Miyonse, Efe and Soma have been nominated for eviction on Sunday from the on-going Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show.
How the housemates were nominated was a story replete with intrigues, betrayal and surprises, according to The Nation.
It was the eighth day of the show and Biggie gave each housemate 45 seconds to make their nomination decision, leading to a gloomy feeling afterwards.
Only the two new housemates; Debbie-Rise and Bassey were exempted from nominating and being nominated.
Biggie kicked off the first live nomination show by calling Bally into the Diary Room.
And there was no time wasted as Biggie asked Bally to give his two nominations in 45 seconds – same for the 11 other old housemates.
Bally voted out Miyonse and Soma; Bisola voted out Miyonse and Gifty; Kemen voted out Miyonse and Soma; TBoss voted out Miyonse and Gifty; TTT voted out Gifty and Miyonse; Uriel voted out Bisola and TBoss; Miyonse voted out Kemen and Marvis; Marvis voted out Miyonse and Gifty; Soma voted out Kemen and TTT; Gifty voted out CoCoIce and Bisola; Efe voted out Miyonse and TBoss while CoCoIce voted out Miyonse and Soma.
In all, eight housemates nominated Miyonse, including his presumed girlfriend, Tboss. Gifty got four nominations, while Soma ended up being the third housemates with the highest nominations with three nominations.
However, as is the tradition on the show, the Head of House must save one of the three and replace him or her. With the task of ‘save and replace’ rested on CocoIce as Head of House, she saved Gifty and replaced her with Efe.
The housemate with the least votes from viewers and fans will be evicted from the house.
In order to save their favourite housemates to continue in the house, fans have taken to social media platforms to canvass for votes for the housemate of their choice.
Here are some of the tweets;
@MissAmadi,“RT if you want Miyonse to stay, he was the only one that tried pleasing the viewers by getting hooked with a babe, only say the babe na snake.’’
@SuzzyJay, “Please RT if you want SOMA in the house, #BBNaija is my sweetheart.’’
@Adaezeu, “I already voted Miyonse, his Casanova antiques(antics) keeps us all in pure suspense and keeps our tongues wagging.’’
@ChuChuBeyonce, “let’s not think Efe is safe, let’s vote for him so that what happened in 2014 won’t repeat itself again.’’
@Razzy_mme, “If Efe should leave this house on Sunday… then I will be sure #BBNaija is not following votes… Retweet if you agree.’’
@SteveChuks, “TEAM SOMA, TEAM SOMA! Please and please vote to keep Soma in the house, I am begging you guys.’’
Highlight of the 10-week show include the weekly eviction of a housemate on Sunday, as the 14 housemates compete for the cash prize of N25 million and a brand new Kia Sorento SUV.
