BN Saturday Celebrity Interview: From Big Brother Africa to the Big Screen – Actor, Model, TV Presenter & Musician, Uti Nwachukwu is Bursting Out!

Posted on Saturday, June 2nd, 2012 at 1:00 PM

By Adeola Adeyemo

Uti Nwachukwu is one of Nigeria’s most popular entertainers. He is a TV Presenter, Model, Actor, Musician and MC and a 2012 nominee for Entertainment Personality of the Year at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards.
In 2007, he made a successful appearance in ‘The Next Movie Star’ Reality TV show where he finished as first runner up and ‘Big Brother Africa’ (BBA) 3 in 2008. However, his return to the house for BBA All Stars 5 in 2010 was the turning point of his career as winning the competition shot him up to stardom.
Uti is the Tourism Ambassador of Cross River state and the Youth Ambassador of Delta state, his home state. For his career achievements, he has won several awards including FAB Model of the Year 2011, Leadership Young Person of the Year 2011 and City People Most Fashionable Celebrity of the Year 2012. The video for his single, ‘Once in My Life’ carted away the Best Alternative/Rock Video at the Nigerian Video Music Awards 2011.
He speaks with Adeola Adeyemo in this exclusive, no holds barred interview.

Any misconceptions I had about Uti flew out the window after chatting with him for a few minutes. He was too bubbly, too friendly to be stuck up and struck me as one of the most down to earth celebrities I’d met. For one who was quite famous, he had no airs around him and responded to questions about his life, family, career and more without holding back.

You must be one of the most successful Reality TV Stars in the country with two appearances in ‘Big Brother Africa’ and one in ‘The Next Movie Star’. Why did you decide to enter for these shows?
Actually I missed the audition to BBA 2 in 2007 and it was on my check list to enter for a Reality TV Show that year so I decided to enter for The Next Movie Star when I missed BBA. I grew up watching a lot of TV and I always used to day dream about doing things like I saw on TV. All I wanted was a platform, the avenue to be seen so that the producers or whoever is responsible for hiring actors, musicians, models can see that this boy is good at whatever he does.

What else was on your check list and have you been able to achieve all you set out to do?
I had a check list when I was 18 and on that list were different things – work on my physique, appear on a billboard, walk on the runway, do a TV advert of international standard, act in movies, record a rock single, win awards at everything I do, become a TV presenter, go on BBA (at that time there was only Big Brother South Africa and I loved the show so much, I wanted to be on it, and thankfully in 2001, Big Brother Africa was introduced). The only thing I haven’t achieved on that list is acting in a Hollywood movie and going on Oprah Show, but of course there is no more Oprah Show.

You had a brief stay in the house in BBA 3 but returned to clinch the ultimate prize in BBA 5 All Stars. Tell me about the period between the two shows. What was going on in your life at that time?
At that time, my career wasn’t going exactly the way I wanted it to. People were pricing me cheap. For the fact that I hadn’t won, they felt like they were doing me a favour and I wanted that to change. So one Sunday I went to church at RCCG City of David for a Thanksgiving Service. That very day, the Pastor said we should pray for a second chance. At that time, I didn’t think of Big Brother as a second chance but I prayed and surprisingly, that same week, on Wednesday, I got a call to come and participate in BBA All Stars.

Tell me something about the show that most people don’t realize.
A lot of people don’t realize that it’s very difficult to be with people you’ve never met in your life and you have to live with them. The last month is the most difficult because that’s when you start to lose it when there are less and less people in the house.

What do you think about the current season of BBA and the performance of our Nigerian housemates?
It’s very entertaining. It’s sad that our representatives had to leave. For all you know, Ola and Chris might get another chance maybe at another All Star game. But Goldie is kind of emotional right now and I totally understand. I keep telling people that you have to be put in that house to be able to judge somebody. Goldie has a very pleasant personality, she’s very down to earth but she’s in shock now and she’s slowly recovering from shock but Goldie is going to spring up. I’m yet to see that fun part of Goldie but with time, I know she’ll wake up.

If you were called back for another season of Big Brother, would you return to the house?
Unless they are doing like a World Big Brother from all the countries and the price would be like $1 million, hell yeah!

Uti & his many talents
Let’s talk about what’s happening with you presently. I kind of feel like I already know you because I’m used to seeing you online, on TV, in magazines, making appearances at almost every major social event. Why does it seem like you’re everywhere?
After BBA 3, I got lots of complains that I wasn’t really coming out strong and people didn’t know me on the social scene. I couldn’t be bothered before but with BBA 5, I got even more invites to events and got sort of cajoled with appearance fees for some of the events. But that is not the real reason. I’m an entertainer and networking is key. I had to learn about it the hard way because I wasn’t really getting a lot of jobs but the minute I started accepting these invites and attending these events, I started getting more jobs. For an entertainer, events are our official meetings just like how executives travel for board meetings. You have to be seen and heard. Also as brand ambassador for Martini, I am required to be at every event sponsored by Martini and 7 out of every 10 events I attend is sponsored by Martini. Don’t forget that it gives me the opportunity to free my mind. I have all the time to get old. When I’m 60, I won’t be going everywhere.

You released two singles and a video last year but we haven’t heard much about your music career recently. What’s happening in that area?
I’ve been so busy, really. A rock album is not something I’m going to rush because it’s going to be very deep. I’m going to try as much as possible to finish recording the album this year. I take my time to do things. I like to do things the right way, the different way.

You sing Rock, which is not a very common genre in Nigeria. What influenced this and how has your music been received so far?
I’m not really a ‘gbedu’ music lover, except when it’s time to party. I grew up listening to a lot of pop, rock, country music. I loved Linkin Park, One Republic, Foo Fighters. My music appeals to a certain class of people and I’m comfortable with that.

Your single, ‘Once In My Life’ is a very emotional song. What inspired it?
I was in a dark place when I wrote that song. There was a lot of backstabbing, betrayal, regrets and I just channeled all of that into music. It was not just about a girl as the video portrayed, but from people I called my friends then.

Your acting career has gained momentum since you acted in Tinsel, Bursting OutFear Not. Tell me about some jobs you’ve done recently and what to watch out for.
True Citizens was recently released. It had a lot of mixed reviews but people didn’t really understand that it wasn’t supposed to be a blockbuster, but a drama. Speechless with Uche Jumbo and Tonto Dikeh and In The Cupboard with Ini Edo and Alex Ekubo would soon be released. Another movie to look out for is Weekend Getaway. I got paired with Genevieve Nnaji in that movie and it’s something I’ve always wanted.

You’ve hosted two major successful TV shows, U&I and currently Jara with Helen Paul. What was the experience like on both shows?
U&I was a great show. We used to talk to the most random people, bus drivers, we even went to the brothel once to talk to the prostitutes. It was all about understanding these people better, knowing why they are the way they are.
Hosting Jara with Helen Paul is great. She is very funny. She makes my day really happy. With her, it doesn’t feel like a job.

Acting, Presenting, Music and Modeling – which one is most fulfilling to you?
All really. TV Presenting is very easy because it’s just me being me. Music is most challenging. Acting and Modeling strikes the balance.

Have you been involved in any other jobs or career outside the entertainment industry?
I worked in a bank from 2003 to 2004 after my Diploma at University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I made Senior Bulk Teller, counting people’s money and wishing I could credit my own account with all that money. But I went back to school for my Bachelors degree at Benson Idahosa University, Benin to study Computer Science and Education.

Controversies & Rumours
You were once rumoured to have clinched a Glo Ambassador deal worth $700,000. That sounded really mouth watering but is it true?
If I had a Glo deal, you would have been seeing my face on Glo billboards all over Lagos. l don’t know where that rumour started from. When I heard it, I contacted Glo and said its either we make this a reality or you guys refute the rumours so that you don’t scare away other people that might want to endorse me. I think they did publish a story to refute it. The way rumours fly in this country, it is crazy.

Another rumour that really flew was regarding your relationship with your friends, Alex Ekubo and Gbenro Ajibade and also Florence Ita-Giwa. Some news media alleged that you were in a romantic relationship with them. What went through your mind when you heard it?
It went from shock, to worry to laughter and now it’s extreme laughter. Back in the days, when two guys are always seen together, people would say this one has passed friendship, now he’s your brother. But now, people are saying we are in a relationship and I’m like what is happening in Nigeria? It’s very hilarious. I’m not trying to disrespect anybody’s sexual preference but for Alex and I or Gbenro and I, it doesn’t make sense. Florence Ita-Giwa is just a lovely woman who has helped my career in so many ways.

You have been severally misrepresented by the media but you seem to have grown a thick skin against misleading or negative comments and rumours about you.
I usually don’t read comments about me on blogs. I think most people that believe and carry these rumours are people that practice these things. I’m happy that we can sit down and laugh about it or else they would have ruined a good relationship. The more they talk more about us, the more relevant we are. In fact they should talk more, it’s really helping our career in a positive way.

Love & Family
Talking a bit more personal now, tell me about the first time you fell in love.
The first time I fell in love like a fool was when I was 20. I had to see her everyday; if I didn’t see her in a day I would just be tossing and turning. Sometimes I would go to her BQ at 12 midnight just to see her face. At a time I started getting too possessive because I wanted to be the only one that would make her happy. I would wear stuff because she liked it, dressed in a way she would like. It was very sweet but when it started getting bitter, it crushed me. I think I started growing grey hair at that time.

Awww, that sounds cute. You sound like a very emotional person when it comes to romantic relationships.
In as much as I’m one of the most pleasant friends to have, as a lover, I’m not very easy to be with. I’m a bit paranoid because of what has happened to me in previous relationships; I’m suspicious and quite possessive to an extent and with that comes the hint of getting jealous easily, I can be very controlling. So relationship wise, whoever is going to be with me has to love the flaws as well as the positivity in me.

I believe there’s a lady out there for every man. Have you found your kind of lady?
There is somebody but we’re not serious. I’m trying to see if we can get serious; we’re not calling it a name, we’ve not started dating and I’m trying to see how this can work because I’ve not dated in a while. I’ve had flings and sometimes really close friends but when it gets physical, it just kills everything; you now know that this can’t go beyond the physical. For me to date someone, I have to connect with that person on a very spiritual level, and I have to trust the person. Unfortunately, I’m not really that trusting anymore.

Would you be willing to reveal her identity? Could you tell me more about her?
No, because I don’t want to jinx it. I don’t like people butting their nose into my relationship. It really ticks me off, it takes the fun out of it. But she’s a very cool person, she’s patient. Sometimes when I lose it with my mood swings, she knows how to get me back on track. She tolerates me, she guides me a lot, tells me when I’m wrong in a way that is not like she’s attacking me.

What are your fondest childhood memories?
I was a very mischievous playful child, very adventurous. I was the one who would get all my friends dirty and we’d come back home and they would call me the instigator. Every day was fun for me. I can’t pick any moment.

You lost your father while in the Big Brother Africa 5 house. Please accept my condolences. How were you able to pull through that period in the house and still win the competition?
I was sad and angry. He left at a time when all my siblings had settled down except me, when it was time to make him proud. It pained me so much, I cried my eyes out.  I think being in the BBA house helped me accept it better because if I was at home and seen all the drama, I think I would have lost it.

Late Mr Nwachukwu & Mrs Nwachukwu

Tell me about your charity initiative, ‘Uti Leads the Stars’.
My Mum became a widow while I was in the Big Brother house and I know how worried I felt about her. Her husband was her only companion especially since all her children are grown and out of the house, I am the last born. So it got me thinking about other widows out there, the ones that don’t even have anybody to check on them, especially the poor ones. So on my birthday, I celebrated with the widows, took a lot of foodstuff to them and then for Christmas, we decided to bring more people from different homes and invite our celebrity friends to come and have fun with them and bring a gift along. It was awesome, I didn’t expect to see as many celebrities that turned up that day.

Was it a one-off thing or are you going to continue with it?
This year, I’m going to be 30 on August 3rd and I’m putting everything into Uti Leads the Stars 2. My fan club members have already started organizing and it’s going to be bigger and better.

Uti has decided to loosen his thick skin a little on BN and respond to questions and comments about him. So if you want to pass any message across to him or ask him a question, drop it in the comment box and he will respond to your question.

    • Yarie June 2, 2012 at 2:22 PM

      He seems very down to earth and friendly. But that temper and possessiveness he is describing, is a bit scary! At least he is aware of his flaws.

      Kai, this Uti is one COOL dude! Ah, ah! I respect how he dealt with the gay insinuations without speaking in tongues whilst headbutting the interviewer for daring to ask such. I truly admire articulate people and yes, Adeola Adeyemo, I agree with you for once. He came across as a rather down to earth, honest and gorgeous young man. I will pray over your jealous tendecies but Naija gals lie lie too much. Kai!

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 2, 2012 at 3:07 PM

      So, some of my dear black people dislike dreadlocks. They usually associate them with negative things. I think locks are beautiful and hella sexy on men. What inspired you to have locks?

    • gbeborun June 2, 2012 at 5:28 PM

      Uti seems like a down to earth bloke not pretentious because some people would have lied they really got 700k from glo, just a small correction with the interview its FOO FIGHTHERS not full fighters and as a massive fan of rock music myself i say all the best Uti.

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 2, 2012 at 6:14 PM

        thanx oo…the best thing i can be is honest with the people that love me

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 2, 2012 at 6:28 PM

      Uti u mean foo( not full) fighters right? Anyway, I remember when uti won BBA5 I screamed so hard, I lost my voice (mostly 4rm shouting ‘in ur face @ my sis who’s not really a fan), really happy uv gone this far. But one question though, to many, u come across as vain and arrogant, pls tell me its self confidence or is it? Lol

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 2, 2012 at 6:13 PM

        yes oo..its foo fighters..our reporter nor hear my fune well..hehe.
        no ooo im not vain and arrogant at all o…sometime people try to step on you cos u are you- so u gata put them in their place ..but im a mirror reflection..if u treat people good ..then i will

    • cathy June 2, 2012 at 5:39 PM

      @uti venturing into music, would you say it’s a wise choice? by the way i love your charisma and you sure are one looker

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 2, 2012 at 6:12 PM

        thanx a lot..na baba God giv me the charisma…everything we choose to do is a risk..without risks,there will be no success…so for music- its always been a part of me..im not going into it for mad money..its more like a passion ..a selected nos of people love it..if it becomes commercial..no wahala

    • IMA June 2, 2012 at 6:33 PM

      YES REALLY ITS OK ABEG ……UTI GO ATTEND TO ODA THGS.

    • Akindele June 2, 2012 at 6:34 PM

      Bros Uti, I too gbadun you. As we know how it is in Africa, once someone starts to make small change, a lot of people will want a piece of it. I just want to say please make sure you invest most of the ‘small change’ you make now. Don’t let parasites pull you down oh abeg. Giving is good but we have to balance it out. This is what is killing our finances in Africa…parasites :)

    • waliu June 2, 2012 at 6:47 PM

      Wow,Uti is so real & funny…Hope to meet and work with him someday…God bless u Uti!.

    • jane June 2, 2012 at 6:55 PM

      hi Uti, was never such a big fan of dreads but urs really looks good on you especially compared to the afro u used to favor before. Quick question: e be like say u no get 6 packs, becos i havent seen a pic of you without ur shirt and if you dont have WHY?????

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 3, 2012 at 12:47 PM

        lol@no get 6 pac….hmmm..u havnt seen me without my shirt on?..lets just say when im paid the right amount of money, then u can see all the topless photos of me…haha..till den i’ll jst say watch and see ;-)

        • jane June 3, 2012 at 7:05 PM

          so you mean that if you are paid the right amount of money you can come dance for us at a strip bar with the 6 packs n all… sounds good…lol

    • Purpleicious Babe June 2, 2012 at 7:20 PM

      … am actually WOW@ that he commentated back…

      But to be honest I dont think am a fan of u or fan of any celebraties but I like to treat pple as individuals.

      OK back to U.. so both your parents have passed a way…?? its says LATE MR & MRS IN THE PIC.

      That must be very emosh…

      I am sure they are proud of u..

      I also think u should NOT reveal the details of the secret girl..lol. ABEG dont let anyone pour sand in your garri or better still dont pour sand in your own garri…

      I have nothing more to say. Keep GOD CENTERED, JESUS FOCUSED, remember the home you came from. Continue to be a good role model and keep going..

        yeeeey!!!..lol

    • Gidi June 3, 2012 at 1:22 AM

      I will never knock this guy’s hustle.
      However i will forever have issues with these reality shows. They throw up folks with no discernible talent for the entertainment industry and suddenly they are stars and celebrities. Our celebration of mediocrity wrapped in looks is baffling. I am still struggling to decipher Uti’s talent as an actor or even a presenter.
      Besides being a very fine face (the boy fine no be small thing!) what else?
      Suddenly Karen too is a star and you wonder the talent in question.
      Reality shows like BBA are the worst thing to have happened to the entertainment industry in a very long time.
      Guy, make all the money you can and have fun. No be your fault at all.

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 3, 2012 at 1:01 PM

        habbbaaaaah…abeg sorry for us small na…how u go say we nor get talent?..lol…we dey work hard o..e nor easy…..you know entertainment is an alternative source of employment/income. we can’t all strive for the over saturated white collar sector. BBA is a great platform for people with talent. it teaches tolerance, patience, hardwork and off course in some, culture. we have to think outside the box. trust me with the way things are in Nigeria, if you don’t have talent, no one will look at you! afterall its not all of us that have been on reality shows that are still working till now- obviously its God’s favour mixed with the talent he blessed us with. have an open mind okay?…pele

        • Gidi June 3, 2012 at 8:44 PM

          open mind ke?
          Guy enjoy your hustle and i’ll never knock you for that. I wish you all the best.
          However when it comes to talent in acting, it is obvious.
          Another good example is how Weza is afflicting the eyes of innocent viewers of Inkaba in the name of acting. Reality shows are a big dent on entertainment. Not just in Africa but the whole world. It suits lazy TV producers and commissioning editors and promote mediocrity in the name of celebrity.

        • Purpleicious Babe June 5, 2012 at 11:07 PM

          LOOOL.. UTI either will find some of the comments hilarious and be done with laughter or feel bad…

          But I think you are a big boy as in, your mindset is pretty open and u dont take things personal.. or maybe you do but deal with it in a positive way. cos some of the truths are harsh, brash but none the less (has an element of truth)which I think you might agree too.

          But this is GREAT PLATFORM FOR PR..

          loves that u are doing this.. xxx

    • failedgovernment June 3, 2012 at 5:49 PM

      LOL@ his reply to the comments. I used to hate on this dude but this interview made me understand him better. Cool dude. He has a unique look that I like, very handsome. He’s a Leo, they are usually possessive. Nothing wrong with it, it’s not always bad, everyone has some type of possessiveness and jealousy in them, even the ones who act like they don’t. It’s all about balancing it out. I also like his honesty.

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 4, 2012 at 12:09 AM

        wow..im haooy you have now come to see the real me…im not so bad na abi?hehehehe…yes ooo..i possessive o…but like you said..its all about the balance. na my prayer be dat

    • yoooo June 3, 2012 at 6:14 PM

      Beverly Naya is the girl Uti is stalking about.You gave yourself out with too many clues plus you stepped out together at the awards “what what” sorry I forgot the name.But I must confess I hated you for what you did to Sheila. When I look at Beverly she has some common traits figure with Kwambox but a posh version, classy,better,polished and I understand some things that I can’t say here for the love and respect I have for Sheila.I’m a woman It hurts me too but I understand that a man like you metro,stylished,and all glamorous loves his women classy,at the top of their game.I heard you say that in bba.you tried with sheila but It was quite a challenge.its not all about feelings…but I’m wondering ooo Bev doesn’t strike me like spiritually strong,unlike uru eke her close pal,are sure about the spiritual bond?
      Anyway you deserve the best much love to you big brother Uti,from the bottom of my heart I wish you success and happy marriage in advance.wink.don’t forget my wedding Invitation ooo

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 4, 2012 at 12:12 AM

        awwwww..i didnt do anything to Sheila oo..she has even given an interview to clear the air..we didnt even almost date sef..we were too similar jor. lol….

Although we went to school together (High sch), I couldnt help but comment on this as i couldn’t overcome the temptation of doing this for the very first time on a website ( I mean to comment) but i must say you got me there. Well we’r all proud of you and all the hardwork and effort you’ve put in just to be where you are now. May God continue to guide you as you go higher and higher in your carrer. 1 Love. I hope your sisters are good if i can remember on Snr Ogugua??? lol

      ….Yea Uti…was wondering too what would be on their mind as the plane was going down?..May God bless their souls. Coincidentally, I was in the same flight (AriK) with you last December when I came visiting the country with my family. I saw u and was like ..eh this guy is so simple..!. I am proud of you and your humility. God will continue to bless and uphold you. Pls, no matter what success brings to you, never allow it into ur head, keep yor cool and remain humble and close to ur God. And to those who lost their lives again, I pray God will grant their family the strength to carry on. With love from Canada.

      I’m not Nigerian but I love Nigerian people so much, they are funny. Uti, you have a fan in Brazil. My BFF is Nigerian, she got me watching BBA online and reading Nigerian blogs. I like how you are responding to your fans. You are handsome, and funny.

    • Seriouslady June 6, 2012 at 4:49 AM

      Uti, I was not really a fan when you were in big brother the first time but since your second appearance in big brother, I have watched you grow. I love that you love God, I love what you do on jara, you were really funny in the home video with Genevieve and Majid(the okada driver) and you rocked in this interview. Keep being you…God would truly help you overcome any insecurities in relationships and your mood swings. Above all He will Bless you (if he has not already) with a woman that understands you and loves you for who you her. Keeping on soaring higher and higher…God Bless you.

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 7, 2012 at 10:56 PM

    • RITA June 6, 2012 at 10:18 PM

      I thank God for your life. I was impressed with your performance in BB3 before the incident. Firstly because I saw the “star’ factor and then you be bendel man and you really represented. I felt really bad when you were evicted. Immediately, you came for BBA All Stars , I knew it was your time and you did a great job, holding yourself throughout the 91 days. I am not surprised your career has grown because God is good and He gives people a second chance. You are really smart by giving Him all the glory and holding on to Him because without Baba God all roads fit close. God bless and remain humble, benevolent and maintain a strong growing relationship with Christ

      • Uti Nwachukwu June 7, 2012 at 11:02 PM

        amen oo..yes you couldnt have put it better. im happy you have come to understand the kind of person i am. and i will forever Glorify God cause without HIM..i would be nothing but dust

    • Amaka June 8, 2012 at 11:45 AM

      Uti, your interview was great. Ur blessed indeed. My question is still on the bond dat existed btw you and Sheila. You said ur girl is cool with the movie ie she doesnt mind. But dont you think dat Sheila’s man may mind the movie, he can get jealous of it as it does not all that portray brotherly – sisterly bond. What do you say?

      Hi Uti, i found your interview with BN very enriching. I must congratulate you, you are definitely a man of many parts; talented, down to earth, confident and with a lot of Charisma. I admire you as a model most i guess. Its like a natural for you i see. How would you define your character in BBA, would you say at any point you wanted to act like any of the past winners of BBA?In your perception would you say the contestants represented their countries and lastly if you had an aspect to change in BBA what would that be?. Believe it or not i’m one of those who feel we havent seen the last of you. Keep up the good work. God is faithful.

    • respect June 26, 2012 at 12:14 PM
