There is no contention here that Uti Nwanchukwu has worked his way to fame after winning the 2010 Big Brother Africa All Stars reality show in Johannesburg,South Africa. He is the man of the moment.Since his return to Nigeria his fatherland,he has received congratulatory messages from the Speaker of the House of Reps, Mr. Dimeji Bankola, President Goodluck Jonathan and even the Ibrahim Babangida Campaign organization has sent congratulatory messages to him.
That is not all, notable clubs in Nigeria have organized welcome party for the big boy who won for himself $200,000 (30 Million Naira). The other day, it was at Rehab, said to be owned by Olu Shodeinde and Owen Aisien.
I was at the one they did for him at Number 10, the hangout on Saka Tinubu in Victoria Island owned by Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha.Uti was on top of the world as many people came to ‘rollick’ with him.The height of the whole thing was around 4 AM when he was surrounded by chics and he really came to party hard. Tuface Idiabia’s hit song ‘Only Me’- was played- With the song many people around reminded Uti that “Ma lorope omo pe wo nikan lo ma lowo..” (Uti we are going be rich too, not just you).Top female photographer, Tyna Ezenna, her husband and top blogger,Linda Ikeji ware also there.
Well, the guy can party hard but he should avoid learning the hard way. He is a lucky man. He participated in Nigeria Next Movie Star, He did not win but that prepared him. He was once in the Big Brother Africa,he did not win, his second attempt made him a mega star
We pray that the guy manages his new found fame and fortune well.For now, the party continues.It all about UTI PARTY!!!
