Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has reprised his role as the host of reality TV show, Big Brother Naija, for the show’s 2018 season.
Ebuka is himself a product of the show, having participated in the show’s 2005 season. He hosted the show’s comeback season this year very well, and was announced again by the Regional Director, M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu.
Mba-Uzoukwu said: “We are thrilled to have Ebuka return as host of Big Brother Naija. This was the platform that unearthed his potential first as a housemate and then as a host, ultimately launching him to stardom.
“He is a prime example of what the Big Brother platform offers, as he has proven over the years to be one of Nigeria’s biggest names in pop culture and entertainment whilst also lending his voice to youth empowerment initiatives. Fans and viewers alike are familiar with his cool, debonair and witty, on-air and on-stage personality… They are guaranteed to enjoy the excitement that he brings to the Big Brother Naija show,” she explained.
Auditions for the show have already taken place, with crowds turning out to compete for a place in the finale.
