"Cunny Cunny", "In the morning", "See Gobbe", "Slowly, slowly"... The memorable songs we owe to the Big Brother Naija Housemates are many. Amidst all the laughter, tears and crazy antics, the House was home to many a brilliant musician. 11 weeks and millions of fans later, they're making the most of their global fame and collaborating with some of the biggest names in the business.
DEBIE-RISE and BASSEY
This will be a pretty special one for our hardcore BBNaija fans out there as many of you will remember watching Debie-Rise and Bassey create this song. We've included the original in case the memory has escaped you. With the exception of "See Gobbe", "Love and Pain" is the only composition made in the Big Brother Naija House that's become a fully fledged studio release and yes, the end result is brilliant.
As if walking away with 25 Million Naira wasn't enough, Efe has struck gold again with his new track "Somebody". In a word, the song is infectious and everybody who's "somebody" (excuse the pun) has been vibing to it on social media. It's no wonder therefore, that in just one week, the song's gotten more views than anything else he's released since the competition wrapped and is poised to be his biggest hit yet.
Bisola has been on fire starring in one production after another since leaving the show. It'd be a crying shame if she didn't treat us to her beautiful voice anymore however. Any worries about that were laid to rest when she delivered a sutlry verse on Terry Apala's newest track, "Bad girl" this month. The track caused quite a comotion after she teased it on Instagram and the video, released shortly after, has made an even bigger splash amassing nearly 60 000 views in the last two weeks.
His hauntingly beautiful, acoustic record, "Uncle Suru" was one of the most listened to songs of any Housemate at the close of the show. The "fair baron" managed to do what seemed impossible recording an even lovelier version after enlisting the help of Akunle Gold and Simi who both delivered immaculate vocals. A music video is on the way "this June" and we are beside ourselves waiting in anticipation.
