The genuine identity of Jackie B, one of the Big Brother Naija (Shine Ya Eyes) housemates has emerged online.
Grace Folashade Bent, a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator in Adamawa State, is her mom.
Grace Folashade Bent nee Makinwa is a Nigerian senator who was elected in the Adamawa South seat of Adamawa State in April 2007 on the People’s Democratic Party platform.
On Sunday, July 25, Jackie B became the third female contender to enter the Big Brother Naija house. The single mother of one explained that she was going into the house to have some fun and get between the sheets with whoever could handle her. Meanwhile, the lovely BBNaija housemate’s Instagram profile has revealed more about her family and implies that she share close relationship with her mom and grand-mother.
Senator Grace Bent, who had been a member of the Peoples Democratic Party for 21 years, recently defected to the All Progressives Congress, claiming that she had had enough of the umbrella party.
It is unclear whether her affluent family background will earn her enough support to stay in the house as all of the housemates compete for the grand prize of 90 million naira in the competition, but a former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode who is known to have a close relationship with Jackie’s mother, began drumming support for her on his social media page hours ago. He wrote: “I fully endorse Jackie B who is the daughter of my dearest sister and friend Senator Grace Bent! Please vote for her!”
Season 6 of Big Brother Naija is sponsored by Abeg.
