It’s been six weeks in the 2020 Big Brother Naija Lockdown house and as expected, a lot has gone down. From friendships, relationships and all sorts of ‘ships to Saturday night parties, Thursday wager challenges, Monday Head of House challenges, Friday Arena Games and the many daily tasks sponsored by the various sponsors of the reality TV show.
From the initial twenty contestants who began the game, six people have been evicted leaving fourteen contestants to the race for 85Million Naira worth of prizes.
