After ninety-nine exciting days of Nigeria's biggest and most popular reality TV show, it was time to draw the curtains as the finale was held in grand style on Sunday, October 6, 2019.
The venue of the finale of the reality show was packed with a multitude of people who all wanted to be part of the show. Despite the rains, it didn't deter fans of the reality show sticking around to get access to the venue.
The winner of the show, Mercy, was crowned at about 9:30 PM later that evening with fans and supporters cheering the first woman to win the reality show. Here are some of the major things that happened during the live show that you all should know.
1. The overflowing crowd
It was obvious that the finale of BBNaija wasn't going to be like every other live eviction show. As fans of the show turned up in their numbers to support their favourite housemates. From the entrance of the venue of the show to the doorsteps, it took the ever-ready security details to keep everyone in line.
Despite the rains, it didn't stop the fans from waiting in those not so nice queue. However, after a long time of waiting, fans were able to get into the venue of the show to experience the electrifying and scintillating grand finale of the biggest reality TV show in Nigeria.
2. Between DJ Obi and DJ Snatch
Like we've always said, one of the peaks of being at the live eviction show is that you get to experience an overflow of the Saturday night party of the Big Brother house. As expected, DJ Obi and DJ Snatch were on hand to party all night long with the audience at the finale of the reality TV show.
Wondering how two DJs were able to work in hand to give a beautiful performance all night? Well...let's just say DJ Obi had an upper hand all evening but they both carried everyone along all evening. Not one of the best live show performances, but both DJs made the finale night a memorable one.
3. Our ad breaks
For everyone who has attended the live eviction shows of BBNaija this season, one thing they have become accustomed to is the ad breaks and its turn-ups. The ad breaks are usually the time where we get to see the DJs show us what they have in on their playlist and lit up the atmosphere.
The finale wasn't any different as we got to see the audience party hard during the ad breaks. Ebuka was on hand to spice it up as he too partied with the crowd...this year's BBNaija live eviction shows will remain in the hearts of many as it was more like a family outing and get together.
4. All the former housemates turned up
Surprisingly or unsurprisingly all the former housemates of this year's season of BBNaija turned up at the finale of the show. Looking all dapper and smashing hot in their attires, these guys were the toast of the night as fans cheered them as the walked out of the bus that conveyed them to the venue of the show.
One housemate who came alone in his convoy was Ike. The reality TV star came in Mercedes G Wagon and later joined the other housemates as they were shown their way into the venue of the finale.
5. Uncle Uzor and the other families
One spectacular thing that happened on the night of the finale was that families and loved ones of the housemates in the 'top five,' all came out to support them. They took a major spot at the venue from where they all cheered the housemates. Some came wearing branded shirts of their favourite housemates.
One person who stood out was one of Mercy's relative, Uncle Uzor. The elderly man despite his age cheered all evening and became a major highlight when Mercy recognised him from the audience. Mike's wife was among those who turned up for the finale so was Seyi's girlfriend who joined other loved ones of the 'final five' at the live finale show.
