The bone of contention was Doyin’s refusal to help Level 1 Housemates with notes on their debate.
In a bid to put finishing touches to their Weekly Wager Task, Rachel called Doyin out for going to bed early and not informing her as she was waiting for her. Rachel’s point spurred the two-time Head of House, Eloswag to go into a war of words around Doyin’s lack of team spirit.
The heated argument started when Doyin gave her fellow Housemates a little push-back after Sheggz who was part of Level 1’s debating team for the Afrofuturism Task fell ill. The scramble was on to cover Sheggz’s part and to develop a script around some points for the incumbent debate counterpart to recite. When a call was made for Doyin to chip in to which she retorted, “it is not my job to come up with anything. I have come up with my own, nobody assisted me!”
Rachel’s reminded Doyin that the only reason she ended up doing her part by herself was because she decided to go to bed last night without even informing her, yet she was waiting in the lounge so they could working on the debate. Eloswag called Doyin out for her lack of team spirit which didn’t go down well with her. Doyin quickly circumvented Eloswag’s accusation by asking, “ok, why are we wasting time by arguing when we can start working on it?” Eloswag, not wanting to let the argument go without getting his point across said, “you should have told her yesterday before going to bed.” referring to Rachel. Doyin, refusing to back down told Eloswag that she can sleep whenever she wants and that no one can control that.
The argument between the two reached fever pitch, which prompted the rest of the Level 1 Housemates who were in earshot of the squabble to step in and calm the situation. After Chomzy tried to get to the bottom of the ongoing fight between Eloswag and Doyin, Rachel who was trying to explain her side was overpowered by the elevated levels of Doyin and Eloswag’s voices. Doyin queried why she was the one singled out for sleeping, to which Eloswag replied, “because you are the one who made the rule!” His response was lost on Doyin who insisted that she was not the leader. Level 1 HoH, Eloswag then yelled back, “what leader? there is no leader!”
What are your thoughts about Eloswag’s leadership skills? Do you think this argument could have been prevented?
