Big Brother Naija: The Week That Was…



Week 4 in the Big Brother Naija season 4 house has been a rollercoaster for the housemates.

Catching zzz

Show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu did not hide his unhappiness with how the housemates slept frequently during the daytime. He advised housemates that it was okay to argue but they should not be confrontational. The housemates in an effort to avoid sleeping still caught snoozes every now and then. Finally, Omashola confessed to fellow housemates Diane and Thelma how the house had become plagued with sleep. Diane and Thelma could not help but agree with Omashola. Mike acknowledged in the diary room the sleep epidemic had made the house boring.


Monday evenings and its associated thrills of nomination gave the housemates an uncomfortable stir.

  • Jackye nominated Frodd and Thelma
  • Ike nominated Jeff and Nelson
  • Thelma nominated Esther and Sir Dee
  • Gedoni nominated Thelma and Omashola
  • Frodd nominated Jeff and Nelson
  • Mercy nominated Jackye and Jeff
  • Omashola nominated Thelma and Frodd
  • Diane nominated Mike and Jackye
  • Nelson nominated Jeff and Khafi
  • Khafi nominated Jeff and Thelma
  • Sir Dee nominated Omashola and Thelma
  • Esther nominated Jeff and Omashola
  • Mike nominated Khafi and Frodd
  • Jeff nominated Khafi and Ike

Save, replace or twisted?

From the nominations, the housemates with the highest nominations were Jeff with six, Thelma with five, Khafi, Frodd and Omashola with three nominations each.
Big Brother called out for possible eviction on Sunday; Khafi, Gedoni, Jeff, Diane and Omashola.

“Why bother calling individual names…” Big Brother thought aloud.

Big Brother thereafter asked all housemates to be up standing, placing them all up for eviction on Sunday.

Housemates were accused by Big Brother of lacklustre attitude and being disrespectful to house rules.
The Head of House position which was deliberately made vacant by Big Brother denying anyone the power of immunity. Veto Power holder Khafi was on the other hand was denied the power to save and replace, since she would not have anyone to replace the saved housemate with.

The return

The housemates were told by Big Brother to expect their first house guests. Housemates cleaned the house thoroughly and cooked a bountiful dinner for the guests. Some housemates unable to hold the suspense speculated Nigerian musician Don Jazzy might be the guest.
Sitting in the lounge with attention turned to the eviction door, housemates with mixed emotions welcomed Seyi and Tacha back to the house. The duo read an appreciation letter to their fellow housemates after eating the meal set before them.
Was everyone excited?

“We were all excited when you left…” Mike confessed to Tacha during his speech to the guests.

A number of housemates like Esther could not hide their pleasure with Mike’s statement.

“I can’t believe I wasted my dress and makeup,” Mercy said to her friends, expressing her displeasure.


This week the housemates, under the theme ‘Back to school,’ wagered 100% of their shopping allowance on their weekly tasks. The weekly tasked ranged from painting a fellow housemate, teaching at least one housemate a childhood song, poem or game, and organising a debate. The Thursday night presentation which did not please Big Brother still made housemates win their shopping wager.

Arena Games

Big Brother put together a city crime scene with various tasks for the arena games. After puzzles, shooting targets, picking beans and work outs, Sir Dee emerged winner winning 400 Bet 9ja coins.
