A housemate in the ongoing Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye, Kayvee, has been withdrawn from the show.
Management of the reality show cites health issues as the reason for the development.
This was announced via a brief from Big Brother, read by the Head of House, Pere, to all the housemates on Monday.
This is the first in recent times in the reality show which is in the 6th edition, that a participant in the show is asked to withdraw on health grounds.
According to the brief, Kayvee has been advised by medical personnel to withdraw from the show due to health issues.
“Housemates, Big Brother trusts that you are all well and settling into the brand new week.
“As you have noticed, your fellow housemate Kayvee has been unwell for a few hours now.
“During this period, he has consulted with the medical doctor and has been advised to withdraw from the show to take care of his health.
“Based on this advice, Kayvee will no longer be part of the show for this season.
“Kayvee would like you all to know that he appreciates the time spent in the house with everyone. Your friendship, support, and love truly means a lot to him.
“Big Brother would like you to assist Kayvee with packing his bags and belongings and place them in the store room immediately.”
The announcement may have unsettled a number of housemates as they were seen in tears while parking Kayvee’s belongings.
Watchers of the reality show say, Kayvee have been withdrawn emotionally in the last 48 hours.
Some of the housemates who attempted to speak with him and help him reconnect, left disappointed as he seemed already deep in the detached mood.
