In the ever-changing Biggieverse, nominations are never easy, and yesterday was no exception.
Immediately after the nomination process,brand-new HoH Sholzy made his first address. He expressed his determination to make the most of this opportunity, emphasising the importance of the weekly wager task. Sholzy called on his fellow housemates to work together and achieve success in the task, underscoring his commitment to teamwork and mutual respect. It's clear that Sholzy is ready to take charge and lead by example during his reign, but will the All Stars cooperate with him?
Tears and betrayal
Nominated housemate Venita dealt with her nomination in a composed way. In her conversation with Soma, she said, "I am not upset. If for any reason I leave on Sunday, I am happy I maintained being me." Pere was also present, and he assured her that she wasn't going anywhere.
Doyin on the other hand, shed a few tears as she questioned Angel's loyalty. Whitemoney, in his own way, advised her to try to stay away from anything related to nominations. Doyin vowed not to make friends again as she reflected on how much she had done for Ilebaye and Angel, whom she felt didn't return the energy.
Kim Oprah expressed disappointment at not being selected as BFF. She let Sholzy know that she was unhappy. Sholzy defended his decision, saying he didn't pick her because of Cross, to which Kim Oprah responded that they came to the house separately. To let peace reign, Sholzy apologised to Kim Oprah.
Ilebaye vs. Cross vs. Ceec
Ilebaye and Cross had an honest conversation where she shared her unapologetic approach to life and her pursuit of personal desires with Cross. She asserted that she always gets what she wants and is content with her choices. Cross acknowledged her determination, highlighting that she's not as naive as she might appear.
Similarly, Ilebaye also had a chat with Ceec about their interactions in the house. Ceec felt that Ilebaye often triggered situations, while Ilebaye believed that Ceec's facial expressions made her appear constantly angry. Ceec also let Ilebaye know that the reason she was nominated was because she was looking for trouble in the past week. Ilebaye responded, saying that the housemates jump to conclusions without hearing her own side. She concluded by maintaining that she doesn't purposely look for trouble.
As the week unfolds, the BBNaija All Stars house continues to be a hotbed of emotions, strategies, and evolving relationships. With this week's nominations out of the way and a new HoH at the helm of affairs, it's certain that more twists and turns await, and we are here, ready for the drama that is sure to happen.
