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.”
After twenty Housemates entered the House, it boiled down to two Housemates, Miracle and Cee-C to which Miracle emerged victorious.
When Ebuka told them 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 to which he slightly succeeded.
Winning Before Winning
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 One Million Naira.
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 thirty million votes this week; 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.
Champaign splashing and everyone gathering to embrace him, finally he stood up and continued to celebrate in disbelief.
Congratulations Miracle, a race well run.
