Big Brother Naija season 7 premiered on Saturday, the 23rd of July, 2022, with the first batch of housemates making their grand entrance into the house.
Groovy, Beauty, Khalid, Ilebaye, Cyph, Amaka, Kess, Daniella, Pharmsam, Phyna, Bryann and Christy were the first 12 housemates to enter the Big Brother Naija season 7 level up house.
Meet the batch 2 housemates;
Bella was the first housemate who entered the house in her elaborate feathers and velvet gown. Quite the dancer, Bella promises not just entertainment but premium entertainment.
25-year-old Bella is a UNILAG graduate and content creator. She considers herself “a no-nonsense person who gets pissed off easily” and is competitive because she likes winning.
Bella admits most of her friends are male because she doesn’t get along with girls. “It always leads to jealousy and gossip,” she says, two things she tries to avoid at all costs.
What habits are most likely to irritate her fellow Housemates? “My bluntness. I am fearless, so I don’t sugar-coat my words. I tell it like it is, and people hate to hear the truth”.
Bella decided to sign up for Big Brother Naija because she wants to be rich and famous. “I do not ever want to introduce myself. I want to walk into a room and be recognised. I love a life of comfort and intentional happiness”.
Eloswag turned up sparkle-suited and confesses he is in no rush to get boo’d up because he has been “served his breakfast” a couple of times. “Besides, I feel relationships only work better if you have money”.
Eloswag is a 27-year-old digital marketer and content creator from Lagos. He loves to try out new things and feels Big Brother Naija is just the show for him. “I love networking and I want to have fun. I feel this platform was created to uplift the youth and the chosen contestants, and I think I’d fit the role perfectly,” he said.
Adekunle “came through with lazy swag”, according Ebuka, but he says he’s bringing a little bit of trouble and a little bit of Lagos Island swag.
He is a 27-year-old digital marketing consultant from Lagos. He considers himself “a self-actualised introvert” who takes pride in being a giver that solves other people’s problems.
Are there any habits that may annoy his fellow Housemates? “The fact that I’m always right; and by the way, I never say anything I don’t know, could be considered annoying. Also, I learned recently that I use a lot of big grammar when I speak,” he says with a chuckle.
Adekunle hopes to win this season of Big Brother Naija so he can help his mother pay off her mortgage, loans and debt.
Doyin took a hint from Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s designer, showing up in a two-toned maxi dress like they both had it planned.
Doyin describes her personality as a mix of Michelle Obama and Cardi B and admits she is not afraid to bring out either, depending on the scenario. This 26-year-old is “a box of surprises, and you never know what you’ll get”.
When she’s not hard at work as a medical radiographer, you’ll find Doyin partying and reading.
Doyin is hoping Big Brother Naija will help change the direction of her life. “I find medicine incredibly boring and I want to see if there is anything for me in the entertainment industry. Also, I just want to make more money than I’m currently making,” she said.
Allysyn turned up rocking a tinny-winny peach number with matching heels.
She is a 25-year-old who works hard as a Sales and Marketing Executive for a popular vehicle brand.
After investing all her money in furniture for a show she wanted to start on YouTube ¬– then subsequently losing it all when Covid hit, Allysyn is eager to get it all back and then some, by winning Big Brother Naija. She also hopes appearing on the show will help her build her brand. ”I want to do social media full-time, I want to continue modelling and I also want to be a television presenter.
Chomzy repeated herself three times that she’s here for the money and nothing will distract her from her goal.
The 22-year-old entrepreneur loves the simple things in life; sewing, travelling and twerking. She hates snitches and betrayers and considers herself resourceful and passionate people-person.
Chomzy hopes Big Brother Naija will make her rich and famous. “I want to be successful in my business and I want to find love too”.
26-year-old Dotun works in a hospital as a medical physiologist and moonlights as a personal trainer on his days off.
Dotun has aspirations of taking over the entertainment industry and counts being crowned Mr Tourism Nigeria 2018 as a proud moment, alongside graduating as one of the University of Ibadan’s top students in his speciality a week later.
Dotun reckons he has the perfect blend of competitiveness and excitement to help him stand out in the Big Brother Naija.
24-year-old Giddyfia is an engineer who considers himself a hardworking team player with excellent interpersonal skills and lots of creative ideas.
One of his favourite achievements is graduating from university with top honours. He is a fitness buff and even won the 2019 ‘Male Physique of the Year’ award in college. Giddyfia feels he will make a good Housemate because he is kind, caring, smart and fun to be with. “There are things about me that people will love to see and emulate,” he said.
Diana is a 33-year-old Project Manager from Edo State. She was born in France but now calls Abuja home.
Diana confirms that she is single. “Guys perceive me as sophisticated, high maintenance and too expensive to approach. When they eventually get to know me, they realise I am actually a very lovable and down-to-earth person,” she says.
This livewire would like to kickstart her acting career, build a network of friends and use the Big Brother Naija platform to establish her brand, and also impact the world in the critical areas of poverty, education and climate change.
Hermes, a performance artist counts basketball, public speaking and American flag football as some of his interests. He has had the opportunity to perform some of his original dance pieces at reputable festivals in Lagos, Glasgow and Rotterdam, and has also appeared in music videos for afrobeat stars including Burna Boy, Davido and Ajebo Hustlers.
Hermes is in a polyamorous relationship with two women and feels this kind of partnership has left enough room for everyone in it to grow individually and collectively. One of his favourite traits is honesty.” I’m one, to tell the truth, but over time I’ve realised many people are not particularly fond of perspectives they don’t agree with, so I tell the truth, but diplomatically,” he said.
Why the Big Brother Naija House? “I’d like to show people just how much they love and creativity that is built in such tight living circumstances can change the world and help people grow”.
22-year-old Chichi is a “Stripper by night and chef by day”.
Although she had a painful childhood, Chichi has managed to rise above it all and continues to forge her own path. She admits her bluntness can sometimes tick people off, but she doesn’t mind because she believes in sincerity. “It’s either I say things the way they are, or I don’t say it at all”.
Chichi wants to be on Big Brother Naija to show people that there is more to this stripper than meets the eye. “I have so many things to showcase and I believe the world really needs to see me. The Big Brother Naija House is the only place that will bring me that kind of spotlight,” she says. Her hidden talent? Working the pole, of course!

Although currently single, he loves relationships but believes it is important to find the right person. “I think it’s important to settle down with someone you genuinely connect with and not just for vibes,” he says.
Why Big Brother Naija? Sheggz believes he has a lot to show the world. “Nigerians have talent, we have swag, we have vibes, we’re smart, we’re ambitious and to be honest, we’re all over the world smashing goals and achieving”.
