Big Brother Naija


Day 37: You've Been Psyched!

06 March 2018
While this is a game, the viewer's involvement is real and more than meets the eye.

The pairing dynamics have somewhat forced us to look at the Housemates as units and we’ve pretty much been swerved from looking at their individual traits. This may be due to the fact that they all tried to play as a ‘team', however with the Eviction cycle in full swing, the Housemates were forced to bring out their weapons, some guns and a few roses.


We all enjoy a little romance, or maybe a lot and there’s a bit of comfort in knowing that it’s not all scripted. Hence the general reactions surrounding the love nests and how their sadness is invevitably translated into our own lives. The hardcore lovers find themselves drawn to other hard core loves; the broken hearted seem to gravitate towards tear worthy moments and ampathise with the ‘victims’; the players raise their hands and pay homage to other players, low key thanking them for justified representation and; those that waged war against love and lost miserabley seem to be rooting for those break ups and ruffed fearthers. Are you perhaps any of the above?

More Involve than You think

The Big Brother Naija game is not limited to the TV screens and social media posts. We are literally part and parcel of all the drama and involuntary melancholy. Infact, it wouldn’t be completely careless to assume that we’re more invested and pulled in than the very people we’re watching as we know every one of their moves and have a multi dimensional glass view of the twists and plots. Clap along when your inhouse muse beats the clock and nails a challenge, feel the butterflies when your fave finally smooches their crush and cry a pond when the Housemate you’re rooting for shares a sad story. Fam, your own life is an untelevised version of Big Brother and you’re just there trying to win the ultimate price. The long awaited and highly contended promotion; the guy/girl that every girl/guy wants; the lottery jackpot, even with just sand granule sized chances of winning.

Just like the Housemates, you’re very aware of the fact that in some of your races, only one person will lift the trophey but you race anyway because along this path, there are victories far more valuable that the ultimate. The friendships, the lessons and the self discovery; and just like that fam, you've been psyched. Keep voting for your muses.
