How well can you sing for 1.5 million Naira and a 4-day all-expense paid VVIP trip to One Africa Music fest in Dubai? If you were on this table, you’d no doubt do your best to emerge as winner, right? Well, Day 16 in the 2019 BBNaija house saw a side of the housemates that had been locked up and hidden and Mike was the biggest challenge.
The Pepsi Know Da Lyrics challenge was given to the housemates by Biggie for them to prepare ahead of the Thursday Night Task presentation. It was quite amusing watching the Pepper Dem gang have a lyrical battle as they sang along to All Over by Tiwa Savage, Nwa Babyby Davido, Case by Teni and Green Light by DJ Cuppy x Tekno. While some took the challenge rather serious, others entertained us as they went about the rehearsals. Like Mike.
Apart from the fact that Mike didn’t know any of the songs for the challenge, he literally muddled up all the lyrics, couldn’t pronounce them well and cracked up his fellow housemates, even fans of the show who had a field day with videos of him popping up everywhere all over the internet.
One thing is admirable though. It looks like Mike is really here to compete. He stayed up all night to learn how to sing Nwa baby by Davido all thanks to Jeff and Seyi. That is an admirable character.

Fans were really impressed at the length Mike was willing to go to win the Task and drummed support for him while laughing hard at his funny singing. They also tagged all the artistes and personalities that were in the several songs he sang.

“That’s Mike for you, even though doesn’t know the songs he’s pushing himself limitlessly to learn. That’s why I love Mike he’s so positive, he believes anything can be done as long as you push yourself. That’s a mind of a successful person.”
