BBNaija Week 1 Recap: HoH Challenge, Love Triangles and Everything In Between [See Photos]

The Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemates have spent one week in the house and finally, their true colours are beginning to show.

The housemates entered the house on Sunday and quickly got acquainted with each other. Naturally, a lot of things will occur, and from fights to love triangles, we have you covered in case you missed anything.

HoH Challenge

The Head of House (HoH) challenge was intense and exciting. The housemates had to play Biggie’s version of snakes and ladders, with some interesting tasks along the way. At the end of the games, Nengi won and became Head of House for the first week. She chose Wathoni to be her deputy.

Diary Sessions

The first Diary Session held and all the housemates shared what they felt about each other so far. As part of the safety precautions before entering the housemates, the housemates were isolated for two weeks, and a lot of them told Biggie that they never want to be isolated again. They also mentioned who they would love an alliance with and the housemates who would prove a challenge.

The Lovers

Love is always a present factor in the Big Brother Naija show and this season has brought its fair share of lovers. First up, we have Eric and Lilo. These two kicked it off almost immediately, and have been inseparable ever since. We finally got our kiss scene after the Saturday party. All we will say is, it was well worth the wait.

It would be criminal to not mention the love triangle between Ozo, Dorathy and Nengi. Initially, it seemed like Ozo was sending dual signals to both Nengi and Dorathy. Ozo did say he fancies Nengi but he doesn’t like her. We also thought Ozo was all for Dorathy, but that may have settled on friendship. Then we have Kiddwaya and Erica who have begun a more-than-friendly relationship that a lot of fans seem to be rooting for.

All Around The World

The housemates detailed the history of where they had travelled to, as part of the getting to know each other task that Biggie gave them. We had globetrotters like Erica who had been to over 6 countries and while others were Nigeria babies, albeit well-travelled in Nigeria. Prince also regaled us with stories of the time he represented Nigeria at Mr World. It was fun all around.

BBNaija Anthem featuring Kaisha and Tochi

While the housemates were having fun, Kaisha and Tochi gave us a new BBNaija anthem to vibe to. While Kaisha sang, Tochi dropped some smooth bars for us.

Betway Trivia

The first Betway Trivia was another exciting time. The housemates tested their knowledge of sports and we must say, we were impressed. They divided into two teams – the Black team led by Wathoni and the White team led by Nengi. After many questions, some of which no one could guess, the Black team won the trivia with 19 points.

Battle Lines Were Drawn

Ka3na and Wathoni had a little altercation during the Betway Trivia Challenge. Wathoni said she’s never eating anything Ka3na cooks again. Let’s see how that plays out. Lucy and Kaisha also had their moment later that night and we can say the floodgates for fights have officially been opened. Let’s hope no one gets disqualified this season.

Arena Games

The Betway Arena Games were intense and fun. The games consisted of four sections that the housemates had to pass in two minutes. The game was in honour of health workers and lab scientists all over the world. None of the housemates completed the challenge but Nengi and Lilo were spared from the penalty because they got the farthest in the game.

The Saturday Groove Night

A lot happened on Saturday Night as the housemates let loose and showed us their fashion and dancing skills. There were also a lot of dance couples and we got a kiss or two. Read more on all the juicy gist from the party here.
