How will you describe life after Big Brother Africa?
Life has been fun. It has been different and adventurous. I have had more opportunities. I think generally my life is much more better because it has given me a rich platform to showcase myself. It is left for me to use the platform very well.
How will you describe the Big Brother experience?
It wasn’t easy. Before we went into the house, we were camped somewhere because of the fire incident. It was new, I have not really lived with that number of people. It wasn’t easy but I had to remain happy. I told myself that I should be happy. It was fun.
You didn’t stay long in the house, do you think there were certain things you did not do right?
I did not stay long in the house. It had nothing to do with what I was doing right or wrong. It was just unfortunate that I and Tayo were up for eviction the same time. It is always difficult when two people from the same country are up for eviction the same time. For me, I don’t think it was about doing anything right or wrong. Big Brother is about being yourself. I was just myself.
Who were your closest friends on the show?
I have like two, three – Tayo and Small Pepper, the girl from Uganda, Esther. They were both real. I wouldn’t say it was because Tayo is a Nigerian. If the Nigerian was annoying, I wouldn’t make such a friend. Tayo was a friend, a brother. He will tell me to my face if I am misbehaving. Esther was a real girl, I love her so much.
Were you disappointed that Tayo did not win?
Yes, I was and I was sad. I was devastated, I was upset and angry. I was depressed but I thought about it in the positive sense. He is going to get bigger deal, he will get more than 300,000 US dollars. I believe in him.
Was that why you wept inconsolably?
Yes, because I was hurt. If Tayo was not real, I wouldn’t support him. When you see the truth, you wouldn’t pretend. Tayo is my hero, he is my winner.
Are you in a relationship?
No, I am not at the moment. I had a relationship. We broke up, parted ways. So, I am single.
