(oooh guys, I know you had all forgotten that I still have a blog here but I'm sure BB addicts will welcome this comeback....lol)
Sorry MNET, seeing that you guys are inviting everybody else to the BB house except me, I thought the best way to get back at you is to spoil your lil' surprise lol.
I'm not always this nasty, only when I don't get what I want....which, in this case, is to spend a night in the Big Brother House!!!!!!!!
*in my best Jennifer Hudson voice*
♫ Biggie, One night only, One night only ♪
The name is Ikponmwosa Osakioduwa
Don't worry, he calls himself I.K so that's all you gotta remember!
How do I know he's the new host?
Well, I got my sources....
Well, I was 99% sure and then I went on Twitter to search for his profile and his ONE AND ONLY (where is One & Only by the way?), umm..sorry...I meant, his ONE AND ONLY TWEET on August 14th made me 100% sure!
How sure am I he's the one?
Now come on Africa, we can't have our BBA host having only 62 followers, start following so that by the time the show starts, he's at least got a few more nyana shem...heheh.
So, who is this I.K? Well, you can start by checking out his TVSA Profile HERE....
Apparently dude is a Presenter for Studio 53 in Naija, he hosted Temptation Nigeria 2-3 years ago on Mnet (with Kemi Adetiba) and is currently also a DJ on the Lagos based radio station, Rhythm 97.3 FM.
While we wait for the "official" announcement, here are a few Fast Facts about I.K, the new Big Brother Africa host...tl tl tl :
1. I.K got married in 2008
(almost ended that with a "sorry ladies" but I'm not sure if he's THAT cute)
I hear his wife gave birth to a healthy baby boy last week Friday so CONGRATULATIONS on the new babatjie, Mr Host of BBA4! 2. In 2007, JUICE, a magazine in Naija named him "The Next Big Thing On TV"...how right!
3. Word on the street is, (in other words, two unrelated people have told me that... ) given his relationship with Mnet, dude didn't even audition! Well, IF that is true then shame on them for putting all those other peeps through auditions whereas they knew from the word go ukuthi bafuna bani...!
4. The people of my home Nigeria seem to like I.K. coz I've read only good things about him.
5. Here's a 2008 interview he did with ModernGhana.com LINK
6. Oh, and if you wanna hear his voice, check this out... LINK
Sjoe, enuff gossip for one night, I SO hope I'm right!
Big Brother Africa: The Revolution
Hope this lil article won't get me banned from the launch :-)
starts on DSTV Channel 198 on Sunday, 6 September 2009 @ 19:30!
Congratulations to I.K on getting the gig and massive, massive respect to KB Ngakane for holding it down for two seasons.
Nigeria rules Big Brother (hence NO shower-hour) so it was only a matter of time before we had a Nigerian host.
*waits for the thunder & to be misunderstood*
I hope after I.K's tenure we'll have one from Ghana, Kenya etc. It belongs to the continent after all. Big Up I.K, I don't know you but will be supporting you and I hope the rest of the continent will do!
P.S. Mnet, I'm not doing anything on Friday night *wink wink*
Hello bloggers! I have missed the place!!!!!!!!!
