"Fingers crossed. Let’s hope they still have a little credibility and integrity to do the right thing."


"What are we waiting for exactly? Voting lines open today till Friday. Obviously, @pereegbiofficial will be at a disadvantage even if he wins this game with Angel. I’m not one to get too attached or sentimental about a game but this is absolutely unfair."


"We must exercise complete decorum Guys. Please."


"Biggie had better do something. I’m a white money fan Buh this was so unfair to this guy!!"

Frederick Leonard reacts to BBNaija twist

When Ebuka announced that the Sunday night eviction will come with a twist, little did BBNaija fans know that it would be an upsetting one.

One of the numerous people who reacted to Biggie's twist was Nollywood actor, Frederick Leonard.

He questioned why the show organisers made people vote if they knew that it would not count, he also asked what will happen if Pere loses even though his votes automatically qualified him as a finalist.
