One of the highlights of this season of Big Brother Naija is the beautifully designed house. From the striking pop of colours around the house to the revamped HOH lounge,the house is undoubtedly a masterpiece.
Behind the brilliant design is Olajumoke Ogunnaike, the art director and task producer of season four and the ongoing season of the reality show.
In a recent interview, Ogunnaike who owns Lefteye Signatures, an interior design outfit, opens up for the first time about working on the billion Naira project for the second year in a row.
Describe your experience working on BBNaija last season?
Without mincing words, every work comes with its own challenge. The experiences and challenges faced during other projects we've handled made us better prepared and made our work experience much easier talking about handling the pressure that came with the BBNAIJA - Pepper them project. To add to this, there was a positive energy around me from the Red Pepper team that gave me the yes, I can vibe.
What impact has the COVID-19 pandemic had on your business?
Just as it has its downsides, it also had its positive effect. When we sensed that the drop in demand for our services was solely because clients were scared of the pandemic and high on safety from the team we put on our projects, we had to up our standards and got appropriate PPE kits to keep both the team and our clients safe in their haven.
What was the most tasking/challenging design you worked on in the house this season?
The most tasking and challenging design I worked on in the house is still the garden area; the time it took to complete the beautiful mural, being at mother nature's mercy and praying several times that the rain seizes also at this period coordinating about 20 of my team members on a particular wall with me not having control over the the weather and with a slim time line counting down got to me... but I'm glad we pulled through.
What should viewers expect in terms of art design of the House?
Just as our viewers were pleasantly surprised on the season before, they should equally get ready to be awed with the ambiance and warmth the Big Brother Naija house brings this season. This time we decided to keep it simple and soft and I'm sure it will be a pleasing feed-back.
