Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, BBNaija host, has said that the show does not guarantee instant success. He disclosed this in a chat with Temisan “Taymesan’ Emmanuel on a recent episode of ‘Tea with Tay’.

According to him, it is tough to make it through because the housemates undergo an entire session with psychologists before appearing on the show.

He noted that it is done to properly prepare them in case they end up not making it big after the show like they had envisaged.

He said: “Before the housemates get into the show, they have a whole session with a psychologist before they come on. There is a ‘preparation’ like, ‘You know you can get into this thing and this is what might happen.

“At that point, you still believe it can never be me. It must take a bad business person to go on this show and not make it. That’s what everybody says. Ah-ha! Just give me one week. I’ve had people tell me,

“Ebuka, I swear to God, all I need. If I don’t finish you, people….

“And I’ll be like, ‘What makes you different from these other people?’

He added “I’ve had people mention specific names asking what those people do that they can’t also do. And I’m like, no. It doesn’t work that way because the industry will swallow you; whole. And then, you don’t want to be famous and broke. Which is the worst thing that can happen to anyone in life.”
