Popular Nigerian TV host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, has revealed that he will return as the host of Big Brother Naija season six reality television show.

He shared the news on his verified Instagram page by posting a picture of himself looking dapper in a suit and wrote in the caption section, “Well, guess who’s returning as the host of the next season of #BBNaija. Let’s go again guys!!!”

Big Brother Naija, formerly known as Big Brother Nigeria, is a reality competition television series, based on the Big Brother television franchise.

The show began to air in Nigeria on March 5, 2006, and its main presenters were Olisa Adibua and Michelle Dede.

However, the show was put on hold till January 22, 2017. When it resurfaced, Obi-Uchendu, who was a contestant in the maiden edition, became the host of the show. He holds the position to date.

Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, a Twitter user suggested that Obi-Uchendu be replaced with Frank Edoho — an 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!!!”(sic)
