The Housemates took part in a Close Up Challenge today with four Tasks. The Housemates paired anonymously, male and female, and then tasked with composing a love song together. As fate would have it, Sheggz and Phyna were paired. Biggie made it a point to mention the irony in their pairing, noting how they moved from foes in the morning to lovers in the evening. This is because the two had an intense exchange of words in the morning during Task preparations.
Watch Phyna and Sheggz fight:
Bella was paired up with Chizzy, and this seemed like fate again after Chizzy fake Nominated both Bella and Sheggz.
The Housemates were given an hour to prepare their song and moved back into the House. On arrival, Bella was in the Kitchen preparing a meal, and next to her was her bae Sheggz. Chizzy kept moving up and down in the Kitchen, possibly trying to get Bella's attention. This did not work, and Chizzy decided to move on and composed by himself. Bella and Sheggz then sat at the table and proceeded to share a meal, then moved into the bedroom.
Chizzy continued to write the song, and Phyna kept moving from room to room. She was heard saying, "I don't know what to do o."
Biggie soon announced that there were only 15 minutes left to the presentation, and Bella sought out Chizzy to hear the song. Phyna and Sheggz did not get together beforehand and just moved straight to the Arena after changing for their album photoshoot.
On arrival, Biggie first called out all the late comers, then asked Bella and Sheggz to stand up. He informed them that he would no longer tolerate how they are sabotaging their partners for choosing not to work together with them in preparation for the Presentation. Sheggz was almost defending himself, adding that he suggested they both prepare their respective verses and perform them as a single song.
Biggie was not impressed, asking the other Housemates how they prepared for the Presentation. Working together was a common theme, and Biggie asked Bella and Sheggz to apologise to their partners, which they did.
Phyna later cried as she sat with Sheggz, and did not receive any comfort. Eloswag tried reaching out to her, but she did not look at him. He wanted to find out if she was okay, and when he asked Sheggz, he said she was not in a good mood.
When the Housemates moved back into the House, Phyna cried and expressed how she hates being unprepared. "I don't like that a human being is putting me off balance," she said.
Phyna put her game-face on when it was time to perform. Sheggz sang his verse with a couple of adlibs from Phyna, and Phyna did the same. She did not seem happy at the end of the performance, and Groovy was trying to comfort her, encouraging her to watch her energy and not allow people to see her feeling this low.
Will this incident make things even tenser for Sheggz and Phyna? Could it affect the Shella ship?
