Yerins, Niyi and Beatrice

BBNaija Season 6 housemates Yerins, Niyi and Beatrice have been evicted from the ongoing reality TV show.

The sum of N90m is up for grabs by the eventual winner of the 90-day show, which is in its second week.

Yerins was the first contestant to be evicted from the reality TV show. His eviction was followed by that of Niyi and Beatrice.

Shortly after their eviction, the organisers of the show introduced four new housemates.

Before the eviction event, Yerins had told Biggie, “It’s going to be emotional for me to leave the house if evicted today.”

He added, “I keep my fingers crossed that my time here has impacted the viewers so far.”

Full name: Yerimene Abraham Saibakumo
Medical doctor Yerins describes himself as “a perfectionist, creative genius, lover of art and poetic rap music”. He sees himself as a renaissance man who isn’t confined to one profession or career.

The 27-year-old enjoys drawing, playing chess, listening to music, and making it too. He also has plans to write a medical book in the near future.

He identifies himself as a fun-loving, creative and curious person – and says his curiosity has helped him to garner expert knowledge in many fields, from modelling and digital animation to fashion design.

The high point of Yerins’ life is when he graduated from Medical University in Ukraine and finally got to see his parents for the first time in 9 years.

Niyi is a 33-year-old computer engineer from Oyo State.

Though he was once in the running to be a professional basketball player, that ambition was quickly quashed when he sustained an injury, leading to sciatica.

With a sense of Dennis Rodman about him, he still loves to play basketball and work out, and is adventurous when it comes to new food, and enjoys both eating and cooking it.

He is also an avid reader, aspiring writer and is fond of playing board games and card games – he even has a gaming license.

A husband and father, Niyi describes himself as “optimistic, spontaneous and adventurous,” while others describe him as being energetic.

Fashion model and up and coming actress Beatrice is a 28-year-old single mother of a five-year-old boy.

She is a graduate of the University of Port Harcourt where she studied marketing.

Beatrice believes that she was “created with a special clay” because she wonders how she is able to do the things she does, without having learned how to do them.

She can sing, dance, play basketball and football very well and is also a great hairstylist.

She is a talented software developer and when it comes to games, she is always the winner or the first runner up, even when she is not familiar with the game.

She wants to be in the Big Brother Naija house because she has an interesting personality which the world needs to see and also wants to positively impact those who have similar stories to hers.

A former Marlian record signee, MohBad reportedly died at the age of 27. He was best known for his hit singles Ponmo, Feel Good, and KPK (Ko Por Ke) (you will always be remembered) with Rexxie which was nominated three times for The Headies awards 2022.

Frodd and Tolanibaj

By Esther Kainebi-Daniel

Tolanibaj and Frodd became the fourth and fifth housemates to be evicted from the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality show dubbed the All Stars Season 8 on Sunday.

The duo were sent packing after failing to garner a enough vote to keep them in the house. Their evictions leave the All Stars Show with 11 housemates remaining.

Tolanibaj was the first housemate to be evicted, following a live eviction that lacked a jury panel unlike the previous evictions. She garnered attention for her “situationship” with another housemate, Neoenergy.

She opened up about getting to know him better during her time on the show, when quizzed by the show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu (Ebuka) on what changed after she had said she wasn’t attracted to Neo.

“Neo is a sweet guy. I saw some things others didn’t see in him,” she said.

Her eviction sparked a variety of reactions among viewers, with some expressing surprise at Seyi’s continued stay in the competition.

Frodd was the second housemate to be evicted during the live show night, following a close vote. The businessman and entrepreneur had been a popular figure in the house, but he ultimately fell short of the public’s vote.

Asked what he learnt from his time in the house, the newest father said: “I learned that I am stronger than I thought I was. I also learned that I am a good person, and that people appreciate me.”

His eviction, however, was met with sadness from many viewers, who had enjoyed his positive energy and sense of humor.
Meanwhile, it appears Seyi has probably been briefed by one of newly introduced housemates – Kim Oprah, Prince, Sholzy or Lucy – about how he is perceived outside the show by Nigerians. In a viral video online, the reality star told Venita he heard Nigerians are angry at him, and it means he is one of those carrying the show.

According to him, what the anger translated to was that he is one of the six, if not the first, on the list carrying this season’s show.

His recent statement sparked reactions online as many people hoped he would get kicked out soon.
