Ozo has been evicted from the Big Brother Naija lockdown season. He was the second housemate to be evicted on Sunday night after Tricky T.
Ozo whose full name is Ozoemena Chukwu is an Imo State entrepreneur who has worked in several areas of business, including HR, sports administration, business financial management and customer relations.
Ozo is probably the most educated BBNaija Season 5 housemate. The 27-year-old Imo State native revealed during the show that he comes from a family that placed high value to education and he actually was not mincing words.
BBN Ozo had most of his education abroad. He attended the Rīgas Tehniskā Universitāte (Riga Technical University) in Riga, Latvia (a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe) where he obtained a Master of Science degree in Business and Financial Management (2016 – 2018). Riga Technical University is the oldest technical university in the Baltic region of Northern Europe established on October 14, 1862.
Before Rigas, BBN Ozo attended the Kharkiv National University Of Radio Electronics (one of the oldest technology universities in Ukraine) where he graduated with a first-class Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Cybernetics (2010 – 2014).
In 2017, BBNaija Ozo attended the Biznesa Augstskola Turība (or simply Turiba University) which is the largest business school in Latvia. At Turiba University, Ozoemena Chukwu obtained a degree in Strategic Communication For Leadership, Communication and Media Studies. If you are wondering why BBNaija Ozo communicates very effectively in the house, this degree might be it.
The same year, Ozo also trained at the Professional Football Scouts Association where he learnt talent identification in football games and general football scouting.
As someone with his level of education, it is no surprise that BBN Ozo would have an impressive work history and experience. The 27-year-old has worked for several big companies while also running his personal urban clothing business.
Ozo’s most recent job was the role of a human resource and compliance manager for Dezern Nigeria, a chemical manufacturing company with several branches in Nigeria – Aba, Lagos, Enugu, Onitsha, Okigwe, and Abuja.
Ozo had a brief stint with Dream FM as a sports analyst. In 2018, BBNaija Ozo was a football academy analyst for the Latvian Football Federation (LFF). Ozo also had a stint with the UEFA Federation in Europe as a sports consultant.
During his time in the House, he won the Head of House position twice and his eloquence and level-headed personality quickly earned him the respect of not just several housemates but also fans.
His stay was, however, not without some doses of drama or controversy following a ‘situationship’ or love ‘triangle’ that saw him sometimes dominate the trends.
Speaking with Ebuka, he reiterated that the emotions he felt for fellow housemate, Nengi, were genuine and he already found everything he wanted in a woman.
The 28-year-old said he was not afraid to pursue what he felt for her even if some people may have described him as a ‘mumu’.

Speaking of his plans going forward, he said he would love to continue his work in the area of sports development in Nigeria as well as talent identification and job creation for the youth.
He also gave a shout out to his family for their continuous love and support as well as the organisers of the show.
With just about a few days to the show’s finale, the suspense over who would make it to the finals and who would win the season has reached fever pitch.
The winner will go home with the grand prize of N85 million.
