Keen followers of #bbnaija season three are probably already used to the sporadic relationship of Tobi and Cee-C but nobody expected the duo of Leo and Alex to have a breakdown in their relationship.
Very few followers of the #bbnaija show saw the lightning speed blow that Leo inflicted upon Alex coming. The whole brouhaha started out very casually, when Big brother paired the discreet Leo with the bubbly Alex during the first week.
Despite having personalities that seem completely different, with Leo being the hands-off guy and Alex being “the life of the party” kind of a girl, these two had found their own ways to perfectly blend in. The duo seemed to have their own type of silent language, as one look was enough for the other to understand perfectly what wasnt said. Unlike the other pairs in the #bbnaija House, Leolex looked like a solid combination of care and consistency.
Leo had earlier on confessed that he believed that Alex had a soft spot for him, and that she liked him a lot. At the time he said that Alex was too young and fragile for him to toy with. Yet despite being unpaired and having formed new partnerships, whenever Alex was in need, like when she was tending to the twin dolls, Leo flew to her rescue within a split second. She didn’t have to utter a word for him to sense what she was going through.
Alex on her own part has always been herself, avoiding as much as possible any type of untoward games on any of her fellow #bbnaija housemates. No one in the House is immune to her hugs, which may explain why she has been criticised for having no concept of private space.
She found a confidante and friend in Leo whom she could easily laugh and cry with. The duo walked the same stride, shared the same food and same bed. It was inevitable that these two were bound to lock lips, like they did.
During bedtime, Alex straddled Leo and started caressing his face, before pulling the duvet as they engaged in a long deep kiss away from prying eyes. Well their activity caught Ifu Ennada’s attentions who cheekily pulled the duvet off them.
Unfortunately however, and in a move that was largely unexpected, Leo later told Alex that girls are not real, and that he was displeased with her behaviour, which made Alex burst into tears.
It was shocking ,given the fact that he had returned her kiss. Alex seened very hurt with his words and she cried her heart out ,so much so that even Cee-C came close to comfort her.
What’s more unusual was to hear Cee-C who only talks about herself give her a piece of advice. Still Leo said he didn’t mind sharing a bed with Alex.
