Skeptics have said, ” BB Naija housemates have already been chosen and have been trained ahead of the show, so everyone that auditioned has wasted their time and money”.
While others, ”housemates were picked for different reasons. For example, Khloe was picked for her drama and Vandora a happy girl. The organizers have a template of what they want from these housemates, it depends on them” – Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
