It’s been over seven months since the season four of the Big Brother Naija reality show, which saw Mercy as the winner, ended. In fact, it’s been so long, that Big Brother Naija season five is scheduled to begin in the coming weeks.

Since the show ended in October 2019, the housemates have moved on with their individual lives. They have started businesses, received brand endorsement deals, engaged in romantic relationship, amidst other milestones. Mercy and Ike notably got their own reality TV show.

However, if you reminisce on the last Big Brother Naija show, you’d definitely agree that the moniker ‘Pepper Dem’ was apt because those housemates did not come to play.

From a certain Lambo, who came prepared to not repeat any outfit during her three-month stay in the house (she was in it to win it), to Tacha, who informed her fellow housemates that they ‘followed’ her to the house, Omashola’s lit diary sessions, the frequent catfights, the lovebirds, and so much more.
The Pepper Dem housemates stayed true to their name as they brought us lots of drama and entertainment for three solid months.

The good news is that the drama isn’t over. The Pepper Dem Housemates are back for a reunion show ahead of the new season of the Big Brother Naija show! The BBNaija Reunion show started on June 1 and will be airing every weekday all through the month of June.

Already, so much has happened in the past week.

The ex-housemates recounted their experiences auditioning for the show – Kim Oprah almost fainted at the auditions, Tacha auditioned twice, while Mercy auditioned four times!

They talked about people, who should never have made it to Biggie’s house in the first place, and mentioned names like Esther, Jackye, Diane, Thelma, Cindy, and Sir Dee. Still, Seyi thinks if the post-BBN Diane had surfaced during the show, she would have given Mercy a run for her money.

Kim Oprah and Tacha had a showdown too, but Tacha reminded everyone of her status of alpha female, and that she is not responsible if others feel insecure about her extreme confidence.

The BBNaija Pepper Dem Reunion will continue all through next week, and will see the housemates bring the drama live! Expect to see secrets revealed, old grudges reopened, and maybe someone will extend the olive branch.
