PERE, ANGEL QUALIFY FOR BBNAIJA FINALE DESPITE TWIST

Pere and Angel have qualified for the BBNaija season six finale despite the new twist introduced by Biggie, the instructive voice behind the show.

On Sunday, Biggie had sent the duo packing from the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ house alongside Nini, Queen and Saga in what was the show’s last eviction.

But Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the show host, had thereafter explained that the pair were asked to leave the house and not the reality show.

They were then sent to the “white room” where they were given a task which will decide who will return to the house — with the other person evicted.

On Monday night, Biggie, however, said that the pair will make the show’s finale for successfully executing the task titled ‘Double Jeopardy Game’.

It means the pair will now join White Money, Liquorose, Cross and Emmanuel in the race for the show’s finale billed for October 3.

The development had come amid heated backlash over Biggie’s twist, as fans of Pere argued that the initiative was unnecessary since he had more votes than Angel.

Some of the actor’s fan had threatened to boycott the show even as others took to the DSTV office at Ilupeju, Lagos to protest the controversial twist.

Federick Leonard, Nigerian actor, had also faulted the initiative, saying such could discredit the show and rob voters of their efforts.

The winner of this year’s edition of the show will go home with a grand prize of N90 million — its highest ever.

The sum of N30 million will be the cash prize while N60 million will cover travel and other gifts.
