The just-concluded third season of the reality TV show, Big Brother Naija “Double Wahala”, may have made billion from viewers.

The host of the show, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, revealed that over 170 million votes were cast in the course of the season, 30 million of it coming in the final week.

Although commentators on social medials are suggesting the show may have raked in as much as N5.1billion, that claim could not be independently verified by this medium.

The calculation being made is that going by the 170million people who voted during the show and paid N30 per SMS, the revenue from the show would be N5.1billion.

But organisers say that computation is faulty as a lot of the votes were cast online, and it was free. They also explained that telcoms through which the votings were done held back substantial part of the SMS fee.

Based on how the BBNaija game works, viewers were asked to cast votes for their favourite housemates to keep them in the house as the housemate with the highest votes would win.

The cost of voting was N30.

The winner took home a N45 million package containing N25 million in cash, a new SUV worth N12 million, a complete home entertainment system worth N3.3 million and an all-expense paid trip for two worth N4.7 million.

This numbers show that the organisers of the show may have made a huge profit from proceeds of the show.

NBA Youngboy Released From Jail, To Remain On House Arrest For 14 Months

Published

on

It looks as if NBA Youngboy is enjoying his freedom this Thursday morning. Back in May, Youngboy, real name Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was taken into custody after a social media video surfaced showing him allegedly making violent threats. The 19-year-old was on probation for a 2016 shooting—a case where he pleaded guilty. By taking that plea,  Gaulden was able to avoid jail time as he was given a 10-year suspended sentence,  however, he was placed on probation for three years.

Gaulden was instructed to keep himself out of trouble, but in February of this year, the rapper was arrested in Atlanta.  According to reports, Gaulden was at a hotel when a woman he was with assaulted a housekeeper. During that time, a video circulated on social media that reportedly showed the rapper threatening someone, also a violation of his probation.

In June, Gaulden was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail, but after being credited with time served, he had roughly a remaining two months. The day of his release has come as he was captured making his way out of the facility before he jumped on Instagram Live where his adoring fans were excited to see his face. Gaulden will now be placed on house arrest for 14 months where he will wear a GPS ankle monitor. During this time he also isn’t allowed to perform.

6ix9ine’s Ex-Manager Shotti’s “Right Hand Man” Sentenced To 62 Months In Prison

Published

on

Another defendant in Tekashi 6ix9ine’s federal racketeering and gun case was sentenced to prison time earlier today. According to Complex, Faheem “Crippy” Walter was sentenced to 62 months in prison. He pled guilty this past spring to two counts for his involvement in an armed robbery that took place on April 2018. The robbery itself was filmed, allegedly by 6ix9ine, with items taken during the incident discovered at the rapper’s home. Walter’s co-defendant, Jesnel Butler, was hit with a 5-year sentence just last month. Walter admitted to his involvement in the Manhattan robbery as well as brandishing a weapon but court documents made it clear that the gun wasn’t used at all during the robbery. The government insisted that he grabbed it from 6ix9ine who received it from Shotti. The Assistant United States Attorney Michael Longyear described Walter as a “right-hand man” to Shotti, although it was also revealed that he wasn’t a member of the Nine Trey gang. After his sentence, Walter took the opportunity to apologize to the court, his family and the victims. “I acted against my better judgment and I know I was wrong,” he said. “I’ll never do anything to hurt anyone again.” On top of his involvement in the robbery, the government also said that he was present during the shooting at Barclay’s Center as well as the Phillipe Chow altercation that resulted in Walter getting shot.
