Emmanuel Umoh Jr., a Shine Ya Eye contestant on Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), has survived a horrifying car accident.
This comes days after the BBNaija and the Nigerian entertainment industry lost Rico Swavey, another Big Brother Naija star to the cold hands of death after a ghastly car accident.
In a post on his Instagram page, the former Mr Ideal Nigeria praised God for giving him life while displaying the damage to his car.
He said that it has been a while since he cried and his recent near-death experience brought back memories.
Emmanuel happens to be the first Nigerian to win Mister Africa. He was born in Akwa Ibom but now resides in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where he owns and runs a gym as well as a men’s and women’s spa and salon.
Emmanuel is a businessman who owns Hair Lab Salon and Spa, a beauty and barbing salon based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. He also owns Body Lab, a body language/ gym house in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
In 2021, Emmanuel auditioned for the Big Brother Naija Reality TV Show, Season 6, and on the 24th of July, 2021, he was announced as a housemate at Big Brother Naija Season 6.
