The BBNaija Lockdown reunion came to an exciting and emotional end on Friday as the ex-housemates gathered for one final time as a group to reminisce on events that occurred during their time in the house, as well as future happenings.
All the ex-housemates who provided an entertainment spectacle to Nigerians about 10 months ago gathered together for the reunion’s finale, except Erica.
The reunion took a different dynamic as the men all gathered for a chit-chat with the show’s anchor, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, followed by the ladies before they then all huddled together.
Ebuka kicked off the final episode by asking the male housemates why there so many relationships
Praise replied by saying people needed each housemate needed a go-to-go person that would have their back, especially during nominations.
On his part, Tochi said the house was very cold and it had an impact on him because he could not cuddle anyone as was not booed.
Vee, who happened to have found love in Biggie’s house, was the first to respond when the ladies were asked, saying the cold temperature of the house had brought her and Neo together as she slept close to him, adding that they bonded very well after that.
Ebuka then asked the ex-housemates who they thought would emerge as winner of the show.
Brighto said apart from himself, he thought Prince was going to win.
Trickytee said he thought either Prince, Ozo or Eric would have won.
Laycon, the eventual winner, stated that he expected to last in the house for only two weeks, saying that he never he would win the show until his name was called.
On the dynamics of friendship and why they chose certain people as their friends, Nengi said she was friends with the guys because they were cool with her and would not unnecessarily judge her.
Dorathy said she thought the male housemates for the season were cool.
As the show wrapped up with talks of reconciliation, the self-acclaimed “boss lady”, Ka3na, extended a hand of fellowship to Nengi.
Dorathy to her fellow ex-housemates: “Housemates don’t let the fans get to you, I love everyone… I’m sorry if I’ve made snide remarks… I’m open to friendships. Please invite me to your house.”
The ex-housemates also discussed how they handle pressure outside.
Tochi said: “It’s all about doing what you know how to do and not what the fans expect of/from you. Do you.”
Ebuka asked if the reunion was worth it.
Wathoni said the reunion was over worth it. According to her: “It feels like I’ve had the time to show the world who I really am and I have corrected the misconceptions about me.”
The Nigerian-Kenyan lady said she hopes the stereotype created by the public on her about men will end with the reunion.
The reunion programme turned out to be a show that was widely acclaimed and loved by the viewing public, according to the reactions on social media.
