Here is all the drama/events that unfolded yesterday in the big brother naija house.
Just as the Pepper Dem Gang got prepared for the Eviction Show, Biggie hit them with yet another twist — Ebuka and Jidenna visited the House.
The Housemates were having their lunch in the lounge when suddenly Biggie announced, “Housemates, freeze!” If you saw the looks on their faces, you would think they had seen Big Brother himself for the first time. Ebuka along with the sensational Nigerian born American rapper, Jidenna walked in. Can you imagine their reactions? Read on.
Maybe ‘unbelievable’ would be an understatement if we could capture the thoughts of the Housemates as the two unexpected visitors stepped into the House. Like everybody else, the Housemates never imagined a visit. As expected, many of them couldn’t contain their excitement, freeze or not. Cindy nearly leapt for joy upon seeing Jidenna. Also, Diane, Omashola, Mike and Mercy had no choice but to resort to facial expressions.
A Tour Of The House
With the way Ebuka was chatting up Jidenna in front of the frozen Housemates, you would think he deliberately wanted to see their reactions. Oh yes, he did get some. From offering him the MunchIt snacks to asking his thoughts about the House, Ebuka sure knew how to pepper the Housemates any day. As he walked his visitor round the lounge where the Housemates were found in different awkward positions, (no thanks to Biggie’s ‘freeze’ order), some of them winked, some were all smiles, and others were just too conscious not to earn Biggie’s wrath. From the bedroom to the garden and the HoH room, Ebuka ensured his guest got an exceptional tour of the House.
As soon as the surprise visitors left and the Pepper Dem Housemates were asked to unfreeze, they screamed. Call it bottled emotions. Hail, O Biggie, the master planner of twists!
The Second Coming
Just when we thought that Biggie was done with the twist, we saw Jidenna come back into the House. But this time, he was alone and he came bearing a gift: cake. After an introduction section with the Housemates, he took them through his music career in the US. We could tell the Pepper Dem Gang had fun as some of them asked him questions. After a few hugs here and there, Jidenna, who was really enjoying the company of the Pepper Dem Gang, had to leave. It was indeed a fun moment for the Housemates and they sure won’t forget it in a hurry.
In the Pepper Dem House, one thing is certain — anything can happen.
Live Eviction: Esther And Sir Dee’s Exit
What’s the Big Brother Naija Live Show without some Eviction vibes? With this week’s Eviction twist, here’s how it all went down on the BB Naija stage.
Made To Slay
As is the norm, Ebuka our fine Host, stepped on the stage in a custom made outfit threaded by Vanskere. We like to point out that we weren’t the only ones who saw his designer’s outfit as the screams from the crowd told us that they appreciated every stitch put into the outfit Ebuka wore like a second skin. Let’s even check something, with the way he keeps peppering us with his outfits every Sunday, wouldn’t it be right to say Ebuka is part of the Pepper Dem Gang?
Anyway, we see you Ebuka and we have taken necessary notes to slay the way you effortlessly do.
The Eviction Twists
What? Going straight into Eviction on the Live Show? We sure didn’t see that coming. Anyway, in the Big Brother House, anything is possible.
The Housemates just had a surprise visit by Jidenna and right after that, they got thrown into the Eviction den. It’s truly the Pepper Dem Season. Unfortunately, the victim of this twist was Esther as she made her way out of the BB Naija House as the thirteenth Housemate to be Evicted.
More to the Eviction twists, tonight’s Live Show served us an interesting chat with one of the hottest international music stars, Jidenna. In his chat with Ebuka, he revealed how impressed he was with the production of the Big Brother Naija show. He also sounded excited as he told us that he would be going back into the House to serve some pepper to the Pepper Dem Gang. You don’t want to miss this, stay tuned!
Performing for the first time on the BB Naija stage, LAX brought some ‘Gwara ‘Gwara’ moves to our screens. As e dey hot on the stage, our very own Rasaki also dished out some ‘Ginger’ as he entertained the audience with his captivating performance.
Closing the show, he thrilled us with his sit single ‘Runaway’ and kept the ladies screaming as though he sang the lyrics to him. Thank you LAX, you’ll forever be engraved on the BB Naija stage for your wonderful performance.
Let’s Go Shake Some Tables
At this point, you already know who the president of the table shaking association is. Tonight was no different as Ebuka crossed into the House to shake and perhaps scatter some well-arranged tables.
Starting with Ike, Ebuka asked him about his Save and Replace decision. Here, Ike admitted that he Saved Omashola because, “whether he knows it or not, Omashola is part of the reasons he’s still in the House.”
In his chat with Ebuka, Mike admitted to having had conversations with Elozonam, Sir Dee and Tacha regarding Frodd’s attitude in the House. In his words, Frodd is overly defensive and every Housemate understands this; for this reason, they’ve decided to allow him to be himself.
This week’s HoH happily told Ebuka that with Gedoni out of the House, she decided to step up her game and not take things for granted, hence her drive to keep celebrating more wins in the game. Well done, Khafi!
A Curtain Call For Esther and Sir Dee
Like performers giving a final bow at the end of a show, Esther has bowed out of the Big Brother Naija game, leaving her as the thirteenth Pepper Dem Housemate to be Evicted from the House. While this spelt the end of the road for these two, it was an opportunity for Venita, Cindy, Frodd and Tacha to still get a shot at the game as they revealed in their reactions after Ebuka announced that they were all safe. From the expressions on their faces, one could tell they were grateful to still be in the game.
“It is what it is,” said Esther when asked about how she felt to be gracing the stage tonight. To the anticipation of all, Ebuka went ahead to ask her how she felt about her two love-interests in the House – Nelson and Frodd. Following her initial rejection of the latter, Esther revealed to Ebuka that she later got to know Frodd and found him to be a sweet guy. “To be determined,” was the answer she gave Ebuka when asked about the future of a relationship with either of the men outside the House. Well, we’ll definitely be on the lookout for this.
To wrap up her chat with Ebuka on the stage, Esther said her major highlight in the House, was winning the HoH title twice and being the first female Housemate to sit on the throne. With her plans to explore the entertainment world after the show, we can’t wait to see her excel in her acting plans. Watch out Nollywood!
Watch Esther Join Ebuka on Stage
Being the second Housemate to be Evicted from the House tonight and the fourteenth Housemate to take a bow from the Pepper Dem Season, Sir Dee was welcomed on the stage with loud cheers.
When asked about having feelings for Diane, the resident cool dude said he only had a “brother, sister” relationship with her and did not feel anything more for her. To him, he wouldn’t have had anything with Tacha in the House because he considered her as “too hot” to be in a relationship with.
He plans to go into his passion for graphics design and plans to take the business seriously outside the House. In addition, he would like to delve into the entertainment industry and try his hands on whatever may come his way in that field. Watch this space guys, Sir Dee is coming to your screens.
Seyi Wins Veto Power Title
After a game of high stakes, Seyi has won the veto power.
As usual, the Veto Power Game is a Game of Chance with each Housemates having an equal probability of winning. For having the least amount of marbles at the end of the Game, Seyi has become the Veto Power Holder for this week. This is the second time, he will receive the Veto Power badge in the Big Brother Naija House.
Housemates, Take Your Positions!
There were twelve stools with a silver cup on it. The Housemates were to pick a stool and stand in front of it for the game. Once they chose their playing stand, they were not allowed to change or swap position. Well, minds have been made we think.
Once that has been settled, the Housemates were to pick a card from the magic hat. Two types of cards existed in the hat. The first type of cards is those with single digits’ zero to six while the second type of cards had the instruction “pass two marbles to the person next to you.”
Having understood the rules of the Game, the Housemates proceeded to pick a card and place the corresponding number of marbles into their cups.
A Game Of Three Rounds
In the first round, the Housemates with the most marble were eliminated. In this case, it was Ike and Mike (hmm, this their bromance reared its head in the game too).
The process was repeated in the second round and the Housemates collected marbles which were added to the previous ones they had. When this round was over and the scores tallied, Venita and Omashola were out of the game for having the most marbles.
The third round saw Frodd, Seyi, Tacha, Cindy, Khafi, Elozonam, Mercy and Diane go through the card and marble process again.
We Have A Tie
At the end of the third round, there was a tie between Seyi and Tacha. Both Housemates had three marbles each which made the game extend into another round. This time, Seyi won as he had the least amount of marbles. With his position came 100 Bet9ja Coins and bonus coins for his teammates.
The Veto Power Holder will make a Save and Replace decision on Nomination Night, we hope Seyi is prepared for it.
