Marvis of Big Brother Naija

Palpable tension may have returned to the Big Brother Naija house as fresh nominations put TBoss, Debbie-Rise, Bally, and Marvis up for eviction, just less than 24 hours after the trio of Bally, TBoss and Debbie-Rise narrowly escaped eviction.

The house also experienced a rare change in leadership as Bisola became victorious in this week's Head of House contest, after over 78 days of anticipation and several botched attempts at clinching the house leadership. Bisola replaces Efe, who was the immediate past ultimate Head of House and was unfortunately nominated for eviction before being saved by Bisola, the new queen of the house. Efe, the proverbial cat with nine lives appears to have found favour with Bisola, who remains the only Housemate that is yet to be formally nominated for eviction.

This week’s nomination was sobering for some of the Housemates, who now have to sit up and re-think their strategies. For embattled Debie-Rise and TBoss, synergy appears to be the strategy as both openly canvassed for voters’ support. Both of them have been up for eviction back to back in the last two weeks.

What has become of the usual fun and excitement that the Big Brother Naija house is known for? Will the Housemates get over this eviction fever and go back to the lives that viewers know them for?

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu said one of the newly nominated housemates will have to go home by Sunday. Will the votes be influenced by the pleas from TBoss and Debie-Rise? Will Bally survive yet another eviction?
