BBNaija Shine Ya Eye Housemates have been gifted undisclosed sums of Abeg Naira by Biggie but not with cautions and warnings.
In his character, Biggie left the value picked by each housemate in an envelope a mystery as they can only open the envelope this night.
The housemates were asked to pick a stool from the 23 stools placed in front of them.
On each stool was a sealed envelope containing different values of Abeg Naira.
Biggie clearly told the housemates that the envelopes will remain sealed until they are told otherwise.
He also informed housemates that they do have complete freedom to swap or exchange envelopes with one another at any time before the big reveal tonight.
They’ve also been instructed to guard and protect the seal on their envelopes as any accidental opening or exposure of the contents of the envelopes will result in a stern punishment.
Biggie also gave a bonus envelope that contained a substantial amount of Abeg Naira.
With the envelope came a simple task for the House. They must all decide and gift the 23rd envelope to one deserving housemate.
The decision on whom the envelope is given cannot be made by the Head of House or Deputy. It is the responsibility of all the housemates.
The housemates have been given until tonight to make the decision and they are free to devise and use any means to determine the most deserving housemate to receive the envelope.
Biggie ended his instructions saying if the bonus envelope gets missing, the whole house will be in trouble.
Just when Emmanuel was said to be thinking of voluntarily exiting the BBNaija Shine Ya Eye house, he has been presented with the bonus envelope with the highest value of Abeg Naira.
After Biggie’s instruction to all housemates to arrive at which housemate is most deserving of the 23rd bonus envelope with the highest value of Abeg Naira, the housemates were soon engaged in a heated argument on how to award the bonus.
While some insisted on a game of skill to give who was most deserving, others suggested a game of chance because that will ensure fairness. In the end, they settled for a vote and a game of chance was the outcome.
After the game of chance, Emmanuel, who already has his envelope with an undisclosed value of Abeg Naira, became lucky when he emerged as the housemate to be bestowed with the 23rd bonus envelope. With this money, Emmanuel now has spending power.
Earlier on day five, Niyi said Emmanuel is considering a voluntary exit from the house because he is bored.
Interestingly, other housemates think Emmanuel is a bit quiet and with all that’s currently happening in the Shine Ya Eye house, Emmanuel doesn’t seem to find it entertaining.
