Ladies and gentlemen, meet the winner of Big Brother 2017. Ejeba Efe Michael, popularly known as Efe Ejeba or simply Efewho won the 25 million Naira, as well as a new KIA Sorento.
During the show, the Efe was never afraid of anyone, was not shy, and always knew his worth. He had a lot of attention and interests received when he tried to start a romantic relationship with another housemate, Marvis.
He became a frequent visitor of television programs, narrating, how he won. Efe now lives in Lagos. He likes to cook, which was his advantage on the show.
The activities of the graduate of the Faculty of Economics are now focused on music. He says that he wants to add flavor to the rap and create something completely new, unusual, something that the whole world will love. Efe released a few singles that immediately blew up all the music charts. One of them was even recorded with Olamide. The most successful songs are: “Warri” ft Olamide, “Based on logistics” and “I love you.”
One of the finalists was the famous Marvis, who captured the attention of the audience and the winner of the show Efe with her beauty. She was the tenth finalist but did not manage to get to the final and left the show.
Despite the fact that the girl behaved quietly on the show, in life she has a rather hot-tempered character.
After the show Big Brother, Marvis went into music as well, she released her official and quite successful single "Vibe." It didn’t blow the musical hit parade like the singles of her screen boyfriend, but it was also popular. At the moment, she is engaged in her personal clothing line Nahsodotcom.
Soma is one of the few participants who almost immediately left the show. He was the first to be evicted from the house.
He did not have a special temper or quarrels in the house, but he was nevertheless remembered for his relationship with Gifty.
Summing up all his actions in the show, we can say that the man left a trace in the heart of every viewer, it was interesting to watch him. He called it “Telemundo kind of drama” and promised viewers that they would like him.
After participating in the famous show, as befits the son of a musician, Soma went into music. He had several successful and loud performances that supported his fame after the show. But it was already a completely different glory.
Soma made his debut as an actor in the hit series "Jenifa’s Diary."
After Soma left the Big Brother show, Miyonse was the second to depart. At that time, the guy was 24 years old. The audience remembered Miyonse for his culinary skills. To say that he cooked wonderfully means to say nothing. It seems the flavor of his food came through the screens. So you wanted to stretch and take a piece.
One of the reasons for his departure from the show was a controversial relationship with TBoss. Other participants even say that it was she who influenced his departure.
After the project, Miyonse was not left without attention. He began to engage in cooking actively. Miyonse set a goal to become the best chef in the country, and we are confident that he will succeed.
Miyonse is now Indomie and Ajinomoto brand ambassador.
Coco Ice was the third participant to leave the Big Brother show. The viewers remembered the incredible beauty of the girl not with her stunning appearance, but with shocking acts. For example, the game of truth or action plunged all residents of the house into shock, or instead, Coco’s deed. We only saw some moments, but imagine what had happened behind the camera.
Ice has always been bold and courageous, therefore, it is not surprising that she was not afraid to commit fearless acts. She remained an eccentric personality for all viewers.
Now, Coco Ice is diligently engaged in her musical career. The girl has released her first successful single titled "Feeling My P" immediately after leaving the show.
As for personal life after the show, Coco knew the failures in romance. All her relationships ended in brake-ups. This was a very emotional change for Ice, after which she decided to focus only on her musical career. According to Coco Ice herself, she used to be much more emotional, but now she is trying to control herself.
Now, she works very hard to achieve great success. She constantly disappears to practice, trains her voice and dreams of becoming a great singer.

Gifty became the fourth participant to leave the Big Brother show. It happened on February 19, 2017. She also did not confirm her relationship with Soma officially, but thanks to them, viewers began to talk about her.

Gifty says that her mother became her source of inspiration, that it was she who taught her manners and how to communicate with people. She received her femininity and grace from her mother. People say that Gifty is in a relationship with Mr. 2Kay, but she denies this connection.
Uriel was remembered by all the viewers for her beauty and dramatic relationship with Biggie. The girl is spontaneous, passionate and brought up by nature, as she says. Uriel was born in England but moved to Nigeria, where she began her way to recognition and success.
Uriel loves to cook, apparently, because another participant Miyonse influenced her. But she hates cleaning after the cooking process. Uriel says she likes to consider herself the master of the organized disorder.
After leaving the show, the girl's life changed absolutely. She launched her vlog and later opened a London Wig store in Lekki. But after a while, she realized that all this was completely not what she wanted to do because Uriel returned to music. She blew up a musical hit parade with the single "Desire."
