Big Brother Naija Lockdown entered the tenth week on Sunday, September 20.
In the tenth week, the last five housemates emerged with Ozo and TrikyTee bowing out of the show.
Nengi was the first to secure her seat in the finale after which she was joined by Vee and Neo for evading nomination and eventual nominations. Laycon, and Dorathy joined the trio to make the last five housemates in the BBNaija Lockdown house.
Following the eviction of TrikyTee and Ozo from the show, just a week after Kiddwaya’s eviction, the number of evicted housemates has totaled 14 with one housemate, Erica, disqualified from the show.
Other evicted housemates are Prince Lucy, Wathoni, TolaniBaj, BrightO, Praise, Kaisha, Tochi, Eric, Ka3na, and Lilo.
Here is a quick recap of the tenth week of the reality TV show that kicked off on Sunday, July 19.
Vee, Laycon emerge Head of House for 24 hours
On Monday, September 21 – day 65 in the BBNaija Lockdown house – Vee emerged the Head of House. Vee’s emergence is coming much after the task by Big Brother for the last five housemates. Unlike other Heads of House, Vee, who became the Head of House for the first time would only have her reign last for 24 hours. After 65 days in the BBNaija Lockdown house, Laycon emerged the Head of House on the 66th day. Laycon was unanimously appointed as the HoH by the four other housemates of the Lockdown edition. Laycon finally got the one position that had eluded him for weeks in the House, the position of the Head of House. The 25-year-old had only been able to secure the position of Deputy HoH to Trikytee in the eighth week.
Laycon, Dorathy, Vee, Nengi, Neo win N5m
BBNaija Lockdown’s last five housemates, Vee, Neo, Nengi, Dorathy, and Laycon won a total of N5 million. Each of the housemates won the sum of N1 million each after a brilliant performance in the Lipton peace task. The housemates participated in the Lipton task on day 66 which amplified peace and allowed them to apply their minds to pen a message to move the nation. The housemates also presented their peace messages looking lovely in the arena. After taking a few hours to pen their different peace messages, the last five housemates were welcomed by a glamorous set up in the arena. They sat in a stately manner arrangement to listen to each other. After their performances, Biggie called the housemates into the lounge and announced that he was happy with their performances in the arena. He announced to the elated housemates that they were all to become influencers for Lipton Ice Tea after walking away with N1,000,000 each.
Nengi weeps as Ozo gets evicted
Nengi couldn’t control her tears following Ozo’s eviction on Sunday, September 20. Though Nengi avoided a kiss from Ozo as he was evicted, she broke down and wept uncontrollably throughout the night. It took the intervention of other housemates to get Nengi back to form. Nengi has since noted that though she wants to win, it’s obvious that she misses Ozo’s presence in the house. Nengi has managed to live with the other four housemates in the tenth and final week of the show.
In their 10th week in the BBNaija Lockdown house, the platonic relationships seem to be ruling the house after all the pairs have been evicted. The fondness among the housemates has reduced and every move is precipitated by a motive. As it was in the ninth week, the strongest of the Ships – Neo and Vee – has become platonic. The pair have mended fences but remained platonic friends. Though this is not going down with Neo, he has accepted his fate.
Dorathy and Nengi discuss Ozo
Dorathy and Nengi took the time to relax in the garden and have a drink while they discussed Ozo as well as Nengi and Dorathy’s relationship. Nengi told Dorathy that she was taken aback when she distanced herself as she had actively tried to foster a relationship with her. Dorathy said she distanced herself from Nengi because she did not want to be in the middle of Ozo and Nengi. She did not want to have a situation where Nengi and Ozo argued, and it would be attributed to her. The ladies went on to bring to light all their issues and understand each other all over again.
