Day 58 – 19 Sept: Pains and gains of the toughest nominations – BBNaija

19 September 2023
Friendships were lost and mourned while celebrations had to continue.

The fewer the housemates, the tougher it is to nominate and this means, recovering from one's eventual nominations decisions could be even harder. Well, last night presented mixed emotions as the house was officially divided into four confirmed finalists and five nominated housemates. 

Ceec's unfinished business
After nominations, Finalist Ceec seized the opportunity to address a burning issue. She confronted fellow finalist Cross, expressing her disapproval of his previous nominations, which led to a heated exchange of words. Finalist Cross, in his defence, named instances where he protected Ceec's interests in the All Stars house. It seemed like Cross' explanation calmed Ceec down as she swiftly let the matter go and the two went on to discuss other issues.

Angel reduced to tears
Angel was so near yet so far after on two ocassions last night as she came second in thehead of house challenge and was one of five to find a black envelope but, it wasn't 'the right one'. The one half of Somgel spent most of the evening in tears, inconsolable in bed. Her boo Soma came in handy as he cooked, fed her in bed and listened to her vent about her feelings about being nominated. In a later conversation with Angel and Soma, Finalist Cross highlighted that he was afraid of the Ceec, Ilebaye and Mercy Eke combination making it to the finale, but consoled himself that he had won with or without the 120 Million Naira prize money.

Adenita's dinner for two

Adenita didn't let their nomination stop them from eating well. In Venita's words, "Leave me oh, I am nominated," chanting to Adekunle, as if he isn't equally nominated. As they ate, they planned for their impending dinner for two and engaged in playful banter. It would seem as though these two have decided not to let anything spoil their mood. "This is when I wish I had my black suit," Adekunle gisted as plans for their dinner for two progressed. On Sunday, Venita spent 1800 Moniepoint coins on a dinner for two during a surprise special shopping spree arranged by Big Brother.

While Ceec, Ilebaye and Mercy Eke couldn't hide their excitement for making it to the finale as they talked about how their immunity came at a time when they needed it the most. Pere on the other hand, sought comfort in his bed as he went to bed with thoughts of his nomination on his mind.

With the game inching closer to its conclusion, we can't help but anticipate the next twist in the All Stars' journey.
