Thus, there are now 19 siblings of Neo Akpofure. He was brought up by his mother, who allegedly split from his father.

Neo was a 400-level student at the University of Calabar when he attended the Big Brother Naija auditions in 2019. He utilized the pandemic to appear on the show in 2020.
His father is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN). Neo was practically raised by his prison warden mother, who helped him become the fine man who won over Nigerians during the show. Unfortunately, Neo Akpofure’s parents split up soon after his birth. During the “get to know” session, Neo shared with his housemates how much his mother’s extraordinary fortitude affected him. She showed her strength and dedication by giving birth to him as a single mother inside a car.
Neo Akpofure has up to 19 siblings as a polygamous family member. Venita Akpofure, a well-known reality television star and actress, is one of Neo’s relatives. He also has a sister who goes by the name Obatare Akpofure, who trended for issuing a warning to Venita over her comments and disapproval of Neo and Vee’s relationship.
He has no children at the moment.

Neo and Vee, another housemate from season 5, had a romantic relationship. Despite their frequent arguments, the two continued to date while living together in the house. After the performance, they ultimately parted ways. Additionally, it was said that his cousin Venita opposed the union of Neo and Vee. A picture of Neo and former BBNaija Season 4 winner Mercy Eke sparked internet reactions and trended before the All-Stars version of Big Brother Naija. Maybe they were acquainted before. Little information has been provided thus far besides the image.
Neo is reportedly said to be worth an estimated $100,000.
Neo Energy’s cars are unknown to the media even though he takes and shares pictures on social media in different vehicles, but he has the means to own a few high-end rides, especially as he was once a driver.
He resides in Lagos.
Before being accepted into Big Brother Naija Lockdown season 5 in 2020, Neo worked as an Uber driver. Neo’s time in the house, it can be said, wasn’t wasted. He has partaken and won many tasks and received the monetary equivalent, as he was also among the top 5 finalists at the Lockdown edition. The Indomie Task was one of many events he has won on the reality TV show. After winning the Indomie task, he received a payment of 500,000.
Neo wagered N50K on a Mayorkun song that DJ Consequence had played at a previous Saturday night party to Vee and Laycon during a party among the Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemates on Sunday night. The dubplate for Mayorkun’s song “Of Lagos” included a list of all the housemates’ names. Laycon and Vee disputed that it was possible, but Neo was sure that Mayorkun did not remix the song to include their names. After leaving the house, they agreed to find out the truth and bet N50,000 to end the argument. Neo lost the bet as Mayorkun quickly rectified the situation on social media soon afterwards, claiming that he collaborated with DJ Consequence to create the distinctive “Of Lagos” featuring the housemates’ names.
On July 23, 2023, the venerable Big Brother Naija All-Stars returned, featuring Venita Akpofure and Neo Akpofure. The relatives-turned-housemates came together and pledged to weave a tapestry of talent and friendship. The show gained an exciting dynamic as viewers eagerly anticipated how Venita Akpofure and Neo would handle the upcoming difficulties. Neo has also been involved in a “situationship” with Tolanibaj on the All-Stars show. Their friendship and possible relationship are tested by other housemates and Tolani’s insecurities, especially against Illebaye, another housemate on the show.
