Although he backed down on the first day of his head of house reign, Adekunle is now trying to use his exemplary leadership skills to ensure the All Stars secure a wager win.

Right from his time in the Level Up Season as the HoH, Adekunle has always had a fascinating leadership style; he typically is his calm, diplomatic, witty self that lets everyone do their own thing. However, he also ensures things get done when needed, and even in a house full of stars, he isn't backing down.

Wager task prep chronicles

While Mercy Eke had prompted him to take charge on the first day, it seems her words inspired him to unleash his inner leader. Earlier today, he gathered the housemates in the lounge to read a script Alex had prepared. Alex's script was loved by many. However, Uriel was worried about how they intended to bring it to life. Princess also added that it needed to focus on their previous celebratory moments in Biggie's house. 

HoH Adekunle suggested that they each share one word that encompasses their past Big Brother Naija experiences so they can use it to create chapters. The wager task preparations led to some deliberation among housemates as everyone wanted a say, and some even wandered off. However, Adekunle was quick to call the house in order.

Seyi also advised that instead of going back and forth, they needed to assign parts to people interested in taking them. Trying to do this turned out to be chaotic; however, they were eventually able to act out some iconic scenes from past seasons, like the reenactment of the fights between Whitemoney and Pere and Ike and Seyi. 

Is Adekunle on the right path to help the house secure a win, or will his openness to listening to many housemates' opinions spoil the broth eventually? Time will tell.
