Leo, one of the evicted Big Brother Naija 2018 housemates, opened up on why he was voted out.

Recall that Leo, was on Sunday evicted alongside his strategic partner, Ifu Ennada after having the lowest vote.

Leo, however, claimed his eviction might not be unconnected with his pair, winning the Pepsi Roc Da Mat challenge and the Heritage bank Challenge.

According to him viewers of the reality show did not vote ”Lifu” because they felt they won two challenges and should rather vote others who are yet to win anything.

Speaking to African Magic, Leo said, ”Eviction was inevitable for us because we won the Pepsi and Heritage bank challenge.

”I mean we have a VVIP ticket, capital, money in the bank.

”So as a voter, the fist thing I will look at is that the pair ”Lifu” already have a foundation, so let us help people that have gotten nothing from the house.”

Leo Da-Silva recently announced the passing of his mother RMO Sanni after his exit from the reality tv show.

Leo shared his news on his Instagram. He shared a photo of his late mother, he captioned it;

“March 18, 2018. The worst day of my life. I lost my mother and I had to bury my mother today according to her Muslim rights. I remember the day of the Big brother auditions,you forced me to go, you said “you can win it for your business”. You said so far I’m myself, they will adore me. You set the pace for my life. You gave me everything.

Today I felt like I could not breathe. Your legacy is that of the greatest woman I have ever known. Rest in peace Alhaja RMO Sanni. Rest in peace legend. Thank you for everything. Till we meet again. 

Thank you to everyone that has supported me through this ordeal. I’m sorry I couldn’t pick calls.”
