Pere Egbi, a former housemate of the reality TV show, Big Brother Naija, has recalled the moment, he was informed he would be a ‘Wild Card’ on the Shine Ya Eye season of the show.
In a tweet on Saturday, Pere revealed that his conversation with Big Brother took place around 3:30 a.m.
He tweeted, “By this time last year, I was in my hotel room in lockdown when I heard a knock on the door, a gentleman stepped in and informed me that Big Brother had chosen me to be a wildcard. I had that conversation with Big Brother around 3:30am (in) the morning! Good luck to the new set.”
Wild cards are fake housemates, however, if the real housemates are unable to identify them within a time frame, they become substantive housemates.
