  1. Hello Patience thanks for your valuable contributions we really appreciate that.
    Firstly it’s not a competition, we’ve updated the post and added a few lines about what Nina does.

    About our take on top 10 most beautiful bbnaija housemates, Yes we know Nina is very beautiful, everyone can attest to that but unfortunately we could only go as far as 10 housemates. I am sure if the article was top 11 she would make the list.

    The reason why there is no much post about Nina and other former housemates is that we rarely create content on them, we focus mainly on the previous season. We love all ex-housemates equally

    Finally as regards our post on the most successful bbnaija housemate, you will notice it includes bbnaija season 4 housemates only hence the reason why Nina or any other housemates from the previous seasons were excluded.

    As regards been biased I can assure you that’s not my intention but thanks for pointing that out, I’ll change my article tone so it doesn’t seem that way. ❤️❤️

  2. Why didn’t you write what Nina does.i noticed your so biased when it comes to issues concerning Nina.She is an entrepreneur,she has featured in a couple of films which makes her an actress,she also represents so many brands incase you claim you do not know what she does.You wrote some articles few weeks back where you listed out the names of beautiful BBNaija housemates and as beautiful as Nina is,you never mentioned her name.You published another article about the successful ones and you still excluded her out of that list.She bagged so many endorsement that Alex never did but you managed to fix her name there.If you cannot publish an article without being biased then you need to stop.
