Former BBNaija housemate and Media personality, Ebuka Obi Uchendu is set to return as host of the annual Big Brother Naija show, season six.
Ebuka who made the disclosure on Monday on his verified social media pages said he will return as the reality TV show’s host for the fifth time.
He shared a picture of himself looking dapper in a suit with the caption, “Well, guess who’s returning as the host of the next season of #BBNaija. Let’s go again, guys!!!”
The revelation came a few weeks after a Twitter user suggested that Frank Edoho should replace Obi-Uchendu as the show host.
The Twitter user had made a case for the established presenter, who hosted the popular TV game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, for 13 years.
The tweet read, “Ebuka don eat small, make him allow another person chop! Frank Edoho as BBNaija host for this season won’t be a bad choice tho. Eviction night go choke gan!!!”
However, the suggestion sparked a debate, which was finally laid to rest by Edoho via his official Twitter handle.
He tweeted: “What did Ebuka do to deserve all this? Why would you want to change someone that has done a show successfully for only three years and have him replaced with one who did WWTBAM for 13 years? Leave Ebuka alone! Please.”
