Where are all the CeCe supporters now..



Right here.
Some of us are objective, not biased, so we can admit that she went overboard even though she was provoked.
I wish her well and will continue to be objective but I think consequences for her behaviour are in order, unless of course her reactions have been exaggerated for the camera and she's not as unrestrained in real life. Miracle or Nina to win.

dear Maggie special, Alex is only trying to reciprocate the feelings to ceCe..Alex tried to break the wall between them, but strong fufu said no...
the same Strong, woman told biggie she has zero likes for Alex all because of a "dick"..
This same Alex ran errand for strong fufu on Saturday.. now on Sunday,she said Alex pops out boobs and ass to all guys,in DAT house..
like Alex, told biggie if it were to on a normal day she would have beaten poo out of DAT nwapkuda..
so the feeling is mutual.

Alex tried to play with fire and got burned. I like how Cee-C dragged her across the floor for involving her in a matter that was no concern of hers.

Nina's family didn't show up either, Collins did. It does not necessarily has to be a family member, it just has to be somebody that stirs up certain emotions inside you. A voice of reassurance sort of.

That girl is Tobi's mentor, he said it. Did you see the reaction on his face immidiately the clip played? He was sooo excited and pumped up and was screaming. He said whenever he did something bad, she is the only person that can drive him home and nobody will query him. He even said he knew his brother Femi won't do the video cos he's pathetic with things like this.

They could have at least brought Umaru, Cee-c's gateman. But no, they had to bring Dana the factory worker...
It doesn't matter at the end of the day. There must be good reason for her family choosing someone else to represent them. Her sister faithfully and painstakingly manages her IG account and spurs fans to vote; she knows she's loved and has just one week to go before she's reunited with them.

The person in his video is his role model, someone he looks up to. That is what he explained to the housemates.

Fair enough, but still no replacement for family if Cee-C is to be penalised for her family not showing up.

Your biggest undoing however, would be interacting with CeeC.
The lady has sympathisers, who sincerely think she is wrong. They however have sworn to keep voting her in. However, they punish anyone she is close to as crime for her wrong. This in my opinion is wrong, but that is what it is.

Finally keep off the CeeC's of this world, those who feel the whole world owe them something but never really bring anything to the table, and determine to succeed as ur first attempt was a total waste.



On the contrary, I think he's undoing was nominating Cee-C, to whom he was supposed to be close. Cee-C's supporters would have thrown him but for his duplicity.

Advise to Nigerians voting as regards BBNAIJA.

Don't waste your votes.

Bisola was the runner up last year, but more popular and more intellectually sound. She became an ambassador and being used for lots of campaigns and adverts, cos she's marketable.

What about Efe, Mr Logistics?



This year, Miracle might win due to fan base.

But the intellectually sound among the the 9 remaining as at today are

1. Teddy A(very creative and sound mind)
2. Rico
3. Lolu
4. Bambam(though she forms a lot, yes cos she's an actor/actress, hence not unexpected)

But trust Nigerians and sentiments
5. CeCe
6. Miracle
7. TOBI
8. ALEX
9. Nina(The most lowly intelligent)

Eloquence is not always directly proportional to intellect. Besides there are different types of intelligence.
So far none of them has exhibited the type of intelligence that appeals most to me - logical/mathemical intelligence. Your top four would be average in linguistic intelligence outside Nigeria.
This doesn't mean they aren't intelligent, it just means they haven't been put in the right situation for their type of intelligence to shine through.

She's grown on me as well. I don't watch the show, never have, but I follow this season solely because of her. However my interest was only piqued because of the irrational hatred directed at her.

One thing i have learnt with all these Cece's drama is that...People do a lot of ass the licking for Beautiful people. "Who no fine...no see life come"


Truth be told, if cece was ugly with that terrible character of hers. Nigerians would have sent her away since.

As brilliant as Angel was, people didn't like him cos he didn't have a cute face.

If it was miracle that was intelligent as Angel was...you will hear something like...#Cute Pilot with brains#Handsome Intelligent Dude# bla bla.


Cece fans are just in delusion of her beauty. You think beauty is everything ba?

A virgin who's beautiful as well, should have men at her feet but no she doesn't cos beauty drew the men at first but her character sent them away.

P.S...Don't say she's faithful bla bla. If Tobi had given her a chance you think they wouldn't have had sex?.
Na from smooching and dick grabbing e dey take start. Smh

You Cee-C haters still don't get it. It's not about beauty. I wouldn't call her stunning nor could I call her ugly.
It's the hate directed at her that's earned her empathy, mine at least, or sympathy.

As Tyrion Lannister said, some of us “have a tender spot in our hearts for cripples and bastards and broken things.”

The girl is bipolar.
When she nominated Tobi I gave up on her, her emotion precedes her sense.
Imagine if she didn't nominate Tobi and Tobi went in to nominate her again, she would have been a tough competitor for the money.
People will rally behind her and vote religiously.

The thing that irritates me the most is that she's an avid watcher, she knows everything required to win. Sheessh.

You realise that she nominated on behalf of her team, don't you?
Do you think Lolu wouldn't have wanted his pound of flesh after Tobi pulled the rug from under their feet last week?

Why not try to convince d HMs & their fans about how attractiveness is relative & how they should gladly accept being paired with Cee C & let's see how that turns out.
Guy, Cee C is d least attractive to HMs. They know she's unstable. They know that being paired wit her is a kiss of death.
I wish u luck in ur hopes for an individual who appears set in her ways & unwilling to transcend d negative aspects of her character. Worse is that many individuals supporting her continue to display warped reasoning by ascribing d criticism she's receiving not to her bad behavior but to jealousy of her beauty & a privileged background. This is very shameful.
In Cee C u hav someone who maintains that her ways are right. Unwilling to learn or change, she keeps maintaining "this is who i am".
As Big Brother noted, she appears like someone used to having things her way but he will not continue to enable her & that it's Biggie's way or d highway. I hope that her supporters will stop living in denial & call out her bad behavior. For most rational viewers this is a no-brainer. We'll keep calling her out.

My previous point on subjectivity stands.
The most well-behaved contestant does not automatically get the prize. It's the individual who connects most with the people who actually vote, not the general public nor the housemates, that wins.
There are people very much like her who can't recognise their own reflection and condemn her.
On the other hand, there are people who can relate with her or simply prefer to see good in others.

Let's assume I saw past your grammatical blunders. Most viewers including my humble self dislike Cee-C's character. I want her to go home to stop her from further embarrassing herself, after all, she is more interested in her bride price. You claim to love her but want her to stay for your own entertainment, not caring about her image. That spells selfishness!!! I think you are the one who hate Cee-C and you are obsessed with her. Embrace the truth and you will be okay.

It would do her more harm than good if she left at this stage; the public would be left with a possibly miscontrued image of her.
She needs to stay longer to redeem herself. She already appears to be on her way to achieving this.

Ur quote about people who have eyes but can not see is a perfect fit for d poo u just typed. It is called delusion.
Let's be clear, Cee C is d most unattractive HM at d moment. While she's busy shaking her waist upandan, no HM wants to come near her because they know she's bad news. No HM or fan wants his/her HM paired wit Cee C. Did u watch where her strategic partner had to run out in panic to remind her that she already had two strikes?.
Ur assertion that it's her beauty & privileged background that is responsible for people not liking her makes u look exactly like d Cee C that i see on TV - an individual unable to accept & take responsibility for bad behavior.
People like u ar enablers of bad behavior. Rather than tell Cee C d truth & maybe it just might help her, u make her live in denial.
Is she more beautiful than Lucille d Namibian BBA HM or d gorgeous, charming, classy, spell binding, angelic beauty & BBA winner Dillish Matthews who was adored for her inner & outer beauty & eventually crowned winner?.
The truth that must be revealed to Cee C is that it's neither her beauty nor privileged background that makes her unattractive to viewers & fellow Hms, it's her deplorable character. If u love her, u will tell her d truth. QED.



Attractiveness is subjective. God in his wisdom created us differently and created us to be attractive and attracted to different types of people.
Some of us can see through not just past her behaviour. She is a young girl, clearly inexperienced in dating and with men, insecure (contrary to the image she likes to project) who wears her heart on her sleeve. There are no surprises with her; you get what you see.
Age and experience will eventually teach her to be more restrained.

A name isn't automatically Igbo just because it's neither Yoruba nor Hausa. There are several ethnic groups in Nigeria other than the Big Three.

Yes, they were autonomous and even when they fought had enough reasons to end the battles quickly. Yorubas fought wars for about 100 years. Igbos did that?

Let me break it down for you:

Village UmuX with total population of 500 fights Village Umu Y with total population of 700. The winning side has maybe 100 captives maximum. The location of the battle is 12 days from the coast, battles take place once every 10 years because quite frankly both or similar villages cannot afford to battle too much.

Is this the kind of paltry return that fuelled thousands of Igbo slaves being sold across the Americas? Nope.

Too many suppositions in one post.
You forget that your claim and the ensuing debate was based on your personal epiphany rather than research. You seem to actually be on your way to believing your hypothesis.
How do you know warring Igbo tribes had reason to end battles quickly?
You are yet to show evidence of Bini influence on Igbo culture.

The report I quoted states thousands. That's almost the equivalent of millions by today's standards. I call it 'subjugation', you call it 'kidnapping'.

Is it even possible for Igbos to kidnap Igbos, move them to the coastlines to be sold to Europeans in places they do not control?

That is where access to the sea comes in. Igbos did not dislike themselves enough to sell the number of slaves that were taken out of Igboland, it was not kidnapping too. The only rational explanation, is a superior force raiding Igboland for a very long time. It wasn't the Nupe nor Yoruba, it had to be your immediate neighbours, the Bini.

1. You contradict yourself. Did you not in an earlier post allude to the fact that Igbos lived autonomously in dispersed communities? How then might a sense of oneness have been established between an Igbo community in Owerri and another in Abakiliki. Igbo groups did not identify as Igbo until fairly recently.
2. The word subjugate means to "bring under domination or control, especially by conquest.",
conquer, vanquish, defeat, crush, quell, quash, gain mastery over, gain ascendancy over, gain control of, bring under the yoke, bring to heel, bring someone to their knees, overcome, overpower, hegemonize etc.
I ask you once again to prove that Igbos were "subjugated" using the tests I mentioned earlier.
E.g. Modern English includes a mix of Anglo-saxon, Latin and Frankish words which demonstrates how the language was influenced by conquerors and settlers.
Scotland Gaelic is a secondary, rarely spoken language in Scotland due to years of English rule. Many Scottish names and place names have been replaced with English names.
I'm going too far. Africa is a prime example of the effects of subjugation with the residues of colonialism littered across the continent.

Can you point to any residues of Bini subjugation in Igbo land today?

LOL, sorry but you seem to have forgotten that Igboland is landlocked. For Igbo slaves to have made it to the coast meant they were under the controllers of the shorelines. You would have to either go through Calabar or other parts of the Nigerdelta coast under the control of the Benin Empire.

No need to get upset, it is an historical fact, the Europeans preferred to stay on the coast and Conduct their business. There was no Igbo Empire to come visit in the Hinterland.

Even Badagry got relevance for the same reason. It was the preferred port for the Oyo Empire's slave trade.

If you want to argue bring your Igbo empire. Igbo settlements at time would hardly reach a village of 500 people claiming Independence. They would battle other villages if conflicts arouse but the return in terms of selling slaves would be insignificant. The only major Empire that could organize the numbers of slaves the Europeans needed in that region effectively is the Benin Kingdom which is also closely allied to the Oyo Empire as they both claim the same source.

You intentionally digress. What does access to sea, kidnapping and slave trading have to do with domination?
Your claim that Igbos were dominated by Binis is what I addressed.
That you have to kidnap individuals rather than simply command their groups to produce a number of them for sale demonstrates a lack of dominance over them.

Never had kings? How do you know this? I think the word you are looking for is Didn't which points to certain Igbo groups not having ultimate rulers at the time they were discovered by the Brits.

Oligarchy which Igbos practiced is a more advanced form of government than monarchy - circa 800 BC vs 2000 BC, and was therefore a natural step up from kingship
Kingship was restored/ introduced by Europeans not Binis. Unless you have information pointing to Bini style kingship east of the Niger.


That Aniomas et al are Igbo is a very convenient assertion when it suits certain agendas.
Anyhow, if "today they are Igbo" as you stated, it reinforces my earlier point that Igbos influenced Bini's east-bound exiled subject to the point that their origin is debatable. What a feat.
