5. Nkechi Blessing on Sunday
Sensational Nigerian actor Nkechi Blessing is also a Hermes fan. The interesting thing about these celebrities and their bbnaija choices is that their fans ultimately become fans of their favorites.
Blessing revealed in an Instagram post that she loved Hermes at first sight.

DJ Cuppy is a Groovy fan and you can almost see why. A few weeks ago, the Nigerian musician took to Twitter to announce her choice. She also urged her fans to channel their support and vote for him.
Cuppy is a die hard lover of pink. From her pink hair to her pink Ferrari to her outfits, she always makes a statement with the color. Groovy’s move into the house with pink hair therefore attracted Cuppy. She went on to call him her twin, emphasizing her choice.
I’m pretty sure Groovy and I are twins 😂 #BBNaija
