Jackye Madu has put her name on the winners’ list by winning the Pepsi ‘Know Da Lyrics’ Challenge today.
After a long battle that went on for an entire day, Jackye’s lyrical prowess, hard work and persistence has paid off as she won the Pepsi Know Da Lyrics challenge.
This week’s Head of House Esther gathered all the housemates in the lounge and announced that all lyrics with them should be placed into the Pepsi box provided in the diary room as instructed by Big Brother.
Esther later collected the cards from them to put in the box on their behalf, as the Head of House, you know.
It was then time for the challenge and as instrumentals to the five songs played in the background, each of them was called out to perform his part.
After a few minutes of relaxation in the garden, the housemates gathered again in the Lounge by Big Brother.
When the challenge began, the housemates made sure that they put up their best show but unfortunately for Mercy, Khafi and Sir Dee, Big Brother was not impressed at all and so they were disqualified for singing when it wasn’t yet their turn.
This did not go well with Mercy as she went into the room and immediately started crying, it actually took the interference of Tuoyo and Nelson who petted her before she finally calmed down.
But no sooner had the two left when she started again. She wouldn’t leave the bed until her lovely Ike showed up. Other Housemates came to meet them at the dressing room where they all gave reassuring words.
Following 30 minutes break, the second phase of the challenge began and for not singing their own part of the songs properly, Tacha and Thelma were also disqualified.
While Tacha saw the disqualification as one of those things, Thelma was sad. In her words, “Which of the challenges have I ever won? But just when I thought I got this…”
This was followed by Frodd, Ike and Gedoni’s. Then, Esther, Mike, Tuoyo and Omashola were also out of the race.
Jeff, Diane and Nelson were the first to get dropped from the final round leaving Seyi and Jackye to slug it out.
Ending initially in a tie, Seyi and Jackye had no choice but to continue till there was a last (wo)man standing.
A keenly contested challenge saw Jackye being announced as the Winner.
Her winnings include 1.5 million Naira and a 4-day all-expense paid VVIP trip to One Africa Music fest in Dubai.
