Former Big Brother Naija ‘Pepper Dem’ housemates, Mike Edwards and Tacha, are currently the ones with the highest number of followers on their respective Instagram pages.
Following the end of the 2019 edition of the reality TV show, all former housemates have taken their different paths towards making their mark in the Nigerian entertainment scene.
Tacha, who was disqualified in the dying minutes of this year’s edition of the show, and Mike Edwards, who was the first runner-up, currently are the most followed housemates on Instagram.
Tacha has the highest number of followers – over 909k followers. This comes after she took a break from the image-sharing platform for about a week but later returned to announce her homecoming hang out with her fans, Titans,
Mike comes second with the highest number of followers and is in the league of Tacha, but she leads him by a 4-thousand gap.
Mike was loved on the show for his gentle-manliness and respect for his marriage. He celebrated 900,000 followers yesterday and has gathered over 11,000 as of today.
The pertinent question on the minds of most people, although unspoken, still remains: are these housemates buying their followers? Nothing is uncommon or impossible with social media these days.
Mike has insisted that he will not attend any event that he is invited to without his wife, Perri Edwards. He is arguably the most loved male BBNaija housemate and has been accepted well into the Nigerian entertainment world.
