BBNaija: Where are all the past winners?

The Big Brother Naija show has continued this year with the Shine Ya Eye edition.

Stars are expected to break out as usual from this edition, with the winner set to walk away with N90m.

There are still many weeks to go in this edition of Big Brother Naija, but as we continued to watch how things go, we want to recap the past winners of this great show.

In this piece, we throw back to all the past winners and where they are now.

Cinematographer/movie/TV series director

The first edition of the reality TV show was won by Katung Aduwak and had Gideon Okeke and Ebuka Obi-Uchendu as housemates.

After winning the first edition of Big Brother Nigeria, Aduwak decided to acquire more training in filmmaking and production.

He returned to Nigeria to start working on music videos and TV series.

A few years ago, he had an accident that almost claimed his life but he survived and after treatment, he returned to work.

He’s one of the most prolific directors in Nigeria with his hands on some of the series and TV shows on Africa Magic.



The show held in South Africa this time with the the theme, ‘See Gobbe’. The franchise had housemates like Bisola, Kemen, TBoss, and Efe, who went on to win the edition.

Efe endeared himself to Nigerians for identifying with the famous city of Warri despite living in Jos and tales of his humble beginnings.

He won the season to take home the cash prize of N25m.

After the show, Efe decided to pursue a career in entertainment with music as his forte. He has since worked with top music acts that include Olamide, Iceprince and BOJ.

Efe is still a budding music act and yet to break even.


After a successful second edition, the third edition also held in South Africa with the theme, Double Wahala.
