Big Brother’s final words
It was an emotional moment as Big Brother addressed the finalists, calling them Big Brother Spectacular Six.
Although Big Brother told them that goodbyes precede new beginnings, he assured the housemates that beyond level-up walls are a world of endless possibilities.
“You have not just levelled up. You have become forces of nature. Immovable. Irresistible. Unstoppable. As they say, goodbyes precede new beginnings.
“This goodbye will herald the beginning of your reign as royalty. Housemates, go out there and rule. Big Brother bids you goodbye,” Big Brother said.
The first of the six to be evicted was Daniella, who said she was grateful to God and to everyone who supported her.
Beyond the house, she intends to push her poetry and logistics business as far as possible. She also hopes to get into acting.
The next housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother Naija Level Up house was Chichi.
“I made it to the end. Just expect that energy. I’m bringing fire. You guys are not ready,” she said.
Falz came with an interlude, performing two songs, including his sensational hit, ‘Bop Daddy’.
The next housemate to be evicted was Adekunle. This was followed in quick succession by Bella’s eviction.
The eviction show was spiced with clips from funny moments in the house, fun tasks and prizes, as well as the romantic moment.
