5 BBNaija Housemates On Other Reality TV Shows

The Big brother Naija show is arguably one of the biggest reality Tv shows in Africa and is also responsible for producing one of the biggest stars on the continent. For most who have been through this melting fire, the experience and exposure are more than enough, but for others, it is just the launching pad into the crazy world of reality stardom.

5 BBNaija Housemates That Are on Other Reality Tv Shows

This article will discuss 5 BBNaija housemates who have gone on to other reality shows other than the BBNaija show.

 To start of this list we will have;

Mercy Eke

As most BBNaija viewers know, just months after winning the 4th season of the Big Brother nail show, Mercy Eke launched her own reality show, ‘Mercy & Ike’ with the Clyde to her Bonnie, Ike Onyema. While on the show, Mercy and Ike found love in each others arm while still chasing the money. Many viewers swooned over their love and took this relationship personally, noting for the couple to end up together.

As the events unfolded, it dawned on the shippers that that ship sunk even before the end of their show that ended after the first episode, by the way.

The show led the viewers into their lives as reality Tv stars individually and as a couple. The highs, the lows and the in-betweens gave an insight into how they navigated their love and life.

Ike Onyema

Spinning off the first mention is Ike Onyema, who was the co-star of the Mercy & Ike show. Many may believe that Ike was on the sidelines during the reality show seeing that the only member of his family that got on the show was his cousin, which is a big difference compared to his colleague, Mercy, who had her sister, friends and aunties.

Although it seemed that Ike was not very interested in showcasing himself, the viewers were able to gather tidbits of him building his business and brand as a blogger, photographer and entrepreneur.


Walking in the shoes of his predecessor, Laycon, who won the 5th season of the BBNaija show, had his limited reality show with 10 episodes that were aired on Showmax first. The aim of this reality show was more to give the teeming fans an in-depth view of Laycon as a brother, friend and artiste as opposed to just a reality star that almost became the bedrock of his brand.

It featured his brothers, record label mates and the entire power team that stood behind Laycon. Some of his BBNaija colleagues like Vee, Lilo, Ozo and Prince in some episodes. The show was aired in about 50 countries, attracting an even bigger international fanbase for the rapper.

 Erica Nlewedim

The star girl has joined the league of BBNaija housemates who have gone on to star in other reality tv shows. Erica Nlewedim has garnered a massive fanbase, and from her activities, since being disqualified, it is obvious that she turned the odds in her favour.

Her reality show, Inside Life with Erica, is set to air on MTV Base on the 9th of June, 2021 and judging from her tweets, and behind the scenes shots, it promises to be interesting.

Venita Akpofure.

Another Big Brother Naija PepperDem Housemate that is taken on the world of Reality tv again is Venita. The entrepreneur and mother of 10 is set to star in a new reality show featuring four other Nollywood actresses like Mimi Orijekwe, Grace-Charis Bassey and Nuella Njubuigbo. The show is an original of Honey tv and was made to showcase the seemingly underrated Hollywood actresses to the world.

Taking a cue from the slogan of her season in the Big brother House, Venita promised the viewers a good and dramatic time.

Honourable Mention.

Katrina ‘Ka3na’ Jones 

The self-acclaimed boss lady made it to the list but not quite seeing that her reality show was cancelled in the month it was to premiere. The show, ‘Keeping Up With The Jones’, centres on her family consisting of her and her little daughter, Lila. She did not mention if it will include her British husband, but that would not matter now, seeing that the show would not be making it to our screens for now.
