A brand new season of Big Brother Naija reality show airs in a few days and we have reached peak nostalgia reliving some of the exciting moments from the previous seasons.

While some of the show's alumni lead very active lives on social media, others have sought career paths away from the glitz and glamour of celebrity life.

Pulse takes a look at your favourite housemates from the Pepper Dem season.

It's been major wins for Mercy Eke since she emerged the first female winner of the show. With a strong social media following and her die hard 'Mercenaries' fan base, Mercy has established herself as a brand influencer with tons of brands queuing up for her signature.

In April, she announced her reality show, 'Mercy and Ike' alongside beau and former housemate, Ike Onyema. The currently running show follows the lives of the lovebirds post Big Brother. Away from brand influencing and the camera, lights and action, Mercy announced she invested her 30 million Naira win in a real estate company and in May 2020, she launched Lambo Homes, a real estate development company.
