With just days to go to the unveiling of the BBNaija Season 5 winner, speculations are flying as regards who will be the custodian of the 85 million naira worth of gifts and a lifetime worth of celebrity goodness.
Five finalists presently inhabit the 20 capacity space and amidst wine and wisdom nuggets, they are going down memory lane and recounting the experiences and journey of their fellow evicted housemates.
The voting lines opened early for the final week’s expected in pour of votes and so followers and supporters of Laycon, Vee, Neo, Dorathy and Nengi can have ample time to negotiate a long week of voracious campaigning and opponent bashing.
With only one love interest having survived the brutal evictions that has seen thriving love connections like Eric and Lilo, Brighto and Wathoni, Praise and Ka3na and more recently Ozor and Nengi, torn apart; it feels like one of them might have a shot at the finals.
But budding music artiste and Erica’s third wheel, Laycon may have by no means of his doing, a fierce fan base that will stop at nothing to make their favorite stringy-haired music crooner the winner of the bounty. This was seen in the way Nigerians voted for last week’s evicted nominees, with Laycon gleaning considerably more votes than the other housemates combined to come out at the top of the list.
Ex beauty queen, Nengi too has been known to have a formidable support base outside the house and now that her love interest, Ozor has been thrown to the outside world, it goes without saying that the soft-spoken, light-skinned lover boy will stop at nothing to get his sweetheart all the votes that she needs to win.
That leaves us with Dorathy, seemingly unassuming and underrated, but within all the layers of flesh, the lady packs a personality that has kept her through countless BBNaija nominations week after week. Something that the housemates at this stage are slowly beginning to realize and are just now making amends to correct their leanings and treat her like the fierce contender that she truly is.
But with all this intellectual speculations and permutations, the fact remains that only the housemate with the highest number of votes will be deserving of the title. So as the final day approaches, it will do you well to go all out for your favourite housemate in a final attempt to make your vote count because after this week, your constant adulation and professed love will do them no real good.
