Just like every other reality TV show, Big Brother Naija has a common set of rules that housemates are meant to abide by to stay in the house.
Besides eviction, some housemates have been disqualified from the house for not abiding by a set of rules.
In the house, housemates are given a strike for each rule broken, with a maximum of three strikes, after which the housemate would be disqualified. Although, some offences may be too significant to earn straight disqualification without a strike, while others might be too negligible and the offender might get off with just a warning from Biggie.
Unlike being evicted, disqualified housemates are made to exit the house through the back entrance. They would not be granted any form of an interview and would also forfeit any money or prizes that may have been won during the course of the show.
See a full list of housemates who have been disqualified throughout the Big Brother Naija show.
Beauty Tukura is one of the latest housemates in the Big brother Naija house to be disqualified. The former beauty Queen was a participant in the Season 7 of the reality tv show, tagged “Level Up”.
Beauty was disqualified after having a brawl with fellow housemate, Groovy, over claims that he danced with Chomzy. She was also involved in physical violence with Illebaye.
Asides from being disqualified, Beauty becomes the first housemate to be disqualified within two weeks of the premiere of the reality TV show.
Ngozi Erica Nlewedim is one of the Big Brother Naija stars who got evicted. She was one of the housemates in the Season 5 of the show, tagged, “The Lockdown”.
Erica got evicted after confronting Laycon who claimed she tried to kiss him. She had earlier gotten two strikes after breaking several house rules, which includes bullying, provocation and engaging with the production crew.
Erica is currently an actress and model. She has been featured in several movies and has also bagged an award at the 2022 African Movies Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) as the “Best New Actor”.
Kemen Ekerete, popularly known as Kemen, was evicted from the second season of the reality tv show in 2017.
He was accused of sexually touching a fellow housemate, T-Boss, without her consent and while she was asleep.
In a series of interviews, Kemen had cleared the air that the allegations laid against him did not happen as was portrayed on the show.
Kemen, who hails from Port-Harcourt, is presently a Fitness coach and an entrepreneur.
Anita Natacha, fondly known as Tacha or SymplyTacha, was one of the Big Brother Naija housemates who also got disqualified.
Tacha was present in season 4 of the reality TV show, labelled “Pepper Dem”. She was disqualified from the show over a brawl with her co-housemate and rival, Mercy Eke.
After the fight, Mercy received two strikes while Tacha was disqualified from the show, after being found guilty of physical violence and purpose to cause harm.
Before Tacha’s disqualification, she was known to be a strong antagonist in the show as she had proven enough traits to win the show.
Tacha is currently an actress and content creator
KHLOE AND K-BRULE
Khloe and K-Brule were both paired in the Big Brother Naija season 3 series in 2018, titled “Double wahala”.
In the season 3 series of the show, housemates were paired in twos, and Khloe and K-Brule were unified.
The controversy started when K-Brule tried kissing co-housemate, Leo. Leo told Khloe about this and she then went to confront K-Brule. In the process, she used derogatory words to describe K-Brule’s mother, which triggered him to hit her, but was restrained by other housemates.
The two, who had received two strikes earlier, received their third strikes for the fight and were both disqualified.
Khloe is currently an entrepreneur, owning a clothing line and a skincare line, while K-Brule is a rapper.
