SocialMediaTrends: Ebuka, Frank Edoho, Nancy Isime – TwitterNG debates on host of next BBNaija



The social media space was abuzz on Friday as fans of Nigeria’s biggest reality TV show, Big Brother Naija advocated for a change of the show’s host, Chukwuebuka Obi-Uchendu, popularly known as Ebuka.

Giving reasons why Ebuka who had hosted the show since 2017 deserved a ‘break’, many rooted for actress and media personality, Nancy Isime as well as popular TV host, Frank Edoho of the defunct ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ show as possible replacements.

28-year-old Nancy who hosted the 14th Headies Award alongside stand-up comedian, Bovi in January 2021 had stunned viewers as she became the first female to host the award event for the second time in a row.

Some folks have however argued that Ebuka had been an outstanding host for the Big Brother Naija show, adding that calls for his replacement was nothing but a conspiracy.

Frank Edoho, in a tweet decrying sudden calls for Ebuka’s replacement also wrote,

“What did Ebuka do to deserve all this? Why would you want to change someone that has done a successful show for only three years and have him replaced with one who did WWTBAM for 13 years? Leave Ebuka alone! Please.”

The development is coming days after BB Naija organizers announced audition dates for the 6th edition of the show.
