Day 75: The Grateful Gathering

13 September 2019
This morning, gathered in a circle, the Pepper Dem Gang (well except for Mercy, Cindy and Tacha) each expressed all they were grateful for.

After the session with Hamisha Daryani Ahuja, the Pepper Dem Gang seem to have embraced a new approach to living. An approach initiated by Mike that focused on being grateful for the little things. Without a fuss, the Housemates gathered together in a circle and expressed heartfelt appreciation for things that brought them joy.


Still impressed by him going all out at the Wager Task, Seyi expressed gratefulness for Elozonam and the extra work he put in. Although it might have hurt his purse, paying Team Legend for their win was another thing Seyi added to the list of the things he was grateful for. He was also grateful for everyone waking up hale and hearty and happy to be with the rest of the Pepper Dem Gang. With him up for Eviction this Sunday, that’s definitely one thing he’d be grateful for.


After an impressive performance at the Wager Task, Frodd was able to smile back into the House with Bet9ja Coins and for this, he was grateful. He was also grateful for life, good breakfast and the rest of the Housemates.


Diane’s party was a regular feature on what the Housemates were grateful for. She was also grateful for the win, coins, Biggie, life, health, rain and dinner from Pure Bliss. We saw how much she had to eat and all she took away and we totally understand why she was grateful. Compared with last week, this week has been relatively peaceful. Khafi noticed too and she expressed gratitude.


Coming into the Pepper Dem House long after all the other Housemates and staying for seven weeks is a big feat. A feat Elozonam was grateful for. He and Cindy are the last two Housemates remaining from their set. He was also grateful that his head wasn’t hurting as much, his big appetite and Diane’s party.


She also had the usual list of what she was grateful for, her party tonight, being happy, surviving workout, but one thing on her grateful list that made us pause was when she particularly singled out Elozonam and expressed gratefulness for meeting him. Could their relationship be something we should look forward to even outside the House?


A week Omashola doesn’t have to stand up during the Live Eviction Show is a good week for him and he expressed gratitude for that. He was also grateful that Mike initiated this session.


Ike wasn’t a man of many words but he still shared how grateful he was for being alive, his arms and legs, Diane’s party and working out, but no mention of Mercy. This we found weird because he expressed gratitude for alcohol. Twice! So it definitely couldn’t be because he ran out of time to mention Mercy. There was no stopwatch.


He initiated the session and was the last to go. Mike was grateful for Friday, health, energy in the circle, rain, being able to sleep in spite of Team Enigma’s loss and Seyi snoring. He was also grateful at being in Biggie’s house and a warm shower.

It’s always nice to see the Pepper Dem Gang take time off petty squabbles and start the day on a grateful note.
