Cross Okonkwo and Pere Egbi, the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) All-Stars housemates, have discussed their friendship on the reality TV show.  


Cross, who initiated the conversation, lampooned Pere for not standing up for him anytime other housemates hold “ill-talks” against him.

The reality star claimed CeeC told him Pere does not defend him even though he sees him as a brother.

“You are telling me why I do not trust you. I am breaking out the reasons,” Cross queried.


“These are things that have laden up to the reasons why I do not trust you. Like you said, I do not think, for some reason.

“What were you talking about with CeeC? Should I call CeeC?

“And secondly, again, CeeC has been telling me you are not there to look after me. That if I am not in that ship and somebody talks about me like you are not there to defend me for the fact that we are brothers.”


Responding to the claims, Pere said he has never engaged in any conversation that had people “talk ill” of Cross.

He told Cross that “I have been through for you just like you do for me”.

Pere also urged Cross not to call CeeC into the conversation because “CeeC is not a straightforward person”.

“You know all the sh*ts that I have been through for you. You have come through for me. I have come through for you,” he replied.


“We have been there for each other. I do not see a reason why you should cook these thinking in your head. It hurts. I am not gonna lie to you.

“Because Cross, there has never been a time. I have never been in a gathering where they spoke ill of you in this house.

“I did not mention your name. CeeC is not a straightforward person.”


This season’s BBNaija show began on July 23 with 20 former housemates.

It is expected to end on October 1.

The winner of this season will take home a cash prize of N120 million, the highest since the inception of the show.
