Nengi was left in shock last night when she walked in on lover boy, Neo, washing his love interest, Vee’s panties in the Big Brother Naija lockdown house.

Neo and Vee had issues yesterday September 23, and to pacify her, he joined her while she washed her undies. To make her happy, he took over the washing while she spread them after he had rinsed them.

While they were discussing, Vee called Neo’s attention to the fact that one of her panties was missing.

A surprised Nengi said ”Ahh ahh, Neo, you even wash pant join”. She then turned to Vee, telling her she is a lucky girl.

Responding, Vee said ”My dear, he knows I am a clean b*tch”
