The fifth eviction of the ongoing Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show held on Sunday night with Brighto, Wathoni and Tolanibaj becoming the latest housemates to be ejected from the ‘Lockdown’ house.


Ka3na and Lilo were the first housemates to evicted from the show followed by Tochi and Eric. Kaisha Umaru was next before Praise.

How did it happen?

Brighto, Tolanibaj and Wathoni were among the 12 housemates put up for possible eviction for the week.


Ozo, the head of house (HoH), and Nengi, his deputy, were excluded from eviction in line with the newly introduced arrangement for this year’s edition by Biggie, the instructive voice behind the show’s screen.

Last night’s eviction was, however, a sharp contrast from previous editions since the commencement of the show’s season five. The previous evictions were usually done after voting by fans and fellow housemates.

But on Sunday, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the show’s host, announced that only votes by the fans would be used.


“In another season 5 twist, Big Brother has introduced a change in the voting system. From tonight’s Sunday night live eviction show henceforth, the ‘Lockdown’ housemates will no longer vote for the housemate (s) for possible eviction from the four who polled the least votes,” it wrote in a blog post.

“This change will no doubt have far-reaching consequences as housemates will no longer be able to influence who goes and who stays in Biggie’s House.

“How this change will manifest itself in the way ‘Lockdown’ housemates relate will only be seen and felt as the finale draws near.”

Ebuka then asked all the housemates nominated for possible eviction to stand up before he announced the results of the votes during the course of the week’s voting by fans.


The results showed Wathoni had 3.75% votes, Tolanibaj got 2.75% votes while Brighto had 2.68% votes respectively to emerge in the bottom three.

The trio were then evicted from the show.

The remaining 11 housemates will continue the chase for the N85 million grand prize.
