Fire on the mountain:

Kids are arranged into two circles, one with one more member than the other. When a signal is given, they begin to run in opposite directions singing “fire on the mountain, run, run, run” until a whistle signalling – “fire is up!” is blown. Then each player tries to get a partner from the other circle.

After the scramble, the player without a partner is penalised to do certain stunts or made to squat in the centre of the circle. The removal process continues until one pair is left and the pair are crowned the winners.  The name for this game varies across Nigerian cultures.

 

Tinko Tinko

Girls especially loved this one. It involves two partners facing each other, while the theme song is sang by both as the game goes on. With hands held half way up, they begin the game which involves interchanging of hands front and back and slamming of hands by both partners. In this game, a lot of clapping happens in this game.

Who Is In The Garden:

Here, the children make a big circle, starting with singing “form a big circle”. After that, the anchor then stays in the middle and runs in the circle singing, “ Who is in the garden a little fine boy/ girl (depending on the sex of the child) can I come and see him/ her, then everybody then responds “No” “No” “No”, then the anchor someone else and says “follow me”. This cycle is repeated until the last person remains, then others go in hiding while the last person goes searching for them.

 

Police and thief:

This was like Nigerian kids replicating action blockbursters. In this game, there are the good guys (police) and the bad guys (thieves) but the stolen object is imagined. The kids then divide themselves into two groups, then the police group will try to find and catch those people playing thieves.

 

Ten Ten:

In playing this game, girls stand facing each other and clap their hands as they move their legs to a rhythm. The goal of each girl during this game is to ensure that she does not raise the same leg directly facing the other girl – which means it is no problem for a girl to raise a left leg when the other girl raises a right leg. The moment a girl raises the wrong leg, the other girl scores a point.

Boju-Boju:

 This is the Nigerian version of hide and seek. Every other person goes into hiding and the person seeking will start by singing the song, ‘boju boju o…’ and after singing, he starts to chase and anyone he/she catches will be the next to seek. Every seeker starts his/her chase by sing the song.

    It’s genuinely very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, so I simply use
    internet for that reason, and obtain the newest information.

Avala and Isilomo have been evicted from the Big Brother Naija House

Recall that Avala, Gedoni, Khafi and Isilomo were the housemates with the lowest coins in the house and Big brother instructed them to pack up their bags and deposit it in the store room. Check out the video below.

Avala, Gedoni, Khafi and Isilomo have been asked to pack their bags in preparation for the eviction show as they have the lowest number of coins

See bbnaijaupdates’s other Tweets

It was the first time the housemates were faced with eviction and it was no surprise that they had their own theories and strategies on how things would pan out. The  housemates up for eviction were instructed to play a game of chance, where they had to roll a marble into a metal cup.

According to the rules, the housemate with the lowest number of marbles will be evicted. The buzzer went off and at the end of the game, Gedoni had 5 marbles, Khafi had 4 marbles, Isilomo had 2 and Avala had 3.

Earlier, Big Brother also instructed that Omashola and Ike should pack their bags because they broke the rules of the house by engaging in an altercation. Biggy has however decided to give Omashola and Ike a warning by issuing them a strike . He also reminded them that they have two more strikes left to be disqualified from the show.
