The sixth season of Big Brother Naija tagged Shine Ya Eye, premiered Saturday night with 11 male housemates unveiled by show’s host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
The first set of housemates – Boma, Saga, Yousef, Pere, Whitemoney, Niyi, Yerins, Jaypaul, Emmanuel Sammie and Cross – gave off a fun, bold, unique and energetic vibe, which will keep the viewers glued to their screens over the next 72 days.
The second launch which took place on Sunday, certainly lived up to the energy of the first launch show. After hours of anticipation, the BBNaija fans as well as the male contestants who entered the house the night before, finally got to see the female housemates.
To spice things up, the male housemates decided to play a prank on the female housemates; Angel, Peace, Jackie B, Tega, Arin, Maria, Liquorose, Beatrice, Princess, Saskay, and Nini, by not saying a word to them as they made their way to the living room. The female housemates seemed worried and confused as they did not understand why the guys were giving them the ‘cold shoulder’. The guys finally ended the prank once all the female housemates were present and welcomed them with a loud cheer.
After Ebuka Obi-Uchendu revealed the remaining 11 housemates, making the housemates 22 in total, Biggie announced that two of the housemates are ‘Wild Cards’ and at the end of the week, if the other housemates can identify them, they will be evicted from the show. If not, they will be allowed to compete for the grand prize. The Wild Cards will also be revealed to the audience in a special diary session this Thursday.
BBNaija season 6 airs 24/7 on DStv channel 198 and GOtv Max and Plus on channel 29.
