Day 3: “One love, one Nigeria”
The Housemates took it upon themselves to proudly show off where in Nigeria they are from
After being given a stern talking to by Biggie and having their cooking privileges taken away, the Housemates needed a “pick me up” to improve the mood in the House. They took it upon themselves to do an imprompty traditional fashion parade so that each Housemate could showcase their outfits and explain where were from in Nigeria, also talking about their traditional foods and what made them unique.
The colourful outfits took on new meaning as each Housemate explained the meaning behind each outfit and accessory. Gifty explained that her whip was made of real horse hair and it signified that she was of royal blood. Each Housemate took turns to model their look and tell everyone a little bit about where they came from and what they were wearing. CocoIce looked amazing in her Buba and Iro traditional wear showing everyone how she danced and she explained what they ate at family parties, as did Efe in his outfit from his hometown Warri in the southern Delta state.
With Nigeria being such a diverse country, Biggie was treated to beautiful traditional outfits with each Housemate wearing their clothing with pride. The viewers learned about the Hausa tribe from Bally who wore his Babariga and Sokoto outfit brimming with fierce pride. With ThinTallTony treated us to the traditional Calabar “zig-zag” dance, the Etigi. Miyonse looked sharp in his Agbada and Sokoto attire from his hometown of Badagry while Kemen strutted his stuff in his improvised Ibom outfit from Akwa.
Not to be outdone, the ladies dazzled us in their beautiful and colourful outfits with Edo native, TBoss looking gorgeous in her Warri coral dress and headgear. Bisola was rather fetching in her Ogun traditional dress called Buba and Iro. Uriel showed off the looks from Ibibio and Soma looked suave in his outfit from his trib of Ibo. Marvis looked like a model in her traditional Rivers People outfit.
This seemed to uinite the Housemates as they all stood together hand in hand and proclaimed “One love, one Nigeria.” Will this help the Housemates to make up their minds about who to nominate for possible eviction? Tune in tomorrow to find out.
