Day 65: The Gift And The Curse

03 September 2019
With Veto Power comes great responsibility. Seyi bears the gift and the curse this week and he uses it.

So heavy is the weight of being the Veto Power Holder that Seyi refused to use it the first time he had contact with it. Diane said it wasn’t an easy decision for Seyi to make. Who else to better understand this than Diane who at one point had to bear the guilt of Saving Sir Dee and Replacing him with Joe who ended up getting Evicted. Let’s not forget Elozonam, who was mad at her most of the week for not Saving him.

This time around, Seyi used his Veto Power to Save himself and Replace with Khafi. Even though he said it was random, he did go with his guts in selecting her. 

Surprise Replacement

Seyi not hesitating to use his Veto Power wasn’t exactly the plot twist seeing as he got punished the last time he refused to use it. What really had the internet buzzing was him Replacing himself with Khafi. Even Tacha found it surprising that he put Khafi up even though she was aware they had a few altercations.

A few of you also found it surprising.


A few of the Housemates felt it was a case of Seyi getting back at Khafi for the Veto Power Game of Chance. One of the Housemate was Cindy. She believed Khafi adding more marbles to Seyi’s cup during the Game sent him on a mission of vendetta.

Some Housemates Were Cool with It

“His choice surprised me. I thought he’d pick Mike, but since he went along with my own Nomination, I was cool with it,” Ike said when asked about Seyi’s use of his Veto Power. He went further to say he was happy to see the choice Seyi made and agrees with it. Ike did make it seem like it was just a case of eliminating the biggest threat, but one can’t forget that just about a week ago he felt slighted that he lost the Head of House to Khafi. Could this have had anything to do with him being cool with Seyi’s decision?

Ike wasn't the only one who sided with him, turns out a few of you do too.

Doesn't Make Sense!

Elozonam couldn't make any sense of Seyi's choice. "It was probably a random choice," he said but he was really expecting him to put up other stronger Housemates.

It's Game On!

"I had this gut feeling he was going to pick me," Khafi said even though she wished she was wrong. She believed he did it because he thought she was an easy target. "Let's go... Let's do this," She chanted as she plans to take on this Challenge she faces.
