Kayvee Becomes First Housemate To Be Withdrawn From BBN
Gbolahan Ololade aka Kayvee has been withdrawn from the TV reality show due to health challenges, Pere, the outgone Head of House made the announcement Monday, August 16, 2021, to the rest of the house.
The 26-year-old, it was gathered, was showing some weird behaviour, isolated himself from other housemates.
“As you all know your fellow housemate, Kayvee has been unwell. He has consulted with his doctors and decided to withdraw from the show,” Pere in a brief.
Reacting to the development, the organizers of the show MultiChoice said Kayvee had been exited “on medical grounds”.
We gathered that he’s to undergo further medical investigation. Kayvee was one of the four additional housemates who were introduced to the house on August 8.
In the same vein, the social media handler has reacted, saying:
The KayVee we know isn’t what people are painting him to be. His friends and family will never allow him to go into the house if he had a mental health issue.
What is happening in the house is simply a reaction to him being unwelcomed. He was full of life when he got into the house, and something has triggered this phase. This has caused him to withdraw into his shell to rebuild his energy and vibe.
Please keep supporting #KayVee social media handler said: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CSoL_SkFLyQ
As if the suspense wasn’t enough, Ebuka once again shocked millions of followers of the TV reality show as he ushered in a young and sexy 23-year-old young lawyer from Kwara State.
With her killer hips, she says Nigerians and the rest of the world should look out for what any lawyer has never brought into the house, saying her positive energy and dance move will redefine the vibes in the house.
While no one can predict what happens in the weeks ahead, organisers of the show, however, introduced the 26th housemate on Sunday, August 8, 2021 to replace one of the three persons who were evicted.
Queen-Mercy Okon Atang, Queen for short, is an entrepreneur and a politician. The Akwa Ibom lady who describes herself as a nice person says she detects gossip and loves sleeping naked.
While we all look out for her philanthropic side, how the 26.year-old lady will wade off gossip in the house remains a question unanswered.
Who is the youngest housemate?
From the above short autobios, Angel is the youngest housemate in the 2021 edition of the tv reality show. She is 21 years old
Agnes Smith believes that BBN platform will help her boost her writing and cinematography career
Who is the oldest?
If Pere and Boma Akpore stands side-by-side, one might pick Boma as the oldest, but Pere is actually older than Boma by a year.
Boma who is 35-year-old is the oldest of all the housemates and one of the wildcards. He is a former US soldier but has now relocated to Nigeria as a real estate broker.

A few minutes after a new HoH emerged on Monday, August 16, 2021, it was time for eviction nomination, but it was a shocker for everyone as Biggie invited the new HoH Maria to reveal to her the new twist as highlighted below:

Week 1 Nominations (August 1, 2021): Two Wildcards And How They Survived Eviction
The 2021 edition was unique because of the introduction of wildcards. None of the housemates knew who exactly the wildcards were.
And during the week, Biggie instructed the housemates to uncover the wild cards before Sunday.
It was a tough task for housemates as they employed different elimination tactics to spot who were the wildcards.
By Thursday, July 29, 2021, Pere and Maria were revealed as wild cards by the organisers, even though the task was left for the rest of the housemates.
By Sunday, August 1, 2021, Biggie invited the housemates in the afternoon for them to reveal who they felt were the wild cards.
No one guessed right except for Whitemoney who mentioned Pere. But Jay Paul and Liquorose got the highest nominations from their fellow housemates.
And on later in the night, Ebuka left the rest of the housemates in shock as he revealed the identities of the real wild cards.
If housemates guessed right, Pere and Maria would have been evicted on Sunday, but they survived the eviction. So, there was no eviction in the first week.
