Early Life, Childhood and Education
Elozonam Ogbolu, a Nigerian movie actor, singer, music producer, reality TV star, and social media influencer, was born on March 4, 1986, in Ikeja, Nigeria, to Mr. and Mrs. Ogbolu.
Although Elozonam BBnaija was born and raised in Ikeja, Lagos State, his birthplace is currently unavailable to the public. He is, however, a Southerner by region, a Nigerian by nationality, and a Christian by religion.
Elozonam is most likely an Igbo by tribe, based on his first and last names.
Elozonam received his primary education at a Catholic school before transferring to ISL, a secondary school located at the University of Lagos in Nigeria. He went on to study economics at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, in Ghana.
Before entering the BBNaija House in 2019, Elozonam was a movie actor, self-employed television producer, and music artist.
He appeared in the popular Ndani television drama series “Rumour Has It,” and he also played the lead in the film “Charmed.”
Elozonam had intended to use the BBNaija prize money to make a feature film, but he finished eighth in the reality TV show and could not make it to the grand finale, which was eventually won by Mercy Eke.
Before entering the house, Elozonam described himself as silly and playful, with the intention to bring that side of himself to the house.
Elozonam Ogbolu has stated that his participation in the Big Brother Naija reality show has enabled him to achieve the majority of his career goals.
He told Sunday Scoop, “BBN is mostly responsible for everything I have been able to achieve so far.” One has to start from somewhere and work one’s way to the top.
However, before BBN, I had appeared in a cinema movie. I recently appeared in my second cinema movie where I played my first major role.”
Reminiscing on his career, he said, “It has been a journey of self-discovery. It has really been interesting because I have been able to do things that ordinarily would have taken me a long time to achieve. Indeed, it has been an educational and humbling experience.”
Elozonam has released several singles, including “Gone,” “Egwu M,” “Bad Chic,” and “Hug My Pillow,” as well as an 8-track album titled “A weird mix of trumpets and Hi-Hat” on March 12, 2019. Joel Godfrey self-produced, engineered, and co-produced his songs and album.
“The Garri Song,” a song about the Nigerian delicacy garri, was his album’s hit track. Elozonam also makes videos for YouTube and other social media platforms. He has thousands of subscribers and followers on YouTube.
He was one of the nominees for the award of “Best Online Content Creator” in the just concluded Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Award that was held on May 14, 2022 at the Eko Hotels, Lagos.
