BBNaija 2019 Saturday August 24 – Day 54: The Pepper Dem Fighters
We can’t always expect all the Pepper Dem Gang to get along and what happens when they don’t? Fight! Fight! Fight!.
No one expects the Pepper Dem Gang to be at peace all the time and going about doing ‘kumbaya’ in the House. What we didn’t expect was how frequent the fights would be and boy, were there a lot. Like siblings, the Pepper Dem Gang bickered and some ended in ugly fights. Be it power struggle or food, there was always something getting the Housemates worked up and ready to have a go at each other.
Pre Task Fights: Just like death and taxes, fights were always certain before any Task. Preparing for a Task in the House was like driving a car with different Housemates reaching for the wheel. What happens when everyone wants to drive is a clash of egos. From Seyi to Tacha to Jeff to Ella, almost every one of the Pepper Dem Gang has been involved in an altercation leading up to a Task. The first major pre Task altercation was between Jeff and Tacha. To be fair, he set himself up that. Picking an all-male team leads wasn’t exactly a smart move and Tacha saw right through it and came for him. Although he made amends later, but not before we noted it down as one of the major fights in the House.
The first Wager Task had everyone in their feelings. First Tacha stormed off from the Task rehearsals in annoyance, then KimOprah and Ella all got into mild fights about who should play what role. Mercy and Omashola had a go at it too right before a Thursday Task Presentation. Omashola felt Mercy wasn’t doing enough and what ensued next was – you guessed it! A shouting match.
The Coronation Challenge had its fair share of fights. It started with Venita and Khafi going at each other for a role before Seyi got involved and ended up turning into a threesome, but not the kind we like, but the type that had curse words and angry parties. They eventually resolved it but mean statements were made and we wonder if the apologies will douse the sting of the insults.

For no reason at all, some Housemates just want to fight. Like it gets them going. Till today, we really can’t say for sure why Joe went to provoke Tacha into an argument. An argument that led to a vicious outburst from Tacha and eventually earned them each a Strike. Tacha believed he had a preconceived notion about her and that’s why he wanted to test her, but we believe Joe was being Joe.
The fight here is typically a ‘who can shout the loudest’ fight.’ Don’t get it wrong, all the fights have always been a shouting match, but these ones put a little extra effort into their battle cry. The loudest of them is Omashola closely followed by Thelma. Imagine what the House would be like if the two loudest people fought each other? Now, stop imagining, because they did fight each other. Omashola attempted to get into the bathroom while Thelma was taking her bath and all hell was let loose.
Omashola must be the only Housemate who has fought with everyone and no one at the same time. Getting robbed of his Bet 9ja Coins brought out the rage in him as he hurled threats at everyone and no one in particular. This rage earned him a Strike and it’s been a battle since then to keep his rage in check to prevent him from earning another.
Thelma locked horns with Esther when the former addressed physically challenged people with an inappropriate term. It took the intervention of Sir Dee, Ike, and Tuoyo to settle the rift.
Although Tacha isn’t exactly that loud, she does have a way of making herself heard in every fight. Her voice could be heard loud and clear as she yelled insults at Frodd when he tried to make use of the bathroom while she also wanted to.
The After-Party Fights
This has become the hallmark of most Saturday Nights Parties. Rarely have we ever seen a Party not end with a fight right after. We dare say the fights have become the icing to Saturday Night Party cakes. Ike and Mercy are the usual suspects when it comes to these fights. Not only have they fought with some of the other Housemates, but they have also fought each other too. Fueled by alcohol and jealousy, Ike has at one time or the other wanted to have a go at Tuoyo, Joe and possibly every other male Housemate who danced with Mercy during the Saturday Night Parties. Ike’s fight with Seyi over ice cream Seyi birthed the popular phrase “F*ck the Ice Cream my n*gga” and also got him his second Strike threatening his stay in the House. That was the closest we’ve had to a physical confrontation cause if the rest of the Housemates didn’t restrain Ike, it would have turned ugly.
Mercy’s fight with Gedoni resulted in her breaking a mobile phone in a moment of rage. Even Mike, the captain of the Cruisetopia had a bit of the action when Tacha came for him after he rubbed birthday cake in her hair. He did keep his cool though, which was quite commendable cause Tacha was pushing those buttons.
The Food Fights
The first-ever fight in the house was caused by food, so was the next one. After someone once sold his birthright for food, we weren’t too surprised at how eager the Housemates were to drag each other over food. First, it was Esther who threw a fit cause someone ate the food she made (That someone was Mike by the way), then the fish fiasco where Tacha and Thelma were ready to take it to the boxing ring, but they settled for curses instead.
Love triangles have created uncomfortable situations in the House and the fight for the love of your life can get crazy at times. Mercy wasn’t afraid to take it down to crazy lane with Ella over Ike. Mercy suspected Ella had a soft spot for Ike and she wasn’t having it. “Find another man wey dey single,” she screamed at Ella. We wonder how things would have turned out if Ella hadn’t been Evicted. There was a mild war between Frodd and Omashola over Venita when she decided to pick Frodd over Omashola which later backfired, but that’s another story. A hurt Omashola did let out loud outbursts once in a while, some directed towards Venita, but mostly about Frodd.
When you look at it, the fights were really about basic stuff. Ideally, nothing to lose your head over, but when you are competing with people from different backgrounds all clamoring to put up a brave front, there will always be a power struggle and where there is a power struggle, there will always be clashes.
