July 22, 2020

Since this year’s BBNaija housemates were unveiled, Nigerians have gone into FBI mode in order to dig out things about them that might be unknown to others. And trust us when we say they found enough.

1. Nengi lied about her age

Nengi whose full name is Rebecca ‘Nengi’ Hampson is said to be 22 years old. But some Nigerians went into FBI mode and discovered that Nengi contested for MBGN in 2017 and was 23 then. Well, Nengi has confirmed it herself that she lied about her age for a pageant she entered for when she was 16. Our calculator has spoilt, but we will show you the video and let you calculate it yourself.

This tweet isn’t correct, by the way. But the comments under it provide a lot of details about Nengi.

2. It looks like Praise might married with a son
