Did you watch Day 48 of the Big Brother Naija Reality TV show?
If you missed it we’ve got the highlights for you!
Party Room Prep
Head of House ThinTallTony had received instructions to go into the Diary Room to retrieve a box of decoration accessories left there by Biggie. The Housemates were to use them to beautify the Party Room for the night’s party with DJ Neptune.
The Housemates seemed like they needed a bit of a break from developing their presentations and they all trooped into the Party Room citing the fact that they haven’t done any decoration for two weeks running.
The decorations took shape as the Housemates seemed to have preconceived ideas as to where they wanted to place the different ornaments. The Party Room took on a post-wedding feel as the love theme showed through. They even went as far as putting Marvis and Efe’s names as part of the décor.
As soon as they were done with the decoration, the Housemates all gathered in the garden for some chit chat before they pulled out all their musical instruments to further rehearse their musical piece for their Task Presentation later today.
Housemates ONE AFRICA task ends on a high note
The Housemates stood up and bowed gracefully in front of the judges, theatrical style.
This marked the end of their ONE AFRICA presentations, which they had been working on since yesterday afternoon.
It was just after the judges had given them their individual feedback that they all stood up and bowed in unison. It was like watching the end of an excellent theatrical performance.
Some of the feedback they gave to the Housemates included adding a little more creativity, the proper use of statistics, as well as giving clear and practical recommendations.
The Housemates were judged based on the following:
- Their overall presentation
- Their campaign names
- Their use of statistics
- Their recommendation to policy makers
- Their call to action
First up was Bassey, and while he, Marvis, Efe, Bisola, Debie-Rise and ThinTallTony used the approach of first outlining the topic then getting down to explanations, Bally and TBoss used a different approach. They used stories to paint the picture, something which the judges felt was captivating.
The judges then gave the Housemates a bit of advice for future presentations, noting the need for creativity and practicality, in terms of recommendations and call to action, for most of the Housemates.
DJ Neptune keeps them on their feet
“Oh my God, it’s DJ Neptune!”
This was one of the first reactions from the Housemates, as celebrity dj, DJ Neptune blasted his first track in the Party Room while they were still waiting in the lounge to be ushered in.
For a moment there while waiting, they seemed impatient, as the dj dropped a few hits. A few group pictures were taken and for what seemed like ages, they settled down on the couch waiting for the Party Room door to open. Bisola was even heard saying, “Biggie we’re ready now.”
Bassey and Bisola’s reaction as they entered the Party Room first was priceless!
The other Housemates trailed behind them, greeting the dj as they entered, headed straight to the fridge for drinks and hitting the dance-floor thereafter.
As soon as DJ Neptune stopped playing music, the Housemates shouted, “Biggie, ten more minutes!” clearly indicating they had a blast. He could not help but smile, as the Housemates continued chanting they wanted him to continue playing music. However, this had marked the end of the party and they were soon ushered back into the House by Biggie’s Ninjas.
Work and Play in one Day
It is said that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
The Housemates had quite a busy day, polishing up their ONE AFRICA presentations, decorating the Party Room and presenting in front of a panel of judges so it was only fitting that they ‘let their hair down’ and danced the night away.
They reluctantly moved back into the House after the party, ushered by Biggie’s Ninjas, before taking the party into the bedroom. At this point, they had changed back into more comfortable clothes and further danced to the music in pairs at first.
They then headed down to the living room and continued dancing, before sitting in the kitchen, chatting about religion and dress code, among other topics.
It’s been quite a week for the Housemates, with wedding preparations, a traditional engagement, wedding reception, games, and presentations.
