BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemates Cross and Niyi have exchanged heated arguments over who took the largest quantity of bread.

On Thursday morning, Cross approached Niyi about the small quantity of bread that remained without him taking his share.

According to Cross, he was told by someone that Niyi was the last to take from the loaf of bread.

The issue escalated when Niyi allegedly said it is a ‘first come, first serve’ mood with the bread.

Cross wouldn’t hear any of it as the statement as he walked away to the kitchen, explaining the matter to Whitemoney and Sammie.

Niyi followed Cross to the kitchen telling him to stop putting words in his mouth because he never said what Cross thought he said.

Apparently, Niyi told Cross that he can’t quantify what he took because other people took before him, so he doesn’t understand why Cross came at him like he was the only one that took out of the bread.

The matter ended with both of them walking away from each other.

BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemate Pere has discussed with Emmanuel his ‘situationship’ with Liquorose.

During their discussion, Emmanuel affirmed that he likes Liquorose but he feels she’s still annoyed with him about the wildcard nomination.

Pere told Emmanuel that he doesn’t think she is annoyed and even if she is, she would have stopped talking to him.

He also said that he doesn’t think Emmanuel likes Liquorose but Liquorose is attracted to Emmanuel.

Pere said he thinks Emmanuel likes Maria and he wants him to be honest about it.

However, Emmanuel said he’s not in any way attracted to Maria and he only likes her as a friend.

He says he’s more focused on Liquorose.

Liquorose had complained that Emmanuel is not an expressive person, as he says one thing but does something contrary.

She went further to say she doesn’t want it to look like she’s forcing a relationship with Emmanuel.

Liquorose also said her feelings were being betrayed by Emmanuel and she can’t trust him after nominating her as the wildcard.

Emmanuel apologised for his behaviour and relayed his sentiments about the damage he’s done to their shared sense of mutual trust.

He left the conversation on a positive note, promising to support Liquorose as much as he can to make up for his wrongdoing.

Later, the two slipped away for a private conversation and tried to hash out their differences without having to field opinions from others.

When Emmanuel asked for clarity about where he and Liquorose stand at the moment, Liquorose said she likes him beyond friendship.
