Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, a well-known media figure and the presenter of Big Brother Naija (BBN), the top reality program, has joined the discussion about the new ‘cats’.
Ebuka claimed to be one of those who “blew up the hosting game in the entertainment industry” in a post on his social media page.
He continued by saying that he was pleased to hear fresh cats, like comedian Bovi, serve as hosts.
“Everybody knows. I was one of the first to blow the hosting game up. So it feels good also seeing the new cats coming up, like Bovi…”
Comedian Bovi took to his Instastory to reply to Ebuka as he wrote:
“First to do….. @ebuka you grew up in bendel like me.
So complete this poem.”
In the comment section of Ebuka’s post he added:
GISTLOVER recalls that Davido caused a buzz on the internet on Thursday when, in an interview, he referred to Burna Boy as a new cat, a term many believe represents fast-rising artists.
During the interview with Brut, Davido stated that he and Wizkid are the pioneer artists who paved the way for the global recognition and popularity of Afrobeat music, before artists like “Burna Boy, Rema, Asake,” whom he referred to as “new cats,” entered the scene. He said:
“Everybody knows that I was one of the first, along with Wizkid, to blow up. It feels good to see the new cats coming up, like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Asake, and Mayorkun,”
