BBNaija 2020: Nengi clears air on ‘love triangle’ with Prince, Ozo

Big Brother Naija, BBNaija housemate, Nengi has said there is no love triangle with Prince and Ozo following Tolanibaj’s eviction.

Nengi said this after Ozo approached her on Tuesday night saying he caught her looking at Prince in a funny way.

He also revealed that Prince has been visiting Nengi’s room frequently.

Ozo asked for clarification, saying he does not want to be in any triangle again in the house.

However, Nengi dismissed the speculation, adding that his argument is baseless.

According to her, there’s no triangle with Prince and that Ozo is just overreacting and exaggerating everything.

Nengi said: “This your argument is baseless. I’m not in any love triangle with Prince.
“You are just seeing things and exaggerating. It’s not because of me he comes to the room.
“I’m in my lane and don’t have anything or triangle. If I wanted to be close to him I would be because I called the shot.

“I like him as a person but can’t be close to him.”

BBNaija 2020: What Erica was caught doing with Laycon after break-up with Kiddwaya [VIDEO]

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemates, Erica and Laycon were caught on camera last night hugging passionately and sharing kisses.

This happened just a few hours after Kiddwaya and Erica, long term partners in the house, broke up.

Laycon was heard telling Erica, “I’m sorry.”

When she asked why he was sorry, he replied, “I don’t know but I’m sorry,” as they continued holding each other tightly.

Laycon had always expressed his love for Erica and sees himself as the best man for her.

People thought he had given up what was seen as a wild goose chase before now, but it seems hopes have returned following yesterday’s development.

Recall that Erica had recently berated Laycon for gossiping about her with the others.

This was after Laycon was pained by Erica’s rejection as the Abia-born female housemate picked Kiddwaya over him.

BBNaija 2020: Laycon caught massaging Dorathy’s buttocks on national TV

Advertisements

Last night in the Big Brother Naija lockdown house, Laycon was captured on camera grabbing and massaging Dorathy’s buttocks.

Housemates always engage in different ‘truth or dare’ games to keep the Lockdown house lively.

During the games, housemates take turns to pick papers containing instructions which they carry out without objections.

Laycon was instructed to pick a girl among the seven ladies left in the house and ‘press her bum bum for 30 seconds’.
He snubbed Erica, his love interest, opted for Dorathy and was seen massaging her buttocks.

The ‘truth or dare’ game, which was introduced to the Lockdown house by Trickytee is seen by many as one of the ills of the reality show. This is because during this game, housemates engage in different sexual activities.

Advertisements

Big brother Naija Lockdown, BBNaija, female housemate, Vee, has said that she bathed once in four days when biggie took away the privilege of housemates using hot water to bathe in the reality show.

Vee said this during her diary session with Biggie on Friday.

Recall that Biggie had punished the housemates after they broke house rules countless times and during male housemate Kiddwaya’s reign as the Head Of House (HOH).

According to Vee, the absence of hot water was one bad experience in the house as it made it hard for some housemates including herself to take their bath regularly.

She said: “I only bathed once in four days when there was no hot water.”

BBNaija 2020: Terry Waya speaks on buying votes for Kiddwaya to win N85m

Nigerian Billionaire, Terry Waya has reacted to reports of buying votes from the organisers of BBNaija to make his son, Kiddwaya emerge winner of the Lockdown edition.

Terry Waya in an Instagram live session with Dele Momodu on Thursday night denied that he bought votes to secure his son to the finals.

“The support from Nigerians to Kiddwaya as a person and judging him based on his character not my wealth is impressive.

“I’ve never been impressed with Nigerians with the way they treated and judged my son on his actions.

“It is because of them that Kiddwaya is there. I heard rumors that I bought votes to make him win but I’ve never done that. All the votes for Kiddwaya are from Nigerians who love him. I thank those who use their DSTv to vote for him and spend resources to keep him there.”

Terry Waya reiterated that If Kiddwaya wins BBnaija, he would use part of that money to help rape victims, adding that he is interested in the fate of people in IDP camps and youth empowerment.

“I really want him to win it if it is possible so he can utilise the resources,” the Billionaire added.

BBNaija 2020: Nengi is pissed when I’m doing well – Prince

Advertisements

Big Brother Naija lockdown housemate, Prince, has suggested that fellow housemate, Nengi, is always pissed when he is doing well.

Prince had strong feelings for Nengi but never had the opportunity to have a relationship with her in the house.

He said the Bayelsa-born housemate has been giving him a very cold attitude for a reason he cannot tell.

Speaking with Wathoni last night, Prince said he will have to confront Nengi later in the show or outside the house to know what the problem is.

He said, “Maybe probably at one point I might ask Nengi what’s up with her attitude towards me but now I don’t feel the need to .

“Probably when we leave the house. Because I feel like everything will be different by the time we leave the house.”

When Wathoni suggested that maybe Nengi doesn’t want to come close to him to avoid her supposed boyfriend, Ozo getting pissed, or that Prince had done something she didn’t like, Prince maintained that he did nothing wrong.

10 most surprising high-fibre foods

Skipping out on a daily dose of fibre often leads to constipation, which can make going to the bathroom painful and uncomfortable.

Fibre is something the body needs but never actually digests.

Types of Fibre

It comes in two varieties, soluble and insoluble, and most plant-based foods contain a mixture of the two.

Soluble fibre turns to gel in the stomach and slows digestion, which helps lower cholesterol and blood glucose. Insoluble fibre, on the other hand, remains unchanged all the way to the colon, making waste heavier and softer. Regardless of these differences, neither type of fibre is ever absorbed into the body.

Eating too little fibre can make it tough to control blood sugar and appetite because fibre regulates the speed of digestion and contributes to satiety.

Below are most surprising high-fibre foods.

1. Split Peas

Advertisements

A staple in Indian cooking, split peas forms a terrific, protein-rich base for soups, stews, and dhals. It’s healthy, satisfying, and super filling.

2. Lentils

Advertisements

Lentils take less time to cook and are more versatile than many other legumes. Take advantage of their slightly meatier taste and turn them into a juicy meal.

3. Black Beans

Advertisements

Fibre: 15 grams per cup, cooked.

Black bean is also loaded with complex carbs and protein and is a perfect post-workout meal.

4. Avocados

Advertisements

Few foods deserve the title of “superfood” more than the avocado, which is jam-packed with vitamins, fibre, and healthy fats.

Try mixing it in your salads to add some creamy goodness.

5. Barley

Advertisements

Barley is a chewy, nutritious grain that contains more fibre than oatmeal and brown rice. It can be used in soup, salad, or tea.

6. Apples

Advertisements

Add fibre to the list of ways that an apple a day could keep the doctor away. This fruit is an inexpensive and easily available source of fibre.

7. Carrots

Advertisements

Along with being a great source of betacarotene, carrots are a source of fibre, a 100-gram serving of raw baby carrots has 2.9 grams of fibre, and a half cup of cooked carrots has 2.3 grams.

8. Legumes

Many global cuisines are rich in legumes, and for good reason: they’re a great fibre source and also provide a vegetarian source of protein.

For example, quick-cooking red lentils have 4 grams of fibre per half-cup serving, before cooking.

9. Spinach

Throw a handful of spinach in your smoothies, food or snacks to get some extra fibre, along with an iron boost.

10. Oats

Oats, a popular pantry staple, are a cheap and simple way to boost your fibre intake.

Whether you choose the quick-cooking variety, rolled oats or steel cut, they make a satisfying breakfast, they’re economical and are 100 percent whole grain.
