It is the end of the road for Yerin and Niyi as they become the first housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother Naija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ TV show.
This is coming after two weeks stay in the Big Brother house that witnessed series of drama and fun moments too.
During the live eviction show on Sunday evening, the show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, put out the suspense in the air when he announced Yerin as the housemate who is going home to their family.
It was quite an emotional moment for the other housemates to watch one of them leave.

Medical doctor Yerins describes himself as “a perfectionist, creative genius, lover of art and poetic rap music”. He sees himself as a renaissance man who isn’t confined to one profession or career.
The 27-year-old enjoys drawing, playing chess, listening to music, and making it too. He also has plans to write a medical book in the near future. He identifies himself as a fun loving, creative and curious person – and says his curiosity has helped him to garner expert knowledge in many fields, from modelling and digital animation to fashion design.
The high point of Yerins’ life is when he graduated from Medical University in the Ukraine and finally got to see his parents for the first time in 9 years.
