Here are the three ex-housemates who have gone ahead to make their debut as Nollywood actors.


Sir Dee

Sir Dee was the first to make his debut role in a Nollywood film. Shortly after his eviction from the BBNaija’s house, Sir Dee got himself a role in Samuel Olatunji’s upcoming film, ‘Dear Affy’. The reality star was paired with music star, Teni Makanaki as lovers and featured in scenes with top Nollywood actors like Odunlade Adekola. The film is scheduled to hit the cinemas in 2020.




Diane is the second ex-housemate to have gone ahead to make her debut in a Nollywood film shortly after her exit from the house. While in the BBnaija house, Diane had gotten an open invitation to join the set of Funke Akindele-Bello’s hit TV series, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’. The offer was re-opened after Diane’s exit from the reality TV show. However, on Friday, December 6, Diane released her debut production. She featured in a short drama alongside music star, Iyanya and she also produced the project.




Mike Edwards, widely known as Mike or The cruise master, has also made his Nollywood debut. Unlike others, the reality star joined veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, RMD, on the set of an upcoming movie in Madrid Spain in November 2019. RMD revealed that Mike will be playing the role of his son in the movie. Mike confirmed RMD’s revelation with a couple of pictures on the movie set which was shared on his Instagram page. However, both Mike and RMD have refused to share details of the upcoming movie.
