After the workout sessions and breakfast was done, the Housemates sat to their routine game of Whot, and with the game getting heated up, the doorbell rang. The door opened and in walked Desmond Elliot, renowned actor, celebrity, politician and ONE AFRICA ambassador accompanied by ONE AFRICA Director Nachilala Nkombo.
The Housemates were presented with goody bags that contained their individual name branded ONE t-shirts and fact folders with all the information about the One AFRICA campaign, and they all sat in the lounge to elaborate further on the #GirlsCount campaign.

Coincidentally, this visit is happening on the international Womens’ day and the Housemates all took time to celebrate great women who have impacted their communities and Nigeria as a whole. With 130 million girls around the world suffering from deprivation of basic education and other social ailments, it was very essential that the plight of the girl child and women as a whole be emphasised.
Before the visit was done, the ONE AFRICA ambassadors not only encouraged the Housemates to celebrate the girl child and women more, but they also Tasked the Housemates to read through their materials and come up with a presentation defending the rights of the girl child in lieu to sensitising the world even more and ultimately alleviate the plights of the girl child and women in general.
The ONE AFRICA ambassadors will return to the House later this week to assess and judge the Housemates’ individual presentations with the winner becoming a ONE AFRICA ambassador immediately and will also get a chance to present their case to world leaders globally.
