They were the second romantic relationship in the house after Miyonse and TBoss, one of which (Miyonse) quickly got evicted and their relationship ended. Initially, the two seemed more like good friends without any hint of romance.
However, later as they went further through the show, the bond between them only grew, and soon they were totally inseparable. During the couple games on the show, they were constantly winning. The fact that fueled the rumors about their supposed relationship was their marriage in Big Brother house! They became the first couple to “get married” on the show, even though this wedding was not real – it was just a part of the weekly challenge organized for the contestants.
Despite the wedding being fake, the fans were expecting their relationship to become the real one beyond the walls of Big Brother house, especially after Efe opened up to the fellow contestant Bisola, speaking to her about his feelings towards Marvis.

Efe and Marvis after BBNaija
Both Efe and Marvis have given comments about each other after they left the Big Brother house. Efe spoke about his alleged girlfriend in the interview, and he spoke very highly of Marvis but admitted that they had not brought their relationship to the next level. He said that he kissed Marvis in the house because they both wanted it, but he is not the type to play with women’s feelings.
According to Efe, they both liked each other, but the main reason why they did not continue their relationship was that Marvis had a boyfriend, at home. At first, Efe was convinced that Marvis was not serious about her taken status, but later Marvis confirmed the news to him, and he knew that he would not make any further moves on her.
Efe said that he does not want to go to Port Harcourt to visit Marvis because he is afraid of her father. He said that he currently does not have a girlfriend and that he has different priorities. Efe confessed that he is not interested in relationships right now.
Marvis said that she did not know where this romance would lead, given that Efe now has money and fame. But she admitted that she is still friends with both Efe and another housemate, Bisola. They even appeared in her music video for the song “Vibe”. When asked about her boyfriend who she was together before the Big Brother, she openly confessed that they have some problems, as he was not happy seeing her kiss Efe.
Both Efe and Marvis are still young, and there is no doubt that they want to focus on their careers before settling down. Of course, the Nigerian public instantly marries everyone who seems to have chemistry on the screen, but sometimes things do not work out exactly how people want them to. We hope that Marvis and Efe will find their personal happiness, if it is with each other or not.
