29 August 2020
After a wild night of barbecue and games, came an emotional rainstorm in the Lockdown House.

We’re not sure if it was the effect of the alcohol but after the heated games in the Garden, some Housemates kept us glued for more entertainment with some entanglement drama.

What next with Kiddrica?

After her discussion with Tolanibaj, Erica went into the House to have a conversation with Kiddwaya to let him know her deep feelings for him and, to define what they have. After what happened to be a long one-sided talk, Erica asked Kiddwaya for a response to all she had said. “I have nothing to say,” he responded. This triggered Erica and she decided to call their situationship off. While extending her hands to give him what seemed like a farewell handshake, she told him, “Have a nice life, it was nice knowing you”.

Two breakups in one day? How are the shippers doing?

The mediators

Trikytee and Prince who were in the closet while Kiddwaya and Erica had their conversation, got involved in this matter. Erica told them that she deserves more than Kiddwaya is offering her and went ahead to narrate their conversation to them. She also made them understand that she is a catch outside the House and has a queue of men waiting for her, but while she’s interested in only Kiddwaya, he’s not reciprocating the feelings. “I’ve taken a lot from him, I’m not interested anymore so I’ll just focus on my career,” she tells them while also calling Kiddwaya a spoilt brat. She also mentioned the fact that Kiddwaya broke up with her earlier in the day and while explaining this, she started crying. This prompted Prince and Trikytee to comfort her and give her a hug. Kiddwaya walked back into the conversation to give her a soothing hug and then told her to go take a bath and stop crying.

While they joked about their individual counseling skills, Prince and Trikytee called Kiddwaya aside to ask him about his genuine feelings for Erica. “Do you like her? How do you feel about her,” they kept asking him. Kiddwaya then proceeded to explain his situationship with Erica and made them understand that he cares for her but he can’t give her what she wants because of his background, and how he grew up without having much love shown around him. He described it as ‘tough love’ and said Erica wants something more than he can currently offer her.

The ‘counselors’ advised him to be gentle with her and to pay attention to her needs. Prince told Kiddwaya that he believes they’re alike because he also doesn’t know how to express his feelings to someone he cares about. While Trikytee kept insisting that this whole drama was because of the truth or dare games with Kiddwaya carrying Nengi on his back, Prince told him that he’s sure that there are underlying issues between them. Kiddwaya proceeded to tell his counselors that he has told every girl he’s been with that he’s not good with emotions, but they still keep falling for him and he doesn’t want to hurt them. He said this is the case with Erica because he really cares about her and doesn’t want her to get hurt. Prince asked to know where the relationship is going and Kiddwaya told him that he can’t make Erica happy because his life is not built that way. He explained his father’s politics and how he’s not wired for emotions, which also affected how he grew up. Prince concluded his counseling session by telling Kiddwaya to weigh how he comfortable he is with his life and how he currently feels.

Here’s how you judged

A friendly advice

Just before the conversation with Kiddwaya, Erica told Tolanibaj that she feels Laycon wishes her bad, so she went ahead to confront him. He denied this saying, “I don’t wish you bad, I know you already know how I feel about you”.

Now, after her conversation with KIddwaya, we saw Erica and Laycon having a conversation in the Garden. From Laycon telling her that he felt bad when she was given two Strikes, to Erica telling him that she feels he wants her out of the House, the two had a lengthy chat. “If you ever catch me looking at you, it’s not because I want you out of the House or I wish you bad; it’s because I often imagine how it would have turned out with you and I always admire how beautiful you are,” he told her. “I still care about you and I hope at some point I get to show that, but every time you come to talk to me, it’s just a relapse and I don’t want that,” he further added.

Then Erica spoke about her current situation with Kiddwaya. “I picked Kiddwaya, stupid decision. I’m sure my best friends are slapping me through the screen right now,” she told Laycon. “No, it’s not,” Laycon responded. He then went on to advise her to stop thinking about what people think and says if she’s happy about what she’s doing, then she should talk to Kiddwaya more.

In the middle of their conversation, Kiddwaya walked into the Garden to ask Erica for a chat. “When I’m done with my conversation, I’ll come in,” she replied. Then proceeded to call him a spoilt brat. She confided in Laycon about how she must remind herself that she’s on her own, seeing that Laycon wanted his space and she’s not sure of her situation with Kiddwaya. They both ended their conversation making peace with each other, then Erica asked for a hug to seal their friendship.

From this chat, some of you think Laycon has moved on

Now some of you were more concerned about this

Well, one thing we’ve learnt for sure is that the Lockdown couples usually have emotional rollercoasters in the House and whenever it seems like there’s no hope for their ship, they usually come back looking stronger together. This might be the case with Kiddrica, let’s just wait and see how it plays out.
