the gents better below:

BOMA

Full name: Boma Akpore

Raised by his single mother and grandmother, 34-year-old Boma grew up on the streets of Yaba in Lagos. He describes his childhood as “extremely tough”, having had to pay his way through school. One of the hardest decisions he had to make was to drop out in his final year, as he couldn’t make ends meet, but his life’s high point came when he saved enough money to pay for film school, an achievement that was subsequently eclipsed by his graduation.

Boma describes himself as “sexy, intelligent, adventurous, strong and fit”, and considers himself “extraordinary”.  While hustling on his acting career, he makes ends meet by working as a bartender by night, and a masseuse by day.

Having suffered bouts of depression after his marriage failed and after suffering an injury during football try-outs, he is determined “never, ever, to give up” and holds onto his faith.

CROSS

Full name: Ikechukwu Sunday Cross Okonkwo   

Lagos-based Cross is a fitness enthusiast and entrepreneur who describes himself as “a bad boy with a good heart”. Although single, this 30-year-old is not afraid to dole out the relationship advice and believes people don’t know that communication is the key to successful relationships.

When he is not watching movies, travelling or clubbing, you will find Cross playing drums or being hype on the mic on an Amapiano or House track or two.

He sees himself as fun-loving, spontaneous and a good dancer who wears his heart on his sleeve.

EMMANUEL

Full name: Emmanuel Umoh

The first Nigerian to win the Mister Africa pageant, Emmanuel hails from Akwa Ibom, but currently resides in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where owns and runs a fitness centre and a unisex salon and spa.

A self-described risk taker, this 24-year-old loves to travel, connect with people and try out new and unique ideas. Emmanuel believes in making the best of every opportunity, and he counts his physical and social attributes as advantages that garner him a lot of attention.

Currently single, he describes himself as a “sucker for love” and believes “a healthy relationship goes a long way to building one’s life.”

JAYPAUL

Full name: Paul Ephraim

Jaypaul, a 29-year-old Lagos-based musician and actor, believes the Big Brother Naija House will be the perfect opportunity to help boost his fledgling career in the Nigerian entertainment industry. In his own words, he is “entertaining, confident, playful, honest and friendly”.

His hobbies include making music, making movies, dancing and cooking. While his career means a lot to him, Jaypaul believes in strong family bonds. He considers being a son to an amazing mother and brother to two wonderful sisters as his best roles to date – and it’s no wonder that losing his father was one of the lowest points of his life.

Jaypaul believes he is a catalyst for a chain reaction of positive activities and wants to show this to the world.

NIYI

Full name: Adeniyi Lawai

Niyi is a 33-year-old computer engineer from Oyo State. Though he was once in the running to be a professional basketball player, that ambition was quickly quashed when he sustained an injury, leading to sciatica.

With a sense of Dennis Rodman about him, he still loves to play basketball and work out, and is adventurous when it comes to new food, and enjoys both eating and cooking it. He is also an avid reader, aspiring writer and is fond of playing board games and card games – he even has a gaming license.

A husband and father, Niyi describes himself as “optimistic, spontaneous and adventurous”, while others describe him as being energetic.

PERE

Full name: Pere Egbi

Born in Warri, Delta State, Pere was raised by a single mother and is the firstborn of two children.

He believes change is the only constant in life and describes himself as “a spontaneous, adventurous person”. Pere is a qualified nurse and served in the United States military for six years, before coming back to Nigeria to pursue a career in real estate. This vibrant 35-year-old is also a part-time actor and model.

He is attracted to things of high value and is motivated by his past, and – as an empath, he hopes to use his experiences with pain to help heal others. He enjoys dancing, playing games, writing, bar-hopping and water rafting.

SAGA

Full name: Adeoluwa Okusaga

Originally from Lagos, 28-year-old Saga is currently based in Port Harcourt as an offshore engineer, though he has found a new passion for sketch drawing and has become celebrated for his hyper-realistic portraits. He decided to turn his efforts to practicing art after being amazed that his work could draw powerful reactions from people.

Besides drawing, his hobbies include dancing, singing and exercise. That last passion has led him to start an online fitness club that has members from all around the world. He tries to light up any room he’s in with a few jokes and believes his travels to practically all the regions of Nigeria have given him experience relating with people.

The lowest point in his life was being informed that his mother – who he describes as his best friend – passed away.

SAMMIE

Full name: Samuel Jacob Alifa

Sammie is a 26-year-old amateur filmmaker and final year student at Ahmadu Bello University.

He enjoys storytelling, videography, basketball, eating and hanging out, and describes himself as “tall, handsome and charismatic”. He admits he talks too much at times and sometimes ends up gossiping because of the “great dialogue” he gets in his day-to-day conversations. That said, Sammie loves meeting new people and believes he has a bright future in filmmaking.

In 2020, he produced his very first short film and now has his sights set on growing his YouTube series and taking his career to the next level.

WHITEMONEY 

Full name: Hazel Oyeze Onou

Multitalented Whitemoney describes himself as an open-minded “jolly good fellow” who likes to have fun. His hobbies include driving, hustling, watching movies and making music. The 29-year-old Lagos-based businessman and entrepreneur, originally from Enugu State, believes he has a great aura and that his “swag speaks for itself”.

The highest point of his life so far happened recently, when he kick-started his designer shoe-import business. Down to earth, yet strategic – Whitemoney is hoping his bright outlook on life will take him far.

While in the Big Brother Naija House, he would like to entertain, have fun, get exposed, and possibly win the ultimate prize.

YERINS

Full name: Yerimene Abraham Saibakumo

Medical doctor Yerins describes himself as “a perfectionist, creative genius, lover of art and poetic rap music”. He sees himself as a renaissance man who isn’t confined to one profession or career.

The 27-year-old enjoys drawing, playing chess, listening to – and making – music. He also has plans to write a medical book soon. He identifies himself as a fun-loving, creative and curious person, and he says his curiosity has helped him garner expert knowledge in many fields, from modelling and digital animation to fashion design.

The high point of Yerins’ life was when he graduated from Medical University in the Ukraine and finally got to see his parents for the first time in 9 years.

YOUSEF

Full name: Yusuf Garba

Yousef is a 29-year-old Secondary School Teacher who describes himself as a “soft-spoken, fun-loving, down to earth go-getter”. Apart from being a big food enthusiast, Yousef enjoys hiking, reading, traveling and sports.

He is also a model, host and personal trainer and confesses he can’t resist checking himself out in the mirror. Yousef counts winning the Mr. University of Jos and Jos Carnival King titles as the highest points in his life, while the lowest was when he lost his beloved aunt.

Fans argue why Wizkid doesn’t engage his fans like Davido

Fans of both Wizkid and Davido argues on why Wizkid doesn’t engage his fans like Davido

Davido is generally regarded as the cruise master and respected for his time for his fans. He gives so much more than just music according to his fans.

Some on the other hand claim that although Wizkid drops Monster hit jams every now and then, he is generally a boring artist.

Few days ago, Davido called out some of his colleagues and fans to celebrate his birthday for him with a sum of N1million. In less than a day, he realised over N100million in just cash transfer.

Fans argue why Wizkid doesn't engage his fans like Davido

This achievement started the argument….

See below…

You expect Wizkid that just finished a month tour in Us & about to start a three day show in Uk to come and be catching cruise like the other guy that hasn’t done anything in a year!! Lmfaoooo biggest joke

It’s not about catching Cruise, the reason he has a successful tour is because he has fans who are listening to his music and spreading the news about his music.

If he can’t engage them often, then he doesn’t rate them enough.
