Actor Fredrick Leonard has described the BBNaija 'eviction twist' on Sunday as baseless and unnecessary.
He made the statement in a lengthy message to the organisers of Big Brother Naija, following the eviction twist that saw BBNaija housemate, Pere and Angel fighting for a spot in the finals.
On Sunday night Big Brother introduced a twist in the game after Queen, Nini and Saga were evicted.
The twist, which is tagged the ‘Double Jeopardy Task’, will produce the fifth housemate that will join Emmanuel, Liquorose, Cross and Whitemoney to the finals.
However, the introduction of this twist by Biggie has been received with backlashes social media.
They said that the twist was totally unnecessary seeing the margin between the votes for Pere and Angel.
Leonard likened Biggie’s move to Nigeria's politics.
He queried the motive of the organisers in introducing the twist when it was obvious that Pere gathered more votes than Angel.
According to the thespian, the White Room is twist is clearly baseless and unnecessary.
He warned BBNaija to do the right thing, that is to show the world that their votes count or risk discrediting its show which enjoys huge viewership across the African continent.
Leonard said: “WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND NIGERIAN POLITICS? WHY ASK PEOPLE TO VOTE IF THEIR VOTES WON’T COUNT?
“So If @pereegbiofficial Loses the Puzzle in the White Room Will he Go HOME? Even Though he Won on VOTES?
“#bbnaija LISTEN, People went out of their way, to put in the Work and VOTE because u Made Us BELIEVE OUR VOTES WILL COUNT.
“Better Do the Right Thing and Let the Winner on VOTES go back into the House as A Finalist, So you do not Discredit A show that has The Backing and Viewership Support of Millions Across the continent of Africa.
“This WHITE ROOM TWIST IS CLEARLY BASELESS AND UNNECESSARY..
“Ps. Even if @pereegbiofficial Wins the Puzzle in the WHITE ROOM, it will be Unfair for him to go through that Heart Palpitating route with Another Housemate who Already LOST on VOTES!
“BIG BROTHER! Do the Right Thing and Keep Your Show Credible. DO NOT ROB VOTERS!”
