At the sixth BBTitans live show on Sunday, February 19, 2023, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced to viewers across 60 countries that he would be absent from next Sunday’s live show.
He proudly stated that he would return home from South Africa, where the season is being filmed, to Nigeria for the presidential elections to exercise his civil duties. In previous times, the popular host has stated that he doesn’t expect the show that began on January 15 to affect the Nigerian elections.
At the premiere date announcement on December 15, 2022, he told journalists, “I think young Nigerians are complex enough to understand that they can watch something when they want to and vote when it’s time. I disagree that anything can distract you when it’s time to perform your civic duties.”
Again, during the live show, he reiterated the importance of Nigerians taking their civic duties seriously and going out to vote on election day, starting with the presidential elections, which will hold on Saturday, February 25, 2023.
The best thing to do is to go out to vote and then return home to keep abreast of elections update and watch BBTitans.
