One of the housemates in the most popular Africa’s reality television show, #BBNaijaS7 is a 26-year-old England-based Segun Daniel Olusemo popularly known as Shegzz.
Shegzz is also an actor and professional footballer among the housemates in the #BBNaijaS7 themed ‘Level Up’ which began on Saturday.
He asserted that that he thinks it is important to settle down with a partner one genuinely connects with than going for the vibes.
According to #BBNaija’s Shegzz, “I think it’s important to settle down with someone you genuinely connect with and not just for vibes.”
Revealing his profile, after sustaining an injury last year, he started acting again and recently scored a role in a production directed by Tola Odunsi.
Shegzz said he is a hard worker as well as a smart worker, and believes it is important to be both.
He also revealed that it is a good thing to be a talkative when needed, but also a good listener, as he considers himself down to earth, relatable, and ambitious.
Shegzz is currently single, loves relationships, but believes it is pertinent to find the right person. “I think it’s important to settle down with someone you genuinely connect with and not just for vibes,” he said.
Speaking on his participation on #BBNaija, Sheggz believes he has a lot of skills to show the world.
“Nigerians have talent, we have swag, we have vibes, we’re smart, we’re ambitious and to be honest, we’re all over the world smashing goals and achieving,” said Shegzz.
Chichi and Bella, BBNaija season seven housemates, have clashed over a dance contest put together by their colleagues in the house.
The housemates had organised a dance session as part of efforts to further strengthen their bond while dividing themselves into two teams.
Everyone was asked to pick their preferred team for the exercise.
Drama, however, started when Chichi, who was not present during the selection process, argued that one team had more dancers.
The stripper had demanded that the teams should be reshuffled in order to achieve a balance.
But Bella countered the idea and insisted that the teams should not be reshuffled.
Rankled by the objection, Chichi confronted her and asked why she was “shouting like a market woman”.
The situation escalated as both women engaged in a heated war of words with Bella referring to Chichi as “stupid”.
Chichi also fired back, warning “before you try me, try crack.”
The duo were among the housemates unveiled on Sunday.
This makes it the first clash so far in the seventh edition of the show which started on Saturday.
The winner of this year’s edition, titled ‘Level Up’, will go home with a grand prize of 100 million — the highest ever since the inception of BBNaija.
N50 million is the cash prize while the other N50 million is an estimation of prizes from the sponsors.
As BBNaija S7 housemates settle and share a connection, Beauty and Groovy in particular were quick to pair for a friendship already.
But, sadly, flirtatious moves between the two housemates met with disappointment as Groovy refused to kiss his female counterpart Beauty, leaving her feeling slighted.
Beauty has been spotted flirting around Groovy, but he seems to be treading lightly. At the Kitchen table last night, he gave Beauty a sip from his cup, before proceeding to rub her back, saying, “You seem to like massages.”
According to a report by Africa Magic, Beauty had admitted to liking Groovy, but stated she does not want to cause trouble for him, because she realises that other ladies may be interested in pursuing something with him.
Later, this flirtation took a tense twist, resulting in hurt feelings and a subsequent apology, which started when the Level Up Housemates decided to play a game of ‘Truth or Dare.’
There has been a complaint by Beauty that Groovy was being uptight and left the game. Groovy then followed her to the bedroom and tried to explain why he had declined.
Beauty dared to kiss Groovy, but for the presence of their fellow Housemates, who are noticing the connection too, the move met with resistance.
“I feel like it’s a bit too early for this”. He continued to explain his reasoning, but when Beauty didn’t seem to let it go, he told her “If I am out of the picture, would it not be easier for you to do what you’re here to do?”
After a battle of wits, which saw the duo bare their perspectives, Beauty told Groovy, “I can be cranky for other things, but not this. This whole process is a lot for me.”
After some time, Beauty asked for a chat to apologize for overreacting. Groovy accepted the apology and the pair decided to restart their friendship.
Later in the morning, Groovy made sure to get Beauty everything she needed after complaining about feeling ill. “Maybe it’s malaria. Did you get a smoothie? Do you want one?,” Groovy said.
Viewers keep an eye on these pairs, while time will tell, whether Beauty will manage to snag Groovy.
Big Brother Naija season seven housemate, Hermes, has revealed that he is in a relationship with two women.
Hermes made this known during his introduction on Sunday.
He told housemates that the two women knew each other.
According to him, the relationship is more of a partnership.
”I am not single, my relationship is a complicated issue. I am in a partnership-relationship with two queens,” he said.
His revelation gave him a standing ovation from the housemates who were amazed.
Hermes was among the 13 housemates that entered the Level Up house on Sunday, the second day of the season seven launch.
Big Brother Naija show organisers have finally released photos of the main house that would be used for the season 7 show.

Angel Smith, the 2021 Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) housemate, says she dropped out of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) due to trauma from sexual assault.
The 22-year-old brought the revelation to light in an interview with Taymesan, the media personality.
The reality TV star said she was sexually assaulted by an undisclosed person shortly after she gained admission into the institution.
According to her, the experience made learning difficult for her and eventually informed her decision to drop out after two weeks in the institution.
“I was in UNILAG for only two weeks. I struggled so much for those two weeks because when I got into UNILAG was my first sexual assault experience,” she said.
“After that experience happened, I can remember just moving through it and pretending like it never happened.
“It affected my school life so much. I always blamed it on not knowing what to do in UNILAG when actually, I’ve always been fully aware of what I wanted to do.”
Angel also recounted how she struggled to sustain interest in chasing her dreams after the incident.
The reality TV added that at the time, her abuser’s comment — “don’t let me rape you” — kept coming back to her.
Angel said she kept the incident to herself due to fear of being mocked.
“I knew what I wanted to do but I didn’t just do that because I had experienced something so traumatic and I didn’t speak to anybody about it, especially not my granny because I had so much shame,” she added.
“Nobody knew I was out of school until my mum had asked and I was like, ‘let me finally be out with it’.
“When I told her that and she asked me why, I obviously did not tell her what happened. I just told her I didn’t think I was doing the right course. Then she enrolled me in a foundational programme in the UK, which I dropped out from too.”
Whitemoney has been declared the winner of the Season 6 of the Big Brother Naija reality television show themed ‘Shine Ya Eye’, leaving Liquorose as the first runner up.
At the grand finale on Sunday, housemates evicted were Emmanuel, Angel, Cross, and Pere; leaving Whitemoney and Liquorose as the top two housemates battling for the N90m grand prize.
Born Hazel Onou, the 29-year-old contestant is one of the fans’ favourite. Fondly known as Whitemoney, the reality TV show star was born on July 6, 1992 and hails from Enugu State where he spent his early days before moving to Lagos.
During the show, Whitemoney had mentioned in several instances that he had it rough growing up. At a point, he had to sell food with his mother at a young age.
The TV star has also mentioned that part of his hustle included commercial photography, fixing generator sets, among others.
Leveraging the BBNaija platform, Whitemoney, who is an entrepreneur, has seized the opportunity to ‘sell his market’, hence viewers of the show see him as a ‘typical Igbo man’ and an astute businessman.
On the show, Whitemoney also won some money. He recently won N1m during the Johnnie Walker contest; during the BuyPower contest, he and Liquorose won N500,000 each.
Big Brother Naija housemate Angel said revealed that she is a kind of person that likes to laugh and gist while having sex.
She said this while having a discussion with Jackie B, Nini and Queen about male housemates they find good-looking.
According to her, Cross is her kind of guy and I see myself having sex with Cross outside the house.
Angel said, “Cross is one of the male housemates on my top four that I find attractive.
“I see myself having sex with Cross outside the house because I like to laugh, gist when having sex and Cross is that playful."
This is not the first time Angel has opened up about being sexually attracted to Cross.
Recall that Angel revealed to Jackie on a previous episode how she is sexually attracted to Cross.
Angel also disclosed to Cross during a conversation, when they were alone in the room.
Cross asked Angel, “If you have the opportunity to f**k any housemate, who would that be?” Angel then replied and her facing the down, “You.”
With a smile and overcoming laughter, Cross said, “I would love to sleep with you too. I will shift your womb.”
“Abeg o, don’t shift it” Angel replied. Cross then replied her “I will not shift it.”
