It was an emotional Friday in Big Brother’s house following Whitemoney and other housemates inability to control their tears and emotion during their mental health awareness task presentation.
This comes after Big Brother asked the housemates to do a campaign/jingle to advocate the importance of mental health awareness to the public.
KFN recalls that one of the ‘shine ya eye’ housemates, Kayvee was withdrawn from the reality show following his sudden display of mental illness in the house.
After the drama presentation was over, Whitemoney, Liquorose and some other housemates broke down into tears and wept bitterly.
The mental health task ended with most of the HMs getting emotional about their past experiences with mental health struggle.
Big Brother, however, asked that the housemates give each other a hug to console themselves.
See how some social media users reacted to this;

@belindaoma wrote “This is a topic people don’t even talk about. It is deadly and very real. I wish more relatives will understand that it’s not that the new mom is acting up, neither is she giving anyone attitude. This is something beyond her control. Most of us need to educate ourselves about PPD/PND.”
