‘Winning Miss Malaika, or simply just participating has changed my outlook on life drastically. One thing I took away from the experience is that in as much as outer beauty is important, the growth that happens inwardly is what will make you stand out, and that is exactly what Miss Malaika gave to me and I believe to other ladies who ever participated’ – reigning queen, Miss Jasmine Djang.

In a little over 80 days from now a new queen takes over from Jasmine Djang. But the journey to that unveil as history would have it has never been easy.

That process saw some 32 gorgeous ladies automatically graduated to the semifinal stage of auditions which will look a little past the beauty of face and figure and test for intellect and more.

Sitting in on the search panel with the task of selecting the most beautiful among the lot on Saturday 24th July were Showbiz personality, PR Practitioner and Entrepreneur, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku with award winning actor, fashion designer, Elikem Kumordzi and Miss Sharon Coffie, Miss Malaika 2012 Queen.

Wild Cards Revealed! Maria and Pere Survive First BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Live Eviction Show

Published

on

Ebuka took on the first BBNaija Shine Ya Eye live eviction show Sunday night, but there were no goodbyes – just surprises!

After the ladies and gentlemen of the house settled in last Sunday, Biggie threw in the second twist of the season. He told the housemates that two from among them were Wild Cards and they had a week to figure them out. If they successfully did this, the two Wild Card housemates would be evicted immediately. Failure to do so meant they get to remain in the competition and battle it out for the grand prize.

The housemates investigated, questioned, and tried hard to figure out who they were all week long. The viewers were not left out in the guessing game until Thursday when Biggie revealed that Maria and Pere were the Wild Cards.

During their Diary Room sessions Sunday afternoon, majority of the housemates put forward Liquorose and Jaypaul as their prime suspects, to the amusement of viewers. However, the cat was let out of the bag when Ebuka asked the Wild Cards – Maria and Pere – to reveal themselves. This left the housemates surprised but impressed at how well they concealed their identities.

The game has now shifted gears as both Maria and Pere are officially in the game to win. Ebuka revealed that both of them will have exclusive nomination powers on Monday night, when the housemates exercise their nomination rights for the first time this season. Nominations will begin after the Head of House game scheduled for 6pm.

Abeg is the headline sponsor of Big Brother Naija season 6, and the associate sponsor is Patricia.
