As they say, the women we have come to admire for their grace and strength did not get to where they are because things worked out; it was in fact quiet the contrary and they handled it a thousand different ways, on a thousand different days. That’s the thing about them; they kept surviving. The ‘sheroes’ in the Big Brother House are not different. With all their imperfections, they fearlessly graced our screens and let it out and for this reason, we raise their flags.
Were pretty sure that many would agree that Bambam was dipped in peace and sprinkled with empathy. Even when asked what her Nomination motives are, her answers are never direct attacks at the other Housemates’ personalities but rather focused on their overall contributions or lack thereof. They say that empaths are naturally giving, spiritually open, and good listeners and we fully agree with the notion because Bambam is all that and more. As the reigning HoH, we’re certain that greater things are to come.
If Anto was a tree, she’d defy nature by bearing different fruit on the same branch. The kind that can uproot and reposition at will because her personality is as stern and stable as none we’ve seen before. She’s been able to keep her emotions in check and has her eye fixed on the price, call he Hawk. Never having had a single argument, her approach is that of friend and foe; I like you but I don’t know you enough to trust you. She’s loyal to her pack and driven, just some of the reasons why she graces the Big Brother Naija House. There’s more to Anto than meets the eye.
Best believe that Cee-C isn’t just a pretty face because she’s proven it countless times. Her resilience and strong will make her one of the toughest female acts to follow. She draws her strength from past experiences and doesn’t allow anything or anyone close enough to hurt her. Like many of us, she has things bottled up inside, things that make her come across as aggressive. She has oodles of compassion deeply embedded and has tons of love to give. Thick-skinned and determined, no one calls her out and gets away with it. Diamonds are always rough around the edges.
Nina is an epitome of passion and affection. Soft spoken with streams of potential and a long road ahead of her. She’s shown just how the same water that softens lentils also hardens eggs. Instead of being broken down by criticism, she’s used it as a building blocks for a newer and stronger version of herself. She represent all the young people going through metamorphoses from caterpillars to butterflies. Her instant attraction to Miracle isn’t a sign if weakness but that of strength and self-assurance. After all, there are decades where nothing happens and days where decades happen.
Spirited Ifu Ennada
Highly driven and talented Ifu Ennada isn’t afraid to adjust the volume whenever she feels that she isn’t audible. Her zest for life reminds us that youth is not just an age factor, it’s a philosophy. She creates her own rhythm while respecting the difference in those of other. There are a couple of time where we saw a completely playful and sexually awaked side of her. No topic is taboo and no challenge too overwhelming. She too has things bottled up when with time, these will spill and allow her to reach new heights and own it. Her light, no one can dim.
Alex dances to the beat of her own drum and is still on her muse finding journey. Authentic and sometimes naïve, she confesses to what she doesn’t know and contributes to what she does. Based on one or two, Alex has stars shining on her behalf and on her command. There are those who try to impose a ‘how to live’ manual; not with Alex. Colourful hair and even more colourful personalities, her life is a canvas and she’s the artist. Only those half as lost in the same trance will understand the illustrations.
