The big brother’s house is originally known as a platform to bring people to limelight. It is also the most popular show currently going down in Nigeria.
Since its inception in 2006, the show has created a limelight platform for over 100 people.
However, only a very few have made use of this opportunity to further their careers in the show business.
Today, we bring you five most successful Big Brother Naija housemates since its inception.
When we talk of succees, we don’t just talk about money, we talk about a gross advancement in career.
Venita has actually succeeded since leaving the house in 2019.

She subsequently runs a modeling/event staffing agency called 234nextgen. In the coming years, she looks to own a Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, and become a philanthropist.
Dropping back to back tracks really isn’t enough to consider one as successful, but when it comes to leveraging on the limelight given by the house, Laycon has been on point.
Laycon had dropped an album in April 2021, and it’s tracks are still bursting brains amongst youths.
With this, he makes it to our most successful list.
Well not everyone who steps into the limelight is destined to be an entertainer.
For Miracle, limelight is obviously not his thing as he has become a pilot.
It’s not easy to leave an already built limelight, being the winner of the 2018 Big Brother Naija.
In his case, we consider him pursuing his dreams a huge success for Miracle.
He was a Television producer before his stint at the big brother house in 2019.
After finishing 8th position, Elo capitalised on this platform and has gotten a host of Ambassadorship deals.
He has also landed himself major roles in various movies.
That makes it our five most successful housemates in the house.
Doesn’t mean that other former housemates are not successful.
The likes of Mercy, Efe who just realized an album, and Dianne have also made good news for themselves outside the house.
This might come as a shocker to most people who didn’t watch the Big Brother Naija show at its inception.
