Each Housemate came with a style unique to them. A style and personality we came to know and love. What better way to appreciate them than to recognize them for it with an award (although 60 million would have been better, this is all we got so they will have to take it). So let’s get this balling rolling.
‘The One That Got Away’ Award: Avala
She left pretty early, so she gets this award.
Foodie Of The Season: Cindy
Her coming late didn’t stop her from clinching this award. She made up for all the meals she missed in the House by constantly having something in her mouth. She even took her feeding exploits to the Arena as she made sure she had enough takeaway to carry back into the House.
Baby Girl Of The Season: Diane
No one is dragging this award from the Pepper Dem’s sweet darling. The baby faced beauty won the hearts of many and was this close to being a finalist.
‘They All Agreed She Had To Go’ Award: Ella
Ella certainly wasn’t a favourite among the Pepper Dem Gang, so it was no surprise when it was time for Nomination, a lot of them chorused her name.
Most Competitive Housemate: Elozonam
Elozonam always had the need to prove himself during every Task and competition. From the Thursday Task Presentations to the Arena Games, If Elozonam wasn’t going for first place, he was breathing down the neck of the Housemate in first place
Ludo Took Her Shine Award: Enkay
Sucks that this is what Enkay will largely be remembered for in the Pepper Dem House, but it is what it is.
Best Head Of House Award: Esther
No one took charge of the Pepper Dem Gang as the two-time HoH Esther did. With an iron hand, she ruled and willed the usually stubborn Housemates into submission.
Lover Of The Season: Frodd
No one showed so much resilience and commitment to getting his true love. From shedding tears to fighting for love, Frodd showed he wasn’t the one to give up on love
Most Intimate Housemate of The Year: Gedoni
Not much can be said about Gedoni when in the House, but should discussions about intimate moments come up, his name will be right there on top of the list. Most of the times he trended, it was because he was up to something under the sheets
Best Faux Gangsta: Ike
We really want to give him the Gangsta of the Season, but gangstas don’t cry, but if he were ever to play a gangsta, he’d do a good job.
‘Most Energetic Housemate Award: Isilomo
Isilomo was full of talent and a bundle of entertainment. Too bad she left so early.
Best Pepper Dem Gladiator: Jackye
Prior to this, she moved in silence like the ‘G’ in lasagna, but we eventually saw a different side of her late into the morning when she aggressively, yet playfully battled Mike with a pillow and a bottle of water on not just one, but two occasions. One time, Biggie had to call her to order. Who knew she had such strength. A word of advice; Never pillow fight Jackye, she has enough energy to go all night long.
HipHop Head of The House: Jeff
Most Creative Housemate: Joe
Joe shows his depth when it comes to creativity. His paintings were remarkable and even won them Tasks.
The Queen Of The Diary Session: Khafi
This was her world; the other Housemates were only allowed to play in it. Khafi owned each Diary Session that even the rest of the Housemates started a countdown until she came out.
Stunner of The Season: Kimophrah
She also left early, but that didn’t stop us from catching a glimpse of the beautiful stunner. If any of the pictures we’ve seen of KimOprah outside the House are anything to go by, she’s killing it out there too.
Best Strategist Of The Season: Mercy
She’d tell you she doesn’t have any strategy, but from her dressing to her after-party Drama and relationship with Ike, everything was strategically and meticulously done. Every move was well calculated. Not only did she oust her main competition, she went on to win the Pepper Dem Season
The Classic Man Award: Mike
Most Sensual Hands Awards: Nelson
He brought soothing pleasure to the frayed nerves of members of the Pepper Dem Gang with his magic hands.
Outstanding Achievement in The Arena Games: Omashola
Omashola showed true athletism during the Friday Night Arena Games and for
Meme Gawd Award: Seyi)
No one else came close. He served us memes for days and for that, we are grateful
The Bro Zone Award: Sir Dee
Dance Queen of The Season: Thelma
Thelma was a dancing vibe and she deserves to be the dancing Queen of this season.
The Life of The Party Award: Tuoyo
Give it up to this young stripper. He sure did know how to light up the Saturday Night Party. And just when you thought the Party was losing its steam, he strips bare and suddenly, everywhere gets hot. The Saturday Night Party really missed him after his Eviction.
The Phoenix Award: Venita
Just when it looked like the Pepper Dem Gang were running out of Pepper, guess who came in with all the Pepper? Venita! Just like the Phoenix, the Pepper in the Pepper Dem House rose with her presence.
Post Finale: Ebuka, The Spice Of The Season
Sugar, spice and a huge dose of fashion drip…these were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect Host this Season.
Asides shaking tables and putting the Housemates on the hot seat, our able Host, Ebuka rained all shades of fashion styles on us this Season. Presidential style is the only way to describe Ebuka’s fashion smartness on the BB Naija Stage and no week went by without him showing us why he’s exactly a celebrity style icon. We stan!
The Real MVPs
To be fair, we can’t dissect his fashion trends this Season without giving credits to the amazing fashion designers who made it possible like Ugo Monye, Mai Atafo, Tiva Bespoke, Deco, VansKere, DavidWej. 👌
We gathered the times he gave us the real pepper and here’s what we found. We hope you’re taking notes and you have your tailor’s number on speed dial?
Double The Dose
He launched the Season and wrapped it up in a grand way. Two outfits in one night? Yes, please!
Haha! You thought he was done? Psyche!
Did Someone Say Sweet Boys’ Association? 😍
We definitely need to find a Yoruba name for Ebuka at this rate because the number of times he graced our screens with his beautiful flowing agbada, we couldn’t help but drool. Agbada is a statement piece that has become a favourite in the Nigerian fashion sphere. In many ways, Ebuka showed us how to effortlessly slay this fashion item.
Now That’s How To Style A Suit!
If you think that a suit is only good for boring official meetings, then you’re missing out on how to stay sophisticated, stylish and daring all at the same time. Don’t believe us?
Channelling His Inner Batman (Or Sango?)
Lol, you thought we forgot the cape? 😏
For the love of mustard, Ebuka mounted the BB Naija stage in a beautiful cape and for a moment, we forgot he was on a mission to Evict one of the Housemates.
Can your favourite superhero ever? 😜
Whether it’s a new trend in the planet of fashion or trends that are yet to be born, Ebuka rocked it all this Season. Which of his fashion statements stood out for you and which of the styles do you think matches your personality?
