BBNaija reunion 2021: No one said hello to Ka3na

Maybe we are exaggerating, but who else noticed the apparent snub of ka3na by the former BBNaija housemates on day 1 of the BBNaija reunion for 2021?

Though the BBNaija reunion for 2021 was poised to display anger, remorse and bitterness, no one expected such a flagrant display of hatred or enmity.

The BBNaija reunion for 2021 started with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu calling in seven former BBNaija housemates into the discussion room: Brighto, Dorathy, Eric, Ka3na, Kiddwaya, Laycon, Lucy and Lilo.

The above housemates trooped in the above order. They all displayed pleasantries greeting and hugging each other, but no one said hi or hello to BBNaija Ka3na.

One could have let it past, but when Ebuka called in the next set of former BBNaija housemates, none of them exchanged pleasantries with the Boss lady, BBNaija Ka3na.

The actions that occurred while they were in the house and the exchange of words that ensued later could explain better.

BBNaija Reunion 2021: Love triangle or square

The host of the BBNaija reunion for 2021 made it known that they will kick off the BBNaija reunion for 2021 by discussing one of the famous relationships in the house, which involved BBNaija Nengi, Ozo and Dorathy.

The love debacle between the trio was termed 'a a triangle' by Ebuka. Ebuka then proceeded to ask BBNaija Ozo what he felt about the relationship between him, Nengi and Dorathy.

I saw Dorathy as just a friend - BBNaija Ozo

BBNaija Ozo made it clear that he never felt there was a triangle between the trio. BBNaija Ozo also emphasized that he understands the reason people might feel that way.

According to BBNaija Ozo, Dorathy was the first person he felt connected to in the house, and that's why they became close.

Ozo also noted that from day 1, he was clear about the girl he liked in the house; according to Ozo, BBNaija Nengi was the only girl that met her criteria when it comes to attraction.

Ozo did mention that finding out that Dorathy was part of the people that nominated him made him furious because he cannot do the same thing to Dorathy.

In summary, BBNaija Ozo said he only saw BBNaija Dorathy as just a friend.

BBNaija Dorathy denies having feelings for Ozo

BBNaija Dorathy denied having love feelings for Ozo. BBNaija Dorathy claims her relationship with Ozo was purely platonic as she never expected more from Ozo.

BBNaija Dorathy was then confronted about why she asked Ozo to stop talking to her if she never had feelings for BBnaija Ozo.

BBNaija Dorathy attempted to clear the air by stating that the decision was made because Ozo always put her in a spot she never liked, affecting how viewers see her.

BBNaija Dorathy accused Ozo of going back and forth in her relationship with Nengi and revealing any advice she gave Ozo to Nengi.

BBNaija Dorathy now went ahead to clarify that the above made her look like she never liked BBNaija Nengi.

BBNaija Prince supported Dorathy's narrative even though the duo was not on speaking terms.

On the contrary, BBNaija Wathoni explained that if Dorathy had no feelings for Ozo as she claimed, she should not have had issues with Ozo going back and forth and complaining to Dorathy about Nengi; that's what ordinary friends do for each other.

Wathoni's assertions did not sit well with BBNaija Dorathy, who later slammed BBNaija Wathoni, telling her to ...shut the hell up because it's not her fucking business. 

The love triangle exposed during the BBNaija reunion for 2021 turned into a square when Prince was brought into the battleground.

In a move to elicit more reactions, Ebuka brought the tango between BBNaija prince and Nengi into the discussion.

Ebuka asked why the relationship between the duo did not germinate to fruition.

To her credit, BBNaija Nengi accepted she did like Prince at first but did not want to continue with the relationship because she felt Prince was not loyal in friendship.

Prince later accused BBNaija Nengi of being in breach of her values; at the time, she was going back and forth with Ozo and other guys in the BBNaija house.

On another note, Nengi confirmed that even outside the house, she never got close to Dorathy. Nengi revealed that her relationship with Dorathy is just formal.

BBNaija reunion 2021: Ka3na exposes Ozo

BBNaija ka3na was the centre of attention when he made a revelation concerning BBNaija Ozo.

If you can remember vividly, the last BBNaija lockdown party, Ozo, snubbed Nengi, which made the latter cry afterwards.

Ozo was also seen dancing romantically with Ka3na while refusing to say a word to Nengi.

Now, during the BBNaija reunion for 2021, Ka3na revealed that all the above was a purposeful act orchestrated by her and BBNaija Ozo in a bid to make Nengi jealous.

According to the former housemate Ka3na, below is what transpired between her and Ozo before the Saturday Night party:

While we were lodged in a hotel, Ozo came into my room looking down. He told me that after his eviction from the BBNaija house, he realized that his fans and family were disappointed in him. 

Ozo now told me his plans, that she needs my help to make Nengi jealous. I was hesitant at first, but while we were in the car going to the night party, I told Ozo, I'm in; let's do this.

Still, on the BBnaija reunion for 2021, Ozo denied the above accusation stating that she cannot be that petty to make Nengi jealous because there was no need.

To support Ka3na's accusation, Praise retorted that though she has no love for Ka3na, he can confirm that he did go into Ka3na's room only to meet Ozo and ka3na talking about something.

Praise said he never heard what BBNaija Ozo and Ka3n were discussing, but he got the vibe that they didn't want him to follow the conversation because they stop as he walked into Ka3na's room.

In summary, the BBNaija reunion for 2021 has come to stay; let's watch and see as more events unravel.
