In a dramatic turn of events, the Big Brother Naija All Stars house witnessed an unprecedented eviction night that sent shockwaves through the house. Three housemates and a houseguest —Alex, Neoenergy, Sholzy, and Whitemoney—were officially shown the door, marking a first in the All Stars season.
The night kicked off with head of house Cross addressing his tumultuous HoH reign and admitting that the pressures of overseeing a house filled with what he referred to as "children" had gotten to him. However, his explanation left Ebuka puzzled, and he swiftly moved on to deliver the first eviction blow. The announcement that Whitemoney, who had never faced a Big Brother Naija eviction before, having won his season, was leaving the house came as a shock to all. Neoenergy, who was sitting beside him in the lounge, was visibly stunned and his jaw almost dropped to the floor.
Next on the hot seat was Venita. Ebuka wasted no time in questioning her about the state of her relationship with Mercy Eke, who was seen taking a sip of a red drink, adding to the drama. Venita confessed to the mistrust in their friendship, but Ebuka probed further about her lack of communication with Mercy Eke.
Neoenergy's eviction took a surprising turn as he chose to share a departure speech with the house, but concluded it on the stage by adding that his relationship with Tolanibaj is a friendly one.
The spotlight then turned to Ilebaye, the first housemate to accumulate two strikes, as she faced questions about the house's perception that she often instigated conflicts among the housemates. Ilebaye vehemently denied these allegations, stating, "I've realised my mistakes," but goading others was not among them.
Amidst the already tense live eviction night, Ebuka dropped a bombshell, exposing Angel for the infamous Adekunle love letter. That time, she was sitting right next to a visibly shocked Venita but Angel simply let out an embarassed chuckle, almost dismissing Ebuka's allegation. Next on the chopping block was Alex who confidently told Ebuka that she ensured that Cross took her place at the finale. As she was about to head out of the eviction doors, Alex received an unexpected embrace from Ceec who muttered, "It was nice getting to you again".
With the eviction of these three housemates and houseguest Sholzy's exit, the Big Brother All Stars house underwent a major shake-up. The unexpected departures left the remaining housemates reeling, as alliances and friendships were put to the test. As the house becomes quieter with fewer voices and personalities, how will the dynamics of the game change?
