Big Brother Naija’s Season 8 premiered with a bang, in typical Biggie fashion, as fans were welcomed to the familiar and beloved journey by recognizing a familiar face in a setting they were all too familiar with. Big Brother, the ultimate power behind the House, famous media personality, former #BBNaija Housemate, fashion dripper himself, and Big Brother Naija host, Ebuka, was asked a few questions before the proceedings started. “Ebuka, you’ve been here before,” Big Brother said.
Trending Nigerian musician and songwriter Kcee got the live audience up and moving with an upbeat performance that amplified the energy to start things off officially. Wande Coal’s performance as the opening show ended was spectacular. Over the past few years, the All-Stars’ appearances at Biggie’s House had an impact. In their opulent Biggieverse home, where they will each enjoy being treated like royalty, they will each have the opportunity to compete for a whopping 120 Million Naira while showcasing their talents, making new friends, and reuniting with old ones.
The host, Ebuka, took a few shots and stole a moment to catch up as the returning All-Stars walked out to a roar of enthusiastic fans. It was all about love lessons, plans, and the shared theme: nothing else but winning the money. Some housemates have been away from the #BBNaija house longer than others.
It’s game on from CeeC’s moment of revealing “face” in front of the camera as the first contestant to enter the House, to former See Gobe housemates Soma and Uriel briefly cuddling, to Neoenergy snatching up Venita as the doors to the House opened, to an awkward silence when former Level Up housemate Adekunle walked in.
Even with Mercy Eke and Whitemoney, former winners of the Pepper Dem and Shine Ya Eye competitions, making a comeback, viewers continue to speculate about the likelihood of other celebrities joining the show and competing to be the last ones standing. It’s safe to say that the All Stars’ outfits would appear on any #OOTD list, but naturally, there was a sense of unease because this is, after all, Africa’s biggest reality TV.
Beautiful images of the house’s interior have surfaced as the Big Brother Naija ‘All Stars’ edition began, and fans continued to gush over the edifice and decorations on social media. The Biggieverse is an architectural marvel with a cutting-edge style that deftly combines contemporary and traditional Nigerian elements.
The garden area’s lush vegetation contributes to the tranquil and calming atmosphere. The weekly grill and pool parties on Thursdays are ideal for housemates to let off steam after a busy week of activities. The pool is always sparkling.
A key component of Big Brother Naija is the diary room, and the All-Star’s diary room is nothing short of elegant and sophisticated. It’s a place where the competitors can open up, reveal their deepest feelings, and look for comfort when things are the hardest.
The Head of Household will have a private bedroom, a grey kitchen, a games room, a gym, and a dining area. In another area of the room, a curious parrot has been placed, prompting the question, “What does this mean?”
Indeed, The BBNaija house sets the stage for an unforgettable journey full of emotions, challenges, friendships, and growth, whether it’s the opulent interiors, the brilliant architecture, or the outdoor extravagance.
And now for the business at hand: After the Big Brother Naija All-Star edition premiered on Sunday, July 23, 2023, the housemates confirmed who would be facing a hoax “eviction.” On Monday, July 24, 2023, the housemates nominated themselves as they decided who would be up for eviction during the first week of the Big Brother Naija All-Star edition.
However, Biggie confirmed that the nomination of housemates for eviction was a hoax as no one would be evicted in the first week of the competition, despite Adekunle being confirmed as the head of the house after the conclusion of the games and Mercy Eke receiving immunity exempting her from the list of housemates that could be put up for eviction for the first week. Although no one will be eliminated this week, the nomination process went as follows:
- Neo nominated Whitemoney
- Angel nominated Seyi
- Pere nominated Princess
- Princess nominated Venita
- White money nominated Ilebaye
- Ilebaye nominated Tolanibaj
- Seyi nominated Princess
- Mercy nominated Pere
- Cross nominated Doyin

- Soma nominated Venita
- Alex nominated Ike
- Venita nominated Ilebaye
- CeeC nominated Seyi
- Uriel nominated Doyin
- Adekunle nominated Princess

Indeed, It’s Game On. Let the games begin!
