Big Brother Naija Brighto

Former Big Brother Naija housemate Brighto is set to make his Nollywood debut after landing a movie role.

The reality TV star announced on Thursday, September 10 on his social media pages that he had bagged a movie role.

Born Bright Ezekiel, the Edo indigene shared a video where he is seen sitting alongside actress Chinyere Wilfred who tells him to bring his best into the movie.

“You have to show yourself,” Chinyere tells him as he flashes the script before the camera.

The 29-year-old replied “Who am I, main mother?, adding that he would play the role “with all my chest”.

The movie written by Chinyere Wilfred is titled Spellbond.

Brighto, a trained marine engineer, thanked Chinyere for involving him in the movie and told his fans that he was just getting started.

“What a way to end a day filled with media rounds, Oh my! I never saw this coming!

“I just bagged a movie role 🎥 with the iconic @chinyerewilfred4real 🙌Mama, thank you so much for this, I am so grateful🙏

“Guyssss get ready!!! #brightsarmy We’re just getting started!!!🔥” he wrote.

This makes Brighto the first Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate to bag a movie role since leaving the house.

Brighto was knocked out of the show on August 30 in a triple eviction which included Wathoni and TolaniBaj.

TolaniBaj, 27, was the seventh housemate to be evicted; Wathoni, 29, became the eighth while Brighto was the ninth.

A grand prize of N85 million is up for grabs for the winner of the popular show.
