Season 5 of the reality TV show, Big Brother Naija started on a rather revealing note. There is the revelation of Laycon, the most trolled housemate so far and Nengi, a beautiful housemate and ex-beauty queen has joined the slow but steady growing list of housemates with one or two interesting twists to them.
Nengi’s popularity soared, initially not for the right reasons. First, there is the issue of age falsification and then the “Europe” issue which came up during a game with other housemates where she said Europe is not a continent. Gaffe or not, Nengi’s presence in the house came as noticeable after becoming the first season 5 edition housemate to win the Head of House (HoH).
Rebecca Hampson “Nengi” Biography
Nengi (born Rebecca Hampson on January 1, 1998), also referred to as Rebecca “Nengi” Hampson is a model, ex-Beauty Queen, entrepreneur and a former housemate in the Big Brother Naija (BBN) Season 5 (Lockdown) edition from Bayelsa State, Nembe/Brass LGA, a state in the oil-rich southern part of Nigeria.
Nengi is a graduate of Linguistics and Communication studies at the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT).
Nengi, a former model and ex-beauty queen made the top of the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) in 2017 and won two beauty pageants; Queen of Trust pageant (2013) and Miss Peace and Tourism. Nengi reportedly participated in the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) pageant but did not win any. However, she was able to make the top 5 MBGN in 2017.
Nengi was the first Head of House (HOH) of the Big Brother Naija season 5 “Lockdown” edition. She won the HOH and chose Wathoni as her deputy. Nengi was also the first housemate to reach 100,000 followers on Instagram.
She became the cynosure of all eyes and commanded a decent amount of followership as people perceived her as decent for not caving in to immoral exhibitions which seems to be a norm in the Big Brother House. Nengi bonded well with Laycon who won the show’s season five, particularly on Saturdays during the party.
As a former beauty queen, Nengi’s poise and class in the Big Brother House made her stand out and suddenly made her a strong contestant to the prize. She eventually became the season’s second runner up and moved on to become the most bankable Big Brother Naija Season 5 housemate with nearly endless endorsements and brand ambassadorship.
Nengi’s House & Cars
In March 2021, Nengi announced the acquisition of her house; a fully serviced four bedroom terrace duplex that was earlier advertised by Ramos of Lagos Reality on Instagram sometime in February of the same year. According to the real estate company, the house was advertised for N75 million ($166,000 at the time).

The following month after the house was advertised, Nengi announced buying the house where she has made her home to date.
Other than her house, the reality TV star also has up to three cars of which two are Range Rovers; a Range Rover Evoque (which she was gifted) and a Range Rover Velar, with the latter being the most recent which car dealers valued at N37 million. Nengi claimed she bought the car with her hard-earned money and we do not doubt this, considering the number of brands she works for as an ambassador.
