Viewers of the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality TV show, tagged ‘Pepper Dem’ hailed housemates after impersonating popular Nigerian celebrities for the party on Saturday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 19 housemates are each required to dress and act like celebrities for the night which drew massive admiration from fans of the show on social media.
The most noteworthy were Omashola as DJ Spinall, Seyi as Kizz Daniel, Thelma as Toke Makinwa, Mercy as Dencia, Mike as Jidenna, Esther as CeeC, Frood as Phyno and Ike as Rema.
Omashola got the most accolades from fans who said he “looked more like DJ Spinall and could pass as his twin”. To complete the look, the Delta-born housemate added the classic, signature cap the DJ is known for.
@Donjazzy tweeted, “Omashola already looks like DjSpinall. #bbnaija”
@Uaoboi said, “Omashola looks like DJ Spinall more than DJ Spinall looks himself #BBNaija.”
Meanwhile, Dencia and Jidenna, on Twitter, gave their seals of approval to Mercy and Mike for portraying them on the show.

NAN reports that despite the accolades gotten for impersonating celebrities, fans were disappointed by the behavior of housemates on the dance floor.

@Tonymoretholar said, “They said its pepper dem and DJ BIG N gave them hot hot periodt.”
@IdrisAishat2 said, “He nailed it. Have been dancing away my sorrow. Thanks to him.”
