When BBNaija host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu asked the housemates during their entry show what they will most likely be getting involved in while in the house – Eric gave an honest answer.
The tall and built housemate who also disclosed he is single told Ebuka “Na relationship o” and he was clearly honest about it.
Fast forward to 5 hours later, Eric and another housemate Lilo have launched a romance so tight that it looks they’ve been dating outside the house.
In fact, loved-up photos and videos of Eric and Lilo are currently trending on Twitter.
Luckily for them, Nigerians seem to be in support of the new coupling and it might actually work in their favour and become an effective strategy that will keep both love birds safe from the weekly evictions.
At one point, Lilo, who appeared already far gone in love with hot boy Eric moved from touching his beard to going under the surface.
Poor Eric can be heard begging her to stop “putting her hand there” and not set him up.
Eric told Lilo: “Stop putting your hand der you are setting me up”.
