•As five housemates are up for possible eviction
Just two weeks into the show, the slogan for this year’s edition of the ongoing Big Brother Naija show, ‘See Gobbe’, a slang connoting commotion, is coming to bear, with the housemates now engaging in serious backstabbing, gossiping, outright confrontation and some perfidious strategy meant to edge one another out of the competition.
Reality of the game soon hit the housemates who had somewhat bonded so well in the first two weeks, when Soma and Miyonse were sacked from the show during last Monday’s live eviction show.
While the ladies shed tears crying out loud, the men showed signs of depression, but all that was for some few hours. By the next morning, they had warmed up for the next set of nominations which turned out quite surprising as Bassey, Bisola, CocoIce, Debie-Rise and Gifty were announced as the housemates up for possible eviction.
With last Sunday’s eviction still fresh in their memories, the housemates have come to understand the rule of the game, as they took turns in the diary room to nominate two housemates each, whom they wanted out of the house.
First up was Bally. He delayed the use of his green advantage card and nominated Bisola and TTT. New comer Debie-Rise nominated Marvis and Bisola while Kemen nominated Bisola and TTT. Next was CocoIce, who nominated TTT and Bassey; with TBoss going with Marvis and Bassey. For Bassey’s first nomination, he picked CocoIce and Kemen while Uriel nominated CocoIce (no surprise there) and TTT. Gifty nominated Bassey and CocoIce; and Head of House (HoH) Efe went with TBoss and CocoIce. Finally, TTT nominated Debie-Rise and Gifty; and Marvis nominated CocoIce and Debie-Rise.
At the end of the nominations, ‘Biggie’ called out CocoIce, TTT, Bisola, Debie-Rise and Bassey as the housemates with the highest nominations. As expected, HoH Efe was called on to save one of the housemates and replace with another. In less than 20 seconds, Efe opted to save TTT and put up Gifty in his place.
Speaking on the show, Martin Mabutho, General Manager, Marketing, MultiChoice Nigeria said: “The next few days will no doubt be intense as five housemates will do all it takes to secure their places in the competition”. He also added, “With as little as N1,800 you can join in on the Big Brother Naija experience which is available on all DStv packages and on GOtv Plus.”
The next eviction show holds on Sunday, February 12. And viewers in Nigeria are expected to text the word “Vote” followed by their preferred housemate’s name to 32052. While for the rest of Africa, fans are told to follow the AfricaMagictv official account on WeChat and click on the menu option ‘BBNaija’ and select their preferred housemate. Voting had opened at 21h00 WAT on Monday, February 6 and will close at 20h00 WAT on Saturday, February 11.
Sponsored by online retail store, PayPorte, the show is aired 24/7 in 45 countries from Nigeria through East, West and Southern Africa on all DStvpackages on channel 198 and GOtv channel 29.
