Full Name: Chiamaka Crystal Mbah
This self-professed daddy’s girl has only one sibling, is the only girl in her family and loves generous men. Her motto is: ‘Grab the bull by the horns and forge ahead’, which has helped her navigate the highs and lows life throws her way. Amaka confesses she signed up for Big Brother Naija to not only win, but to have fun, meet new people and to pepper all her exes.
Amaka admits she may sometimes come across as bold, mean and “extra”, but people always realise she is as soft as jelly, when they get to know her better. She is the first to admit she talks a lot, something her fellow Housemates may find annoying. “I am a big parrot! You don’t need to pay me o. I can talk for free non-stop,” she says. Although she admits to holding grudges, Amaka reckons she makes up for it by being honest. “You will always know where you stand with me”.
