BBNaija does not guarantee success, says show host Ebuka

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, host of BBNaija, said the show does not guarantee instant success. He revealed this during a conversation with Temisan “Taymesan” Emmanuel on a recent episode of “Tea with Tay.”

According to him, it is difficult to get out of it because the housemates undergo an entire session with psychologists before appearing on the show.

He noted that it’s done to properly prepare them in case they end up not succeeding after the show as they envisioned.

He said: “Before the housemates come on the show, they have a whole session with a psychologist before introducing themselves. There’s a ‘preparation’ like ‘You know you can get into this thing and that’s what could happen’.

“At this point, you still believe it can never be me. You have to be a bad businessman to be on this show and not make it. That’s what everyone says. Ah-ha! Just give me a week. I’ve had people tell me,

“Ebuka, I swear to God, whatever I need. If I don’t finish you people….

“And I’ll say, ‘What sets you apart from those other people?’

He added: “I’ve had people mention specific names asking what these people are doing that they can’t do too. And I’m like, no. It doesn’t work that way because the industry will swallow you; together. Besides, you don’t want to be famous and broke. It’s the worst thing that can happen to someone in life.
