  1. Sen. Dino Melaye is right in his description about Mike. He maturely and respectfully carried himself till the end. When he earns my honour was how he maintained and controlled himself as Tachaa was descending on him.

  2. As for me, Mike of Big Brother Naija is a very wonderful ,fantastic and energetic young man of the house. I still loves him despite the fact that he didn’t make it to be a winner of that #60million. Well,Congratulations to the winner, Mercy many happy in return.

  3. He has really shown maturity in the house,I like him for that and to crown it all Senator Dino Melaye has given his candid opinion on his personality and now the show is over.

  4. If the majority can stand for him then I believe his reputation has been held on high esteem for making people respect him so much even to the extent of the senator dino noticing your gentleness I must say truely you are an image all African men should look in the eye

  5. Mike is a gentle man to a fault. There’s no pretence in his attitude, he is genuine not faking for the sake of winning BBN. I trust his wife will enjoy her marriage with him. Thank you BBN for exposing such a genius.

  6. To be sincerely speaking Mike is a cool and gentle guy. He tried his possible best to emerged the list of finalist. But God know the best. Mercy is not compare to Mike in the show. But fans show her love to claim the winner. The first young female to win BBN show in the history.
