This week Head of House Pere has ruled the BBNaija 2021 house with an iron fist.
According to Whitemoney his nemesis, Pere served with the US Army in Afghanistan for 6 good years. So, he came into the game with a strategic and military modus operandi, making allies with Maria, who acts like a secret service agent herself.
When they were exposed as the secret wildcards (I guessed that one right), it seemed to fit not just their script but on a deeper level, certain areas of their character.
Well, Pere has stepped on many toes. Let’s see how he handles life out of power when a new Head of House emerges on Monday. My guess is one of 4 things will happen:
- He turns from a supreme dictator to a feared warlord, still intimidating the generality of the house even though officially out of power. He may become the BBNaija version of Khalifa Haftar
- His loyalist or ally becomes the next Head of House and guarantees him a soft landing. (Someone like Liquorerose who is Maria’s current bestie and is very athletic could have sympathies for Pere.)
- His opponents (like those in the Whitemoney camp) grab power and cut him down to size politically
- His numerous enemies bandy around to ensure he is nominated for eviction out of the house (I for-see former bodyguard Whitemoney nominating Pere and maybe Maria)
But one thing is clear: the BBNaija housemates, Pere’s growing fanbase outside the house and businesses that need emdorcements won’t forget him (or his opponents). Truth is BBNaija, with all its faults is a veritable platform for Nigeria’s youth to launch careers.
