Whitemoney, real name Hazel Oyeye Onou, has emerged winner of the sixth season of Big Brother Naija after polling 47 percent of the votes in the final week.
The show’s host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, announced that the 29-year-old was the winner at this season’s grand finale on Sunday.
The creative native of Enugu State beat 25 other housemates to clinch the prize after an intensely competitive 77 days.
For the first time in the show’s history, the game ended with a top-6 instead of a top-5. Liquorose became the last woman standing in the competition and the first runner up with 29.99 percent of the votes. Pere came in third place after polling 14.7 percent of the votes. Cross gathered only 6.44 percent of the votes and came in fourth. At the same time, Angel and Emmanuel finished fifth and sixth with 5.37 and 3.43 percent respectively.
Whitemoney joins Katung, Efe, Miracle, Mercy and Laycon in the highly coveted list of BBNaija winners. Like the previous winners, he’ll no doubt leverage the opportunity the BBNaija platform has offered him to push his career.
The grand finale featured live performances by Nigerian superstars Made Kuti, Avala and Laycon. A highlight of the night was a surprise performance by Lojay and Ajebo Hustlers with renditions of hit songs ‘Monalisa’ and ‘Pronto’.
