Ilebaye, a BBNaija All-Stars housemate, is the show’s newest finalist. Ilebaye sobbed inconsolably after emerging victorious in the challenging Head of House game and earning a spot in the finals. Ilebaye’s victory was met with various reactions from BBNaija supporters on social media, many of whom were happy for her.
The BBNaija All Stars reality show is slowly nearing a conclusion, and the housemates are working hard to qualify for the finals. Taking on the role of Head of House during Week 9 before the season finale in Week 10 is one way to do it. The housemates met in the arena on Monday, September 18, 2023, to play their customary Head of House game, but they had no idea the assignment would be as tricky as it turned out to be.
Large blackboards with two handholds and two footholds were provided to the housemates. Reality stars were told to cling to the bars while keeping their hands and feet still. The winner would be whoever stayed in that position the longest. Many housemates left after they could no longer stand the discomfort in their arms and legs. When Angel, Pere, and Ilebaye continued to play the game, Big Brother decided to change things up. They were told to take one leg from the foothold and not put it on the board. Shortly after that, Pere dropped out, too.
Angel and Ilebaye continued to compete for the HOH. After Big Brother told them to take one hand off the bar, Soma urged Angel to hang on, but she could not keep up and eventually dropped out.
Ilebaye sobbed after learning she had won the HOH competition after Angel withdrew. Mercy wrapped her in her arms and offered support as Cross came to carry her. Like the other Heads of House, Ilebaye had to pick four of her fellow cast members to share her HOH victory with. She decided to hang out with Angel, Mercy, CeeC, and Venita for the week. Ilebaye’s HOH victory was vital since it advanced her to the competition’s finals. A lot was said about it by numerous online users. She is now officially a finalist in the competition, joining Mercy Eke and Cross.
