Day 25: A House Divided

22 February 2018
Biggie’s new pairing has revealed some serious cracks in the House.

A Case of Poor Leadership

When Miracle won the Head of House title, his appointment was welcomed by all, a sign of the esteem that Housemates held him into. With the title came the privilege to choose who he wanted his partner to be, and of all the girls – including his squeeze Nina – he chose Anto to be his right arm for he said he admired her intelligence. Though much was expected from Mito's (Miracle and Anto) new alliance of beauty and brains, halfway through their rule, their leadership is proving quite underwhelming. They are simply not gelling together: Anto was often left to care for their baby dolls alone, as Miracle had returned to his old ways of hovering around Nina and coming to her help instead. So when the time came for him to track their missing baby, Anto paid him back by ignoring him and stayed warmly under the bed cover.

The Domino Effect

As for Nina, who had effectively turned into Miracle’s shadow, her pairing with Teddy A (Tena) is also proving challenging. So far Nina has never been the most talkative or expressive person. Some attribute her shyness to her young age, others to her lack of astuteness. In a way, Teddy A seemed to regard her a negligible asset, and acted accordingly, as he was also drawn back to Bambam, tending to her needs and helping her. After all, couples that bathe and sleep together stay together. Bambam didn’t look the least concerned with the all-consuming parenting task, instead she left Rico Swavey in charge most of the time, and ran to Teddy A. Although Bamco (Rico Swavey and Bambam) chat and laugh together yet they don’t glue. Tobi and Alex presented the same pattern of sporadically hanging out together though when it came to the babies. Yet it is Leo who rushed to Alex’s rescue, way before even thinking of Ifu Ennada whom he was paired with.

As for Lolu, he tried to be accommodating to the volcanic Cee-C (Ceelo), but somehow Tobi always reappears like a magnet which has at least the benefit of freeing him from co-parenting with Cee-C.If there was a parenting prize, it seems that Angel and Ahneeka (Gelah) would likely win it, mainly because Angel is determined to impress Ahneeka.

What will it take for the bonding to strengthen in the House?
