The lockdown house got a bit intense yesterday morning following major arguments all revolving around chores and Big Brother’s food.
Housemates, Ka3na and Tolanibaj had a brutal face-off which interestingly, comes as a surprise as Tolanibaj in the past week, appeared calm and non-confrontational.
This week is a clear contrast as the housemate may have retrieved her mojo after Sunday night’s eviction announcement.
Following the drama-filled morning, Big Brother treated the housemates to a yoga session, clearly to help the housemates with the chill pill some desperately needed. Hopefully, the long minutes of meditation might help with the tension.
Away from the eviction notice, the latest drama also comes as no surprise. After the new HOH’s Monday night address, it became apparent that the week would spell all hands on deck’ in caps for all housemates especially those who fancied lazying around while others cleaned and cooked.
Recall Lucy won the week’s head of house challenge, beating Neo and Ozo to the highest dice number.
Holidays are over for the BBNaija Lockdown housemates as the Sunday night eviction show heralds the beginning of nominations.
For the first Sunday night eviction, show host, Ebuka caught up with the housemates on highlights from the previous week. Nengi and Wathoni shared their HOH and deputy experience and challenges.
In the wake of their experiences, Ebuka grilled housemates who had axes to grind. For the Wathoni and Ka3na saga, the former revealed she felt defeated by Ka3na’s reaction during the week.
For Lucy and Kaisha, both agreed that they had both resolved their issues although Kaisha blamed Lucy’s overreaction on attempting to trend.
Amid the recap and housemates reactions, Ebuka unveiled two major twists to this season of the reality show.
Kicking off from Monday, all housemates will be up for possible eviction excluding the week’s Head of House and deputy. Another interesting twist is that housemates will be mandated by Big Brother to vote out housemates with the least votes during their diary sessions and the losing housemate(s) will be evicted live on Sunday.
Why Women In Nollywood Have More Money Than Men – Linda Osifo
Ebony Nigerian actress, Linda Osifo has opened up on why women in the movie industry are more successful than their male counterparts.
When asked why women do better, have more cars than the men in the industry, Osifo, speaking during an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbing Minds, said there are so many more avenues for women to make money than men.
According to her, actresses have ambassadorial deals from wig brands, skin care, clothing brands, which is why some of them have more money than men and are able to acquire houses.
“As a woman compared to a man I have more options to get more jobs than a man.
“I can advertise hair, wigs, shoes and a wide range of clothes from brands which most men cannot. The ratio of men to women is 1:3 which makes the market wider for us.
“I’ve become a brand ambassador to skincare brands and that’s an industry that men don’t dominate and conquer so this is how women are more successful.
“Women have more opportunities to make money.”
The 29-year-old actress said the mentality of the society that a woman can’t make it on her own is the reason for the rumours that most actresses have illicit affairs.
“I’ve come to understand that society has the mindset that most women can’t succeed on their own. It’s a big problem because there are many women who are doing so much for themselves,” she added.
She noted that social media plays an important role in an actor’s career because we are in a digital world but talent sustains your success.
“The more people on social media platforms, the more you can market to them, but at the end of the day talent sustains success,” she said.
The Voice Nigeria 3: How Darey Pushed Esther To Victory
The Voice Nigeria Season three came to a crescendo last Saturday night when 23-year-old Esther Benyeogo emerged as the winner of the music reality TV show.
With Esther’s victory at the keenly contested competition, Darey Art Alade has engraved his name on the list of the Voice Nigeria coaches whose talent emerged winners.
The journey to victory for Esther began with a blind audition that had a total of 32 talents performing to get the attention of any coach in order to get a turnaround.
In the third week of the show, Esther made her first appearance at the blind auditions. Her rendition of Andra Day’s ‘Rise Up’ erupted the first teary emotion on the show as coaches Darey, Waje and Falz turned to canvass for her acceptance into their teams. After her rendition of the song, Waje couldn’t hold back her tears as she got emotional and cried while heaping accolades and commendations on the graduate of the University of Benin.
Settling into Team Darey with Rachel, Ayomikun, Jeremiah, Blescene, and Dapo, Esther made no mistake of saving her powerful voice for the last round, she displayed her dexterity and brilliance from the knockouts where she was sent straight to the battles after her rendition of Westlife’s ‘Flying Without Wings.’
The Delta indigene didn’t settle for less as she conquered Jeremiah on the battlefield to qualify for the live show.
Her final performance at the grand finale elicited cheers and claps from the studio audience.
Though not new to winning singing competitions, Esther says, winning The Voice Nigeria 3 is special because she’s recognised for her singing abilities.
“I am grateful to The Voice Nigeria and my fans out there for this amazing experience. It has been my utmost joy to come on your screens every week and share my gift on such a huge platform. This win is even more special for me because it is one thing to know you have a gift, but it means everything to be recognised for that gift. I must however give thanks to God without whom I would not be here today and also appreciate my family and friends for their love, support, and prayers,” she stated.
With every of her step, Darey couldn’t help but shower accolades on Esther, who had won God’s Children Great Talent Season 7 contest in 2017 at age 19, after she emerged first runner-up in the Next Big Teen talent in 2012.
“Of course, I am thankful to my Coach, Coach Darey, for making my time here truly rewarding, and for equipping me with the skills to give this my best shot,” she said of her coach.
I Hope Nobody Else Dies Before PSquare Reconcile – Ayo Animashaun
Media entrepreneur, Ayo Animashaun, has urged former PSquare duo, Peter and Paul Okoye, to settle their differences and not wait until they lose another person.
The executive producer shared a photo of members of the defunct Plantashun Boyz, 2face Idibia, Blackface and Faze after they had made peace at the ‘Night of Tribute’ in honour of late Sound Sultan in Terra Kulture, Lagos State on Sunday, July 25, 2021.
The singers were at some point called upstage and urged to reconcile as a way to honour the late singer, who was their bosom friend and colleague.
They agreed, embraced peace and even performed their classic songs together on stage.
Holding photo of the Plantashun Boiz which he described as his ‘picture of the month’, Animashaun called on the Okoye twin brothers to follow suit while hoping they do not lose any life before they eventually do the needful.
He wrote: “My picture of the month….I hope we don’t lose another life before @iamkingrudy and @peterpsquare realise it’s their turn to bury the hatchet. @therealblackfacenaija @fazealone @official2baba.”
