Following this disqualification, a video of Debie-Rise kissing Bassey while he also slept surfaced online, with many Nigerians calling for the disqualification of the housemate.
The video kicked off a conversation with some viewers demanding to know why the housemate didn’t also get disqualified.
In an interview with Pulse Nigeria, Debie-Rise spoke about the controversial night and the supposed kiss.
“That night, we actually had a quarrel. I can’t even remember what it was about,” Debie-Rise said.
“I don’t actually know how to hold an argument, even when I had
something with TBoss and Bisola, I would go and meet them and say, ‘I’m
sorry, let’s just trash this thing.’
“I can’t even live with someone and then there’s this grudge that I’m keeping. I don’t know how to do that. I just can’t.”
“So, after the quarrel, he just went to sleep. So, that was me trying to clear – and he wasn’t actually asleep.
Bassey doesn’t sleep on time. And it was a peck.”
Debie-Rise and Bassey had an interesting friendship during their stay in the Big Brother Naija house.
