Big Brother Naija housemate, Lucy Essien, on Monday evening emerged the second Head of House (HOH) in the ongoing Big Brother Naija ‘Lockdown’ reality show.

She takes over from Nengi who emerged this season’s first HOH last week.

The position of HoH is assumed weekly by a winner of the weekly task as instructed by Big Brother.

The process

The housemates played a game of dice where they had two minutes each to take steps on the mat.

To start the game, they were all expected to roll a ‘6’ on the dice to move, each housemate has two minutes to take steps on the mat towards the box that says: Head of House.

At the end of the game, Essien emerged winner, which gives her immunity from eviction this week alongside her deputy, Prince.

Biggie instructed her to pick a male as the deputy head of house after her win.


The housemates heaved a sigh of relief on Sunday night after Ebuka announced that there was no eviction.

He, however, told viewers that the housemates will hold live evictions every Sunday in the coming weeks of the show.

According to Ebuka, the housemates will each take turns to nominate one of the bottom four housemates with the lowest votes for eviction.

For the very first in the show, the housemate who has the most nominations will make the final decision on who goes home…for now!
