The 2019 Big Brother Naija Reality took a turn for the worse on Friday when two housemates, Tacha and Mercy, had a heated altercation which degenerated into a “dangerous and dirty” fight.
In the clips of the fight which has since generated diverse reactions, Mercy and Tacha were seen wielding dangerous weapons like pressing iron and bottle while spewing vulgar words at one another.
This is not the first time that the housemates (past and present) would engage in such unruly displays, however, the BBNaija organizers had always warned that the show has zero-tolerance for violence and misdemeanour.
In reaction to this, a 2017 Reality TV Star, Ekemini Ekerette, fondly called Kemen, shared the rule book from the organizers.

Recall that Kemen was a controversial housemate during his stay in the “See Gobe” season. He received a strike for breaking the rules on Day 29. He was later ejected on Day 41 for inappropriately touching a female housemate, identified as Tokunbo ‘TBoss’ Idowu.
Kemen also noted that Mercy and Tacha’s prohibited behaviour is worthy of disqualification.
“I just want to know… If the particular BBN season has a RULE BOOK.
Cos I still have a copy of mine, and here is what it says about prohibited behaviours worthy of disqualification … It’s a game but rules make the players better,” Kemen wrote.

Also reacting to the controversy, another housemate who was also disqualified from the 2018 #Double Wahala season, Khloe, penned a lengthy statement questioning BBNaija’s organizers.
Khloe further criticised the organizers saying the show was all about money and she was, unfortunately, one of the scapegoats of the reality show.
