  • The Prize is N45m in total, and Miracle is walking away with it, after 85 eventful days in the House, full of hope, intrigues, sex, betrayal and anxiety. Miracle won with over 38% of the entire votes cast. In all, 170 million votes were cast in the 85-day event, with 30 million votes coming in this week alone. Miracle goes home with N45m comprising:

N25m in cash
A brand new SUV worth N12m
An all-expenses paid trip for two to an exotic destination valued at N4.7m
A complete home entertainment system and appliances worth N3.3m.

Miracle’s real name is Miracle Igbokwe. He was born on the 17th of February 1995. Miracle attended the International Aviation College and the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology, Zaria. He finished from Dee Unique International High School. Newly graduated from the aviation school, Miracle flies into the House with his pilot license firmly in hand. He feels grateful for everything in life as he knows how financially difficult it was to get there.

Miracle’s love of dancing and camping is only parallel by his sense of fashion, especially his skinny jeans. Miracle hates inequality and says he’s not in the game for the money. When he was asked what irritates him most in other people, he said, “People being fake makes me not to trust them.” As to what he brought into the BB House, he said, “I want to bring confusion among the ladies.”

‘What will you do with the prize money’, he was asked; to which he said, “I’ll use part of the money to further my pilot training and the rest to help my family. Miracle and Nina had the first kiss and make-out session in the house. They both made it to the final five, but Nina was among the three final evictees on the last day of the reality show, leaving Miracle and Cee-C to contend for the coveted prize.

While in the house, Miracle was once embroiled in a drama when a wedding band was spotted on his ring finger in some old photos that Nigerians dug up. His brother, Samuel debunked the claims that Miracle was married. He also explained how the ring on his finger came to be. When Ebuka told the two finalists — Miracle and Cee-C — to take one last walk and switch off the lights in the house, Miracle and Cee-C knew that one of them was the ultimate Housemate for this season’s Double Wahala.

With smiles all over their faces as they switched one light at a time, they finally said their goodbyes to Big Brother and exited for the main stage. When Davido’s Fall faded, the mood electrified as the housemates entered the stage and soon after, Ebuka had to calm the crowd.

Miracle’s will to win has always been rewarded by his ability to give his all in every challenge given to him. Whether it’s the head of house, a task or the Arena games, he always brought his A-game. So, when he was announced as the overall winner for the Payporte’s Arena games, it came as no surprise, as he’s won more than any other housemate. With an overall time of 53 minutes and 30 seconds throughout the season, Miracle was awarded a cash prize of N1m.

As usual, Ebuka asked the auditor to confirm if the results were independently verified and the auditor confirmed. After they were shown the prizes to be won and with a total of 30 million votes this week alone; after a long silence and seeing both contestants shaking and nervous, Miracle emerged as the ultimate Big Brother Naija winner.

Emotions ran high from everyone and Miracle’s in-house sweetheart, Nina, was at the fore embracing him as he struggled getting up after his excitement threw him on the ground. Champagne splashing and everyone gathering to embrace him, finally he stood up and continued to celebrate in disbelief. “Congratulations Miracle, a race well run,” Big Brother concluded.
