BBnaija 2020 Winner to be Announced Today

As the Big Brother Naija 2020 reality TV show comes to an end today September 27, 2020, here is a look into BBnaija 2020 likely winner of the grand prize of N85 million.

Our first pick is Laycon, the viewers’ obvious favourite for several reasons.

Laycon

Olamilekan Agbeleshe, popularly known as Laycon, is the most likely to win the entire thing given the millions of votes he has received since the show started about three months ago.

Laycon, 26, known for his mental alertness and intelligence has managed to build the largest fan base the show has ever witnessed with over 1.4 million on Instagram and more than 2 million across social media platforms while still in the house.

Week after week, Laycon has won one task after the other to imprint his person, commitment and rare intelligence in the hearts of millions of fans in Nigeria and Africa at large.

Millions of fans donated money and organised events to mobilise others to vote for the rapper, whose songs are now trending in Nigeria and other African nations.

Laycon, for the first time in the history of the show, has won the heart of Nigerians not by beauty or sympathy but pure intelligence and years of hard work now in the public domain.

A Laycon fan said, “Laycon, since the commencement of the contest has been a good team player who relates freely with every member of the house, as well as contributing meaningfully to every discussion and activity.

Dorathy

Dorathy, 24, is another strong contender that has managed to win the hearts of Nigerians through her calmness and personality. Dorathy has survived three evictions on her way to the grand finale while building her fan base.

Viewers have described Dorathy as the most focused and calculative of all the five housemates that made it to the finals. Also, described as fake due to the way she monitored the cameras and some of her behaviour that suggested she was not real.

Dorathy at some point was involved in a love triangle with Ozo and Nengi, and later with Wathoni and Brighto.

According to a viewer, Dorathy is one person that could pose little challenge to Laycon. The viewer said “The only person I see that will pose a little challenge to Laycon is Dorothy because many people also like her performance and how she relates with other housemates.

Nengi

Another strong housemate for the money is 22-year-old Rebecca Nengi Hampson from Bayelsa state. A model and an entrepreneur that has managed to get viewers talking the very moment she stepped into the house.

The University of Port Harcourt graduate won the first and the last Head of the House game. Nengi’s best friend in the house was Ozo, who was eventually evicted from the show.

She was involved in a love triangle with Dorathy and Ozo before Dorathy backed out to allow the two build what is now one of the most talked-about friendships formed in the house.

In the last week of the show, both Nengi and Laycon, following Ozo eviction, have continued to forge a new friendship that has got viewers talking about the two that have won the most money and tasks in the house.

Neo

Emuobonuvie Akpofure, popularly known as Neo, is the second male that made it to the finals. Neo, with his strategic relationship with Vee, has managed to evade evictions and tricked the remaining housemates not to nominate Vee for eviction in the final week while Vee did the same for him in her group.

Generally, Neo is seen as a friend to all, even though he nominated Prince and some of his closest friends for eviction. We do not see Neo as the likely winner given the social media presence, data and fan base reach. However, he is a worthy contestant with his lovely personality.

Vee

Popularly called Vee, Victoria Adeyele, is a 23-year-old London born and raised musician that now lives in Lagos. Bold, calculative and sometimes annoying as she has been in the last week just because she made it to the final.

She has managed to infuriate some of her fans with the way she treated Neo after they both made it to the final. While she is not likely to win, a friendship with Laycon and blatant disregard for others, either those still in the house or evicted, has made her one of the most talked-about in the house.

#EndSARS Protesters Gathered at Lekki Toll Gate Despite Curfew

Lagos protesters defied the 24-hour curfew imposed by the executive governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, as they gathered at Lekki Tollgate to continue their agitation.

The peaceful #EndSARS protesters sang the nation’s national anthem as they held on to their Nigerian flags proudly.

Earlier today, governor Sanwo-Olu, had imposed a 24-hour curfew across all parts of the state, saying the peaceful protest has been hijacked by criminals and unscrupulous individuals.

In a statement put out by the governor, he said “I have watched with shock how what began as a peaceful #EndSARS protest has degenerated into a monster that is threatening the well-being of our society.

“Lives and limbs have been lost as criminals and miscreants are now hiding under the umbrella of these protests to unleash mayhem on our state. As a government that is alive to its responsibility and has shown a commitment to the movement #ENDSARS, we will not watch and allow anarchy in our dear state.”

“I, therefore, hereby impose a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the State as from 4pm today, 20th October,2020. Nobody, except essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.

However, the determined Nigerian youths matched forward as they clamoured for complete police reform and a broad-based transparent and good governance for all Nigerians and not a selected few.

Sanwo-Olu Imposes 24 Hour Curfew in Lagos as Hoodlums Hijacked #EndSARS Protests

The Executive Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, imposed a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the state as peaceful #EndSARS protest turned violence amid the destruction of properties and lives.

In a statement released by the governor through his official Twitter account @jidesanwoolu, the governor said “I have watched with shock how what began as a peaceful #EndSARS protest has degenerated into a monster that is threatening the well-being of our society.

“Lives and limbs have been lost as criminals and miscreants are now hiding under the umbrella of these protests to unleash mayhem on our state. As a government that is alive to its responsibility and has shown a commitment to the movement #ENDSARS, we will not watch and allow anarchy in our dear state.”

“I, therefore, hereby impose a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the State as from 4pm today, 20th October,2020. Nobody, except essential service providers and first responders must be found on the streets.”

This was after reports of numerous attacks and destruction of properties by certain elements that the Nigerian youths claimed were sponsored by politicians to disrupt their agitation and invalidate the entire protest.

On Monday, prisoners were freed in Benin, Edo State by unknown individuals either sponsored by politicians or part of the protesters that gone rogue or with different agenda.

In Abuja, a group of thugs (sponsored or not) burnt several vehicles claimed to be parked by peaceful protesters while in Lagos, the story is not different as unscrupulous elements have been stealing and attacking people.

With a 24-hour curfew now in place in Lagos and Edo States, the youths agitating may be forced to eventually meet with the government to discuss their demands and implementation methodology.
