Yesterday, all everyone in the Big Brother Naija House seemed to talk about was the Liquorose and Emmanuel situationship. Having invited almost half of the Housemates into what should have been a private conversation between both of them, the pair found themselves in a situation where they had to explain their plight to everyone listening and eventually listen to everyone’s two cent on the matter.
Liquorose in particular had to do a lot of defending, as she went on a campaign to debunk any myth that she is heads over hills for Emmanuel. Sadly for her, it seemed like she wasn’t fooling anyone. All fingers seemed to point at the fact that Liquorose liked Emmanuel and he didn’t like her back, or at least not to the degree at which she liked him.
For the mere fact that she had to re-iterate her status as a hot cake to Sammie privately, and prior, to a bunch of the housemates in the room, who men are pleading to be with via her dms, and in the same breath saying she misses being on a date, seeing as she hadn’t been in a relationship since 2019, you can’t help but deduce that this is a lady who can’t understand Emmanuel’s hesitation, and who can’t come to the fact that maybe, just maybe she is developing feelings for him.
During their day long conversation, the story of when Emmanuel asked to sleep in Liquorose’s bed, and she agreed, after which he changed his mind, was made public knowledge, and with that one story alone, everyone knew that Emmanuel may just be playing a game with her. Even Maria noted that if she had agreed to a guy sleeping next to her and he didn’t show up, she would feel heartbroken.
Or it could be that Emmanuel is not very expressive, and does not truly understand the implication of his words or actions, or in this case, lack of. This may as well be the case, because since stepping into the House, Emmanuel, has been a reserved person. He barely speaks unless spoken to. You wouldn’t see catch him in a gossip circle, and during group conversations, he rarely contributes, that is unless he is asked to.
Prior to standing up Liquorose, Emmanuel had, on Sunday nominated Liqourose as the wildcard, inadvertently telling her that he didn’t trust her.
With both incidents, you would think Liquorose would call it quits, but it seems like there is no one she would rather spend time in the House with than Emmanuel. As a matter of fact, after the entire debacle, both Housemates still spent a lot of time together, with conversations and massages to end the night.
Liquorose is an incredibly beautiful lady with a strong personality, however, that personality may just be a façade, and beneath that ‘hard guy’ exterior may be a mushy, adorable hopeless romantic, who tears down her brick walls when she has found someone she truly likes. Or maybe, she is just patient, and when that patience runs out, Emmanuel chances to prove his love will be done .
For Chinedu Okafor, its all about making an impact with words, creating a profound impression on the audience with the intended narrative.
