When Big Brother brought a twist to the 2019 BBNaija reality TV show by introducing new housemates like Venita Akpofure, we got to see a new vibe in the house.
However, after six weeks, she was evicted from the BBNaija 2019 Pepper Dem house.
The beautiful ex-housemate visited Pulse studio on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, where she spoke about her exciting six weeks in the house.
Venita, Joe, Enkay, Cindy and ELozonam joined the ongoing BBNaija 2019 Pepper Dem four weeks into the show.
During her chat with Pulse, Venita expressed shock towards the reception she has been receiving since her eviction.
When asked her why she was surprised, she said, "I was surprised because when I was in the house, I was a bit paranoid, I was catching a vibe, so coming from an environment that was toxic for me and other individuals so its just like taking something out of cold water to put into hot water, its just a little bit of a shock."
Even though she has always been a celebrity, Venita says a lot has changed for her since leaving the house. One major thing she said has changed for her is her social media page. According to her, the interactions have increased making it almost impossible to reply to all her messages.
Venita also revealed during the interview that her eviction came as a surprise even though she was ready to leave the house. When asked why she thanked Ebuka during the live eviction show, she said because she was very grateful for that moment.
I had no strategy
Venita's entry into the BBNaija 2019 house got other housemates all pumped up with a whole new vibe. She instigated the first 'Truth or Dare' session where existing housemates and new ones dared and went extreme.
"It wasn't my strategy, normally when I get into a new place I like to...you know, I walked in an everyone was like, some were here, some were here and I think they were celebrating Sir Dee's birthday at that time. So I wanted to know these people, I wanted to have fun, I was just excited to meet other human beings. I just wanted us to have fun and they doubted me, they said 'some people don't like to do this' and I said we have to do this," she said noting the move wasn't a strategy.
Relationship with Frodd and Omashola
From her first minute in Biggie's house, two housemates, Frodd and Omashola were blown away by her beauty.
We asked the video vixen how the boats sailed and sank at the same time and she had this to say: "Omashola was like you are fine and I was like 'Okay.' To me it was superficial, it was surface, there was no surface to it. I immediately invalidated that. So I wasn't interested nor did I find him attractive physically. He is very aggressive and very loud. He was very everything...In his excitement, he portrayed characteristics that I did not find attractive. And Frodd is an intelligent guy, he didn't need to do much, he didn't need to do much versus Omashola. He just watched Omashola shoot a tornado up and land on his ship put a hole and start to sink and he was just amused by it. Frodd had his own slow Tiger way 'Are you okay? What do you want to eat? there is a chair here," she opened up.
Though Venita agreed to being moved by Frodd's nice behaviour when she got into the house, it didn't win her over. She also mentioned that Esther decided to resolve her differences with Frodd when she noticed that they were getting close and his reaction when she confronted him about it, made her angry.
Between me and Gedoni
Venita cleared the air about her relationship with Gedoni insisting that they were just friends. She described him as a good listener and that was what drew her attention towards him.
Sex didn't happen in mainland
One question we have asked all the evicted housemates is the rumoured sex escapades in the house. Venita just like a few other housemates, who have left the house, believes it might be happening.
"I suspect, yes...I cannot know for fact but I don't think they were having sex in the room where I was. The sex nor happen for mainland...you know we dey call our room mainland,'' she said.
One thing we know for sure is that Gedoni and Khafi, who former housemate, Thelma, revealed were having sex, weren't members of the 'Mainland Room.'
What no one would tell you about Saturday night party
The Saturday night parties have always remained one of the most-watched and interesting part of the Big Brother Naija house. And Venita didn't fail to drop a major bombshell on what really goes down during the six Saturday nights she witnessed in the house.
"In the Big Brother house, when there is loud music especially when you are in the party place, the DJ is playing and you are having a good time, and you are watching, you don't really know what we say. And I think all the viewers can attest to it, you cant hear what we say. At that point in the club, people exchange things. Last Saturday and I am going to believe that he was a bit drunk when he said it. For example, Frodd was like 'Kiss me now...are you not going to kiss me before the end of the..." so there was a lot of things even during the Munchit challenge, that was when Gedoni was like "I'm very attracted you."
"First, he asked, "what do I think by I mean by he is cute." And I was like you are cute does not mean I want something and he was like okay 'I find you very attractive" I think that was part of his game and Khafi...i don't know. There are a lot of things that people would say at certain times and you won't see," she said.
What's next for Venita?
Venita plans to do a lot with her career as an actress and as a businesswoman. She has some businesses she plans to venture into which according to her will be really big.
Venita is the fifteenth housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother Naija 'Pepper Dem' season. She spent six weeks in the house with the other housemates. She was evicted from the house on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
