Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host of Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye, claimed he was surprised when BBNaija critics circulated death rumors about him.
This revelation was revealed by the show’s host during his sign-out interview, during which he discussed his experiences as a host on the show.
Although the Shine Ya Eye presenter had received death threats in the past, he had never seen an obituary of himself until this season.
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.”
From the second season of BBNaija in 2017 until the just ended sixth season, Ebuka served as the show’s host.
He was also a former housemate on BBNaija, where he was the seventh candidate evicted from the show’s debut season, which aired in 2006.
