Tobi earns Two Strikes
After having witnessed a disqualification and the awarding of multiple strikes, Tobi should have known better than to bend any more rules. After all, what Biggie says, goes. From the very beginning, the Housemates displayed a total disregard for Biggie‘s rules. This could be attributed to the fact there were too many egos to around, with each Housemate holding firmly to their own ambitions and almost completely unwilling to accommodate the competition. As a result, Biggie became stringently firm and rid the House of any room for negotiation when it came to his rules.
The Joy That Was Short Lived
Tobi’s joy for being allowed to have a diary session after having been excluded due of not heeding to Biggie’s diary room summon was short lived when a clip of him talking to Lolu and Anto was played back for the entire House to see. Although the conversation was so vague that it was open for interpretation, especially because Anto and Lolu threw the conspiracy theory out the window; it was crystal clear that there was more to it than met the eye. However, Biggie did sum it up as a conspiracy and that plus the ignored summon equated to a strike, bringing Tobi that much closer to the ‘Exit Only‘ doors. With him now sitting on two strikes, the season’s strike tally had been brought to a total of 7.
Tobi’s HoH veteran status should have been enough to have him uphold the rules governing the Housemates’ co-existence and their general behavior towards the man of the House, but it seems like his experience has proven futile because we went right ahead and broke the rules that of course earned him a big fat strike.
It has become quite unclear what shape or form his game will take going forward as this might have tarnished his ‘friendly’ image in the House and could potentially throw him onto the Housemates’ blacklist.; not to mention his on again off again ‘situationship’ with Cee-C who clearly feels betrayed by him. It the stakes were high before, consider them twice as high now.
Anto’s Journey Comes to an End
Even though every one of the 20 Housemates knew that the grand price could only be won by one person, they opened themselves up for the trials and tribulations the game promised; hoping that they could make the most of the experience and possibly come out of the House as notable brands. After 8 long weeks of drama coated isolation, Anto managed to do just that; become a brand.
Stronger Than Your Average
While most of the Housemates seemed to be wavering between strategies and found it hard to create firm foundations, Anto oozed a calm type of confidence; one that didn’t impose nor needed affirmation. When Biggie introduced the pairing dynamics, she was arguably the most receptive of Housemates and took each day as it came. At the beginning, she seemed not to have much to say in the diary room; answering only what she’d been asked and only speaking when spoken to, we could have sworn she’d adopted the ‘forgotten mate’ strategy; but as the weeks slowly turned into months, Anto slowly cracked her shell open and stepped out, bearing it all and censoring nothing.
Romantic Tic Tac Toe
As half the constituent of Loto, Anto’s footprint in the game couldn’t be ignored. Lolu quickly took to liking her and at some point, she gladly gave him the green light while flashing a red one at K.Brule and his advances. During her conversation with Ebuka, she revealed that she had eyed Tobi but had to bring her guard back up when she realized that Cee-C had snatched him off the shelf. Moreover, during her pairing with Miracle, the two displayed a friendship far beyond the norm and had a couple of people questioning it; it even got Nina a little uneasy.
No, It’s Not Over
As mentioned before, If Anto was a tree, she’d defy nature by bearing different fruit on the same branch. The kind that can uproot and reposition at will. She was armed with a stern personality, had her ability to keep her emotions in check as a breastplate and her double edged dedication as a weapon, call it a recipe to longevity. Her BBNaija journey might have come to an end, but her life’s journey has only just begun. Kudos to Anto for 8 long weeks of persistence.
