The finalists and former housemates of Big Brother (BB) Naija 2021 ‘Shine Ya Eye,’ yesterday, visited the Rutam House Headquarters of The Guardian.

The housemates, who include Whitemoney, Emmanuel, Angel, Cross and Pere, were received by the Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief, Mr. Martins Oloja; Editor, The Guardian, Mr. Alabi Williams; Editor, The Guardian on Sunday, Mr. Kabir Garba; Editor, The Guardian on Saturday, Mr. Chuks Nwanne and other executives of The Guardian.

Hazel Oyeze Onou, popularly known as Whitemoney, who emerged as the winner of Season 6 Reality TV Show, said his success story was tied to the name given to him by the Holy Spirit before becoming one of the BBNaija housemates.

He said his name and personality were not a reflection of his reality.

Whitemoney stated that his name and personality were struggling for a balance, as he was not as rich as the name portrays, stressing that all he had in his bank accounts before going into the reality TV show was N370.

He said: “The first thing that shocked me when I came out of the House was seeing old women congratulating me and I asked “Mama you watch am and they said yes.”

Ikechukwu Sunday, also known as Cross, who spoke of his survival tactics within the 72 days in the House without eviction, said he never had a plan but relied on the Holy Spirit to instruct and guide him throughout the period.

He said he survived through prayers and carefulness with the ladies who wanted to catch cruise with his personality to their advantage.

Angel Agnes Smith, also known as Angel, told The Guardian that she had negative vibes before and during the BBNaija show, which almost got her evicted if she had succumbed.

The 21-year-old indigene of Akwa Ibom State said her backslash began before getting into the House, which she was able to navigate through to become one of the finalists.

Pere Egbi, known as Pere, speaking on his experience as Head of House (HoH), said he was misunderstood for his action, as it was not his intention to control everyone in the House because different housemates came in with different personalities.

“I really wanted to carry everyone along. I may not have done accurately perfect but I wanted to maintain what Big Brother would reiterate as regarding my position as Head of House,” he said.

Emmanuel Umoh, who emerged as a Veto Power holder in the House, said his choice for Cross was because he was quite competitive.

According to him, they shared the same optimism as they both knew how to achieve a goal.
