    The problem is that we don't know all the housemates that took part in the first edition of Big Brother Nigeria but among these five that you've posted here, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is my favourite. So Biggie how about you post all the housemates that were in BBNigeria season 1 so we also get to know them.
