BBNaija (S4): Ex-housemates join final Saturday night party
All evicted housemates were surprise guests at the final party of the ongoing BBNaija season four.
Nigeria News Agency reports that the final five – Mercy, Mike, Omashola, Seyi and Frodd – were shocked when they saw their former housemates in the party room.

In response, Dakore told them to remain humble as it was an attribute lacking in the industry. She also explained the power of positive energy.

“Surround yourself with people who genuinely love you. Surround your self with good energy,” she added.
Echoing her words, Ikedieze said, “Your creativity will take you far but your attitude will take you farther. Maintain a great attitude.”
When housemate, Mike asked Mr Ibu how he got his job. Ibu replied, “Jobs get me. I don’t get jobs. Whatever you are doing, do it well. All those things will meet you where you are.”
On her part, Osas told the housemates to create respectful boundaries and not let themselves be in situations they don’t want to be in.
She said, “You don’t have to be in any situation you don’t want to be in. It comes down to respecting yourself and being comfortable in that situation and flourishing out of it.”
Meanwhile Kemi Akindoju and Mai Atafo addressed the housemates on the importance of choosing a worthwhile career path after the house instead of going for the hype.
Akindoju said, “When this is over, it is important to ask yourself what you want to be remembered for.”
Also, Atafo told the housemates, “The worst thing is for you to want to do something trendy when you are out. Find something you are passionate about.”
