Kayvee, one of the new housemates on the Big Brother Naija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ season, has withdrawn from the Big Brother Naija show due to health issues.
This was confirmed in a statement issued by MultiChoice Nigeria, organisers of the show, on Monday.
According to the organisers, the evicted housemate will be taken for a medical check-up.
“Kayvee, one of the housemates in the Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye Season, has been exited from the House on medical grounds.
“Prior to this, he had a consultation with Big Brother and the on-site medical team, where it was decided that he had to leave the house for a more thorough medical investigation.
“MultiChoice and the show producers, are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all housemates in the Big Brother house at all times,” the statement read.
Pere, the Head of House, subsequently gathered all the housemates on Monday to deliver the information to his fellow housemates after being briefed by Big Brother.
”Housemates, Kayvee won’t be joining us any longer on the show due to his health, he is seeking medical attention and won’t be coming back on the show. Please, endeavour to help pack his bags.
Earlier on Sunday and Monday, some housemates noticed that Kayvee’s behaviour had changed as he was keeping to himself and became less involved in some activities and it got some of them worried.
This got Whitemoney and Saskay advising him to seek Big Brother’s consent to see a medical professional for psychiatric evaluation to sort out his issues.
However, Kayvee’s social media account handler debunked all claims of Kayvee having a mental challenge and rather stated that Kayvee is a gentle Jack and does not have mental issues.
According to the handler, Kayvee was just feeling unwelcomed by his fellow housemates and as a result, he withdrew back into his inner shell as a well of respecting himself.
