09 August 2020
Like everything else, there’s a fine line between supporting, protecting and obsessing over your love interest.

There is a difference between the roles of a loving supportive partner and a friend who is deeply in love with you

In the beginning of a relationship or friendship, we all strive to leave a good impression. No one wants to come across as clingy or negative. Even the most careful of us will give off a few cues, and our partner can sense our insecurities.

But what happens when your friend takes over the role of your boyfriend? Let’s get straight to the point… Do you think Laycon overreacted after the party last night? Let’s analyze this abeg…

Overprotective bestie?

Last night was turnt with DJ Consequence and LadiPoe giving us hits back to back and of course, being a Johnnie Walker event, the Housemates had booze for days. While some were able to control their alcohol intake, others… well, let’s just say had too much to drink.

On this table sat Erica as she started displaying signs of being drunk and she went to meet Laycon at the party – hugging, dancing and holding on to him. Under the influence of alcohol, they both shared some intimate moments and dances on the dance floor.

Naturally, after the party, all Housemates either went to bed or to get stuffed with more food. While Erica went to bed with the help of some of the Housemates including Dorathy, Lucy, Laycon and Tolanibaj, Laycon had a conversation later with Praise.

According to Laycon, Erica was trying to kiss him at the party and saying things about trying to avoid Kiddwaya in her drunken state to avoid doing things she’ll regret doing on television. While making his point, Laycon kept stressing on the fact that Erica should sleep in his room so he can keep an eye on her, maybe even sleep on Kaisha’s bed instead. “She has a man, stop involving yourself in all this,” Praise responded as Laycon still looked concerned for Erica.

While some of you thought Laycon was an absolute darling for looking after Erica,

...some of you think all this could have been avoided if...

Meanwhile, some Housemates are not even interested in all this shipping going on abeg.

On the other end of this stick was Erica asking for Kiddwaya to come to her bed as she kept saying, “I wish I didn’t like Kidd”. Kiddwaya finally came to her bed to tuck her in and give her some kisses, while Laycon stayed watching… again, trying to protect his friend, we guess.

What do you think?

Praise went about narrating Laycon’s ordeal to Lucy, “Erica told him she likes him and even tried to kiss him. I saw it with my eyes but he refused but she was drunk and said Laycon should please keep Kidd away from her,” he said. After hearing this gist, Lucy bluntly told Laycon that it was his responsibility to watch over her because he poured her drink for her at the party. Again, Praise told Lucy that the best thing is for Laycon to get over Erica. How easy should that be? Maybe not so easy.

Speaking of drinking, Erica won’t be the only one waking up with a hangover in the morning as Vee also had a great time drowning herself in some alcohol. Thanks to her superman Neo, she was well taken care of and put to sleep.

I said what I said, periodt!

They may just be a couple of days into their newly formed relationship, but Tolanibaj and Prince have definitely set some ground rules to keep their ship sailing.

As Prince was talking to Trikytee about wanting to remain friends with everyone in the House but his current situation isn’t allowing that, Tolanibaj walked in on them and demanded to know what the conversation was about.

After hearing that it involved her, she didn’t look pleased that Prince didn’t talk to her first about it. So when Prince and Trikytee asked why she didn’t like Prince being friends with Wathoni, she sat and explained her points. “I want you to reduce your talk with her, just set boundaries. I don’t want to embarrass myself on national TV and I know you have some feelings for her,” she said. Would you blame her though, just last week, Prince was juggling his feelings between Nengi, Wathoni and Tolanibaj.

Do you think Tolanibaj overdid it though? 

Trikytee being the middleman and mediator in their conversation responded saying, “If there’s anyone you should be worried about, it’s not Wathoni, it’s Nengi”. Then Tolanibaj replied saying she only has one person to face and that’s Prince, so she’s laying down the rules for him to ensure peace and light in their ship.

Lol, see this...

Oh boy, these situationships in Biggie’s House just dey turn person’s brain anyhow. Anyhow, we’re here for the drama sha.

Thank you, next!

Barely a week since his resident bae was Evicted and Eric was found lying in bed with another female Housemate… Yup, you guessed right, Wathoni!

Nothing else defines entanglements than what’s currently going on in the Lockdown House and it’s rather surprising that we’ve seen every episode that one can ever imagine in just three weeks. So what could be next?
