This week, Kiddwaya beat the other BBNaija housemates to win the Head of House title, choosing Tolanibaj to be his deputy. Both housemates automatically gain immunity from the next round of evictions as well as enjoy exclusive access to the Head of House lounge for the week.
For the first time since the start of the games, Big Brother announced that both the HoH and DHoH will get to invite one guest each into the Head of House luxury lounge per week. The guests can spend as much time as the Head of House and Deputy wants in the lounge – but of course with ‘Biggie’, there is always a twist! The guests are not allowed to spend a night in the lounge and cannot be swapped during the week after they are chosen.
The usual Monday night Head of House games have now become keenly contested by the housemates; each one of them familiar with the game and hoping for luck to be on their side.
Big Brother introduced some new obstacles this week which included having to restart the game, totally end it, or complete an odd, time wasting task like popping a balloon with a plastic fork if their totem landed on some squares. The housemates were given one minute and fifteen seconds to complete the task or end on the highest score they possibly could. Of course, Erica was not allowed to participate in the games as the incumbent Head of House.
At the end of the game, Kiddwaya won with the farthest score with Prince coming in a close second. Big Brother jokingly announced Kiddwaya’s new status by saying that ‘Robin had become Batman’, referring to Kiddwaya being Head of House after being Erica’s deputy Head of House.
Then the unimaginable happened! Big Brother revealed to Kiddwaya in the Diary Room his plan on going on vacation for the next few days. Biggie explained that his voice will be absent from the house for the duration of this vacation. He also added that Kiddwaya will be expected to keep the house organised and keep the secret of Biggie’s vacation.
Biggie going on vacation is the biggest twist and secret thus far in the competition, that has left fans wondering if Kiddwaya will be able to keep it!
