Following her team's win at tonight's arena games, it's safe to say Head of House Mercy Eke is on a winning streak. 

The games required the All Stars to pair up, create and present a business pitch worthy of winning a five million naira grant. Frodd and Mercy Eke's business plan for "The Cloud Kitchen NG," a food business, stood out, and Adekunle and Venita's online platform for artisans called "Blue Pages" earned their team the rightful spot as the runner-up. 

All housemates were at liberty to choose their partners, with each of the nine teams focusing on businesses in different sectors. All teams were judged based on the sustainability and strength of their business idea, pitch delivery, communication skills, and the overall scope of their proposal. 

Ilebaye and Kiddwaya argue

While most teams were able to work together amicably, trouble ensued between Ilebaye and her partner Kiddwaya. Following their presentation in the Arena, Ilebaye accused Kiddwaya of sabotaging their win; according to her, he presented a different pitch from what they agreed, which she believed cost her the money. Kiddwaya, however, felt he did nothing wrong; he exclaimed Ilebaye should have brought her idea forward if she had one.

Doyin criticised Kiddwaya's decision as Frodd consoled a hurt Ilebaye and advised her to continually push her ideas as they are valid and inform Biggie in the Arena next time. However, not all housemates were on Ilebaye's side; Seyi and Ike questioned why she didn't pair up with her buddy Doyin and said Doyin probably didn't pick her because she knew Ilebaye could be lazy during tasks. 

BBNaija geng, who was in the wrong? Ilebaye or Kiddwaya?
