John Ugbe, MD/CEO Multichoice has explained why Big Brother Naija 2018 housemate, Cee-C wasn’t disqualified from the show.
Speaking at a press briefing held in honour of the BBNaija 2018 finalists, Ugbe said Cee-c and others made it to the final stage because they adhered to the rules of the house.
Many had expected that Cee-c, who was adjudged to be the most controversial housemate on the show disqualified due to her attitude; but she surprisingly made it to the final stage.From injuring Lolu, fighting Tobi, destroying her Payporte party dress, Cee-c was christened ‘Margaret Thatcher’ of the BBNaija house by viewers.
Ugbe also faulted the earlier claim in some quarters that some housemates were placed into the house by the sponsors to win the show. He said:
“Those questions about her (Cee-c) disqualification would always come. I think when the show started; there was a perception that some housemates were placed into the house by the sponsors to win the show. Then it switched by the next week. “At every point, the housemates were aware of the rules of being in the house, and those were adhered to throughout.At the end of the day guys, it’s a game, and the rules were adhered to. Throughout the time the housemates were in the house, there was fairness.At a time we heard about the votes, and then, week after week, we published those percentages and people saw the reality behind the numbers.Often times when people complain and we ask them: “Did you vote?” They tell you – “I actually forgot to vote.”
Cee-c, speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria at the Laurent-Perrier night by Play Network Nigeria, in Abuja said she will be going to a film school to study script writing.
“I want to write scripts that would portray strong characters and depict a society where different people who share different opinions are appreciated.Many people are not confident enough to express their values and opinions. My next priority this year is to go to a film school because I am aspiring to also produce. I will definitely go to a film school because I want to become a producer; I want to tell stories; that is my plan for this year”.
The ex-housemate, who also spoke on her love for artificial eyelashes, said she does not think she can do without it; however, she expressed the desire to also do without them.
“I have been fixing lashes for about five years now consistently, I am used to it; I don’t think I can do without it but I must try to do without it”.I think it is because of my poor eyesight, they kind of help me out when I squint.”
