Ebuka popped up on our screen at 7 PM WAT and announced the beginning of the Big Brother Naija Lockdown Live Show dressed in a glittering cream jacket. He reminded the viewers of the biggest change this season of Big Brother, the updated Voting format, and the impact it has on the game this season.
If you missed that, this season all the Housemates are up for Eviction every week except for the Head of House and their Deputy. The public then Votes from Monday to Thursday, and the bottom four Housemates stand for Eviction on Sunday. Their Eviction is decided on by their fellow Housemates during a final Diary Eviction Votes Session, with a draw being decided by the Head of House. When the time came to find out who the four individuals on the chopping block were, the pressure in Biggie’s House was higher than you can imagine.
Upon hearing Lilo, Eric, Praise, and Ka3na were the four at risk of having their Big Brother stay come to an early end, the air of relief was quickly replaced with one of turmoil as the Housemates had to decide on who their Exit Vote would be cast for and why.
Biggie announced there would be an Eviction Votes Session in the Diary Room by saying ‘Big Brother would like you to vote two housemates from the four Housemates at risk of Eviction, for an immediate possible Eviction tonight. Please vote the two Housemates.’ First in the Diary Room was Brighto who chose Eric and Ka3na without hesitation. He was followed by Nengi who chose to Vote for Ka3na and Prince. Next in the Diary Room for their Eviction Votes Session were Dorathy, Kiddwaya, Erica, Laycon, Kaisha, Neo, Ozo, Tolanibaj, Tochi, Vee, Trikytee, Wathoni, Prince, and Lucy.
When Votes had been tallied, Ebuka announced the two people who would be leaving were Ka3na and Lilo. This definitely ends our first ‘ship of the season, the Eric and Lilo ship. The heartfelt goodbyes and walk out of the House signalled the end of the Housemates journies and the start of new ones. Ebuka then gave a recap of the Betway Challenge and shared how the whole House failed again at Arena Games.
Then it was time to get the whole story from the people it happened to. In her goodbye chat with Ebuka, Ka3na tearily let it be known that as far as her experience in the House went she wasn’t surprised that she had been Voted out as this is a game. She closed off by thanking the fans for her stay and promising that she would continue to grow her luxury brand.
When Lilo was given the chance to share with Ebuka and the world her thoughts on her time in the House. She shared that ‘She didn’t think she did anything wrong.’ Lilo also revealed that her feelings for Eric have not changed but was speechless when asked about her boyfriend on the outside. She will focus on her business and go in for her masters.
Ebuka then gave us a recap of the Saturday night party on before going back to the Housemates to bid them a final goodbye and reminded us all that the game is far from over.
