Just last week, the story of Nigeria’s representative at the ongoing Big Brother Africa reality TV, Beverly Osu show took centre stage and as expected, it came with the trademark theatrics, controversies and sexual undercurrents that the show has become known for over the years.
However, as we all know, there’s always a fresh issue to shoot at on the show and this time, we’re back at the STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) saga between two housemates.
What began with admiration, attraction, friendship, intimacy and eventually sex between Nando and Selly has since gone sour; thus, degenerating into episodes of accusations and counter accusations of one party allegedly infecting the other with a STD.
It all started when Nando openly accused fellow housemate, Selly of infecting him with STDs and it came as a bit of a surprise to viewers when Nando and Selly who were once very intimate suddenly began to avoid each other.
Earlier in the show, while talking to Bimp one-on-one, Nando had disclosed that Selly infected him with what he called 'Chlamydia;' a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), even as this claim is yet to be medically verified.
Nando’s allegations might remain largely unconfirmed but it completely explains the glaring loss of affection between himself and Selly while she was still in the house to a point of keeping each other at arms length.
The drama appears to have taken a new dimension as the Ghanaian evictee and former housemate, Selly has threatened to ensure Nando pays the price for allegedly tarnishing her image before a global audience.
While fielding questions at a recent press conference in Accra, Selly revealed she is presently considering suing Nando for defamation of character.
When asked to comment on Nando's claims that she infected him with an STD, she said, "Actually, my mum has threatened to take Nando on legally, which we have communicated to the BBA producers. Nando and I did not have sexual intercourse; we made out, yes! And that was as far as it went. I am only hearing all these things outside of the house because I didn’t know about it while I was in the house so I didn’t get a chance to defend myself.”
She expressed her shock at his claim and noted that she would get him to communicate to the world where he contracted his ‘STD’ from.
“…So for the STI allegations that he is making, I am just waiting for Nando to come out so I can ask him how he got the STI. I have been tested and I don’t have any background of STI or STD so I don’t know how Nando contracted the disease that he claims he has.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria's Beverly remains at the receiving end of strong condemnation for her alcohol induced episode, which left her intoxicated enough to indulge in cuddling, kissing and ended with fellow housemate, Angelo’s fingers moving in and out of the warm area between her thighs.
The model holds no pretence about her wild personality appears to have taken all of this in good stride as her quest to become $300,000 remains on course.
Back to the STD saga, at a point in the show, Nando became sick for some time and while some viewers were quick to trace this to the possibility of the illness being a physical manifestation of a sexually transmitted disease, others on the optimistic side truncated this line of thought and brushed it aside as nothing more than stories without substance.
Another issue that came up for discussion on social media platforms was whether Nando and Selly used any form of protection before getting intimate or if it happened in the primitive way; completely devoid of any protection.
Through all of this, Nando however, made it crystal clear that he wasn’t ready for a serious relationship but was just out to satisfy himself.
For followers of the Big Brother Africa show, it might interest you to know that a total of 15 housemates have been evicted from the house so far. Contestants who have been evicted from the show include Bolt, Maria, Biguesas, Neyll, Betty, Montamma, Denzel, LK4, Koketso, Fatima, Hakeem, Natasha and Selly. The latest additions to the list are Sierra Leone's Bassey and Zimbabwe's Pokello as they bid farewell to the prize money
As another week rolls to an end, viewers wonder who the axe of eviction strikes next.
