The firstborn of the “ember” months is here. Very soon, we’ll begin to spot harmattan and jingle the bells that herald Christmas but just before then, here’s what you can expect to enjoy this September…
1. BBNaija Season 6
Big Brother Naija is that show that some of us love to watch, some hate it but watch it, and, in the end, almost everyone keeps up with. The fact is this, Nigerians love drama, and the show has it in loads. Season 6 continues to unravel shocks and drama, and we’re here for it this September. More please!
2. Champions League Football Is Back!
Arguably the biggest tournament in club football, the UEFA Champions League is back this month! The fight to make it to the last 16 begins. And there’s quite a number of mouth watering clashes to look forward to, with Group A pitting Lionel Messi-led PSG against Man City in the battle for superiority. Atletico, Liverpool, Porto and Ac Milan will fight to the death in Group B. Similarly, Barca will discover what it means to play without Messi when they face Bayern, Benfica and Kiev. In conclusion, let the games begin!
3. Football Leagues Are Back!
Firstly, the fans are back! When Covid19 struck, football returned after a while but the fans were banned from the stadiums. Although it was better than watching nothing, nothing compares to watching a stadium alive, the screams, the moments we catch in the rafts, etc. Secondly, we get to watch players who have just completed transferred to new clubs begin to find their feet. The prospect of having Cristiano back in the English Premier League for one, or Messi in a terrifying PSG team. How will the LaLiga be without Messi and Ronaldo? Who will be winners across respective leagues? The race starts now!
4. Movies, Movies and more Movies!
Need we say more? Cable TV brings more movies than you can watch, allowing you binge watch old classics or catch new sitcoms and series across your screen. If you’re a movie lover, then DStv, GOtv and Startimes have you well covered to enjoy this September.
Have you heard about the Maria and Pere kiss? Have you seen the hot steaming kiss that Maria and Pere shared in the Big brother house? Wedding bells are ringing! Fam! We watch BBNaija for the drama and that is exactly what we are getting served this season.
Nigerians are already planning the wedding online as the internet is already ablaze with the news. It appears we have another potential Teddy A and BamBam situation on our hands. Biggie’s House appears to now be the hottest place to find love. We can’t just get over that kiss.
Wait a minute, what kiss? That actually didn’t happen. But the only reason you wouldn’t know that already is because you haven’t subscribed your GOtv or DStv. Just as the only reason you wouldn’t also know that no wedding is being planned online is because you are managing the small data you have and cannot even use it to view WhatsApp statuses.

This BBnaija “Shine ya eye” edition has brought with it the usual drama we have to come expect of the show, and the latest drama is from WhiteMoney and Pere. Two men, yes. Unbelievable. Firstly, we are used to this sort of drama coming from the female gender. The two housemates recently came to loggerheads when Pere confronted WhiteMoney and accused him of asking a question in the Whisper game. He was wrong though, as was later revealed.
Subsequently, Pere refused to apologise. He said he had nothing to apologise to WhiteMoney for. Matters have kept unfolding since then and these are our thoughts so far:
What We Are Thinking…
1. You Can’t Argue Against Value. Pere banned WhiteMoney from the kitchen, saying he felt it was his strategy to be indispensable to the other housemates. No one can argue with value however. While it may be WhiteMoney’s strategy in truth, it’s a strategy that works. He manages the kitchen well! And his food is good if we are to believe what the housemates say. All the housemates have strategies anyway, at least this one is edible!
2. Learn Anger Management Now. People will always do or say things to provoke you and you won’t always be able to stop them. Improper anger management will cause you to be at fault even if you were right from the beginning. Learning how to fight properly is a skill we all need to learn.
3. Communicate Properly. Those in relationships will attest to the fact that how your actions are perceived is more important than what you say you intended. Pere took off his belt when confronting WhiteMoney. What for? Now it is being said that he pinned WhiteMoney down. You don’t own monopoly of interpretation. Ensure your communication is clear and devoid of grey areas.
4. Strategies, Strategies…? On the other hand, what if Pere just played into WhiteMoney’s hands? As a result of their altercation, WhiteMoney now has more people rooting for him. Could it all just be strategy for him? Are WhiteMoney and Pere just playing the game?
In conclusion, there are so many inferences we can draw from the latest of the action coming from the BBnaija house. And that’s why you shouldn’t miss out on any whether you are watching on DSTV or GOTV! Pay your TV Subscription, Electricity bill and other bills payment you need to do with VTpass so you do not miss out on any of the unfolding drama.
A lot has happened since our last blog post in the BBNaija eviction series. If you’re looking for snippets and pecks into the latest house events, you can always find a pile on Twitter trends. Here, we prefer to wait, gather in the gist and dish it out with clear backup stories; just as you like it.
5 more housemates have left the lockdown house since our last post. Some were evicted singularly, but last night, Biggie gave us that “What?” moment with 3 housemates axed at once.
Here are the latest ex-housemate, and the story behind their eviction from BBNaija 2020:
Ahh, this one pained many. The beautiful northern lady was the fifth housemate to taste Biggie’s axe after falling into the bottom four for possible eviction.
However there was a twist. Kaisha was evicted even after statistics showed that she had more votes than Neo, Trickytee and Wathoni. Fans all over Twitter questioned the authenticity of the votes, but Biggie’s mind was already made up. The lady was out.
Cool, calm and calculated, Praise was the 6th to leave the house. The 28 years old erotic dancer got the spoon after gathering the least votes out of the four housemates up for eviction 2 weeks ago.
We really got nothing on praise. The guy has been flowing all through with other housemates. It’s only down to shortage of voting fans outside the house.
Girl said she would be “missed at Saturday night parties” and we believe her. Tolanibaj had always set the Guiness Saturday night party’s dance floor on fire with her moves and groove. Surely, she would be missed.
Tolanibaj tasted BBNaija eviction after gearing up just 3.57% of total votes from viewers last week. Much to viewers’ dismay, the romantic spark that started between her and Prince days back would never blosom.
Our Kenyan beauty followed Tolanibaj out of the house just seconds after. The shock was written all over her face! But Wathoni stated the week before that she was tired of the house and wihsed to go home. Would we say she got what she wished for?
It doesn’t seem like it. Just days back, she and Brighto began to connect romanticall. She even said she would not allow a fellow female housemate, Dorathy, to take Brighto away from her. Oh well, viewers votes said otherwise.
Believe us, this one shocked everyone. Our very own Lord Belish got evicted after summoning only 2.68% of viewers’ votes. No body actually saw this coming but Biggie has his twists. Brighto followed his bestie, Wathoni out of the house seconds after she left.
Named Lord Belish after a popular cunning character from the HBO series, Game of Thrones, Brighto made a name for himself in the house by secretly adding pepper and fire to other housemates situations. He would surely be missed!
The thrice certified engineer said he would be looking forward to adding more professional certificates to his name as he is more of a career person.
Biggie have now evicted 9 housemates, leaving 11 to contest for the grand price of N85 million. Don’t miss an action, VTpass got you covered.
The on-going Big Brother Naija (Lockdown) Season 5 has been everything but boring. From housemates‘ romance to in-house fights and interesting games and tasks. But no-one is watching the show for fights and romance alone, who does that? Housemates’ eviction is part of BBNaija sauce and as expected, hot saucehas been served.
This year, Biggie seems to be interested in serving it two-by-two. First, we had two ladies evicted from the house two weeks ago, then two guys followed suit last Sunday.
Here are the stories behind the evictions and who the ex-housemates are:
The single mom and dreamer of a fashion empire was the first to get Big Brother’s spoon. After falling behind other housemates in terms of getting only 1.28% of the viewer’s vote, she was evicted from the house.
Bad rumors have it that she had something with fellow housemate, Praise, before her eviction. Well, rumor it is, rumor it shall be.
Beautiful 23-years old dietician got served the sauce along with Ka3na in the first eviction night. With only 1.52% of votes from viewers, she got evicted from the house.
A week before that; she had a conversation with Big Brother in the Diary Room about her romantic relationship with fellow housemate, Eric. Save to say, that wasn’t enough to save her from the BBNaija eviction.
Coming third just behind his trending in-house girlfriend is Eric. The fitness instructor was nominated for eviction with only 1.37% votes. However, he was the most talked-about housemate on Twitter right after eviction with over 18,000 mentions.
Eric really made waves when he was caught on camera enjoying noddles the very night his bestie, Lilo got evicted. No joy, no joy.
Okay, this one came as a freaking surprise to many. The 28 years old rapper from Imo state followed Eric out of the house on Sunday night after Biggie served his sauce.
While Tochi was known for his calmness and long stories, viewers claimed he didn’t have enough content to pull the votes. I’m going to especially miss him, but, well; the show must go on!
Show goes on!
Next eviction night holds suspense for all of us. Who shall be next? No one knows but Biggie and we can’t afford to miss it! That is why you must subscribe your DStv or GOtv to watch the drama live. A lot is going on in the house but there is only so much we can blog about.
Don’t miss our next Eviction Follow-up. VTpass got you covered.

It’s been all hot. Real hot; since MultiChoice announced in June that the 5th season of the Big Brother Naija (bbnaija) reality TV show premieres on July 19th, 2020.
Pulses have risen, eyes raised, hands robbing together as millions of fans wonder what to expect from this year’s edition.
If you’re like us standing at the door trying to peck inside? Don’t flex a muscle! We’ve got you covered. Here are 5 things to expect from this year’s BBNaija reality TV show, Season 5:
1. Bigger Prize Money
When the show organizers claimed that this year’s prize money was going to be bigger, they weren’t joking. A whopping N85 million awaits the King or Queen who conquers the house. N85 million!
The breakdown of the grand prize for BBNaija season five includes an N30m cash prize; a two-bedroom apartment courtesy Revolution Plus; a top of the range SUV from Nigerian automaker, Innoson Motors; a trip to Dublin courtesy Guinness; home appliances courtesy Scanfrost; a trip to Dubai packaged by Travelbeta; a year’s supply of Indomie noodles, Munch it and Colgate toothpaste; a year’s supply of Pepsi, a branded chiller and a trip to watch the UEFA Champions League finale; and a brand new Oppo mobile smartphone.
By far, this is the biggest prize for a TV reality show in Africa. Imagine what you could do with all those goodies!
2. COVID-19 safety measures
The organizers mentioned earlier that they would be taking precautions to keep the housemates safe and coronavirus-free in season five of the show.
We shouldn’t be surprised to see health workers in the house performing health screenings or frequently disinfecting the house in the course of the show. This should be fun.
However, we wouldn’t see any live audience at the Sunday eviction show or external visitors like celebrities or BBNaija Ninjas in the house this year. Ouch.
Carefully tested measures have been put in place to ensure minimal contact with outsiders once the housemates enter the house.
Oh-my-godrelationships, wowfriendships, hahahafights; these are the little things that keep us glued to the show.
We have seen several relationships in previous seasons and some definitely led to marriage. Teddy A and BamBam got married last year and gave us our Big Brother Naija baby.
Yeah, we know some relationships didn’t end so well, but it’s always exciting witnessing the build-up process. Season 5 wouldn’t be any different!
4. More fun games, unpredictable twists
BBNaija without the mind twists is definitely not BBNaija. Last year, just when the housemates thought that they have seen more than enough, Big Brother brought in five more housemates in just one week. The introduction of Venita, Elozonam, Enkay, Joe, and Cindy definitely spiced things up.
What about the Ultimate Veto Power given to housemates to nominate other housemates for possible eviction?
When it comes to games, BBNaija sure got it. Perhaps Betway or Guinness Nigeria would put together one of those games that always leads to drama and exciting conversations thereafter.
It’s never down to the basics, Biggie always seems to have more tricks under his sleeves.
5. Nerve-pulling Diary sessions
Big Brother is never complete without the fun of the diary room where housemates go to pour out their hearts to Big Brother. Yikes! A lot of things are revealed in that room.
Every season, there are always housemates we refer to them as the Kings and Queens of the Diary room. We always look forward to their sessions.
Omoshola in 2019 (PepperDem) was definitely a King of the Diary room. His sessions were hilarious, exciting, and interesting to watch. He didn’t care if he was using pidgin English and English at the same time or how funny what he said could sound, he just had to say his mind.
Surely, contestants coming into the house this season understands what the diary room means and would be hoping to make the most of it. More entertainment for us! The rule is simple: “say your mind”.
Bonus – A Possible Crossdresser?
This one almost broke the internet, so we decided to make it a bonus. A Nigerian crossdresser known as Jay Boogie took to his Instagram account to ask for a social media account manager as he was going into the house.
For real? Some people affirmed this information was true, others claimed they were lies. Well, we would leave it at that and see what the house brings.

And why not? The prize money this year would be bigger than that of season 4, according to African Magic Channel Director, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu.
Coronavirus protection measures would be put in place, however, for the safety of housemates as well as the production crew. According to the Channel Director, African Magic; potential housemates along with possible replacements for any housemate who tests positive to the virus before the kickoff date, are currently been quarantined.
