As a Journalist, her personality suits her journalism profession: she is talkative and open-minded. While adventurous, she is also self-aware.
The reality show is the first of its kind to house participants from two countries — South Africa and Nigeria.
It premiered on January 15 with 20 housemates. But four other housemates were later added in a twist by the organisers.
The timing of the show was a subject of intense criticisms at the beginning due to the fact that it commenced weeks to Nigeria’s general election.
Yunusa Tanko, the spokesperson for the Labour Party presidential campaign committee, (LP-PCC), had claimed the show was sponsored to distract the youths.
“We have credible information that it’s being sponsored by one of the major opposition parties to distract the Nigerian youths from changing the leadership that has placed them in perilous times laced with abject poverty,” he had said.
Below is how fans voted for the finalists:
