Amidst shock and utter disbelief from fellow housemates and viewers, popular housemate, Bassey has been evicted from the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality TV show. Bassey follows the likes of Miyonse, Soma, CocoIce, Gifty, Uriel, Kemen, and ThinTallTony, including the two fake housemates: Ese and Jon.
During last week’s nomination show, Efe, the Ultimate Head of House was instructed by Biggie to nominate four housemates that will be up for possible eviction, a decision that put up TBoss, Bally, Bassey, and Debie-Rise on the line for eviction. After the voters’ decision, Bassey automatically became the eighth housemate to be evicted from the BBNaija house.
Meanwhile, Debie-Rise just before Bassey’s eviction was declared saved by Ebuka Oba Uchendu, the host of the show. Thereafter, Ebuka set the adrenaline of the other three nominated housemates on the rise, taking a deep breath, while also pausing for a few seconds before ordering Bassey to exit the Big Brother house. The low moment was when Debie-Rise broke down, sobbing profusely, having lost a dear one to eviction.
While on stage with Ebuka, a strong-willed Bassey disclosed that he feels elated having come this far. Bassey said he believed he had given his best and he is convinced that he would fare well in the outside world. He said, “For me, it’s a win-win situation.” When asked about the next thing after Big Brother Naija, Bassey said “I might probably pursue my music career, but I look forward to working with the CEO of Marvin Records, Don Jazzy.” On his romantic exploit in the house, Bassey said, “Debie-Rise is the only one person I was comfortable with.” He said that the music enthusiast, Debie, wanted to be “more emotional” with him but he “didn’t want to lead her on and break her heart.” He further revealed that there is no future for himself and Debie-Rise as he had a girlfriend who is waiting for him.
Recall that Bassey and Debie-Rise were the housemates introduced by Biggie during the first mock eviction show. This created a lot of buzz in the house including on social media. However, the most underrated housemate, Debie-Rise became the first to be saved among the nominated housemates, an indication which affirmed her popularity among the viewers.
Interestingly, Bassey made the confession of the night when he dropped the hint that Efe was a threat during the PayPorte games. He said, “He is fast and calculative.” Meanwhile, Bassey played a critical role in the production of the theme song, See Gobbe and many would have thought that this would earn him another week’s stay in the house. However, his dream of winning the coveted prize of N25 million and an SUV was dashed after about 78 days in the BBNaija house. Like Debie-Rise always says, especially during her intimate conversations with Bassey, “The battle is not to the strong or most talented, but to whom God shows mercy.”
This week’s eviction show was graced by Praiz who serenaded the night with one of his songs. As the Big Brother Naija reality TV show draws to an end, who will be the next to be evicted?
