Bisola music career also receive rival as she released some singles and video under The Temple Company, On March 22 ” Good Old Days” was released including a music video.

4. Mike
Mike gained the attention of lovers of BBNaija when we noticed a married man in the house and he was so proud of his marital status with a promise not to break his marital vows. His stay in the house which included the sexy Tacha and Mercy did not make him close to break his marital vows which led him to the final, the Olympia also was loved for his real accent and his own version of Teni’s hit song “Case’ made him more popular that NURTW Lagos chairman, Oluomo requested to see him after the show.

The Cigar boss performed with Teni at the Headies 2019 to sing Case, on October he walked on the runway of Lagos Fashion week . He covered two magazines in 2019, Genevieve and Savvy before he signed an endorsement deal with premium beer brand, Budweiser with Mayorkun to join former BBNaija host and former housemaste, Ebuka.

Bambam unarguably will be among any list of top BBNaija housemates of 2019 because apart from her wedding she had alot of activities in the year . Bamike started 2019 with her acting role in Queen Moremi The Musical before signing an endorsement deal with Jumai, Oppo Nigeria, Fayrouz, Sapphire, One Africa Music Fest.

She acted in some movies such as The Foreigners god, The Gift, Fela and the Alakuta Queens, The Bling Lagosians, Jagagba.

The very first BBNaija traditional wedding was held in Ogun state on September 8 while the white wedding was in Dubai on November 6. She also announced her pregnancy days after the white wedding with Teddy A, the love story of Bamteddy was also televised on African Magic, the creator of BBNaija. Some people regarded the Bamteddy wedding as the wedding of 2019.

http://www.bbnaijahousemates.com can confirm that Bam Beauty oil boss also created BBP Express

2. Mercy
Mercy is no doubt one BBNaija housemate that did gave the audience what they wanted and she did not over do it, after trying in auditions for 4 years she finally did not only make it to the BBNaija house but also set a record to become the very first female BBNaija winner.

Mercy fans has grown bigger even at the end of the show as she is one of the 2019 most booked celebrities for interview, she also created rivalry with Tacha fans as both housemates went head to head in the house.

Just after receive 30 million naira cash and other gift items as the winner of BBNaija 2019, she was also given a house by Victoria Homes that open doors to other endorsement deals like Royal hairs, Mr Taxi, Ciroc, Up Front and Personal, Mapia Tea, One Africa Music Fest, SIMS Nigeria, Just Furniture, Crafts Method Limited .

While Mercy was in Dubai for the One Africa Music Fest, the hotel, V Hotel she lodged in with Ike noticed her and their room package was upgraded to the most expensive hotel room in the hotel, Mercy later attended Bamteddy weddings during her stay in Dubai .

Mercy was the most fashionable housemate in the house and she is becoming a fashion icon in the entertainment industry, on 22nd of December, Mercy launched her clothing line, MnM Luxury.

1. Tacha
Port harcourt self claimed first daughter was the very first pepper dem housemate to be popular for the good and bad reasons, she always disagree to some decisions that other housemates are cool with, Tacha boycotted several inhouse activities or tasks because of personal reasons which her fans were happy about.

The internet was on fire when Tacha stylishly insulted the host of the show, Ebuka during the Sunday eviction show and the word characteristic became something else, Tacha had issues with almost all the other housemates which resulted into strikes and later the heated argument between her and Mercy that made her the fourth BBNaija housemate to be disqualified from the show after Kemen, Khloe and K. Brule.

We cant talk about Pepper Dem without mentioning the name Tacha, her fans increased during the show and they questioned the credibility of Biggie after her disqualification, some Titans (Name of Tacha fans) even crowned her as their BBNaija winner. Her disqualification cause several issues such as Tacha been kept away from her fans, Tacha not allowed to grant interviews to media outlets and several videos and voice notes were posted on social media platforms.

Tacha posted a video to calm the tension coming from her Titans as she refused to talk about what happened behind closed doors after her disqualification. She was so fast to start accepting brand endorsement deals as the pressure must have been much considering the vast fan base that she possess, Teebillz signed Tacha into his talent management company, Billz Vision but they later parted ways in December.

Tacha is a brand ambassador to these brands/companies, House of Lunnete, Dabota, GetFit, Ciroc, Royal Hair. She launched her clothing line on January 11 2020 with Don Jazzy endorsement. Her visit to Ghana was huge and can be compared to a music star as we await her UK tour in march .

Politics / Kogi State Holds Maiden Christmas Carol by metronaija: 3:49pm On Dec 22, 2019
For the first time in the history of Kogi State, Lugard House, its seat of power played host to a large number of Christians who congregated there for a Christmas Carol. The service held Saturday at the newly built Government House Chapel.

Since the state was created nearly thirty years ago in 1991, the Government House has been without a place of worship for Christians. But the current Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello, a Muslim proved skeptics wrong when he embarked on building the chapel.

The excitement on the faces of worshippers knew no bound as the electrifying music from various Church Choir attracted wild jubilation and ecstatic dancing steps from the worshipers.

The carol, a service of nine lessons, saw the denomination of churches united by their choir group, singing melodious songs to mark the birth of Jesus the Christ. It was followed by the reading of Bible lessons by clergymen and top government functionaries.

The Kogi State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, Bishop John Ibenu in his sermon, said Christmas calls for getting closer to God. He read from the Holy Bible John 3 vs 16 and 1st John 3 vs 5, noting that Jesus came for the salvation of man.

Ibenu lamented that the hearts of man is daily becoming wicked, and said the building of the government house chapel is for man to get closer to God. He described sin as a sickness that has Jesus as its only cure.

In his remarks, the Kogi State Deputy Governor, Chief Edward Onoja, described the maiden edition of the Christmas carol held in the government house as a dream made possible by the commitment of Gov. Yahaya Bello.

He described the coming together to celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ in the Government House Chapel as the beginning of a new dawn for the people and assured that with prayers, the state is set to be the envy of other States.


Travel / NIDCOM Receives 2 Nigerian T/tennis Players Detained In Bosina by metronaija: 12:03pm On Dec 22, 2019
Nigerian Table Tennis players detained in Bosnia-Herzegovina refugee camp in Croatia, have returned home, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) said on Saturday.
Abia Uchenna and Eboh Chinedu, both students of Federal University of Technology Owerri, returned to Nigeria late on the night of Dec. 20.
The two students were officially received by the Secretary of the commission, Mr Sule Bassi, who represented the Chairman/CEO of NIDCOM, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
The chairman welcomed the students back home and asked them to narrate their ordeal in Croatia, so that some lessons would be learnt from their story and most importantly for Nigerian youths to hear and learn from it.
Dabiri-Erewa also urged Nigerian students to always be of good behaviour wherever they found themselves by obeying the laws of the country they were visiting.
She commended the Federal Government through the Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr Geofrey Onyeama, the Nigerian Ambassador to Hungary, and all mission staff for the humane and prompt response to the plight of the two Nigerians.
After narrating their nasty experiences in the hands of Croatia authorities, the two students said: ”First of all, we want to thank NIDCOM for the kind gesture they have shown us and the citizens of this great country Nigeria when we were passing through the challenges out in the foreign land.
“We want to thank especially Mama Diaspora in the person of Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
”She is indeed a mother – someone that Nigerians in diaspora could depend on.
“The way she spoke to us on telephone from Nigeria when we were in camp in Bosnia was very encouraging,
”We cannot thank her enough, she provided hotel accommodation and feeding when we arrived here in Abuja,” they said.
They applauded the quick intervention of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Hungary, and all Embassy Staff in Budapest.
NAN reports that the duo of Uchenna and Chinedu arrived Croatia on Nov. 12, to participate in the fifth World Inter Universities Championship, had visas granting them the right to stay until Nov. 18, 2019.
The InterUniversities organisation confirmed that the original copies of the visas issued by the Croatian authorities to both students was valid at the time of their detention.

The pair, left Pula for the Croatian capital, Zagreb, after the tournament and were supposed to fly to Lagos onNovember.L

“The night before our departure, on the Nov. 17, we checked out from the hostel and went for a walk in Zagreb,” Chinedu said in an interview “Suddenly, we were stopped by the police who asked us for our identification documents.

“We tried to explain that our passports were in the hostel and that we had a regular visa, but they paid no attention to what we were saying .”

The officers allegedly mistook them for undocumented immigrants, put them in a van and transferred them to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina where, that day, Croatian authorities had gathered a group of migrants who were intercepted as they were attempting to cross the country.
