Whitemoney has emerged as the winner of the 2021 BBNaija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ season with a #90 Million grand prize which includes a ₦30 Million cash prize.
The finale kicked off with Made Kuti performing to a large crowd who were ready to see which of their favourites will emerge as the winner. Right after Kuti’s thrilling performance, Big Brother gave the finalists a heartwarming speech.
Emmanuel who was the veto power holder became the first finalist to be evicted. After Emmanuel, Angel left in 5th place. The 21-year-old won fans over for her free-spirited nature. She says she believes she will make the #90 Million outside the house, and also has plans to venture into real estate, salon business, mental health, and spa business.
After an awesome performance from ex-BBN housemate Avala, Ebuka announced the eviction of another fan-favourite housemate Cross. Cross hoped to be the 2nd or 3rd evicted housemate, sadly, he ended up in the 4th place.
The second runner-up of the season turned out to be Pere, who is popularly called the General. The 36-year-old had an intriguing run on the show from joining as a wild card to his spot in the finals getting nearly lost to Angel. Interestingly, he declared his love for Maria.
While the fans were anticipating who the winner would be between Liquorose and Whitemoney, the winner of the last season, Laycon gave an outstanding performance. Laycon’s performance preceded performances from Lojay, Ajebo Hustlers, and the biggest announcement of the night confirming Whitemoney as the winner of the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ season.
Whitemoney won the season in a landslide victory scooping 47% of viewers’ votes. Liquorose came second place with 22.99% of viewers’ votes.
Liquorose says she never expected to get this far and the excitement from Whitemoney can be seen.
This marks the end of BBNaija ‘Shine ya eyes’ season, till it is time for the reunion where issues during and after the house would be thrashed before another season starts.
