‘BBNaija is all about connection’ – Fans react to 2017 throwback picture of Jackye and Rico Swavey

Big Brother Naija fans and lovers have questioned the ‘authenticity’ and criteria to getting selected for the popular reality television show.

After 2019 housemate, Jackye Madu shared a throwback photo of herself and BBNaija 2017 star, Patrick Fakoya aka Rico Swavey, on her Instagram page, fans and followers started asking how she, who participated in Pepper Dem edition knew Rico who first participated in 2017, See Gobe edition.

While some assumed Jackye must have tried auditioning several times since 2017 before being selected to participate in 2019 show, some others doubted and insinuated that so long as the pictures were taken in 2017, Rico who was there before her, linked her up with the right people.

There’s also every possibility that Rico and Jackye knew themselves even before the year 2017, although, the usual thought would always be that the both reality stars met during the audition which in Rico and Jackye’s case would be in 2017.

Going by some comments we came across on Jackye’s page, some users and fans believe that before someone gets the opportunity to participate in the show, there must be someone who does connect the other.


Take a look at the comments;

moeketsimathebula wonders, “I dont understand how people who know each other go into the bbhouse how small is naija someone enlighten me cause.. people who go in there most time they know each other”

yorubagirlLgirl_girl replied “@moeketsimathebula na

ijeomapamela0 replied “@moeketsimathebula Dnt mind them, 90% are with connection then 10% are by luck”

renomarieterez wrote, “How come you all know each other before getting into Big brother house… Naija and connection hail”

estheromonkhegbe noted, “Connectivity in this Big brother show shaa. na who you know”


In other news, Jackye’s boyfriend, Oluwasegun Kosemani on declared openly that his relationship with her has been called a quit. This according to Kosemani was as a result of Jackye being too nonchalant with her bluntness while talking to people about their relationship.

Tracing back in BBNaija house in 2019, Kosemani remembered the time Jackye told co-reality star, Mike Edwards about him being a cheat. The scars caused by those words still live to be remembered and he can be in a relationship with Jackye and see those words ring to his head.
