Adewale Adeleke, older brother of singer, Davido, has slammed BBNaija viewers.
Adewale stated that most Nigerian youths are “lame as hell” as they spend time watching Big Brother Naija, instead of making money.
Adewale’s comment comes after former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, slammed Nigerian youths for showing little or no interest in National issues but are ardent followers of BBNaija. Read here.
Adewale shared FFK’s post on his Instastories and added; ”Y’all lame as hell watching big brother like your life depends on it! Go make some money”
It’s the third week in the Big Brother Naija House and a topsy-turvy journey for the housemates. With all kinds of drama from the mundane food wahala to nomination suspense and task tensions, it’s safe to say the housemates’ true colours are beginning to show and we are loving it!
Just in case you missed all the drama from the ‘Pepper Dem’ housemates last week, no worries, we got you. Here is theghen-ghen gist that has gotten us hooked.
Just when we thought we recovering from the shocking double eviction of Avala and Isiloma some weeks ago, Biggie stunned us with yet another double eviction that saw Ella and KimOprah leave the house. We will definitely miss KimOprah’s beautiful face and Ella’s sweet voice, maybe she would have done better during the ‘Pepsi Know the Lyrics’ challenge because her voice is a head-turner.
2. Seyi the Superhero?:
Just like the previous week, Biggie called the housemates into the diary room to nominate two housemates they wanted to put up for possible eviction. At the end of the nominations, Tacha, Frodd, Tuoyo, Seyi and Mike topped the list. Meanwhile, Seyi had a veto power to save and replace himself, but as the ‘superhero’ that he is, Seyi gave up the veto power with the consequence of not getting to participate in the Veto power challenge ever again in the house. Could this be his strategy to win? Will this work for or against him? Only time will tell.
3. Girl Power:
It’s time up for the guys as the ladies have decided to take things over from them. The week started with choosing who the Head of House would be with the Memory Challenge task. Esther emerged winner and became the first female Head of House. So far, her tenure has been splendid with the support of the other ladies in the house.
In this same week, Jackye won the Pepsi ‘Know the Lyrics’ challenge after a long battle that spanned the entire day. Earlier in the game, Tacha had pointed out that ladies be given an opportunity to be a part of everything happening in the house. It definitely is girl power time and the ladies are not taking it lightly at all.
4. Khadoni Ship sinking?:
Shortly after a long and hard practice for the Pepsi ‘Know the Lyrics’ challenge, Khafi decided it was time to set things straight with her “estranged” house heartthrob, Gedoni. She was not happy with the energy between them since Kim left the house and it looked like he had been avoiding her.
All indications suggest that Gedoni may have opted to taking a break from steering their love boat. However, apologies were made and the love birds made up; right after the this, the emotional Khafi broke down in tears midway into their heart-to-heart talk.
Would these two “love-captains” steer their boat and stand the test of time or are they headed for an ultimate shipwreck?
5. Pepsi ‘Know the Lyrics’ Challenge:
Since the theme for the week was ‘Singing’, Biggie had the housemates do a lot of singing for their tasks including the Pepsi ‘Know the Lyrics’ challenge. The Pepsi challenge is for each housemate to learn their chosen lyrics and simply sing along to their part of a song whenever the song is played. It was quite amusing to watch the housemates prepare hard for the challenge, the fights for unity and the funny pronunciation of ‘Olu Omo’ from Mike got social media laughing.
Interestingly, Jackye and Seyi made it to the final, where Jackye defeated Seyi to become the winner of the challenge.
6. “One Voice” Wager Won:
The wager week seemed really good for the housemates as they had a lot of singing to do. After days of intensely rehearsing their song, with Sir Dee and Khafi egging them on every move, Esther asserting her authority as Head of House and compliance from most of the Housemates, they ended in victory.
The wager presentation was a reflection of love amongst the housemates and they managed to pull it off. Biggie announced that they won their 100% wager and a roar of ecstatic cheer lit up the arena. Esther was exceptionally elated as the wager was won under her rule as Head of House. Obviously, all their efforts paid off.
7. Bet9ja Friday Arena Challenge:
After Esther read the instructions to the Housemates from Biggie, there was a moment of excitement and anticipation as to who will paint whose face in preparation for the Arena Games. Biggie had asked the housemates to paint each other’s faces with some rules guiding each painting. The Arena games started after a few hours of the painting.
To everyone’s surprise, Omashola won the circus game, winning 400 Bet9ja coins, while Seyi came second with 200 Bet9ja coins.
The game is getting really tough and peppery. Esther and Jackye won the face painting task while we await Tacha’s judgement for breaking Biggie’s rules. Still the week for the Girls!
Which housemate will be evicted this weekend? Whose love will boat will sink or swim? The Pepper has just started, the game has just begun, let’s see who will take the ultimate ‘pepper dem crown’. Stay Tuned

With a shrinking number of Housemates, the competition for the Head of House title has intensified.
For this week’s Head of House challenge, Biggie gathered the Housemates into the Arena and gave them clear instructions for a peculiar game. In a guys vs girls contest, each Housemate was fitted with plastic cups tied onto the wrists, knees and feet. They had to run to the end of the Arena and place the ball into buckets. From the side benches where they were seated, Housemates looked totally puzzled as after three weeks, they had learned the hard way, that Biggie always has his way.
Don’t Be So Serious
Understandably they looked unconvinced and somewhat hesitant, which worried Biggie. To reassure them, Biggie sent two Ninjas into the Arena to give a live demonstration of what he expected, cause Biggie joked ‘ain’t nobody got time for that’. This unexpected stroke of humour from Biggie cracked Housemates up and also considerably lightened the mood, a much-welcome respite from the grieving atmosphere that has cloaked the House since the first Evictions. Biggie really does have a dry sense of humour as he has proven in the past as he seemed to have enjoyed inflicting twisted and torturous punishments upon the Housemates.
Forever the gentlemen, the guys first helped fit their female pairs with the rather odd equipment of empty plastic cups and cheered them up from the back of the room, as they played the game. While the spirit of solidarity seemed to have grown even stronger since the fateful Evictions, Cee-C kept Anto on the corner of her eye as she didn’t like her pairing with Tobi.
Against all odds, representing the boys, Leo, Miracle, as well as Ifu-Ennada and Ahneeka on the girl’s side were shortlisted to run for the last Head of House challenge. Tune in after the Nomination show tonight to find out who will be the winner.
As the possibility of being evicted looms on the horizon, the Housemates seem to be full of raw emotion, tension and wild energy.
It could have been the alcohol, pre-show jitters or just something in the air, needless to say there were lot of tears flowing through the Big Brother House last night. First Lolu absolutely broke down to his core after DJ Exclusive recognised him at the Saturday party. Was it all just a star struck burst of emotion or was Lolu feeling some type of way in accordance with some kind of strategy? Later in the night, a few of the Housemates had some deep midnight chats, consequently Alex also has an emotional explosion, saying that she will be the one to go home tonight. Both Leo and Khloe ran to her aid and comforted her and Khloe told her that it was “just a game”.
Tonight is the Live Show and the Housemates are fully feeling the heat. After Biggie requested that everyone start getting prepped, the gossip began to flow. Princess openly stated that she hopes she is not going home tonight because she wants to get Tobi and Cee-C out the House. She also spoke about Karma where she was secretly, not so secretly referring to Cee-C. Meow! Angel and Ahneeka also had an interesting “romantic” conversation last night where Angel asked Ahneeka to be his “special babe” in the House. After slapping him with some rules, she agreed. Really feelings or strategic move? Only time will tell
After all the action, gossip and tense exchanges last night, there is a weird energy in the House. Even though everyone is getting primped, preened and glammed up to the nines, all the Housemates are visibly tense. Apart from Angel who is all smiles. Alex has been stressed since waking up, Tobi has been very scarce and Anto has been extremely vocal, sharing her opinion on everything from hair to her opinions about work and life outside the House. All the Housemates are awaiting their fate tonight and even though no one will actually be evicted, the dynamic will definitively experience some big changes. Biggie knows how to shake things up.
Nigerian songstress Niniola opened this third BBNaija Live Show to a delirious audience with her hit Maradona.
As a new week started, Host Ebuka took a moment to chat Housemates up, poking Cee-C and Miracle about their relations with Tobi and Nina. Well Cee-C couldn’t stand being put on the spot as she hid her face behind Tobi’s shoulder. While Miracle embarrassed grin forced him to shyly look away.
There was so much more bang for Big Brother’s bucks tonight, as Host Ebuka grilled the Nominated pairs further. He called on Pritto, Loto, K_Square, Angelifu and Bamteddy to rise only to Save Loto and K_Square. One could have heard a pin drop, as the remaining Nominated pairs held their breath. In the heat of the moment, some serious teeth grinding, eye twitching and fist tightening happened.
After a brief interlude to chat other Housemates up, Host Ebuka casually informed the Nominated pairs that it was actually a big fat and fake joke, that they were Safe and that the real Nominations were only just about to start. No one expected that it would be self-composed Anto who upon hearing the news fell on her knees, hand-wiping tears and shaking of relief. It also came as a surprise that Lolu collapsed into Alex’s arms to be hugged while loudly wailing, although his sobbing was covered by louder shouts of joy.
Riding the wave of respite, Host Ebuka introduced a hips-shaking game to shortlist the runners to the Head of House title. In the Arena, the ladies of the House gracefully though hysterically executed themselves, and Khloe, Ifu-Ennada and Bambam emerged as the triumphant trio. Then the guys of the House had their turn, but their performance was so out-of-sync and so loud that within seconds, Big Brother interrupted the game, disqualifying all of them in one breath. Poor guys – the look of defeat on their faces was priceless as they dragged their feet out of the Arena. But defeat as the saying goes is only a bad news.
Just as the theme says, “Double Wahala”, the 2018 edition of Big Brother Naija won’t stop to thrill its viewer as the Housemates are all kind of people with questionable pasts.
Maybe Alex had said too much for the national TV, to have shared with a fellow housemate Leo an heart-breaking story of how she was almost rapped by a doctor who conducted an abortion for her at the age of 16.
And trust Nigerian internet won’t let a second pass before dropping their reactions, some are positive and other are not.
