Neo Akpofure made his entry into the show business scene with his participation in Big Brother Naija season 5. He left the show on the last day as one of the top 5 competitors.

Since the show ended, he has celebrated his wins. He shared with his followers and fans the moment he bought his house in Lagos.

"February this year, I was hustling to pay rent for my self-contain apartment. Last day of 2020, I’m moving into my house in LAGOS. OLUWA ON GUARD."

This time around, Neo shared another landmark in his life, when he boarded a plane to leave the shores of Nigeria for the first time.

He tweeted
Finally left Naija for the first time...God that did it for me would do it for you too.
P.S Ghana is Beautiful

He and his partner Vee were invited to Ghana by their shippers to celebrate them.

The reactions he got on his tweet were from people who shared in his excitement and appreciated his humility.
This tweet is very humbling and you are blessed. This is only the beginning of your many lovely trips. Have fun and be safe!

Neo contested in Big Brother Naija season 5 and was identified as the loud person in the house. He has been compared to Efe and Omashola of previous seasons, who were also the loudest and share a common residential area: Warri.

In the house, he was romantically linked to Vee and they have remained together since the show ended last year.
According to the organizers of the event, plans were made within 24 hours to get Neo and Vee to Ghana. At the airport, they were welcomed by traditional singers and pressmen.
Over four news stations were present at the arrival terminal, including Ghana’s Joy News.

On her Twitter page, Vee tweeted:

‘I feel like I’m in a REAL African country. Ghana just oozes of culture. It’s so passionate.

Aside from the fact that I specifically asked for privacy, Ghanaians are the most welcoming people ever! Couldn’t help but smile when I saw y’all’.

Neo is the cousin of actress and reality TV star Venita Akpofure, who also graduated from the Big Brother show. We recently wrote about her experience in the hands of a real estate company. 

Though Venita and Vee have Neo and first alphabets in common, there is no love lost between those two women.
