"I think whether or not you win, it's a platform." Mister Nigeria, Emmanuel Ikubese tells the Housemates that he had tried a few times to get into Biggie's House. He chatted to them when over a bowl of Garri about wanting to do Big Brother instead of Mister Nigeria but that he never got chosen. He then decided to enter Mister Nigeria and how his career had taken off after his win, with many doors opening up to him. He explained that the platform that they are now on is amazing and he reminded them that not only Nigeria was watching but the rest of Africa too.

Emmanuel explained his journey to getting into acting which came out of his music career as a DJ. He took some questions from the Housemates and discussed what his favourite sports were and Bassey asked him how he handled sudden fame to which he dished out some sage advice, starting off with "Do not see yourself as bigger than you are." He added that they should concentrate on educating themselves so that they could have something to fall back on.

Unfortunately his time in the House was all too short and he sadly had to say his goodbyes, posing with all of the Housemates.
