Badmus takes Housemates prize
Actress Eniola Badmus has emerged as the first winner of reality show Celebrity Housemates.
Since the show began on January 13, Badmus has been nominated for eviction numerous times but was always saved by getting the highest number of votes, consecutively.
Badmus was named winner about a week after two other housemates – Doris Simeon and Frederick Leonard – were evicted. She was the first participant to be unanimously voted in as head of house.
After winning the show, Badmus took to her Instagram to express her gratitude to her supporters. “I have been completely overwhelmed by the love and support I have received this past weeks on the show,” she said.
As an actress, Badmus has appeared in numerous films in both Yoruba and English.
Celebrity Housemates aims to promote the themes of unity and peace using “a convergence of culture, lifestyle and entertainment.” It watches as 12 celebrities live together in a mansion for 30 days to compete for a N7m cash prize and endorsement deals.
The show aired 24 hours a day on Dope TV. It also aired weekdays on WAP TV at 21.00; Silverbird Television at 20.30; NTA at 17.30; TVC Entertainment at 23.30; and PRTV at 22.30.
