Day 50: Housemates champion random acts of kindness 

13 March 2017
Earlier Biggie instructed Igwe Bassey to implement the Pay It Forward task in extension of the spirit of the social awareness the House is immersed into since the One challenge. 

This time the Head of House was given a totem that represents random acts of kindness, and whoever holds it must perform a selfless, sacrificial action of humanity towards another for the rest of the week.

But first Housemates had to come together on how to name the totem. A few names were circulated, from Jasmina, Mary and Lovette and ultimately Mary won the most votes.However Housemates seemed to have a different understanding of the very meaning of kindness, with some vouching for selfless and others plain hard core sacrificial.

While they were still having a hard time agreeing on the extent of their kindness, HoH Bassey put a black crate in the middle of the room and ordered everybody to fill it with three of their most precious personal items: Bisola brought a perfume bottle as well as a piece of her mother’s wardrobe, while Debie-Rise reluctantly brought her beloved guitar among others to the kindness box. Once filled, HoH Bassey sat down aside with Bally who pleaded with him to be kind and let him remain in the House. However HoH Bassey gently cut him short immediately reminding him of Biggie’s no conspiracy rules while handing him the totem.


Left with the totem, Bally turned to Debie-Rise who challenged him to paint her toenails as an act of kindness.  Bally diligently applied himself to painting the fingernails too thereby winning his challenge.

Debie-Rise who was then handed the totem turned to Marvis who took great delight requesting that she cooks Egusi stew for the Housemates dinner.

And so whilst Debie-Rise was busy chopping and sweating behind the stove, Housemates were gleefully playing cards around the dinner table.
