It was Day 8 of the Big Brother Naija “Pepper Dem” Reunion and last night on the show, Ebuka hosted some of the housemates who left the ‘original show’ quite early.
On this episode, the housemates discussed where they played the game wrong and some of the mistakes that caused them to be evicted sooner than they would have wanted. Ebuka began with Nelson, asking him if he believed his early eviction was fair. Nelson responded yes; admitting that he failed to give the same energy most of the other housemates gave. He claimed to have been ill for most of his duration in the house and as such could not vibe with everyone and entertain the audience the way a housemate should.
A video of a poll taken by the ex-housemates came up and when asked whose eviction was most shocking to them, most of them responded Avala and Kim Oprah.
Kim admitted that she was shocked and angry, not knowing what she had done wrong and why the fans opted to evict her so soon. Ebuka brought up the issue of Kim always hanging out with the guys and hardly with the ladies; leaving the claws to come out.
She said she didn’t see it as much of an issue. According to her, she doesn’t enjoy gossiping and backstabbing from ladies, hence she is more comfortable with males and loves to hang out with men more than women.
Avala immediately countered her, telling Ebuka that she didn’t like how Kim was in the house, adding that she had a perception that Kim always felt like she was better than the other girls.
Isilomo agreed, stating that you can be a ‘Guy’s girl’ and not be distant with the ladies, but Kim managed to rub off on all the ladies the wrong way; “She just really pissed me off,” Isilomo said.
Kim was surprised that Isilomo felt that way about her as she thought Isilomo was cool with her, but on hearing what she had to say about her, she couldn’t care less about her now.
Tension definitely rose with the ladies and Kim; one that has extended even outside the house and unlike the previous two episodes, the hostilities were not resolved.
For Chinedu Okafor, its all about making an impact with words, creating a profound impression on the audience with the intended narrative.
