The ongoing reality TV show ,Big Brother Naija, has taken a new twist as housemates are now doing last minute alignment as the show gradually winds down.
The show which started two months ago has so far witnessed the eviction of fifteen housemates; as beauty queen and Nollywood actress, Venita was shown the exit door last Sunday.
Meanwhile, four top housemates,Seyi,Tacha,Khafi and Mike are up for possible eviction this Sunday, leaving fans and followers in suspense as to who amongst them will be evicted.
With eleven housemates remaining, the likes of Mercy, Diane, Elozonam and lover boy Ike are beginning to form cliques by putting up housemates they perceive to be threats to their chances of winning the N60 million naira prize money.
On the other hand,the trio of Seyi, Mike and Omashola who are obvious contenders and big threat to other housemates from the beginning of the show are also coming up to outsmart their rivals.
Interestingly, our Port Harcourt first daughter, Tacha, gave fans something to talk about again this week as she insulted her friend, Seyi during last Sunday’s live eviction.
While responding to a question put across to her by the 2019 Big Brother Naija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Tacha said she had no issues with Seyi but that he sometimes acted childishly and went further to throw a jab at him, saying, “What I have achieved at 23, he has not achieved at 33”.
As the game gets tougher, the housemates are showing their true colours and they are doing everything possible to outsmart one another to ensure they remain in Biggie’s house till the last day.
However, housemates, Khafi Kareem, Mike Edwards, Tacha Akide and Seyi Awolowo have been put up for possible eviction this week.
Also, Cindy Okafor has emerged the current Head of House.
The eviction list was announced on Monday night in the ongoing BBNaija season four.
For the 11th week, Biggie continued with the process of populating the eviction nomination list as housemates did the nominations.
Seyi nominated Tacha and Khafi, Mercy nominated Omashola and Tacha while Frodd nominated Mike and Ike for Eviction.
Also, Omashola nominated Mercy and Tacha, Khafi nominated Seyi and Mercy and Tacha nominated Seyi and Mike for Eviction.
Mike Nominated Omashola and Tacha, Ike Nominated Diane and Khafi, and Elozonam put up Frodd and Tacha for Eviction.
Finally, Diane nominated Omashola and Mike while Cindy nominated Diane and Ike for Eviction.
At the end of nominations, Khafi, Mike, Tacha and Omashola were put up for possible eviction. However, Omashola used his veto power to replace himself with Seyi.
Meanwhile, NAN reports that Cindy, who is a writer and radio presenter clinched the coveted Head of House (HoH) title on Monday, after winning the challenge.
The challenge required the housemates to throw plastic balls into hoops created by Big Brother. Each housemate had his/her hoop.
However, the twist to the game was that the housemate with the lowest amount of balls hanging on would either win or move to the next round.
Frodd, Diane, Cindy, and Mercy advanced to the next round, after succeeding in the first round.
For the next round, housemates were instructed to fill a test tube to the brim using a teaspoon with one hand.
Big Brother instructed each housemate to indicate when they are done filling the test tubes.
After two minutes, Cindy won, and she automatically became head of the house.
As perks for winning, she received 250 bet9ja coins, immunity for the week, and exclusive access to the ‘Head Of House’ room.
When asked to pick one of the housemates to enjoy the ‘Head Of House’ room, Cindy surprisingly picked Mike. It was gathered that housemates up for eviction will know their fates on Sunday.

Nigerian Female Celebrities Are Not Prostitutes -Movie Producer
Nigerian movie producer, Samuel Olatunji, popularly known as Bigsam has debunked the idea that successful women in the entertainment industry earn their money through questionable means.
The Public Relations expert took to his Instagram page yesterday to condemn Nollywood actress, Nnaji Charity, who in her Instagram stories wrote that “being a female celebrity in Nigeria is more like an advanced prostitution.”(sic)
“To say her post is uncharitable to women is stating the obvious. What is more uncharitable is the fact that she is a woman (that, I believe because these days, you never can tell), “ the producer said.
He added, “What you are implying is that all these successful female celebrities, both in entertainment and outside entertainment are prostitutes, got to where they are, or are maintaining what they are by prostitution? Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Naming celebrities such as Linda Ikeji, Toyin Abraham, Funke Akindele-Bello, and Ini Edo, the Dear Affy producer attested to lucrative means by which several female celebrities he has worked with, make their money.
He said, “There was a time someone called me to say Linda Ikeji must be doing fraud or advanced prostitution to make the kind of money she has, that year, Linda was charging 50k per post (now it is 150k). I asked the person to open the blog and we did counting of sponsored post for that day as at 6pm, Linda has done about 20 sponsored posts. That year, Linda was raking in about 2 million daily. Before Covid and after, Toyin Abraham was making over 5 million monthly.
“About 10 years ago, we struck a major deal for Ini Edo, my first cut in the money was over 1.5m. Till date, Ini is making legitimate money quietly and in quick succession to have warranted talk that she’s the richest actress in Nigeria. About two or three years ago, Funke Akindele Bello made over 1 million USD from just one of her projects.”(sic)
Also mentioning the likes of Kemi Adetiba, Uche Jumbo, and Lizzy Jay, Bigsam said, “If you see all these women living life and living well, don’t let your limited brain deceive you that they only make it by gracing beds of powerful men (some of these men actually live off them).”
“Women are doing well and it is possible for the upcoming one to do better without turning to prostitution,” he continued.
He further encouraged ladies to ignore the claims by Nnaji as “she doesn’t know what she’s saying.”
