The Plantain Saga On Twitter Streets
The Pepper Dem Gang created quite a buzz on Twitter with their intensive search for a bunch of missing plantain.
Twitterville was on standby to talk about the drama the Big Brother Naija Housemates created on the missing plantains and we caught some of the gists here.
It was an extensive search in Biggie’s House and some of you couldn’t believe some of the places that they were searching.

Along Came A Solution
Considering the Housemates didn’t find the plantains, this tweep offered a solution.
These housemates should go to the Jacuzzi take turns and sing
“If na me hide plantain, water must to carry me, fish must to swallow me”

The Usual Suspects
Based on history, certain Housemates were placed on the block. We didn’t say anything oh, blame it on these tweeps.

A Word Of Prayer
Considering the curses being heaped on the plantain thief by some of the Housemates, Megadhyambo took a spiritual route on the matter.

And Sleep Won
After a rigorous operation titled ‘No Plantain, No Sleep’ the Housemates took to their beds immediately after the exercise. This move didn’t escape Joychinazaa.

Indeed, it was a dramatic night from the Pepper Dem Gang but the good people of Twitter switched up the fun. Thanks, guys! Here’s a look at what happened during the search:
Catching Up With Team Legends
Where two or more members of team Legends are gathered, the cruising never stops. (see what we did there?)
The Eviction of another team member does not stop team Legends from catching cruise whenever they are not at each other’s necks over food or Task preparations. Here’s how Tacha, Omashola and Frodd spent their morning.
The Phony Revelations
Social media allows people publicly share their thoughts and lifestyle with others and according to Tacha, Omashola and Frodd, it has become hard to know whom, where or what to trust.
However, in the midst of the phoney people that cloud social media, Frodd highlighted some ex Pepper Dem Housemates that have a huge following on Instagram and know how to gain traction on their social accounts. Highlighting KimOprah, Frodd revealed that he followed her on Instagram before they came into the House as Biggie’s guests, On this subject, “I even told KimOprah that I was following her before the show but she didn’t follow back,” he added.
In the bid to advise him, Tacha told Frodd that the issue he probably had outside the House with not having people follow him or reply his direct messages is because of his followers count. According to her, “you can’t follow two thousand people with only seven hundred following you back”.
To wrap up the conversation, the chairman of sending DMs like he self-proclaimed, said he would work on his social accounts henceforth. Well, we guess that would be after day 99, right Frodd?
The “Unlooking” Chef
In the midst of the banter from team Legends was an unbothered Seyi, whipping up his breakfast and consciously not participating in the gist. Even after his cooking, one thought he would seize the opportunity to join in the chat as he ate on the dining table. However, sucre papito took on his invincible unlooking mask, while he ate quietly. As if to make it clear enough to anyone who was watching, he sat at the far end of the table to depict his non-engagement.
We reckon you could also feel the tension in the air which may imply that we might not be getting a reconciliation from Seyi and Tachaanytime soon. Or is it too early to judge?
One thing all members of the Pepper Dem Gang do well is their funny workout routines at the Arena every morning. Frodd did not fail to point out how Tacha gets during gym time and Omashola chipped in as he highlighted Mercy’s lazy workout vibes as well.
To be fair, Frodd wrapped up the gist by concluding that all the Housemates are getting better every morning and Omashola agreed to this. Leaving the workout jokers aside, who should be crowned king of Arena workout sessions this Season?
It’s day 80 in the Pepper Dem House and the Housemates are antsy, however, we can’t deny the fact that team Legends have an enviable bond in the House. Let’s see how well it’ll help them in the team Tasks ahead.
The Missing Red Box
Yes, you read right… As predicted by Biggie, the Pepper Dem Gang have again, failed him on this one.
The Ultimate Veto Power challenge is holding all week – in case you missed this gist, check here.
Earlier this week, Biggie gave the Housemates a stern warning where he cautioned them about their carelessness with the Red Box. Apparently, they initially weren’t aware of the importance of this box until Big Brother promised to reward them with severe consequences if the prized possession in their care goes missing.
The Holding Pocket
In the bid to keep the Red Box safe and secure, the Housemates came up with a plan to rotate the holder every day. Meaning whoever is in charge of the box holds the responsibility to secure it all through the day and in fact, treat it like an egg. Sounds like a good plan, right? While cooking in the kitchen, Ike asked if he could help Mercy out with the kitchen duties. In her response, “Don’t worry, all you have to do is to take care of the baby (the box),” she told him.
What then happens when the “baby” goes missing?
Today, Ike was in charge of the box and surprisingly, he did a great job keeping it safe, or so we thought… In a matter of seconds after the thought breezed through our minds, Diane came into the kitchen to ask about the box. It then hit us that we might have judged too quickly.
The Red Hunt
It was not until after Ollie visited the House and Diane had brought up the subject that Ike realised he might have been beaten at his own game. How can the resident Coin bandit be stolen from? “How dare the thief,” we thought.
The trio combed the House in search of the Red Box and we reckon that the fear of being tagged as a careless holder made Ike keep the information to himself. Well, until the box went missing for a few more minutes, then Ike didn’t have a choice but to alert the other members of the Pepper Dem Gang.
The Unusual Suspect
The moment Diane walked into the Kitchen to ask Mercy and Ike about the Red Box, they accused her of taking it. Trust Diane to pull off an innocent face when the need arises, Of course with this, she was able to confuse them and in turn, take them off guard.
Again, Seyi and Cindy went to meet Diane in the Head of House room (while she was chilling with le boo) and confronted her about the missing box. Dear Diane had them fooled again with her innocent look as she denied coming across the box. With the way she took on this acting role, we had no choice but to stan!
Oh, The Thief!
Oh dear, a thief that confesses even before the judge’s trial, is that one a thief? Well, we guess it’s safe to say that her relationship with the Icy pair made her lessen their anxiety. Friendship goals or nah?
Like a thief in the night, Diane ran in to get the box and within the same second-placed it in the Dressing Room. She might have had them fooled but the shock on their faces could not be hidden as Ike, Cindy and Seyi heard about the caught thief. Mercy, on the other hand, was unbothered because according to her, she could tell that her friend was lying.
Like a bear keeping its cub from harm, Ike told Mercy that he left the Red Box in the bathroom, just because he knew how angry she would have been if she knew the truth. So, rather than reveal the truth, Ike told a lie for his resident daughter. How cute?

Out Of Sight
For Ike, a second steal will not be happening again… At least, not on his watch!
It might have been a prank today but how long will the Pepper Dem Gang be able to secure the Ultimate VPH Box before Sunday? Seeing how careless and quick to react they can get, we can’t wait to see a new side of them as they work as a team in achieving this goal.
