Liquorose (Roseline Omokhoa Afije) is 26-year-old contestant on the Big Brother Naija (or BBNaija) Season 6 reality show. The show kicked off on 24 July 2021, but it was not until 25 July that viewers laid eyes on Rose and the other female housemates. The organisers, in an attempt to spice things up, chose to unveil the male housemates only, on the first day.
Roseline Afije is one of the few housemates with an already large fan base before she even stepped foot on the reality show. Her Instagram account already had over 700K followers because she is a member of the all-female dance group GGB Dance Crew (also known as Girls Get Bold Dance Crew). Likely, her already built followership gives her an edge to win the competition, who knows?
Regardless, it will be a stiff contest for the NGN90 million grand prize, and we can’t wait for the drama that will come out of it. Let us go into more details about Roseline starting with a summary of the top ten facts about her.

Early life and education
Liquorose was born Roseline Omokhoa Afije on 31 March 1995 in Nigeria, and she turned 26 years old in 2021. She is currently based in Lagos State, but she is an indigene of Bini, Edo State. Her father and mother are still alive, and she has siblings, although not much is known about them. We found only information on her older brother, who uses the internet moniker Ggucci.
After her primary school education at Itire Nursery and Primary School, Rose went on to Del International College in Ijeshatedo, Surulere. Then, she got admitted into the University of Lagos (UNILAG), to study Christian Religious Studies, and she graduated in 2019.
Liquorose has always been a creative and dancing came natural to her. She told fellow housemates during the 2021 BBNaija show that she has been in front of the camera all her life. However, she likely started making a name for herself in 2012 after appearing as Charity in the “The Johnsons” sitcom.

Then in 2014, Liquorose and her two friends, Emmanuella Odiley (@ellaley) and Ifeoma Efiokwu (@E4ma_), formed the dance group GGB Dance Crew (also known as Girls Get Bold Dance Crew). Before long, their dance videos began to gain traction and the fame extended to the individual members as well.
As for Rose, her versatility kept her showing up in several productions in different capacities. For example, as an actress she was in “Bankers NGR” series, “The OAP”, “HEX” and more. Meanwhile, as a video vixen she was in “Your Waist” by Iyanya, “Goody Bag” by D’Prince, “Antisocial” by Morell (feat. Olamide), “Durosoke” by Olamide.
This is not all, she has also appeared as a model for Wodibenuah clothing brand and Pulse.ng, and also promoted skin care products for Rixari cosmetics and the Infinix Hot 10T for Infinix Nigeria. Part of her work as a brand influencer includes promoting music and she recently did a gig for Mr P’s “The Prodigal” album.
Career wise, Rose Afije says that she wants to make a name for herself as an A-list actress and a writer. Before dance took over her Instagram page, Liquorose used to write and post poetry and think pieces. It appears that while she has stopped posting them, she is working on either a debut novel or a poetry collection behind the curtains.
Liquorose is single as she has not revealed her boyfriend (or girlfriend). She also revealed that despite spending much of her time in front of the camera, she is still a shy person. In fact, her moniker ‘Liquorose’ came from her shyness. She came up with the name after her mother’s adage of alcohol not being shy.
So, her nickname is a combination of Liquor and Rose (her first name). In addition to being shy, the internet personality is a tomboy most of the time. Although, she says that she can turn up the glam when it is required.
Besides dancing and acting, she loves writing, reading, and cooking. Liquorose reveals that she also loves drama and would usually be in the middle of a fight either as one of the culprits or as the peacemaker. She only draws the line when it comes to food and men, saying that she would not be found fighting over these two things.
As Rose herself has said, she has been making money from her various gigs for a long time. However, we are yet to find concrete proof of Liquorose net worth as she is yet to declare this herself. There are several fabricated figures about how much she is worth, and it will be wise to digest these details with a pinch of salt.

Already, we can see the impact of the BBNaija Season 6 fame on Liquorose career. Her Instagram account has shot up to nearly a million followers from the 700K+ figure it was hovering around before she came on the reality show. Though, her account is not yet verified.
The “Shine Ya Eye” housemate has already proven true to many of her claims by showcasing her creative talents through dance, workout and intelligent suggestions. Viewers are also already shipping Liquorose and Emmanuel, and we will have to see if a relationship develops between them.
Liquorose wins Head of House
Liquorose emerged as the Head of House (HoH) in the fifth week of Big Brother Naija, (or BBNaija) “Shine Ya Eye” edition. She got 21 points during the Game of Balls at The Arena and chose Boma as her deputy.
While the win gave her immunity from eviction that week, she could not enjoy one of the perks of being HoH; that is, using the Head of House lounge. This was because she was banned from the lounge because of an infringement.
Maria and Pere are BBNaija Season 6 wildcards
BBN or BBNaija fans were already predicting that Liquorose is one of the wildcards placed in the house to give the show a new twist. What does wildcard mean? In Big Brother Naija terms, a wildcard is a fake housemate that is not in the competition for the grand prize or any other for that matter.
Viewers think that Liquorose is one of the wildcards because of how famous she already is before even entering the house.
However, during the dairy session on Thursday, 29 July 2021, Big Brother revealed to viewers that Maria and Pere were the wildcards. Although, the housemates still have to uncover them themselves, or they remain on the show. Also, it is interesting that Maria was able to guess that Pere was the other wildcard during her dairy session. Her manipulating the housemates into thinking she is on their side in trying to fish out the wildcards has gotten her more fans.
