Ebuka takes us back with some highlight of the last 70 days in the Big Brother House which gave us some nostalgic feeling.

After the highlight, Ebuka takes us into the house with Biggy having his final speech with the remaining 5 housemates and it was so touching to watch. Immediately after Big Brother’s goodbye speech, Ebuka quickly sprung into action as he announced the first housemate to be evicted on the finale and it’s no other than Vee who looked excited to have made it this far in the show as she left with head held high with gratitude.

And the moment we’ve all been waiting has finally arrived. Ebuka invited the two finalists, Laycon and Dorathy on stage.
