After hours of anticipation, the BBNaija fans as well as the male housemates who entered the house the night before, finally got to see the female housemates on Sunday, 25th July 2021.
To spice things up, the male housemates decided to play a prank on the female housemates; Angel, Peace, Jackie B, Tega, Arin, Maria, Liquorose, Beatrice, Princess, Saskay and Nini, by not saying a word to them as they made their way to the living room. The female housemates seemed worried and confused as they did not understand why the guys were giving them the ‘cold shoulder’. The guys finally ended the prank once all the female housemates were present and welcomed them with a loud cheer.
