- BBNaija's Maria is feeling sad about nominating Beatrice, Yerins, Whitemoney, and Jaypaul, for possible eviction
- The Shine Ya Eyes housemate broke down in tears while nominating fellow contestants for the show’s first eviction
- A heartbroken Maria explained to Big Brother that she didn’t know what she was thinking at the time
Maria has expressed how hurtful she felt when asked to nominate four of her colleagues in the house for eviction on Monday.
Having nominated Beatrice, Yerins, Whitemoney, and Jaypaul, the 29-year-old housemate said considering her relationship with her nominees and their personalities, they didn’t deserve to be nominated for evictions.
Maria told Biggie on Tuesday, August 3, during her diary session:
“I was really hurt yesterday about everyone I nominated because I was put in a tough position. But I’ve come to realise that this is a game, and it might again happen in the future. I wasn’t just ready for it. I was just shocked yesterday and that was why I was hurt.”

Maria said although only Yerins and Beatrice were on her mind to be nominated for the eviction, she ended up nominating four persons, including Whitemoney, which made her feel very bad.
When asked how the nominations will affect her relationship with other housemates, Maria said she’s unbothered, adding that “we as human beings lie, we tell the truth.”
Maria, who escaped eviction last week, however, noted that her relationship with Whitemoney is still intact in spite of her choice to nominate him for eviction.
