Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has emerged as host for Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) season six. This makes it his fifth consecutive year anchoring the reality TV show.
The media personality and lawyer took to his social media page to break the news on Monday 10th May.
“Well, guess who’s returning as the host of the next season of #BBNaija. Let’s go again guys,” he captioned the post alongside a clip of himself from a previous edition.
Ebuka, who participated in BBNaija’s debut season in 2006, has been hosting the show since 2017.

The development comes less than two months after some Nigerians had called on BBNaija’s organisers to consider Frank Edoho, Nigerian broadcaster and filmmaker, as Ebuka’s replacement for the show’s sixth season.
Auditions for this year’s edition of the show commenced on 3rd May and scheduled to end on 16th May. Early access auditions for the show held in March for only MultiChoice customers on DStv and GOtv platforms.
This year’s winner of the reality show will go home with a grand prize of ₦90 million, the highest ever since the inception of BBNaija.
Olamilekan ‘Laycon’ Agbeleshe won last year’s edition of the show. Laycon received ₦85 million worth of prizes. He received the grand prize of a cheque of ₦30 million, a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) from Innoson Motors, and a luxury two-bedroom apartment by Revolution Properties.
