Former housemate of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Season 5, Lockdown Edition, Neo Akpofure was on the Krasks Prank Show, and he tried pranking on his fellow housemate and friend, Ozo.
Neo told his buddy, Ozo that his girlfriend and fellow BBNaija housemate, Vee is pregnant for him and he didn’t know what to do because he is not ready for fatherhood, yet.
On hearing the disturbing news, Ozo was shocked and all worked up. How could Neo get a woman pregnant if he was not ready to become a father? What would they do now? How would they handle the matter?
These and many other questions were just some of the thoughts running through Ozo’s mind.
The proud winner of a car in the BBNaija reality T.V. show however pulled himself together, calmed Neo down and started advising the Warri-born Neo on what step of action to take.
Ozo was furious when at the end Neo told him it was only a prank. He slammed his friend, Neo calling him a big fool after making him scared by telling him his girlfriend Vee is pregnant and doesn’t know what to do.
Both housemate got really close in BBNaija house after Neo became a confidant of the sports analyst and indeed their friendship continued even after the show.
Neo was born in Delta State, Nigeria and currently lives in Lagos. His full name is Emuobonuvie Akpofure.
He had his primary and secondary education in Delta State.
Neo was raised in a polygamous home of over 20 children. His father, a SAN, had married several wives and was later separated from Neo’s mother. Neo has many siblings who are lawyers. Neo’s mother, whom the 26-year-old reality star has admitted being very fond of, was a prison warden. Neo said he grew up in a prison setting while living with his mom.
Neo worked with the ride-hailing app Uber as a driver before he auditioned and was selected to participate in the Big Brother Naija Season 5 show.
Though the 26-year-old housemate admitted he made ends meet as an Uber driver, there is close to zero chance that he will go back to his former job as an Uber driver after the BBNaija really show has thrown him into the limelight.
