Uti Nwachukwu

Perhaps, the most recognizable face among the Nigerian winners of the BBA is Uti Nwachukwu. He is an actor, TV presenter, model and MC from Lagos and LEADERSHIP Newspapers' Young Person of the Year 2011. Best known as one of the 12 housemates on the third season of Big Brother Africa, in 2008, he returned to Big Brother Africa in 2010 as one of the 14 "All Stars" of Season 5, entitled Big Brother All Stars.

Uti holds a two-year diploma in Computer Science and Education from the University of Nigeria. He now co-presents on Jara, a TV programme with comedienne Helen Paul.

Karen Igho

Big Brother Amplified winner Karen Igho in 2011 smiled all the way to the bank with the top prize of $200,000 as winner of the coveted reality TV show alongside her co-winner Wendall. She was the first woman from Nigeria to win the Big Brother Africa show and the third Nigerian to win it in a row since 2009.

Karen now works with Naija FM 102.7 on a show called Wetin Dey, which she co-hosts with Ifektive.
