Ola broke the ice by declaring that after consultation with the House Doctor, he would like to Voluntarily Exit the Big Brother House. He said that he has thought about it and since the medication he is on does not seem to be taking well, would like to seek medical attention outside of the Big Brother House.
A sombre-looking Chris added that he understands completely. “Yes, this is a game. However, we can’t play with our lives.”
The two were instructed by Biggie to leave the Diary Room and speak to their fellow Housemates, to explain the situation.
The two Nigerian Housemates have to leave the House with immediate effect, seeing as their Voluntary Exit has been prompted by a serious medical condition that needs urgent attention.
Official statement from M-Net and Endemol
Whilst M-Net and Endemol are deeply saddened to see these two very entertaining housemates leave the game, they remain committed to ensuring the health and safety of the contestants and therefore understand and respect the Housemates’ decision. Further they would like to thank both the contestants for their contribution to the show and their participation and wish them well for the future.
