At the start of the week, All housemates had their eyes on the head of house throne and all the luxuries it offers. The fight to get to the throne was tedious and filled with heavy conspiring. Eventually, Mercy Eke secured the coveted title leading to heightened emotions amongst the All Stars.

Soma breaks down

His close loss at the HoH games weighed heavy on his heart. A teary-eyed Soma expressed how hurt he felt in a chat with Angel, who consoled and encouraged him to keep his head up. She noted that he needed to be on his toes as everyone is playing the game fiercely because the grand prize of 120 million Naira is on the line. 

Doyin expresses her feelings

While excited that she got pardoned by the housemates, Doyin told Angel she was hurt by Kiddwaya choosing not to congratulate her. She described him as a "horrible person" Angel celebrated her and stated that he was just too into the game; she also added that Kiddwaya is the one who started the "parrot" rumor about Doyin.

A shocked Doyin could not believe her ears and later confronted Kiddwaya while chatting with Ilebaye.

Angel also noted that she knows Venita might be upset with her following the nominations show. The duo analysed Adekunle and Venita's ship with Doyin revealing that she had heard that Adekunle initially wanted to ship with Angel. 

HoH games outcome hurts housemates

Although Neoenergy decided to opt out of the last round of the HoH games, Cross was disappointed with his decision to leave as himself, Pere, Tolanibaj, Kiddwaya, and Soma had conspired and depended on Neoenergy's win. Neoenergy however, felt like the game got too intense, resulting in him pulling out. While discussing with HoH Mercy Eke, Frodd commended Neoenergy for "being a man" and bowing out. He noted that housemates like Kiddwaya and Soma wouldn't leave if they were in his shoes.

With Mercy Eke having the title most housemates wanted, will she have a seamless week as HoH, or is chaos on her path?
