TV’s Man of The Decade Ebuka On The Cover of SCHICK Magazine’s Summer Digital Cover
Host and TV’s man of the decade, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is on the cover of SCHICK Magazine‘s summer digital cover.
As usual, Ebuka looks fantastic in the cover photos. His entire outfits were rightly styled all thanks to Oluwatosin Ogundadegbe aka The Style Infidel and photographer Emmanuel Oyeleeke.
Ebuka who has done so much for himself and has a massive fan base, not just for his amazing hosting but also his style speaks about about his career in the entertainment industry, his childhood, family and journey so far in his conversation with SCHICK.
Ebuka spoke about his journey into the entertainment scene and how he got into the Big Brother Naija house in 2006.
He said, “I wasn’t really excited by the Law practice at the time. I wanted to study for a Masters abroad, then I saw an ad for this show with a $100,000 prize and that was all I needed. I really had no plans to go into the media or entertainment industry; I just wanted to win the money and disappear!”
Ebuka continued, “When I got evicted and saw the crowd outside screaming my name, I was like, wait, you mean this show is popular? I almost ran back into the House to re-strategise! It was a very eye-opening experience for me, but I was now also thrown into this world I knew nothing about; fame. I had to figure out how to make a life out of it.”
On how much his parents supported his career path:
The amazing thing is that [my parents] never ever told me what to study, nor did they ever try to stop me from pursuing a career in media. Were they skeptical about it? Of course. For a while, my dad would send me vacancies at traditional jobs to apply to, even when he knew I was doing okay on TV. It was more subtle than blatant. But I think they’ve come around now and I’m always grateful for how non-interfering they were.
On his childhood:
I was the last child for a very long time and my siblings are much older than I am, so for a while, I was the only kid at home. My older brother and sister were away in boarding school and I was mostly home alone with the folks, which meant that I got all the attention. The downside to getting all the attention though, is that you also get all the discipline and tough love. But, it was still mostly happy times.
My parents were very deliberate with that. My siblings and I, for one, don’t have English names. Also, only Igbo was spoken at home because my parents believed that we would learn English at school anyway. I’m super grateful for that deep-rooted connection we got.
Self-worth is everything. My father is the epitome of carrying his head high and walking like he owns the world, whether he’s going through a tough time or not. It can be misread by people, but I’ve learned to carry it without any apologies. Confidence is such a powerful tool.
On how he met his wife Cynthia:
I met her on Twitter. We followed each other, DM’d a few times and then kept it moving.
The connection wasn’t instant, but over time I think I realised that, beyond how much of a happy person she is, our values aligned so strongly that an attraction started to form. It also helps that she has the biggest smile in the world and laughed a lot at things I said and vice versa. From the day we started talking seriously, I knew literally 2 months later that I wanted to marry her.
We talk about any and everything. Nothing is off-limits and that honestly helps. Knowing that, at the end of the day, you’re excited to go back home and tell your partner how your day went and hear theirs… it’s the ultimate connection for us – talking. It helps that we both like gist!… We’re evolving into a true partnership and I’m hoping it can only continue. Still, a long way to go.
On his Impeccable fashion sense:
I don’t mind it. I also don’t mind being known for being stylish; doesn’t harm me in any way. I just don’t want to be known only for that. I have a whole career with too many parts to simply be seen as ‘the fashion guy’ on Instagram. As long as people appreciate it, but also recognise it as one of my many parts, I’m good. Just don’t make it what I’m all about.
