The final show was definitely not lacking in the pomp, glitz and glamour the Big Brother show has come to be known for. The show kicked off with interesting performances from music artists including “Eja Nla” D’banj who had the audience asking for more of his performance.
IK then went straight to the eviction as the representative of the auditing firm brought the envelope containing the names of the six housemates that would first be evicted. IK asked all the Hotshots to stand just as he called the names of Butterfly and Ma’m Bea to leave the house as they were the first to be evicted.
A musical performance by Nzonzi helped to douse the highly tensed atmosphere. After the musical interlude, IK welcomed Butterphly and Ma’m Bea to the stage and asked them how they feel. Butterphly said she felt like crying for leaving at this stage while Ma’m Bea said she learnt a lot the last week. Butterphly said the house brought out the real her even as it took her long to adjust. Ma’m Bea said she had a caring heart which she picked up from her mother. IK presented a medallion as gift from Biggie to the duo, saying it will help serve as a reminder they made it to the finals.
IK moved on to the housemates for the next set of evictions. He announced the names of JJ and Sipe as the next evictees from the Big Brother house. IK welcomed them to the stage and went on straight to ask how they felt. Both said they felt great on leaving the house when they did. Sipe said the fact that she won the star metre twice means that people appreciated her effort in the house. Sipe was in tears has she watched her journey in the house. Sipe said she thinks Macky2 or Idris will win it. JJ on his part said he thinks either of Nhlanhla or Idris will emerge as winners.
IK went back into the house to send two more housemates home. He reminded them that there could only be one of them walking away with the money from the four of them. He then told the four that Nhlanhla and Macky2 are the next two housemates leaving the house. MI then came on stage to perform “Bad Belle” off his new ‘Chairman’ album.
Macky2 told IK that he did his best and that was all that mattered to him while Nhlanhla said Idris was his major challenge in the house which was why he requested Africa to vote the most entertaining person. And the final moment came as IK was handed the envelop containing the name of the ultimate Hotshot. The remaining two housemates, Tayo and Idris were summoned into the diary room for the final diary session. Big Brother said he wishes them the best as he signed up the diary session for the ninth season. The housemates then left the house for the live studio. IK then went on to announce Idris as the ultimate hotshot who walks away with the $300,000 prize money.
