That one of the Big Brother Africa (BBA) housemate, Prezzo, is in Nigeria should not be news by now, because the news is all over town. But what is strange about this ambassador of the M-Net-organised BBA reality TV show is that no M-Net official was with him while he arrived Nigeria.

Whatever Prezzo is here for in Nigeria is his business, but it leaves much to the imagination of many as to how a BBA winner can embark on a journey without the knowledge or consent of the ‘R
