Yerins, a Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye ex-housemate, has been verified on Instagram, following his eviction from the show.
Popularly known as Polymath, the ex-housemate became the first BBNaija contestant to be evicted from the show on Sunday.
Three days later, Yerins celebrated his verified page on Instagram by sharing a screenshot of the page with the caption, “Verified gang.”
With over 131,000 followers, Yerins becomes the second housemate with a verified Instagram account after Beatrice’s account ‘disappeared’ after verification.
Housemates and social media status
Asides Yerins, other housemates with verified Instagram accounts include Boma and Tega, with the former getting verified before his journey began in the BBNaija house.
Beatrice got her Instagram page verified on Saturday and fans took to social media to celebrate her as the first female housemate to be verified on Instagram.
However, the excitement was short-lived as hours late, the account, @beatriceofficial_, was disabled from the social media platform.
Beatrice’s team tried to receive the account but efforts proved abortive and the ex-housemate had to begin from scratch as a new account was opened for her.
That same Saturday, Tega, the only married female housemate BBNaija Shine Ya Eye season, also got her Instagram account verified.
