This week started with Nengi being crowned HoH for the second time in the Lockdown season. To kick off the nominations, the remaining housemates were divided into two teams: black and white and in a unique twist each team had to nominate two people from the opposing team. At the end of the deliberation Laycon, Dorathy, Trikytee and Ozo were put up for eviction.

Trikytee’s lucky streak came to an end as he was the first housemate to be evicted tonight. It’s interesting to note that Trikytee has been up for eviction practically every week since the third week but has always been saved. Until now!

Speaking to Ebuka following his eviction, Trikytee said he enjoyed his stay in the house and didn’t understand how he managed to escape evictions in the previous weeks. He said he felt the housemates liked him because he was free-spirited and easy going. He also didn’t think he was particularly attracted to only the people in power as perceived because he got along with everyone in the house. Trikytee says now that he is out, the name of the game is “Hustle 101” as he plans to push himself and his brand to the forefront.

MultiChoice Celebrates African Stories And More From Africa’s Most Loved Storyteller


Africa’s most loved storyteller Multichoice is committed to continuing the journey of storytelling for years to come. At the heart of this commitment is the desire to tell stories that resonate with Africans throughout the continent, stories that echo shared sentiments of triumph, success and growth, stories that share ideals, beliefs, embrace change and encourage diversity. It is through these stories that we can come together as one.

This promise to showcase the best of African storytelling is perfectly captured in the “10 000 Stories” promo which was launched as part of the recent Multichoice Media Showcase.

 

This creative masterpiece was the brainchild of poet and writer Lebohang Mashango. It explores themes around diversity, innovation, local content, international content, sports and a general love for stories. Brought to life by Mashango and other talented African poets, it is an ode to all who have been part of the journey, celebrating the legacy of the MultiChoice and the more than 10 000 stories which have been told over the years.

 

‘I drew inspiration from Maya Angelo and the grand idea explored in most African philosophy. The idea that one individual is amplified when standing as a collective I come as one but, I stand as 10 000’, the core of the poem is around collectivism and collaboration, something storytelling does so well.

Big Brother Naija Lockdown: Laycon, Trikytee, Ozo And Dorathy To Fight For A Place In The Top Five


Biggie always has a surprise in store for the housemates and viewers and he reveals them as he deems fit. In yet another twist this season, Biggie gave the housemates a lot to think about during the surprising nomination process this Monday as the fight comes down to the top five.  

After Nengi was declared the ninth Head of House (HoH) of the season, she secured her place in the grand finale. However, she did not get to pick a Deputy Head of House (DHoH) to save from possible eviction.  

To kick off the nominations, Biggie gave Nengi the duty to remove a veil to reveal the mystery underneath, which turned out to be six bowls placed upside down on a table concealing an item.

The housemates were then asked to pick one bowl each and stand behind it. They were not permitted to choose the same bowl as another housemate. After this was done, they were given three seconds to turn over their bowls and find either white or black headbands. Neo, Dorathy and Ozo ended up with black headbands, automatically putting them in team ‘Black’, while Trikytee, Vee and Laycon all got white headbands, making them team ‘White’.
