Every year, Big Brother Naija opens up its doors to contestants from all over the country to participate and compete in a bid to win millions of naira. Every year we get entertained by these housemates, we get to know about their lives, and we feel even bonded to them. But despite their long number of days in this house, we still never know them completely and it is always fascinating to learn new things about our favorite housemates. Today, I’ll be counting down for you SEVEN BBNaija housemates that you may not know have celebrity relatives. I dug deep, I have done my research, and I cannot wait to share this list with you. 1. Neo and Venita Akpofure 2020 BBNaija Lockdown housemate, Neo Akpofure is related to 2019’s BBNaija Pepper Dem housemate, Venita Akpofure. Because of the shared last names, it was immediately obvious that there is a relationship between the two but most people didn’t know what kind of relationship it is. Some people think their siblings, others think they’re cousins. Neither party has come out to disclose the exact type of relationship they share, but Venita did share a video of her and Neo cruising around in a car, so they definitely know each other and have some type of connection. 2. Uriel and Charlyboy Big Brother Naija Season 2 contestant, Uriel disclosed in an interview with The Punch that veteran musician Charly Boy is her uncle. She spoke about him saying: Charly Boy is my uncle and he inspired me in a very huge way. I was encouraged by what he had achieved with his entertainment career. However, I wouldn’t say that anybody really paved the way for me in the entertainment industry. I struggled for everything and where I am now. I made sacrifices like everybody else, and it took me about 10 years to get to this spot. Meanwhile, this is nowhere close to where I want to be. I believe I still have a long way to go. 3.
