After a thrilling 70 days, the Big Brother Naija Lockdown show has really come to an end. 70 days, 20 housemates, 14 evictions, one disqualification, and ₦85 million in prizes!

Fans of some housemates are probably somewhere bristling, upset that their fave did not win. Still, Africans have made their decisions to crown an Icon, Laycon the winner of the 5th season of the #BBNaija Lockdown show! Whoop!

The finale may not have gone how you thought, probably due to the pandemic or other reasons but you cannot deny that it was an unforgettable show filled with unforgettable moments. So out of those very many unforgettable moments, here are six that won’t be leaving our minds.

Ebuka and his wardrobe

Last night, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu proved yet again that he is a fashion icon. He gave an epic ending to a season of impressive style, his theme was Shine Shine Bobo.

First, Ebuka arrived the stage in black pants and a multi-colour blinged-out blazer made by the usual suspect, Mai Atafo.

As if that wasn’t enough for one night, as if that wasn’t enough to end the show with, Ebuka arrived with a wardrobe change that continued his Shine Shine Bobo theme: a Mai Atafo-designed agbada, embroidered with stones, and matching it with an embroidered cap and loafers matching the colour of his agbada.

Laycon is the crowned winner

Laycon came into the game with so many expectations and left with the grand prize. Talk about grace! The ‘god’ in a human body as often called, carted away with the winner’s prize worth 85 million Naira.

Banging Performances

The opening ceremony was legendary! First, was an amazing performance from Cavemen as they serenaded us with some soothing music. Next, we had Babs Cadini perform some magic as he handed over the envelope for tonight’s eviction to Ebuka on the finale stage. How could we forget the lit performing act from Fireboy DML as he performed some of the lit songs from his album, “Apollo“? Rema the “Ginger Me” master also came through tonight as he kept our eyes locked to our screens with his inspired performance. From “Beamer to “Woman, we had a blast.

Before Ebuka’s first eviction announcement, Big Brother had a quick chat with his chosen ones – and tonight, he addressed them as the celebrated ones in the Lockdown Season. From Nengi’s calm demeanour to the oracle’s lit moments in the house, Dorathy‘s smile that lit up the house and of course, the queen of straight talk, Vee; Biggie gave his congratulatory messages to all five.
