Makosi Musambasi Cancer, Scandals: What Happened After BB?
From scandals to Makosi Musambasi’s cancer battle, here’s what happened to the Nigarian diva after she left the Big Brother house.
Picture this: you’re sat on your sofa with your mum and dad watching Big Brother on Channel Four and a confident Makosi starts snogging the face of Geordie Antony Hutton – it’s awkward to watch at the very least.

Then things start getting steamier and next thing you know Makosi has demanded a pregnancy test…
Yep – like us, your jaw probably dropped all the way to the floor.
After Makosi left BB with scandal, she – unsurprisingly – had scandal follow quickly behind her. So, what happened to the Nigarian diva after she left the Big Brother house?
SPOILER ALERT: Quite a lot…
Makosi’s Time On Big Brother
Makosi, who calls herself the ‘black Diana’, used to be a cardiac nurse before she joined BB but she quit her job in order to appear on the show. In 2017, he explained:
“I auditioned for Big Brother because I wanted to win the £100,000 prize money and my mum needed an operation but I couldn’t pay for it on a nurse’s salary. Big Brother isn’t looking for someone who will sit in the corner and not do anything and I was top-class entertainment. When you entertain, you aren’t looking for people to love you – but you’re looking for them to have an emotion towards you.”
Immediately after the show finished – with Makosi finishing in 3rd place – rumours sparked that she struck up a romance with ladies man Russell Brand, who, at the time, presented Big Brother after hours show, Big Brother’s Big Mouth.
2012 – Makosi’s Arrested For Using A Relative’s Passport
It wasn’t only her relations with ‘Lothario’ Brand that meant Makosi hit the headlines. In 2012, on her return to the UK from Nigeria, the BB star was stopped by the UK Border Control.
After investigation Makosi was found to be using a relative’s passport and had £12,000 in her possession. As such, she was deported to Nigeria and is no longer a UK resident.
2017 – Makosi Musambasi’s Cancer Battle
In 2017, she underwent biopsies and CT scans, before being hit with the life-changing news that she had breast cancer. For treatment, she had chemotherapy and surgery to remove one of her breasts.
Makosi’s positive attitude after recovering saw her returning to modelling and she hit the runway in Dubai for a leading international fashion exhibit.

Discussing her return to the runway, she revealed:
“It’s one thing to see my naked body every morning, one boob short. I had a single mastectomy and being on the runway with so many beautiful girls gave me beautiful back. I don’t think I can ever put it in words.”
2018 – She Bagged Her Own Current Affairs Show
The former model now has a current affairs/lifestyle show in Nigeria called Makosi today.
