Dorathy hails from Delta and trended heavily on the 19th due to her shape. The damsel that is well endowed with massive boobs became one of the fans favorite. As people swore to keep her in the house for the view she carries. Ya! In big brother Naija, anything could turn out to be your lucky star.
This Ijaw beauty was showered with compliments for her beauty and trended notably. The endowed former contestant of MBGN (Top 5) has an amazing figure. In fact, she grew from 12.6 thousand followers on Instagram, to over 100 thousand followers within just 24 hours. Wow!
Laycon is a rapper and singer that hails from Lagos state. He claims he is a sex enthusiast, which according to him means, he loves having intelligent conversations on sex. Unlike the others, Laycon was heavily trolled on twitter for his outfit that had lights, as well as his appearance. He was branded with all sorts of vile names. Some called him a thief, a drug abuser, a poor twat that doesn’t belong, and he was predicted to be the first to get evicted.
Nevertheless, the trolls forgot that Bad Publicity does not exist. Thanks to him getting trolled, he has amassed a great fan base and even celebrities have come out to root for him. His rap song also got 100 thousand streams on audiomack within 24 hours. Their hate made him stronger!
Trust me when I say these three names are potential finalists. You are free to save this post.
Head of House.
The head of the house game was a game of luck and not wit. Nengi and Neo tied on several occasions, but Nengi emerged as the winner, and appointed Wathoni (Who is partly Kenya) as her deputy. They will both have exclusive access to the HOH lounge.
The house is lively though fights and drama are yet to unfold. Let’s keep our fingers crossed as I promise to be your plug for interesting BBN updates. Relax and let me take care of you. Bye for now!
