On Sunday, organisers of the Big Brother Nigeria Season Six shocked viewers and fans with the introduction of four new housemates.
As expected, the development seemed to have set tongues wagging and generated divergent reactions online.
It looks more like a palace coup as nobody saw it coming.
The drama started when Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the official BBNaija host, introduced Michael, Kayvee and JMK and Queen into the house during Sunday live show.
His introduction further heightened tension among viewers who kept wondering what was going on.
While some fans were happy with the innovation, some others fear that the 'ships' built by existing housemates will be destroyed.
On Instagram, the reactions were endless.
A certain @Lemmy wrote, "Michael should scatter Maria and Pere ship."
@Tobbsxx posted, "I love how Biggie is 'tensioning' the boring housemates."
On her part, @Ms_akas said, "I guess Biggie noticed he selected a lot of boring housemates and decided to switch things up. Welcome Michael, Kayvee and JMK, Content please!
@ChigozieObi "JMK take interest in Saga and scatter SANI , Micheal go and scatter Angel and Sammie please. Kayvee, I don't know for now but scatter something."
@Joneslotty "Dear Michael, please take Maria, this ship must sail."
@Is_Salsu "4th housemate which means there would be 4th eviction. Big brother is just packing these people away. Hopefully, these new housemates have content oh."
@Olatundeh "If these new guys, Michael, KhayVee, JMK and Queen don't bring the proper vibe in their first week, they should all just be evicted at once!
@Olatayo_Michael "Biggie knows ordinary things no fit move Nigerians anymore, extraordinary things he's doing now."
@Lawyergirl "I would like to see an Angel Michael ship.. fingers crossed."

@Ngozi "Michael and JMK are qualified to blow up any ships that may exist or be in construction."
@Rasha "JMK should go for Pere please. I want Michael for Maria."
@Jefe_says "22 housemates were ushered into the house. The highest number ever in #BBNaija history. How boring do 22 people have to be for the organisers to bring new housemates. Mehn, Biggie must have really been losing money and ratings. Anyways welcome to Michael, Kayvee, JMK."
