Fake Big Brother Naija housemate Jon Ogah has teamed up with Adekunle Gold and Simi to release his music video titled ‘Uncle Suru’.
Jon Ogah who was the winner of the first GLO Naija Sings released his first single “Gbedu” featuring popular Nigerian rapper Sasha P In November 2014.
‘Uncle Suru,’ which was initially released in 2014 and remixed with Adekunle Gold and Simi in 2017, was written for his senior in high school Suru, who inspired him to begin singing in church and later to take on music as a career.
He died in 2014 after a Book Haram car bomb was set off in church, where he was an usher.
“‘Uncle Suru’ is a letter to that senior, letting him know that I am chasing my dreams and even though its hard I won’t give up,” Jon said.
Jon ogah won Glo Naija sings when he was 18 and went away with $100,000.
Big Brother Naija star, Tokunbo Idowu, popularly known as ‘Tboss’ has revealed plans to begin a career in acting as well as hosting a radio show which she hopes to develop into a television programme.
According to her, she is currently gathering content for the show, attending a couple of auditions and she has received a lot of scripts which she has been screening.
The former BBN housemate said this on Channels Television, while sharing her experience in the house as well as outside the house, since the show came to an end.
“I am overwhelmed, completely overwhelmed.” According to her, there has been so much love and she would rather focus on the love, rather than on any form of hate.
Reacting to the issue of an alleged sexual harassment by Kemen, a former housemate who was later disqualified from the show following the incident, TBoss expressed utter disappointment, adding that the decision by Big Brother was the best option.
“I considered Kemen a friend. He was my go-to guy and my buddy, he encouraged me, he motivated me and he pushed me to mingle more with people especially at times when I didn’t feel like I fit in. So, for what happened to have happened, and just knowing all the people that look up to me, it was sad.
“I was angry, humiliated and I did feel violated but, I don’t play the victim card and I honestly feel that the decision that Big Brother took, was the only Decision that could have been taken.”
The ‘See Gobe’ edition second runner up, who was asleep in the same bed with Kemen, when the said assault occurred, stated that she was unaware of any such thing until Big Brother called her attention to it the following day hence; she did not assent to it and whatever happened was not mutual, as initially suggested by Kemen.
She also stated that initially, her reaction to Kemen would have been to slap him if she had her way, but on getting out of the house, she realised that anyone could make mistakes, especially as she considers herself an attractive person.
However, she equally expressed displeasure over the fact that according to her, Kemen has been granting several interviews in which he has been making contradictory statements.
Also reacting to an article titled ‘Big Brother Naija – Television As Madness’, written by a renowned Journalist, and a former Special Adviser to the Nigerian President, Mr Reuben Abati, who specifically body-shamed Tboss, she described it as sad and unfortunate, especially coming from a man of such calibre.
The Big Brother star, has however chosen to remain on the brighter side of life and embrace all the love she gets from the ‘Boss Nation’, as her fans are fondly called.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, has asked the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate the circumstances surrounding the reported shooting of the ongoing Big Brother Nigeria Reality Show in South Africa.
In a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister said the NBC should determine whether Multi-Choice, by shooting the show in South Africa, has breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code in any way, as well as the issue of possible deceit, since the viewing public was never told that the event would be staged outside Nigeria.
”As a country of laws, only the outcome of the investigation will determine our next line of action,” he said.
While expressing concerns that Nigerians have bombarded his office with calls to complain about what they regard as an anomaly (of shooting outside the country a show meant for Nigerians), he requested that they should remain calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings.
