    I’m happy for him, truly disappointments can turn into blessings . Many more great things will come his way in Jesus name. Amen

      Don’t worry. Things will work out well for him. Before he got to the house he was an ETISALAT ambassador. More endorsement deals, more success, more money. I was sad but its not the end of the world. Some of his enemies, Sheila, Nhlanhla, JJ are co are suddenly becoming “friends” cause they need Naija connections. Don’t worry, God will make him even bigger!!

      It is not! One of his friends on twitter stated that it is completely false! The dude might be rich but according to Tayo’s team he’s received no money from him, so y’all should chill with the rumour.

    Shame on uti and Ik. U guys can go to hell for all I care for d insults upon our country how on earth can ik be under bba and watch as naija is being deprive of her glory? Shame we all know dat Akintayo is d winner but with bba ojoro. Anyway greater heights Akintayo and more blessings and open door of blessings all around.

    • Ellak

      December 11, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      how was he deprived? learn to accept defeat. I never for once voted for Tayo because of his character, my votes went to Idris. you people should tell him the truth so he can work on himself.

    • Adwoa

      December 11, 2014 at 2:34 pm

      I’m not even from Nigeria but I voted for Tayo.
      I thought he was real. Many people pretended to be what they were not because of $300k. If you liked Idris, fine but don’t say Tayo should work on his attitude. Excuse me, what about Sheillah, JJ, Alusa and the likes?
      Those calling Tayo mannerless and those saying he doesn’t respect women really need to re-evaluate. Sheillah abused Tayo and he abused her back, so that means he doesn’t respect women, really? Idris that played with the emotions of women, he respects women, right? Those bringing up the gender equality bs annoys me. I advise you to insult a man okay? And when you get schooled, bring up gender equality. Because you’re a man or woman doesn’t mean you automatically get respect. It is earned!
      “Tayo has an attitude problem”? Out of ALL the housemates, really?! Smh.

    Uti should eat that heart out. I don’t care if twas acting but I didn’t like how he antagonised tayo. Was he threatened or something?
    Anyways, im sooooooo elated for tayo. Been shouting since yday. Those housemates shouldn’t come here please. This is not a BBA refugee sanctuary

    • ConcernedNigerian

      December 10, 2014 at 9:50 pm

      @benny chop knuckle joor. I taught I was the only one that noticed that Uti seemed so threatened by Tayo’s personality hence he hid his antagonism under acting as ExHM. It’s unfortunate a lot of people didn’t spot his bs. All he could do afterwards was to go on twitter and be calling out 9ja to embrace peace and stop abusing JJ and the rest. He was forming so much of a peace maker, but I called him out and told him to stop taking the spotlight from Tayo.
      If everyone followed the show well, they would agree with me that Tayo was doing so well until Uti came 4 his prank. Suddenly the music changed, some 9ja folks started putting buts in Tayo’s personality. That is what Uti did.
      Search your heart Uti, search it well cos deep down in it, you don’t fully support Tayo.

    • benny

      December 11, 2014 at 2:52 am

      To be very honest, I’m done with Uti. After watching what he did, I understood how petty and threatened he was. There is nothing to Uti; empty vessel. The struggle is real. No other fake housemate antagonised their own like Uti. “Crabs in a bucket” mentality. Big shame.
      The thing is, Tayo doesn’t have to try to be famous. He doesn’t have to struggle and rush to events and take samurai pictures in extra funny looking clothes to get noticed. Tayo WILL BE GREAT.

    • Tayogin

      December 13, 2014 at 2:28 pm

      U’re not the only one that saw it. Uti is a devious hypocrite, hiding under the cover of peace keeping. He never gave Tayo any clue, instead he kept pushing his buttons and even told Africa that Tayo doesn’t know when to stop. Uti should take his fake peace preaching to boko haram

    • Tombra

      December 11, 2014 at 10:23 am

      Benny, God bless you!

      They shouldn’t come here at all.
      You hate Nigeria yet you’re begging Dbanj to sign you. (JJ), you hate Nigerians yet you’re hustling to get into their movie industry (Sheillah). And because Vimbia managed to get into Nigeria she’s getting cosy with Sheillah on twitter trying to hook her up. Vimbia better respect yourself and don’t vex Nigerians. Is it by force for EVERYONE to be in Nollywood? If you want to connect her you best connect her in your own country, Zimbabwe. The fact that Uti is doing peacemaker annoys the hell out of me cause it’s not genuine at all. Stop tweeting about BBA, this isn’t your season, let Tayo shine!

      He was given the iPhone. Which money? He didn’t win BBA and he’s been given no money. Before you become judgmental, please open your eyes, and read.

    Im still excited that he didnt win. Nigerians think its their entitlement.Happy for years!!!1

      December 11, 2014 at 9:22 am

      i wonder the kinda level of devil that lives in you ….. how can u be happy that someone didnt win? omG …………….. if tayo was ur brother will u still say that/ what has happened to the bible that says love one another as thyself? yes its a game and he didnt win but not for u to say u re HAPPY……. common flash ur head flash, change ur thinking

    • Tombra

      December 11, 2014 at 10:06 am

      Your comment is really incomprehensible.
      Nigerians do not think it’s they’re entitlement. If you’re not Nigerian, you cannot come up with that illogical conclusion. You guys must be so obsessed and envious of Nigeria, the hate is real. I hate whenever people make that ridiculous comment you just made cause it makes no sense. Just because Nigeria has won 4 times doesn’t mean Nigerians think it’s their entitlement. You people need to realise it’s about the housemate, NOT the country. You need to be analytical when making comments.

      Well done Tayo, we’re so very proud of you! Your haters are going to be very disappointed cause this is just the beginning. God bless you tremendously. Amen!

    What Flash means by “…. their entitlement …” is that unlike other countries who had housemates in BBA hotshots, Nigeria is all up in arms because Tayo didn’t win, yet there had to be only one winner.

    • Adwoa

      December 11, 2014 at 2:42 pm

      I’m not Nigerian and I don’t think that’s why Nigerians are pissed. It’s because it was rigged! Why weren’t Nigerians pissed last year when Melvin didn’t win? They were sad not pissed. In this case, are you trying to tell me Tayo only got two votes? ROA went to Macky2 really? Even people from ROA were ranting because they didn’t vote Macky2. They’re many times a Nigerian housemate didn’t win and Nigerians weren’t pissed. Even here in Ghana, people were routing for Mam’Bea but they knew she won’t win. We’re also shocked it wasn’t Tayo.

    Uti is a disgrace by acting against Tayo, when Feza enter bba house as fake hsm she really help Idris, as u can see Idris dressing changed nd his game even upgraded but Uti distabilise Tayo all thru. anyway whatever d case may be it is all blessing in disguise for my boy AKT,

    • lisa

      December 11, 2014 at 2:08 pm

      Yes tocs Uti is a big disgrace a very jealous human being,bad belle of life but he wud see tayo soaring high even uti won’t be up to tayos feet.he antagonized tayo thruout his stay in dat house as a fake housemate n he Never really campaigned for him..he was just pretending doing shallow campaign I followed d whole situation

    • Berry

      December 15, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      Nigerians, cud really b funny sometimes d way we rubbish our own. Come 2 tink of it how did uti rattle Tayo? Did Vimbai not unsettle Butterfly? While we are busy blaming or castigating Uti, pls letz b mindful of d fact that they were particularly briefed to do wot they did. I am very sure if a lot of us were in Uti’s shoes we wud not ve acted otherwise as doing so wud have given away d prank.
      The common enemy of Tayo and Nigerians is Biggie who deliberately skewed tinz in favour of Idris, and who despite d apparent hate on Tayo and Nigeria never cautioned d other HMs to desist from such.
      our agitation at this point shd b that for Nigeria to partake in BBA henceforth, there shd b equal number of countries 4rm each region, that way dis regionalism nonesense wud stop.

    So now it is Uti’s fault that Tayo didnt win? na wa for Nigerians oh…Tayo didnt win because he just didnt…Dont be sore loosers Nigerians…..Tayo will still be great regardless of whether he won or not.

    • S

      December 11, 2014 at 4:20 pm

      I don’t think they’re saying it’s his fault he didn’t win. Definitely it isn’t. Tayo didn’t win, certainly not because of Uti. I think they’re just saying Uti shouldn’t play peacemaker on twitter cause if you ask me, he’s secretly using it to shine. When BBA was on, he was forever analysing, now it’s over and he’s still analysing and faking peacemaker. Do you see Karen and Kevin (past winners) go on and on about BBA? Uti was CLEARLY threatened by Tayo’s personality but of course that’s not why Tayo didn’t win and no commenter has made mention of that. I think Uti should zip it about BBA. This is BBA hotshots not BBA all starts. Simple.

    I am a Nigerian and I think it’s sad that Nigerians now believe that winning BBA is their birthright. Really, so because Tayo didn’t win, everybody is shouting blue murder. SMH! You guys should please move on… people voted Idris! Y’all should deal with it. Tayo should go and work on his attitude; that arrogant, lousy idiot.

    • lateef

      December 11, 2014 at 4:50 pm

      you are a nigerian but u shouldnt because it a mistake. tayo was arrogant and lousy at least he was being his self. the rest of the housemate were fake. so next time watch bba properly before saying rubbish

    • Jay

      December 11, 2014 at 6:00 pm

      You are the lousy idiot. That is all.
      I’m Nigerian but I wasn’t said Tayo didn’t win and I don’t think All Nigerians were sad he didn’t win. I also don’t think BBA is our birth right. Do you know how many Nigerians are in Nigeria? How can you come up with that ridiculous assumption?
      If you think Tayo has to work on his attitude among all the 26 housemates that were in BBA then it’s either you didn’t really watch the show or you have a serious problem. Out of all of them, just Tayo needs to work on his attitude? Tayo is a lousy arrogant idiot? It’s funny how you guys watch people for just 63 days and can tell their personality. You indeed are the complete lousy idiot.

      December 11, 2014 at 9:25 pm

      you are not a Nigeria lara. stop that stupid act.

      You are mentally unstable for calling Tayo a lousy idiot. You should go to Pluto and find a cure for ur sickness. Go back to primary school and learn manners.

    Tee hee hee
    See Panadol and Advil over Uti and or Tayo. They’re making a living the best way they know and some of you are getting it twisted.

    Strolling along and whistling…

  21. Nelly Ib

    December 16, 2014 at 8:06 am

    When Melvin Nigerians didn’t rant. So y’all should chill and sip some #tayowater. Yes Tayo has an attitude problem but he respected his girlfriend all thru d show unlike some people. His girlfriend should be proud. I mean were just pushing his button on purpose!
