Nengi told her fellow housemate Ozo, he has no sense for saying she loves Kiddwaya because of his money.
Before this conversation, Nengi the Bayelsa born housemate has made it did clear to Ozo on several occasions that she doesn’t have feelings for him because she has a relationship with someone outside the house.
Nengi said she cannot be in a relationship with someone who has a prim and proper personality like Ozo, but she declared her admiration for Kiddwaya.
As viewers and some fellow housemates may have noticed that Nengi is growing tired and irritated by Ozo’s constant clinging on her.
Ozo told Kiddwaya that Nengi was calling him Godfather because he has money.
On hearing this Nengi became angry and told him he is stupid for saying that. In her word
“You don’t have sense, my friend shift, you don’t know to talk.”
