Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host of Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye, has revealed in a statement that he was shocked and taken aback at the moment of hearing about death rumours which lasted, about him.
During his sign-out interview, he opened up, on his experience as a host on the Tv show while reflecting on certain issues that come with it.
Despite earlier death threats waged against him from naysayers, the BigBrothernaija Season 6 presenter claimed that before this season, he had never seen an obituary for himself.
Ebuka said, “Something very spooky happened. I’ve gotten death threats in the past but for the first time ever, I literally saw an obituary of me, where someone said Ebuka died in a fire, and that confused me.
“It’s like they’ve gone from wishing me dead to saying I died. So that was a new low for me.
“And it was very very shocking. So I don’t know if I generally had more trolling but I actually saw a moment that was different from the past.”
Ebuka hosted BBNaija from the second season in 2017 till the sixth season, which just finished.
He was also a previous BBNaija housemate but was evicted from the house as the eighth contestant from the show’s first season, which aired in 2006.
