Big Brother Naija housemates, for some reason have a way of trending. It seems that the housemates who eventually become popular amongst fans of the show while in the house, come out to receive the sort of adulation reserved for royalties and movie stars.
It’s bewildering to witness the sort of fan love some of these housemates manage to receive. Fan bases so devout, you would think they are a cult group.
Because of this, one Big Brother housemate or the other is always somewhere at the top of Twitter trends every other day. Some ex-BBN housemates like Tacha have even gone as far as trending world wide, breaking past the barrier of trending within the country’s social media real-estate.
Today is no different, amidst all the events going on in the country, Laycon, Erica and Nengi have managed to find their names on the screens of Nigerians, and this time, its not just a meaningless trend of reiterated admiration but actual trends following a turn of events, particularly in the case of Nengi.
If you go online and see #NengiStormsBayelsa, it’s because Nengi actually stormed Bayelsa. The 22-year-old Bayelsan beauty, made her way to her home state of Bayelsa, in a grand style homecoming, where she was received by dozens of adoring fans.
She then paid a visit to the Governor of the state, governor Douye Diri, after which she was handed a political appointment. She was awarded the positions of Senior Special Assistant on Girl Child Development, and The face of Bayelsa.
After her appointment, she took to the streets of Bayelsa, to celebrate with her adoring fans.
Her appointment has seen congratulatory messages flood in, and has pushed her to a top five trend today on Twitter again. Some of her BBN colleagues that have take to social media to congratulate her include; Neo, Ozo, Laycon, Vee and a host of others.
Like the name suggest, the special assistant to the governor has the duty of assisting the office of governor in projects and responsibilities that largely require an distinct aid. In other words, responsibilities that require the services that only a few set of people have the capacity to provide.
However, the duties themselves are pretty standard as they include, running of the governor’s office in said appointees capacity, advice on policy decisions, handling of special/complex project, advice on state issues and representation of the office of the governor on appointed duties.
Nengi, much like fellow housemate Laycon, who was appointed youth ambassador of Ogun, now has an administrative office, all from an appearance on a reality TV show.
You can now imagine getting into the house too.
