#BBNaija2019: Sir Dee, Tacha, Diane, Gidoni, Mercy.. Meet the remaining 11 housemates

The 2019 edition of the Big Brother Naija reality show kicked off on Sunday with the introduction of the 21 housemates.

In case you missed it, see the first ten contestants here. See the rest below.

Esther Olaoluwa Agunbiade

22-year-old Lagos based lawyer , Esther Olaoluwa Agunbiade, was called to the bar at just twenty-one years old. She’s also very athletic and loves to show off her figure.

For her, being in the BBNaija house is not just about the money for me. 'I love competition,' she says.

Oluwaseyi “Seyi” Awolowo

Oluwaseyi “Seyi” Awolowo has had many highs and lows. The entrepreneur once tried to commit suicide but has since risen above that dark period of his teenage years and has turned his life around.

 He is committed to his journey of self-acceptance, his girlfriend and his beliefs. He demonstrates the latter with a “Jesus’’ tattoo across his arm.

He will invest in his company and may also help a charity or two if he wins the grand prize.

 Diane Yashim
 Diane Yashim describes herself as an easy going girl whose favourite outfit is a shirt, trousers and sneakers.

The model and aspiring cook is also a graduate of the University of Debrecen in Hungary.

One of the highlights of her life is being chosen as a Big Brother Naija Season Four Housemate and she says that nothing would make her quit the game. She adds that she likes to try new things and wants to see the whole experience through.

On what she'll do with the prize money: "Travel as well as try to get into the entertainment industry as an actor or television presenter. I will also go back to school."

Ekpata Gedoni

Ekpata Gedoni is a 31-year-old fashion entrepreneur from Cross River. He enjoys basketball, soccer, taking walks and cleaning the house! His other talents include writing poetry and drawing portraits with pencil.

On what he will do with the prize money: "Sort out family debts, put up a proper fashion house and random acts of kindness."


30-year-old Jeff is a banker from Anambra but residing in Jos. He believes in taking things one day at a time.

On what he will do with the prize money: "I'll use this money to further establish my fintech start-up business. The business aims to help the youth improve their circumstances and grow with what little they may have."

 Mercy Eke

26-year-old Mercy Eke is a video vixen and businesswoman based in Lagos. She loves cooking, swimming, travelling and dancing.

If she had a million dollars in her account, would she still be in the BB Naija game? “Yes, I would. I want the fame. The popularity is very important for my business”.

She want to start her own fashion brand or label if she grabs the prize money.

Mike Edwards

Mike Edwards is the only married person in the house. Mike owns the first Black-owned cigar line in the United Kingdom and he’s also a professional athlete.

The highest point in his life was the day he got married to the love of his life. The lowest point in his life was when he was banned from representing Nigeria at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

He’d still come to the Big Brother Naija House even if he had a million dollars because he never backs down from a challenge.

He would continue to grow my business if he wins the cash prize.

Sir Dee

Sir Dee, real name Atteh Daniel Tioluwa, is a banker and graphic designer from Kaduna State. He loves football, board games and movies.

Sir Dee, who is in a relationship, believes in being “the best version of myself at all times” - and counts whistling as one of his secret talents.  If he were an animal, this 27-year-old would be a lion.

As much as the prize money is important, winning is not Sir Dee’s ultimate aim. “The fact that I will be disconnected from everyone I know will have to form new relationships in an enclosed environment, is very exciting to me”.

On what he'll do with the prize money: "Pay for a trip for my parents, my kid brother and myself to go see my sister in the UK. I’d also give a certain amount to my sister and then invest in my business, amongst other things."


Tacha has always wanted to be on Big Brother Naija. It comes as no surprise then, that getting picked to be a Housemate this season, is the highlight of her life.

The 23-year-old Rivers State native would pick her phone over sleep, any day. Although losing her mom weighs heavily on her, the experience has taught Tacha she is as strong as an eagle, one of her favourite animals.

On what she'll do with the prize money: "Invest in new business ideas, increase my family’s standard of living and start a charity foundation"
