Here are all the top entertainment stories from the weekend and others that unraveled while you slept through Sunday night – and are still buzzing this morning.
Big Brother Naija housemate, ThinTallTony joins the list of evicted contestants
After an intense eviction show last night, 35-year-old housemate ThinTallTony was evicted from the Big Brother Naija reality TV show.
He was nominated alongside Debie-Rise, Tboss and Efe but could not garner enough votes to keep his place in the house.
In his eviction show interview with host, Ebuka, TTT revealed his decision to keep his marriage secret from the other housemates was because married men are usually treated differently in Africa, according to his own research.
He said, “Before coming to the House, I did a research on how Nigerians think and I realised people have a way they think about someone that is married“.
TTT was the most controversial male housemate in the house owing to his romance with fellow housemate, Bisola.
There are now only seven housemates left in the running for the N25million cash prize and another nomination show will hold tonight.
