Big Brother Naija is also known as Big Brother Nigeria, it is a Nigerian reality competition series in which 21 contestants are selected from different states in Nigeria to live in an isolated house for one month and also compete for a large amount of cash prize, an SUV car and other exciting prizes which is worth 60million Naira.
This reality show started its episode on 5th March 2006 and since has been one of the best Nigerian Entertainment TV show. It was nominated as the Nigerian Entertainment Award for Best Lead Role in TV. Presently, Big Brother Naija is in its 5th season which premiered on 19th July 2020 on DStv Channel 198 and GOtv Channel 29. It was a huge surprise to see Ex-housemate Ebuka Obi-Uchendu from season one to return as the lead host in BBNAIJA 2020 LOCKDOWN.
Furthermore, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the season 5 of the BBnaija is themed “Big Brother Naija 2020 Lockdown” in agreement with the new situation and which increased the tensions of its fans, keeping them active and excited in their various locations and activities.
On the 2nd of August 2020, at 7:00 pm, two housemates were evicted from the house. The show host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced the four housemates who polled the least votes, which are: Lilo, Eric, Praise, and Ka3na. After this announcement, Big Brother instructed the qualified housemates to select two persons whom they would love to evict from the show. It wasn’t an easy task for them, though, but they had no choice.
After the housemates went into the diary room which they each disclosed the names of the two housemates of their choice, Ka3na was the first to be evicted from the house, followed by Lilo. It was a big shock to see Ka3na and Lilo leave. This made fans to lament bitterly on social media stating that they never expected Ka3na and Lilo to be evicted so soon, some still wondered if it was because of the affair Lilo had with Eric and the intimacy Ka3na had with Praise the night before.
Nevertheless, many still accepted that Lilo deserved her eviction. She was popularly known as “the lovebird”, “lover girl”, “BBnaija housewife” etc. although she was 4th in the lowest vote and the housemates didn’t feel happy either.
Conclusively, Ka3na made it clear before leaving that she is privileged to have come into the Big Brother Naija TV show and will move on with life as she will promote her brand to a higher level she also said she misses her daughter so much and is happy to see her again. While Lilo with sadness thanked her fans for the support and also explained how she will still rise and walk to greatness.
