Sholzy pleading with Biggie for cash in the diary room was the last thing anyone expected to watch on their screens today. He, Ceec, Ilebaye, Mercy Eke, Neoenergy, and Whitemoney filed into the diary room, where they spoke with Biggie about the recent evictions and other BBNaija matters.

Doyin's eviction

In her diary session, Ilebaye spoke to Biggie about being shocked by Doyin's eviction and expressed disappointment at not getting a parting letter from her like some of the other housemates. Other housemates who spoke to Biggie were, however, not shocked by Doyin's eviction – they seemed to have seen it coming. Ceec, who received a parting letter from Doyin, explained that she would like to explore their friendship more outside the house, while Whitemoney gushed about her being the most honest housemate. 

Housemates speak about evictions

KimOprah's eviction

Mercy Eke expressed regret for nominating KimOprah as she'd begun doubting if she had been a fake housemate after all. Meanwhile, Ceec felt she owed her. Whatever that is, we are not sure, but it seems that KimOprah's eviction had an impact on the dynamics in the house. Ilebaye also expressed disappointment about her departure, calling out her fellow housemates for not giving her a chance thanks to rife speculation that she had been a fake housemate. 


Tears and pleas

Tears flowed freely in the diary room this evening as Ilebaye and Mercy spoke to Biggie about their frustration with the actions of their fellow All Stars housemates. Ilebaye cried about not receiving a letter from Doyin as she saw other housemates, such as Ceec, get a letter that made her smile. Ilebaye felt sad that Doyin did not dim it fit to try to salvage their friendship despite their differences. Mercy also teared up as she told Biggie that some of her fellow housemates were not happy about her presence in the house. She expressed her disappointment in their lack of support and questioned why they would harbour such negative feelings towards her.

Mercy expressed her desire to focus on her own journey in the house and not let the actions of others affect her. Biggie's diary room became a house of comic relief when Sholzy, after expressing gratitude to Biggie for being in the house, went on his knees to plead with Biggie for a loan. Even though he was obviously joking, Sholzy's playful nature brought light-heartedness to the diary room. Below are some of the reactions from socials to Sholzy's shenanigans. 

We get a glimpse of the various personalities and dynamics of the housemates in the diary room, and we are definitely eager to see the All Stars fully express themselves so that we can see who they really are.
