In what can be described as unprecedented, Kemen got the boot from the show, making him the first 'Big Brother Naija' housemate to be disqualified.
While Nigerian media sites have widely reported his disqualification as a result of the alleged fondling of his fellow housemate T-Boss while she was asleep next to him, a press release sent out after Sunday's eviction by M-Net made no mention of the incident.
The company instead said that he was disqualified “a few hours before the eviction show owing to his breaking one of the house rules”.
This is despite a video circulating on social media depicting Kemen touching his fellow housemate while she was asleep.
Responding to questions sent to them about the incident and their stance on such behaviour in the house, M-Net said: “This season, Big Brother has been issuing strikes to housemates for breaking house rules, and Kemen had previously been cautioned by Big Brother for conspiring against other housemates, as well as certain inappropriate comments he had made in reference to another housemate.”
The statement further reads “M-Net and the show producers Endemol Shine Africa are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all housemates in the Big Brother house at all times.
We view the actions of Kemen as inappropriate behaviour, and as such we considered this in a very serious light and will continue to take necessary disciplinary action against housemates who break the rules of conduct in the Big Brother house.”
Uriel's hopes of winning the coveted prize of N25 million and an SUV were also dashed on Sunday, after securing the least number of votes from her fans.
In yet another twist, host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced that there won't be an eviction next Sunday.
The eviction show was exciting as the audience were treated to exhilarating music from Mr Capable, Banky W, who performed two of his favourite songs: 'All I Want Is You' and 'Yes or No'.
