Last night, amidst the whirlwind of nominations, seven housemates faced the possibility of eviction: Adekunle, Alex, Ceec, Ilebaye, Mercy Eke Neoenergy and Whitemoney. However, what stood out was the growing bond between Venita and Angel.
Their bond last night began when both survived the nomination process, and Venita expressed her gratitude for her journey and Angel's presence. Venita's words held a poignant sentiment, as she mentioned her wish for a similar sisterly relationship due to her early life upheaval.
Comparing their friendship to that of sisters, Venita spoke of the profound trust she felt in Angel, stating that she could leave her with her children outside the house. This revelation was a surprising turn of events, especially considering the tension that had previously existed between the two due to a nomination fallout and a quarrel over task preps.
The concept of vulnerability took centre stage during their conversation. Venita shared her belief that vulnerability could be a strength, sparking a conversation between the housemates.
Just last week, Angel and Doyin had gossiped about Venita, labelling her as a "mean girl." Venita referred to Doyin during her conversation with Angel, addressing Doyin's comments. Surprisingly, Venita expressed that she was not upset with Doyin, highlighting her comfort with her journey in the Big Brother Naija All Stars house, despite not being proud of certain moments, such as the infamous "shower hour."

One cannot help but wonder if the shared experience of being in ships played a role in cementing their bond. Their connecting conversation came on the heels of a fallout between Adekunle and Venita just before the week six Saturday night rave. In her distress, Venita sought solace in Angel, who appeared to play a pivotal role in reconciling the two feuding housemates. Could this shared experience have created a unique bond between Angel and Venita?
Is it possible that the friendship between Angel and Venita is one-sided? While Venita seems to have embraced the connection wholeheartedly, Angel's true feelings remain a mystery.
