Bayo Okoh is absolutely clear on what he’d like his Big Brother Africa experience to be. A determined young man, he wants the unique experience to be “wonderful, explosive, mind-blowing, exciting, lasting”.
He’s confident that he will get on well with the South African housemate as he believes both countries have similar backgrounds. With this in mind, it?s not very surprising to discover that he, like so many others, ranks Nelson Mandela as an icon. Bayo says he admires the Nobel Prize winner’s determination and willpower.
Bayo enjoys both Nigerian and international entertainment and ranks Grammy-winners Missy Elliot and Ja Rule with local artists Lagbaja and Kwam 1 as favourite musicians.
His favourite actresses are Sandra Bullock and Halle Berry and his favourite foods are pounded yam and egusi soup.
An enthusiastic man whose greatest fear is to “not to make it in life”, Bayo credits his mother for having a profound influence on his life. Tanzania
