Big Brother Naija reality show is one of the biggest platform for talented Nigerians to ”sell their market” to the world and that cannot be over-emphasized.
The reality show is rated-18 and also highly popular among young Nigerians because it has literally turned many unknown talents into stars.
However, while the show has produced some of the leading names in Nigeria’s thriving entertainment industry, quite a handful of them who made the show and back have swung into oblivion.
Below are 10 ex-Big Brother female contestants that you must have forgotten ;

Marvis was one of the contestants in the 2017 edition themed ”See Gobe”. She 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 before she was evicted from the show.
2. Mojisola “CoColce” Sowode
Coco Ice is alumni of class ’17 and she was the third participant to be evicted from the Big Brother show.
