Calabar born Big Brother Naija housemate Bassey Ekpenyong was evicted Sunday from the show.

Bassey polled a paltry 9.80 percent of the votes placing him fourth behind fellow housemates, Tboss, Bally and Debbie-Rise who were also up for eviction.

A lively Bassey told host Ebuka that he has no regrets about his time spent in the house and struggled to keep his emotional side in check.

Debbie-Rise broke down in tears when Bassey left but Bassey denied a chance of any amorous relationship with other housemates stating clearly that; “I have a girlfriend.”

However, he said he was going to find former housemate Uriel and hook up for a business idea she had shared earlier.

Bassey is the younger brother to Effiong Ekpenyong better known as ‘Double E’ who launched a campaign for his stay in the house.

Also, hospitality outfit Vanel Bar launched a campaign for Bassey with the manager Ekeng Inyang saying he has no regret supporting Bassey using a corporate outfit.

“I like Bassey and his eviction will make the show boring” Ekeng told CrossRiverWatch in an unofficial conversation.

Meanwhile, the publisher of entertainment media outfit,, Hope Obeten said that the failure of ‘Team Bassey’ to realise the potential of advertising on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook may have been their greatest undoing.

“Bassey is gone and am not surprise because we thought campaigning for Bassey in Calabar will keep him in the Big Brother House. We ignored social media influencers, believe me or not Big Brother Naija will be won on Twitter. Follow the trend on Twitter and you will atleast know the 3 finalist. The team Bassey campaigners failed to understand the dynamics of social media” Hope posted on is Facebook timeline.

The show is scheduled to end in two weeks.
