On Thursday, Twitter was bombarded with tweets from social media users suggesting that the organisers of the Big Brother Naija show should consider someone else as the host of the next edition of the show. The Twitter users listed Frank Edoho of the “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” game show as a perfect replacement for Ebuka.
The Twitter user who called for Ebuka’s replacement described Frank Edoho as more experienced because he hosted “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” for 13 years.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendi has been hosting Big Brother Naija since 2017 and many social media users pointed out that the eviction night of the Big Brother Naija show would be extremely entertaining if Frank Edoho was host.
A netizens caused an uproar on Twitter after he said Ebuka should be replaced by Frank Edoho, saying that Ebuka has “eaten small”.
The Twitter user wrote: “Ebuka don eat small, make him allow another person chop! Frank Edoho as BBNaija host for this season won’t be a bad choice tho. Eviction night go choke gan ”
Many Nigerians and fans of the reality show defended Ebuka, which caused an outrage and a Twiter debate.
Frank Edoho also reacted to the uprising on Twitter, asking the Twitter user what Ebuka has done to deserve being replaced. He rejected the suggestions and added that he will soon return to the screens, but not as Big Brother Naija host.
However, Ebuka has finally reacted after social media users called for his replacement as host of the show. Ebuka took to Twitter to tell his fans that he loves them, apparently for defending him against those who called for his replacement.
Taking to Twitter, Ebuka wrote; “I love you guys.”
