Big Brother Nigeria housemates

Things are definitely heating up in the Big Brother Naija house!

After a week of excitement and a mock eviction which shook the housemates and brought some of them to tears, Big Brother Naija is set for the first real eviction come Sunday 5 February. The housemate with the least number of votes will be evicted from the house, cutting short the dream of winning 25 million naira and an SUV.

On Monday night, BBNaija fans witnessed the first live nomination show. The housemates were each given 45 seconds to nominate two fellow housemates for possible eviction. However, new housemates Bassey and Debie-Rise were exempted from nominating and being nominated this week. After the housemates’ individual sessions with Biggie, it was revealed that Miyonse, Soma and Gifty got the most nominations from other housemates. Perhaps the most shocking move was when TBoss, Miyonse’s on and off "girlfriend" put him up for nomination!

Then the moment came when Biggie asked the head of house (HoH), CocoIce to save one of the nominated housemates and replace with another. CocoIce then proceeded to save Gifty and replaced her with Efe.

The first eviction show holds on Sunday 5 February. To save your favorite housemate, viewers in Nigeria should text the word “Vote” followed by the housemate’s name to 32052. While for the rest of Africa, follow the AfricaMagictv official account on WeChat and click on the menu option "BBNaija" and select your preferred housemate. Voting closes at 19:00 CAT on Saturday 4 February.

The show is aired 24/7 in 45 countries from Nigeria through East, West and Southern Africa on channel 198.
