Jaypee And Lukay Get Evicted From The House #BBTitans

Jaypee And Lukay

They came in alone but left together: this week’s evictees from the Big Brother Titans house were Jaypee and Lukay, team name Jaykay, whose journey came to an end three weeks into the game. That leaves 20 housemates in the running for the grand prize of US$100,000. To quote co-host Lawrence Maleka: “Housemates are playing a game… and only one can win.”

Surviving eviction this week were nominees Khosi & Miracle OP (Khosicle), Nana & Thabang (Thabana), Marvin &Yaya (Maya), and Blaqboi & Ipeleng (Blaqleng) – who went from Head of House to knocking on eviction’s door.

After being shown who had put her up for eviction, Jaypee said to Lawrence: “The only one I am surprised by is Nelisa. But I nominated [her] before, so I guess it’s karma.”

Lukay, the other half of Jaykay, was upbeat upon eviction, telling co-host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu: “There’s a silver lining to everything in life. To be taken out this early in the game means that I’m a challenge and a threat.”

This week was a relatively calm one compared to the one before. For their wager, the housemates put on a cooking show, Titan Food Experience, which impressed Biggie enough for them to nab their second win in a row.

The icing on top of the good vibes cake was the much-loved and always-trending Saturday night party, this time officiated by the legendary DJ Tira. This week’s HoH were Blue Aiva & Kanaga Jnr (Kaniva), with the former beefing with fellow housemate Nelisa. When asked about that by Ebuka, Blue Aiva said: “I feel like she’s an instigator.”

There was also tension between Marvin and Kanaga Jnr this past week, with Marvin upset that ‘his boy’ Kanaga Jnr had nominated him for eviction. When quizzed by Ebuka during the show, Marvin said his pain stemmed from the “big connection” he felt the two had.

What did Kanaga Jnr have to say for himself? He nonchalantly told Ebuka: “My reasons are coming from a personal angle, and I will not be able to share that.”

As Lawrence said at the beginning of the live eviction show: “It’s been three weeks of gossip, conspiring, betrayal and drama.” He’s right. So, what does the next week have in store for us? There’s only one way to know. Ziyakhala wahala!

Spotify’s EQUAL program supports female artists, giving them a global platform through playlists, content hubs, and partnerships. Nigerian Afrobeats artist Ayra Starr, known for her hits such as Rush, Sability and Rhythm & Blues, and more, takes the spotlight for Spotify’s EQUAL Africa and EQUAL Global program this May. She joins fellow Nigerian Tiwa Savage, who is the only other African artist to be both the Spotify EQUAL Africa and Global artist.

Monica Kemoli-Savanne, Spotify’s Senior Artist & Label Partnerships Manager, Sub-Saharan Africa says, “Our commitment at Spotify is to support and empower women in the music industry, helping to create a more level playing field. Seeing artists like Ayra Starr come from the continent to gain global recognition serves as a true testament that Africa is full of talent, all that is needed is a platform. It has been a great journey to witness the growth of female artists who are also inspiring generations to come, which also speaks to our commitment to equally support female artists.”

Spotify hosted 15 EQUAL activations and over 14.8 million artist discoveries stemmed from EQUAL playlists, and EQUAL artists received 11,800 editorial playlist adds, all in 2023, further demonstrating the program’s impact and reach.

Ayra Starr whose February release Commas already has over 35 million streams on Spotify, spoke on her expressive musical style that has helped her craft a niche in the music industry, and what it means to her being selected as Spotify’s EQUAL artist.

“I am grateful to become a Spotify EQUAL Ambassador. It means so much to me to be able to represent women in Afrobeats and African women in general. There are so many women in music right now and the EQUAL program is doing a great job in highlighting their hard work.”

Ayra Starr to delve deeper into her music and creative journey:

How is the Spotify EQUAL program significant, from your perspective?

There are so many women in music today, behind the scenes, in front of the camera, musicians, sound engineers, all these women working hard and Spotify EQUAL is doing a great job in highlighting all their hard work.

What does this mean to you as a person, being Spotify’s EQUAL artist for the month both from an African and Global perspective?

It means everything to me because I am a girl and I have to support my gender and level the playing field.

To someone who has never heard your music, how would you describe the sound, tone, and style?

I would describe my sound as highly vibrational, eccentric, unique, and beautiful.

Are we expecting any music from you anytime soon?

Yes. I have a new single with Seyi Vibes called ‘Bad Vibes’ and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. It’s amazing and it’s one of those songs that makes you feel good. The best part about it is that it is not just a regular Afrobeat record, it’s like genres intertwined.
