These ones will surprise you.

BBNaija, short for Big Brother Nigeria, is the new craze of the town. There's no denying it. There's no running away from it. In fact, if you're a Nigerian then you know that BBNaija news now haunts us E-VE-RY-WHERE. It's every other post on our news feed, it's every other notification, it's what everybody in your church and Whatsapp group is talking about. It is everywhere!

And this of course isn't new, this is how it goes every single year. This season is BBNaija Season 6. We're used to it. And this time around I've said to myself: okay, if you cannot beat them, join them! So this time around, I am watching Big Brother Nigeria.

My thoughts on that...are not why you clicked on this post today.

1. He really is a polymath as you're about to see.

When Yerins first introduced himself to us on the Big Brother Naija stage, he described himself as a polymath - meaning a person of wide knowledge. As you're about to see through the next points, Yerins was NOT JOKING.

2. He is a doctor

Yerins is a medical doctor. He studied medicine in Ukraine for nine years.

3. He is also a musician.

Yup! In addition to being a doctor, Yerins is actually also a rapper. And not just a "I tried it once and stopped" type of rapper, but a person who really went for it. He has a LOT of songs out. He even has 2 full EPs, Y.O.U and T.R.I.A.L.S

4. He is also a fashion designer.

Yes, Yerins is ALSO a fashion designer. This polymath thing was no joke when he said it. He has a fashion brand called Indigozz that produces custom shirts, jackets, etc.

5. He is also an artist.

Like, a visual artist. Professionally. Yes. Yerins makes art and as recently as April of this year, he held an exhibit where people actually came out to support and buy his art.

6. He is also into real estate.

On his website (which is unfortunately down now), Yerins used to have pictures of properties of real estate which he advertised to people who were interested in investing in real estate. There's still an archived version of the website and some pictures of some real estate he used to have on there. Yeah, he really also used to do real estate.

7. He also has a podcast.

When I tell you, this boy does not TIRE! Yes. In addition to all of this, Yerins also hosts a podcast called "The Polymath Show" that is available everywhere from Spotify to Google.

8. He is also a Youtuber

In addition to everything I've already listed above, believe it or not, Yerins is ALSO a Youtuber. He has a Youtube page on which he talked about topics like being a creative in Nigeria, as well as cryptocurrency stuff.

9. He is also a model.

Are you tired yet? Because Yerins is clearly not. Yerins is a model and has modelled for a number of photographers. He has an extensive modelling portfolio as well.

10. He also wants to become a writer

In a pre-show Big Brother Naija interview, Yerins revealed that he "has plans to write a medical book in the near future". Yet another occupation to add to his CV.

11. Outside of work...

Yerins likes to play chess and listen to music.

At least the boy dey try find time to relax. All this work, na wa!

That's All.
