Earlier, the housemates had hosted Nigerian popular song writer, singer and performer, David Adeleke, a.k.a Davido.
He came with ‘sushi’ and champagne in tow to pay the housemates a visit.
The usual tour of the house was done before everyone settled down in the dining area and popped open the bottle of champagne.
Davido discussed the merits of being true to oneself and pointed out that he made more money in few months than he had made over the years after deciding to go local and champion his cause.
He asked the housemates what they planned to do with the N25 million after winning.
Bisola said she would like to go to a film school.
While Debie-Rise and Efe said they would want to push their music career to the next level, Tboss revealed that if she won, she would like to have her own talk show.
Marvis who was a protocol officer at an oil and gas company before coming to the house said she would like to open a bar.
After listening to them, the self acclaimed ‘Omo Baba OLowo’ told them that no matter what their dreams were, it was imperative that they make careful choices and not get overwhelmed.
According to Davido, if overwhelmed they would wake up and not realise where the money went.
“You make all these plans and then when the money comes, its different; I spent one million dollars in three months.”
At that point the buzzer sounded and everyone said their goodbyes.
The winner will take home the grand prize of N25 million and a Kia Sorrento SUV.
