The Big Brother Naija lockdown season had its first evictions on Sunday 2nd August, 2020 with housemates, Ka3na and Lilo leaving the house.
As the tradition is with every season, the eviction show which started around 7pm took an unusual twist.
With no waste of time, the show host, Ebuka, announced the four housemates who polled the least votes; Lilo, Eric, Ka3na and Praise. He asked them to stand up, after which Big Brother asked the remaining ‘safe’ housemates to select two persons whom they would love to evict from the show.
They were called into the Diary Room one after the other, where they each told Big Brother the names of the two housemates they wanted to be evicted.
Immediately after that, Ebuka announced the first evicted housemate to be Ka3na, followed by Lilo.
After a lively Saturday night party, many housemates began to develop cold feet over their fate as the reality of the first eviction started to set in.
When asked on the stage how she felt about her eviction, Ka3na said: “I’m having mixed feelings but I’m glad that I made it this far.”
According to her, the main purpose of being on the show was to sell her name and gain visibility for her brand. She said she could only be grateful for the opportunity.
On the other hand, Lilo, who excited viewers with her ‘sooner than expected’ relationship with fellow housemate, Eric, said she was also surprised that she had been evicted but when asked what she felt was the reason behind her eviction, she said she had no idea, as she was only being herself throughout her time on the show.
After the show, she said she would focus more on her business and she would be pursuing a Master’s degree.
Of the 18 remaining housemates, Lucy who won the Head of House (HoH) position and her deputy, Prince, were immune to nominations and subsequently, the week’s evictions.
This week, another pair would earn immunity following the HoH games, as the housemates continue their fight to win the grand prize of N85 million.
