Traditional dancers received Lucy as she alighted from the car and made her way to the venue for the event. In a video posted on her Instagram page, the reality star was seen busting dance moves just like the dancers who came to welcome her.
Interestingly, that was not all to the celebration of the BBNaija star. In a video posted on her page, Lucy was sighted in a gathering of people who had all come together to celebrate with her. According to her, the gathering was put together by popular politician, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa.
For a reality TV show that’s not a regular talent hunt, it is easy to question the value BBNaija has for young people. For a majority of the viewers of the show, the value is obvious as alot of people agree the show holds great benefits for the youth by providing opportunities for success.
They believe the show provides young people with an opportunity to discover themselves, interact with others, and showcase their talent to the world. In addition, it launches them to stardom
