Nigerians watching Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) have called for the replacement of the reality game show host, Ebuka Uchendu-Obi.
This occurred barely a day after the organisers of the controversial show, Multichoice Nigeria, announced early auditioning for the season 6 edition which also has its grand prize pegged at 90 million Naira.
On Friday afternoon, Nigerians on twitter space made a campaign against the current show host, Ebuka, who was also a contestant at the first season of the reality game show, suggesting popular Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host, Frank Edoho, as the new face they want to see in BBNaija’s next season.
One of the tweets that went viral from a twitter user 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.
Responding to the campaign on twitter, Edoho who hosted Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for 13 years rejected the offer, saying that he’ll be returning to television as host, however, not on BBNaija.
He also said that he wondered what Ebuka had done to deserve the call for his replacement after he had successfully hosted three editions of the reality game show.
Edoho said; “what did Ebuka do to deserve all this? Why would you want to change someone that has done a show successfully for only 3 years and have him replaced with one who did WWTBAM for 13 years? Leave Ebuka alone! Please”.
