A video circulating online captures the reactions of the BBNaija “All Stars” finalists to the announcement of Ilebaye as the winner of the show.
Recall that Ilebaye, a 22-year-old from Kogi state, was declared the winner of the reality TV show on Sunday, October 1, surpassing 23 other housemates.
During the finale, the other finalists— Cross, Pere, Adekunle, and Ceec—were eliminated in that order, leaving only Ilebaye and Mercy.
Ilebaye ultimately emerged as the winner with the highest percentage of votes, 30.08%, while Mercy received 23.48%, CeeC had 23.41%, Adekunle garnered 12.61%, Pere secured 5.82%, and Cross came in at the bottom with 4.60%.
Following their elimination, the bottom housemates were seen watching the live show backstage. When the show host, Ebuka, announced Ilebaye as the winner, they appeared to be unhappy with the outcome.
One of them even mentioned that ‘they’, seemingly referring to the show’s organizers, gave Ilebaye the ‘game.’
The leaked video has sparked mixed reactions online, with many criticizing them for underestimating the self-styled “Gen Z baddie” during the show.
