The ongoing BBNaija Season 5 show seemed to have been proceeding without much glitch until yesterday where it appears that things have been turned on their heads in a bit to cheat leading housemate Laycon.
Voting lines for the top 5 housemates (Laycon, Dorathy, Neo, Vee and Nengi) were supposed to have been closed last night at 10pm West African Time (WAT), but it appears that as at 14 to 15 hours after this time deadline, text voting lines were still open.
This has caused a lot of Laycon supporters, who go by the tag iCONS, to lead a protest on Micro blogging site twitter with the hashtag #AfricanMagicShutTheVotingLines.
The curious thing however is that at 10pm WAT, iCONS had gone to sleep with the notion that their massive voting would (as expected) cause their favourite housemate, Laycon to win. But sudden intelligence gathered from some quarters revealed that certain voting groups of certain housemates were aware that the voting lines wouldn’t be closed at 10pm and kept voting massively even up to 15 hours after the supposed deadline.
This is beginning to look like a dent in the image of the organizers of Big Brother Naija and the entire Multichoice outfit as a whole, as it seems as though there is some underhand dealings to see to it that Laycon does not emerge as the ultimate winner of the season 5 edition of the show – and this is very bad for the brand which till now had appeared to be beyond reproach in its voting mechanism.
Could this lead to the eventual discrediting of the entire show if Laycon does not emerge as the rightful winner? Voting trends for the last 9 week clearly shows that the housemate’s fanbase is way larger than that of all other housemates combined as such it is curious to know what the motive behind this move is.
Or could it just be a harmless glitch? We have less than 24 hours to find out.
