Esther Gets Ready for Second Term and Team Cruisetopia Face Eviction on #BBNaija Day 40

Published

on

Hugs And DisciplineAfter every Eviction in the Big Brother Naija House, the Housemates display various reactions and yesterday was not an exemption.The Pepper Dem Gang did not expect that Joe and Enkay will be Evicted and some of them who were lucky to escape Eviction seized the moment to clear things out among themselves. One of such Housemate was Venita.A Warm HugEven though she appeared a bit calm during Ebuka’s chat with the Housemates at the Live Eviction Show, Venita was not actually happy that Khafi told others about their little misunderstanding.Remember that there had been no love lost between the two and though they had a one on one chat some days back to iron things out, it is clear that Venita has not buried the hatchet yet. This was evident in her conversation with Gedoni where she vented her anger to him. Confused and short of words, Gedoni’s solution was to offer Venita a hug. Fortunately for him, this calmed her down a bit, but Venita was not done yet as she said, “If I decided to set my compass on you, she will not stand a chance.” With this statement, can we say that the palava between Venita and Khafi isn’t over yet?A Gist in the GardenAt the garden, Omashola and Gedoni had a hearty chat about how much has changed about them since their arrival in Biggie’s House. On his part, Omashola said that if anybody had told him he could do without his phone for a moment, he wouldn’t have believed it. In his words, “I no fit browse, I no even touch anything and I dey okay.” Well, what can we say? When you are in Big Brother’s House, you abide by Biggie’s rules.What is a Sunday Eviction show without the dramatic moments that follow it? As we count down to another Eviction Show, we expect the Housemates to keep Peppering us in every way that they can.A New Fitness GoalIt’s a new day after the Eviction and the Housemates were not prepared for what hit them.The Big Brother Naija Housemates had a new twist this morning in the form of a new fitness trainer. Here’s all that happened afterward.New Drill SergeantAs usual, the Housemates have their morning workout session all by themselves and they thought today will be no different. Well, Biggie had a new twist for them – a new fitness instructor. As soon as the Pepper Dem Gang walked into the Arena, they came face to face with a trainer who showed them beneath the smiles was a tough demeanor they had to get used to. Apparently, the Housemates had been too relaxed in their morning workout and coupled with the way they consume food in the House, they had to burn those piling calories. One thing we observed from this morning drill was the expressions on their faces as they went through the routine and yes, they were quite funny😆.After the workout, Elozonam, Omashola, and Frodd had a chat in the garden about what they thought about Biggie’s workout goals for them. In his carefree manner, Omashola said, “I sweat for the first time inside the gym and if this trainer continues for one week straight, everybody go dey fit.” Somehow, we think this is what Biggie has in mind and we shall see how they cope under the grueling workout schedule the trainer has in store for them.Love Life GistThis morning wasn’t all about fitness as Seyi, Sir Dee, Khafi, Gedoni and Omashola had a chat about their love life outside the Big Brother Naija House. From airing their thoughts on PDA to having long term relationships, these members of the Pepper Dem Gang sure missed their sweethearts💕. In sharing their experiences with their girlfriends, Seyi said: “I no fit dey this House if not for my babe”. Sir Dee also talked about giving up to date information to one’s partner. In his words, “what people term reporting, I have become accustomed to it and it’s important especially when you are in a long-distance relationship.” Well, the love experts in the House have spoken and we hope you got all you need to make your relationship wax stronger and sweeter😉.Watch The Conversation Here[embedded content]Esther Wins Head Of HouseEsther has become the first female in the Big Brother Naija to sit on the Head of House throne twice.For displaying her prowess in vocabulary, strategy, and speed, Esther has emerged the Head of House for this week. This is the second time that this Pepper Dem Housemate will occupy the position.Spelling BeeThis week, the Head of House challenge was to test the Housemates’ vocabulary strength. In five minutes, the Housemates were required to spell as many words as possible and the Housemate with the most correctly spelt words will become the Head of House. As easy as this sounds, they were strict instructions for them to follow.They were only allowed to pick a single tile on each trip and if anyone was caught cheating, the Housemate was disqualified. Venita, Diane, Mike and Tacha fell victim to this rule and they were disqualified by Biggie. Mercy also got her last word invalidated as she spelt it after the buzzer went off. In addition to Biggie’s rules, the Housemates were to avoid spelling proper nouns and repeating a word.Several TiesThe game entered a second round as Seyi, Khafi, Frodd, Elozonam, Ike and Esther all spelt seven words correctly. The game became tougher as Biggie asked the Housemates to spell the longest word they could think of in three minutes. Though they tried their best, the challenge proceeded to the third round with Elozonam and Esther competing against each other. However, Esther won this round to become the Head of House as her word ‘Denominational’ was longer and correctly spelt.A Shared WinAs Head of House, Esther has won the Immunity privilege for this week, 250 Bet9ja Coins and the Head of House Bedroom privilege. Her team, Cruisetopia also got a reward of 20 Bet9ja bonus Coins. When asked who she will share the Head of House bedroom with, Esther picked Frodd as her roommate. This win is sure an early birthday present for Esther as her birthday comes up on Thursday. Congratulations Esther!The Pepper Dem Gang have had a taste of Esther’s rule, will her second term be any different?Team Cruisetopia Face EvictionThe Housemates up for possible Eviction this week are Diane, Frodd, Jackye, Gedoni, Mercy, Mike and Seyi.For five minutes, The Icons and team Cruisetopia were Tasked to a Challenge which involved each and every team member’s participation. Yes, even with her Immunity privilege, the Head of House – Esther, was involved.The MissionWith two marked rectangular boxes for each team, each rectangular box had a large bucket of coloured water and ten small silver cups. The teams were required to fill as much of the silver cups as possible in the frame of five minutes. Oh, sounds easy? The Challenge involved the Housemates climbing Biggie’s ‘obstacles’. Yes, Biggie had some deliberate ‘steps’ obstacle on the course. The game just got tighter.Using their carefully thought out strategies, each team had to fill the silver cups one at a time. Following Biggie’s rules, each cup had to be filled to the brim before the team could proceed to the next cup – all to be done within the marked box.Trust Biggie’s Ninjas to come through with Task aids for the Pepper Dem Gang. For this Challenge, teaspoons were provided for the purpose of transporting the water.The Winning CupAs the team with the fuller cup, The Icons won tonight’s Nomination Challenge.For this reason, the Cruisetopia team are automatically facing Eviction this week, with the exception of Esther – as the Head of House.The SaveElozonam armed with the Veto Power Holder title was given twenty seconds to Save a Nominated Housemate and Replace with another.Using this special power, Elozonam Saved Venita and replaced her with Frodd. Was his choice as a result of Diane not Saving him last week? We might never know.Having won the Nomination Challenge last week, team Cruisetopia is faced with the cold hands of Eviction this week. Will this change things in the Pepper Dem House or will they buckle up and aim for many wins this week?

Ehi Agbashi: The Hate You Decide to Give

Published

on

I was scrolling through Twitter a few days ago when I saw a video of three guys dancing at the beach. One of the main dancers was James Brown, who became popular about a year ago.Normally I continue scrolling, but this time around I decided to read through the comments. Most of them were disgusting and heartbreaking. First of all, someone went to his page just to get a video to share on Twitter, then bashed and wished ill upon him. This was not the first time I was seeing something like this, but this was the first time I put in conscious effort to read through the comments, just to try to understand why.It’s completely okay to disapprove of someone. It’s okay to disagree with their views and opinions, okay to have beliefs that you hold dear. What is not okay is you wishing someone death and misery just because they are different from what you would call the “norm.”One comment that struck me was made by a guy (whose name I can’t remember). He said if one of those guys was his brother he would have killed him. This made me realize that most Nigerians are used to having a one particular way of thinking, and anything different from that is met with hostility and, in most cases, hate.Now some people may say, “But my religion doesn’t accept this,” but why are we forgetting the parts of our religion that encourage us to love one another and leave judgement to God. A lot of people wished that these boys got washed away by the ocean, and it broke my heart to pieces. If you completely disapprove of who they are, you can block them. And guess what, you won’t see them on your timeline anymore. I promise you, that’s a better and healthier option than throwing vile words around.Then the argument around religion came up again on Sunday, and I saw another angle that proved to me how intolerant Nigerians can be toward one another.Let’s move away from this scenario that might seem extreme, and move on to things that are more relatable in our everyday lives: A woman who decides not to get married or who decides not to have children is usually looked down upon and viewed as a lesser woman, or a woman who has a child outside of marriage is made to feel like she doesn’t deserve love. When a couple is unable to have children and opt for adoption, the woman is still looked down upon. I have seen scenarios where a lady turns down a man due to his rude advances and everyone starts cracking the Shiloh 2020 jokes. I have taken the time to ask my friends why Nigerians don’t see gray areas when it comes to beliefs and values, and the loudest answer I got was that it wasn’t a Nigerian thing, it was a human thing.Yes, I agree; it’s a human thing to disagree and maybe even judge. But I don’t think we should be comfortable viewing others through our lenses of bias. We need to learn to respect people for who they are and what they believe. I have seen a lot of people who talk about wanting to be better than the generation before us, and I am here to say that those hopes and aspirations will never happen if we continue to think and act like the generation before us. In order to change and advance, we also need to change our thought process and replace the hate that is being doled out with tolerance and acceptance, because it definitely isn’t worth it.

Ruth Zubairu: Family Vacation is Not Mummy Vacation

Published

on

Yes, I said it.Especially for women with children under six.If you don’t have extra help, where you are going to? Because you just might need a vacation after your family vacation. That is if you don’t find yourself in the hospital.It’s true.Before y’all think I’m painting the picture too bleak, let me clarify: if time is not intentionally created for the mummy of the house during vacation, then she will end up doing all she does back home, and even more, for many reasons.One, it’s unfamiliar territory. Two, there’s the possibility that one child would fall sick. Or react to water. Or food. So add emergency nurse to the already jetlagged mum, and you get my picture.But what happens when a working mum decides to go on a vacation all by herself? Should she feel guilty or not?Haaaa.“You want to travel? So who will you leave the children for?”That was the question that was thrown at me when I was to travel for a training in Dubai. Even though I had made arrangements for extra help, my husband made it easy for me to make the decision.But then, as I boarded the aircraft, I felt an all too familiar sting.Guilt.I was going to be away from my boys. What if something happened to them in my absence? Will the cooked stew and soups be enough? Was it okay for me to take a mini-break? Did this mean I was a bad mother? It occurred to me that in almost seven years of marriage, I had not travelled without the children. So going through the airport without having to chase little feet around felt strange.Not hearing the always-present “Mummy this” “Mummy that” made me feel out of place. Almost like a runaway. I’m very sure I’m not the only one who has felt this way.Do you find it difficult giving yourself a well-deserved treat? Do you often go shopping for the family and return with loads of things for every other person but yourself? Do you feel that you have to keep sacrificing yourself to make others happy? Then the mummy-guilt might just be whispering things in your ears.I don’t mean we should go the extreme and neglect our responsibilities, but it is okay to look after yourself as a mom. My trip was an amazing experience. For the first two days, I didn’t bother about the sights and sounds of the city. I was just super excited by the simple fact that I could sleep and wake up focusing on just me. I could finally process my thoughts without mentally ticking my checklist for chores.Too many times, the burden of raising a young family and managing a career or business takes its toll on young mothers. It also extends to relationships with family, old and new friends, colleagues and associates.The former ways of handling stress and having fun are no longer practical. It’s either you are too busy these days that you’re no longer available to hang out as often as you did, or you may even have the time but do not have someone to watch the kids so you are literally grounded. With little humans who constantly need you. My dear sister, don’t wait too long before taking care of yourself. You can’t pour from an empty cup.Research has shown that women who are physically and mentally exhausted are prone to getting depressed and having suicidal thoughts. Before you go off the ledge and do something crazy, show yourself some love. It’s holiday for the children, but I hope you’ve planned out something nice for yourself as well. It may not be something as elaborate as a trip, but you could find little ways to de-stress. Scheduling a foot massage, going to see a movie, buying a small gift for yourself, arranging play dates with other moms so you can collectively watch all the kids and have some grown-up conversations, etc., can help to fill up your emotional tank.Trust me, the family will be better because of you. No husband wants to come home to meet a cranky wife. He will be hurrying home when he knows he’s to meet a wife who is beaming with joy and who has something interesting to say other than how the children and work have made her miserable.Here’s my verdict: In the case of fun timeouts for mothers equalling neglect; guilt or not guilty?My verdict is Not Guilty.winksLet me hear your verdict in the comments.
