It’s only natural for one to get jitters before an important upcoming event.

It came as no surprise therefore, that the Housemates felt nerves creeping up on them, as they bounced off a few ideas and drafted their presentations for their ONE AFRICA campaign this afternoon.

The Housemates were given a Task of coming up with presentations to help the ‘girl child’, which they will use to try convince Biggie, as well as the ONE AFRICA judges tomorrow. The winner will join a list of celebrities championing the plights of the girl child. They will also attend the UN General Assembly event in New York in September.

The Housemates worked around their presentations for the better part of the afternoon. Bally and Efe bounced off a few ideas while sitting at the kitchen table, while Bassey and TBoss sat on the couch, bouncing off a few ideas too.

“Is it ok to start crying now?” asked TBoss and Bassey wondered why she asked such a question. “It’s because I’m scared of the presentation,” she admitted. Bassey assured her that the other Housemates probably felt the same, seeing as there was a lot at stake for this Task.

Meanwhile, Bisola, Marvis and ThinTallTony sat in the lounge and Bisola read part of what she had already drafted to the two, taking in a few suggestions.

“You want to win this one?” ThintallTony joked with her after she had finished reading out her draft. She responded saying she wasn’t quite sure. ThinTallTony and Marvis assured her that the draft was actually quite good.

“It’s good, very good!” said ThinTallTony. Marvis agreed saying, “It makes sense,” before adding that Bisola could change a few things in her presentation format.

Moments later while gathered in the kitchen, Bassey admitted to being a little anxious about tomorrow.

“I wish we could do this presentation tonight. The suspense is too much!” he said. Marvis agreed.

In addition to the presentations, the Housemates had to also create an original musical piece with the theme “Lets Educate Our Girl child”, which they are expected to perform tomorrow alongside their individual presentations. The performance is not to exceed four minutes. Let's wait and see who wins this one tomorrow.
