Big Brother Naija winner, Efe, is not only popular for winning 25 million Naira and a brand new KIA Sorento car, he also popular for the now widely used slang, "based on logistics.'

In an interview with Pulse Nigeria, the former housemate explained the origin of the slang. According to him, "Based on Logistics" is an everyday word to him, just like 'good morning.'


"It was back in 2013, I actually contested in 'Just Bring it On,' organized by Kevin Pam, where I won in the rap category," Efe started.

So, when in the house, they were having different logistics problem. So, anytime their rep comes to talk to the housemates, he will say 'because of logistics we couldn't do this.'

So, before he completes his statement, I will explain to them and say 'based on logistics, that's why this hasn't been provided,' stuffs like that.

"The slang grew in the house. I kept using it and since then, it has been a regular word for me among my peers and friends.

"I didn't know it was that significant until I came out of the house. I was confused. Like, I'm currently overwhelmed. I just go everywhere and I hear 'based on logistics.'

"For me it's like a normal word like 'good morning."
