Nigerians recently expressed their shock when the winner of the just concluded Big Brother Naija “Shine Ya Eye,” edition, Hazel Oyeze Onuo (AKA Whitemoney) announced that he’s choosing Niyi to go on his Dubai trip with him.
Niyi, as we all know, was a fellow housemate who left at the earlier stage of the game show. He was among the first housemate to be evicted. One of the privileges in his winning packages included an opportunity to select a partner for a two-person trip to Dubai.
Given the supposed feelings he’s said to have had for a female housemate named Jackie B, some Nigerians expected Whitemoney to have picked her as his partner for the trip.
Another large spectrum of viewers was of the opinion that he should have chosen Queen, who happened to be the closest housemate to him, till the last periods of the game. There were rumours of an expected relationship between them, after the show, but Whitemoey keeps making it obvious that “she’s just a friend.”
According to WM, the “bromance” between him and Niyi is made in heaven.
“Whitemoney na gay, you can’t tell me nothing.”
“This guy no send women o.”
“No wonder he did not pursue the little feelings he had for Jackie B. The guy is a f*g.”
This and many more were reactions from different individuals, with a great majority assuming that he’s gay.
If WM is gay, I don’t think it’s anybody’s business.
Personally, I think he did the right thing by not choosing queen because she was just looking for any popular person to ship within the house, and coming close to him was to be of advantage to her.
She was once asked about how she felt about him, and she replied with “he’s just my acting boyfriend for now.”
I don’t think WM is gay. I think he realized that was being used, and also felt Niyi deserved to go far in the competition. I also felt Niyi was evicted too early, and I didn’t like that. I believe that is the case with some of the viewers too.
Whitemoney, to me, has shown that he was not only brilliant throughout the game show. This decision outside the house has shown that he’s naturally smart.
