#BBNAIJA: See 5 ex-housemates who become popular despite not winning the show

While it is good to become the winner of the Big Brother Naija reality show, but winning is not everything as some ex-housemates became popular without winning.

It is true that all the housemates in the just concluded Big Brother Naija lockdown show and other editions wanted to win. But at the end of the day, it is only one person that can only win at a time.

For the 2020 lockdown show of the Big Brother, Laycon has emerged the winner and there is nothing anybody could do about it.

Infact, the voting pattern for the night was something else as Laycon got about sixty percent of the total vote, leaving about forty percent for the other five contestants.

But in this article, we want to look at two Ex- housemates of the just concluded show and three from other editions who have become popular despite the fact that they did not win the show.

So, I decided to add two of the lockdown housemate to the list because they have started getting endorsement here and there.

Bisola Aiyeola

She is an actress, singer and she was the runners up of the show in 2017.

She was so popular and eventful in the house and won a lot of other things but she didn’t win the show.

After the show she has won a lot of endorsement and she is still trending till today.

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu

He is one of the most popular former Big Brother Nigeria housemates because for some season now, he has become the host of the show.

As the show continues, his popularity will continue to soar and has gotten a lot of endorsement and deals.

Recall that he didn’t win the show, as a matter of fact, he finished 8th position.


Tacha was disqualified from the PEPPERDEM house, but before her disqualification she has been able to get a huge fans base.

She was tipped to win the show before her disqualification. But since coming out of the show in 2019, she has gained more popularity and more success.

Her case should also be an example to the other two people I want to mention below because they have also become popular since coming out of the show.


Erica has continued to trend on social media despite being disqualified from the lockdown edition of the Big Brother’s House.

She has started getting endorsement and with the popularity she has gained, she can leverage on it and become greater and bigger.


Kiddwaya, the son of billionaire Terry Waya was so popular since he entered the show and has continued to be popular now after the show.

Recently he got an endorsement with one of the top hotels in Nigeria.

So in all of these, winning the show is not the only good thing as people who become popular from the show will equally make good success without winning.
