Ngozi ‘Erica’ Nlewedim, a housemate in the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show on Sunday escaped being disqualified from the show after almost bagging the third strike.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Biggie, the manly voice heard in the BBNaija house slammed Erica with a strong warning rather than issuing her a third strike after she was seen on camera with Kiddwaya showing disrespect to viewers and Big Brother.
It all started when Biggie asked the housemates to view some footage from earlier in the week. The footage showed Kiddwaya flipping his fingers at the camera, clearly showing blatant disrespect for Biggie’s authority.
This caused Biggie to refer to article 18 in the rule book which is dedicated to prohibited behaviour, particularly on page 14. This section of the article tackles rudeness to Big Brother which is listed as a punishable offense.
“Your actions have no other words to describe them but blatant disrespect to Big Brother and the viewers. Your flipping of fingers to the camera did not go unnoticed. The first incident occurred on the same day you were both issued a strike for disrespecting the Head of House rule,” Biggie told Erica and Kiddway.
Biggie also added that he decided to be lenient to them because they were issued a strike for that offense already.
Erica was then issued a strong and final warning while Kiddwaya was issued a strike meaning that one more strike will result in immediate disqualification from the Big Brother house.
In Big Brother's House there are rules and they need to be adhered to. For blatantly disrespecting Big Brother and the viewers #BBErica receives a strong and final warning and #BBKiddwaya receives a strike. https://t.co/uAkXPXUILr#BBLiveBlog #BBNaija pic.twitter.com/iCCgMPqReH

Recall that Erica last Sunday bagged double strike leaving her one strike away from being disqualified from the show. Biggie returned last Sunday after a vacation, slamming strikes on Erica; Kiddwaya, the then head of house (HOH); Tolanibaj, the then deputy head of house (DHOH) and Ozo.
Erica bagged one strike for whispering in the house and another for spending more time than required as a visitor in the HOH lounge last Sunday. One more strike for her, and she is out of the house just like Tacha, who was disqualified in the 2019 edition of the show.
While Ozo, bagged a strike for whispering in the house, Kiddwaya and Tolanibaj bagged one strike each for breaking Biggie’s HOH lounge rules last Sunday.
TNG reports the development leaves Kiddwaya and Erica with one strike each away from being disqualified from the BBNaija reality TV show.
