The media personality and a trained lawyer, who was among those that participated in the first edition of the BBNaija show in 2006, has been hosting the show since 2017.
Recall that some Nigerians had earlier called on BBNaija’s organisers to consider a Nigerian radio and television on-air personality, Ikponmwosa Osakioduwa or Frank Edoho, Nigerian broadcaster and filmmaker, as Ebuka’s replacement for the sixth season of the show, but the organizers have decided to stick to the Ebuka who had been used to the lovers of the show.
Auditions for this year’s edition of the show commenced on May 3 and scheduled to end on May 16
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 huge prize of N90 million compares to last year’s N85 million won by Agbelesebioba Olamilekan, popularly known as Laycon.
