Big Brother Naija Season 5. Meet Eric Akhigbe


Eric Akhigbe is a 24-year-old final year student at the University of Lagos who hails from Edo State. He is from a family of six, whom he sees as his support system. He once attended Covenant University but dropped out to pursue his basketball career.

He is 1.95m tall and takes so much pride in it. He is a fun, competitive sport and a fitness enthusiast who enjoys winning. He describes himself as a shy person but takes time to uncover his wild side. His NBA dream was shattered when he had an accident that affected his knee. He also tried to get into the Nigeria Defense Academy but was disqualified because of his flat feet.

He stated that his greatest achievement so far was helping over 100 people build their dream bodies as a bodybuilder. His new lockdown skill was listening to his thoughts more carefully and analyzing them. His words to live by are, “Thank God for Life.” His favorite color is sky blue, and he loves eating pounded yam and groundnut soup.

He is currently not in a relationship but is open to getting one in the big brother house. He, however, said that his spec is not in the house. Eric intends to own a sportswear brand and a charity organisation to alleviate poverty in five years’ time.
