Tomorrow will mark an end to what has been a phenomenal season of Big Brother Naija and what better way to wrap it up than with some of the hottest names in the Nigerian entertainment industry. The organisers of the show, MultiChoice Nigeria, have just announced that Rema and Fireboy will be performing at the finale of the fifth edition of BBNaija.
Rema is currently the toast of both local and international press. The 20-year-old has been getting major props from across the world with two of his songs even making it into President Barack Obama’s highly anticipated Summer Playlist. Fireboy has also been blazing the trail since his breakout single, ‘Jealous’ dropped in 2019.
The two stars will be joined by popular illusionist, Babs Cadini, who will be performing some of his famous tricks on the finale stage, as well as dance group, Imagneto Dance Company.
Viewers can expect to be treated to these dazzling performances during the live show on DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29 where the winner of Big Brother Naija Lockdown edition will be unveiled.
Recall that the last eviction night was fraught with tension as everyone was curious as to who would join Nengi, Neo and Vee to make the final five. At the end of the night, Trikytee and Ozo were evicted, missing the opportunity to be among the top five.
The week started with Nengi being crowned HoH for the second time in the Lockdown season. To kick off the nominations, the remaining housemates were divided into two teams: black and white and in a unique twist each team had to nominate two people from the opposing team. At the end of the deliberation Laycon, Dorathy, Trikytee and Ozo were put up for eviction.
Trikytee’s lucky streak came to an end, as he was the first housemate to be evicted tonight. It’s interesting to note that Trikytee has been up for eviction practically every week since the third week but has always been saved. Until now!
Speaking to Ebuka following his eviction, Trikytee said he enjoyed his stay in the house and didn’t understand how he managed to escape evictions in the previous weeks. He said he felt the housemates liked him because he was free-spirited and easy going. He also didn’t think he was particularly attracted to only the people in power as perceived because he got along with everyone in the house. Trikytee says now that he is out, the name of the game is “Hustle 101,” as he plans to push himself and his brand to the forefront.
The next housemate to leave was Ozo, who expressed his strong feelings for Nengi and said he fell for her from week three. He said he didn’t back down from Nengi even though she turned down his advances, because he sees all the great qualities she has. And he has found someone he would like to sacrifice things for. Ozo said he will now focus on sports development and he thanked his family and everyone who helped him come this far in the show.
The final five housemates of the BBNaija Lockdown season are Laycon, Nengi, Vee, Dorathy and Neo. Ebuka congratulated them and urged them to be patient in the last days that they have to be in the house. He also reminded them to stay entertaining, as this is an entertainment show after all.
