How the fans voted
Tobi was the last housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother House. He wished Miracle good luck and walked out of the house, leaving him with Cee-C as the last two finalists.
Miracle probably didn’t need Tobi’s good wishes as he minutes later, he was crowned the winner of BBNaija season 2.
He goes home with N25 million, an SUV valued at N12 million, an all-expense paid trip with one partner worth N4.7 million and a brand new home entertainment system that costs N3.3 million.
Miracle an aspiring pilot was declared winner of the show at exactly 9.08 pm Nigerian time. The housemate who met and fell in love with Nina on the show, had campaigned for votes, saying he needs money to complete his training to fully qualify as a pilot.
As soon as he was announced winner, other housemates joined him on stage and he could be seen wiping tears of joy off his face, when he managed to get back on his feet, after being knocked down in celebration by other finalists.
Miracle who had long stood out as one of the favorites on the show, only was asked why he started out keeping to himself. He explained that he takes time to observe before making friends.
For Cee-C whose fans have remained undeterred, voting massively to get her to second place,she wasn’t let off the hook by Ebuka. The famous show host relayed a question from fans to her on why she hardly takes the blame when there were misunderstandings in the Big Brother House. And the housemates replied that it is normal for her to blame others and not herself. Surprisingly Ebuka failed to ask her what lies in the future for her and Tobi.
