With only days left before the end of the show, Biggie completely banned any sort of campaigning for the rest of the week. It’s a decision that seemed quite harsh at first but when he asked them in today’s Diary Sessions, if they felt it jeopardised their chances, they all agreed that it didn’t phase them anymore.
Bisola said they would have been incredibly annoying to watch because all they’d be doing is campaigning, so it was probably a good call.
Marvis actually felt the ban would allow viewers to vote on merit and Debie-Rise argued that it had helped level the playing field.
Enter another twist. Biggie told everyone to put on their finest clothes and get ready to go to the Arena for their last presentantion.
They had only 40 minutes to put on their make up, suits and evening gowns before heading out and they all looked visibly nervous as they racked their brains for the perfect speech. In the end, Biggie’s call was a good one because not having time to memorise anything forced them to speak from the heart.
First up was TBoss. “I came into this House a princess and now I stand before you, a queen! I say this with humility. I am not a proud person.” She expressed her gratitude for everyone who’d “invested in her” and asked them to keep being kind and voting.
She revealed that she didn’t know why they’d saved her so many times but suggested that it was probably because they all saw every facet of her and realised that she was nothing like the first impression she often gets thanks to her “tattoos and piercings.”
Efe went up next starting with the question, “Who is Efe?” before launching into an empassioned speech where he suggested that everyone who’d overcome strife was no different from him. “Efe nah you! Efe nah that mother who deprives herself of every luxury” so her kids go to school.
“Efe nah me coz I be Nigerian and against all odds I stand with my two feet!” His eyes filled with tears for a moment as he recounted how he’d gotten farther than anyone else in his family, “The name Ejeba stands out now!” he exclaimed before pleading with people to vote.
“Bisola means ‘Born into wealth’ but that hasn’t been the case” Bisola said as she opened. She revealed that she often felt insecure and envious when people mentioned their college experiences because she never had the money to go to one.
She also explained how she made the decision to rely on the talents that she knew “could feed her” to survive depression. She acknowledged that she’d fought with many people in the House but reminded everyone that she wasn’t perfect nor was she more intelligent, gifted or beautiful than anyone else. “Yet, you’ve kept me here! Please keep up the good will.” she exclaimed as she closed off.
Marvis kept things simple reminding everyone that she’d been a fighter from the get go and had accomplished things even she thought she would never do. She begged everyone to vote for her because she was a born winner. “I’m pleading because W-I-N dey for my body!”
She thanked Big Brother for giving her this platform and reminded people that she’d kept it real all the way through. “I came here Marvis. I leave here Marvis” she said before concluding that if it weren’t for Big Brother people would have never known that name.
Debie-Rise closed things off by making the surprising revelation that she didn’t have her family’s blessing to come to the show. However, she said she stuck around because she wanted to be an example everyone that you should chase your dreams at any cost.
“Growing up I just wanted to be more. This passion that I have? I want go home and say that it was worth it in the end!” She also said she was disciplined, well mannered and empathetic which said were qualities a winner should possess.

“If I Die Following My Dreams I’ii Die Happy And Fulfilled” – Oyinbabyo
Guys!! This is not fair at all we are better than this… we love you @oyinbabyo stay strong dear!
Hi everyone, I’d like to express my feelings to make you all understand what I’ve been going through for the past two days after my video was posted @tundeednut and @instablog9ja 🏼 I’ve seen a lot of trolls on my page with hate speech, abusive language and the threat to my life because I’m a white girl doing #Afrobeats music. I need you to understand that I was actually born white I didn’t choose my colour I have a good heart and I’m following my dreams which is my entitlement as a human being. And if I die following my dreams I’ll die happy and fulfilled as I’ve achieved my fate and my destiny. No amount of hate or threats will make me change my way of life nor the love and respect I have for African culture, Nigeria🇳🇬 and Afrobeats music. So I’ll never stop and no one will stop me because I have a strong will and a good heart towards everyone regardless of their gender, religion or race. #saynotoracism
For those of you encouraging and supporting me thank you! I’m just embarking on a journey that have kept many people backward and isolated due to fear of acceptance. I keep learning everyday because no one is perfect and life itself is a learning experience. Oyin is here to stay and I believe I’ll make you all proud. Thank you 🖤 @beehiventertainment
