This Is How Bisola Relates With Her Baby Daddy

Published

on

Big Brother Naija 2017 runner up, Bisola Aiyeola, opened up on her life, career and relationship, in an interview with Sunday Punch.

Background

I grew up in many places because we moved around a lot. As a child, I lived in Papa Ajao, Festac and Surulere, all in Lagos. I have many memories from my childhood. These include spending lots of time with my cousins and aunties, singing with them, and enjoying holidays with them.

Education

For my elementary education, I attended Stepping Stones Nursery and Primary School, and Nazareth Nursery and Primary School. I proceeded to Federal Government Girls College, Ipetumodu, Osun State, and Our Lady of Apostles Secondary School in Yaba, Lagos. Getting into higher institution was quite difficult for me but I was eventually admitted into the National Open University to study Entrepreneurial and Business Management. But I had to discontinue the course because I didn’t have the funds to complete it. However, I still have plans to further my education.

Ambition

I remember clearly that when I was 13, I was moving to another school and during an interview, I was asked what I wanted to become in future. I answered that I wanted to become an entertainer and my mother gave me a knock on the head, saying that I wasn’t serious and that I’d probably become a lawyer. But deep inside me, I have always wanted to be an entertainer. I cannot really say what stirred my interest in entertainment but my family is a very interesting one and we all love music, movies, etc.

Music

My first love is music, even though I feel comfortable with every other form of entertainment that I do. Music was what pushed me into entertainment. Right now, I’m exploring my music side and I would be releasing my EP soon.
Project Fame Academy

I did back-up vocals for some artistes before I contested in Project Fame. Though before Project Fame, I had attended some singing competitions, but they weren’t well publicised. Every moment I spent in the academy was memorable. Being mentored by Joke Silva, Ben Ogbeiwi, Gogo Majin, among others, was very motivating. They tutored us on how to be better singers and performers. I was a bit disappointed when I didn’t emerge the winner, but I met a lot of people and made friends.

Radio

Being a broadcaster with women’s radio, WFM, was quite an enlightening experience for me. It was my first time being on radio, though I had presented some programmes on TV before that. I eventually became the Head of Programmes so there were a lot of responsibilities on me. I learnt a lot of things from that experience such as being articulate, how to manage other people, among other things. I keep applying the things I learnt there to my everyday life. I left that job because I couldn’t juggle my acting career with working on radio. The timing wasn’t working for me anymore, so I decided to concentrate on my acting career. In future, I could still return to radio to present my own programmes.

Comedy

I try to make jokes about things that happen every day that people can relate with. Uploading those comedy skits online gave me some exposure. Some of the acting gigs that I got were on the strength of those skits because the directors had seen me in them and they had ideas of certain roles they felt I could play in their productions. I see it as my personal public relations company, advertising my work and my abilities.

Big Brother

I wanted a bigger platform to showcase myself and have a wider reach. I wanted to put myself out there more. I had actually been auditioning for the show for a while. It’s not like I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am, but Big Brother fastened the process.In the house, I learnt not to be afraid and not to limit myself. I also learnt to be more tolerant. I don’t want to talk about my relationship with Thin Tall Tony in the house because I have said enough about it already. I am still on good talking terms with all the housemates. However, some of my favourite contestants were Marvis and Thin Tall Tony. I have no regrets about my time in BBN.

Lessons

I have learnt not to relax just because you think you are talented. People wouldn’t automatically respect you for your talent; rather, you have to put in a lot of work to be relevant. You have to constantly work on yourself. I have also learnt not to ever give up.

Role models

My mother is my biggest role model. She inspires and constantly motivates me. We have our ups and downs but we do have a good relationship. Being with my family encourages me because they always push you to be better. They have always supported my entertainment career, and even my stint with Big Brother.

Daughter

I have an amazing relationship with my daughter. In fact, she’s my friend because we talk a lot. I think she is one of the best children in the world. I and her father are co-parenting and we still have a friendly relationship. I cannot say if there is any chance that we could get married in the future, because life is unpredictable and one can never say.

Ideal man

That would be someone who loves me, encourages me and motivates me. It has to be someone who would never judge me, and is a friend to me.

Fashion

I’m a jeans and sneakers kind of person. I realised that I cannot wear that everywhere and all the time but I love being comfortable. I love big earrings and I would say that’s my favourite fashion accessory.

Relaxation

I enjoy watching movies, and I also sitting down with friends to talk.

In her words:

“My wishlist was so short this year. I wanted just one thing: a bouquet. Wishlists do get shorter as you grow older. Lol. Also, when God keeps answering even the prayers you haven’t thought to pray for, There’s barely anything to wish for.”

BBNaija’s Khafi Issues Stern Warning To ‘Womb Watchers’

Published

I love you dearly, Gedoni tells Khafi on her birthday

Khafi Kareem

Popular reality TV star, Khafi Kareem has issued a stern warning to her eagle-eyed womb watchers on social media.

The reality TV star is fed up of people leaving pregnancy comments on her post and she has decided to give them a piece of her mind.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Khafi shared a photo of herself along with the words;

“The way I’m looking at the next person who drops a pregnancy comment on my post. Continue reading if you don’t want to get BLOCKED. (I’m not joking).
I’ve ignored them for the longest now but according to the womb watchers on social media I have been pregnant for over a YEAR. So let me get this off my heart. Some people have flat stomachs naturally and some people have big stomachs naturally. The latter is ME. And when I’m on my period it is even BIGGER. I don’t owe anyone a flat stomach but still I try to suck in my belly in every single picture and sometimes I do it better than others. The worst is that even when I’m proud of my ‘sucking in skills’ on a particular picture there is always SOMEONE who still comments something about pregnancy. This is a habit that HAS TO STOP. 

First of all, women are more than baby making machines. A woman’s fertility or decision to start a family is for her to decide, not for you to comment on in every single picture… Must our stomachs always be the first thing you look at?? 

Secondly, I’m not just speaking up for myself but for women in general. You may mean well when making pregnancy remarks but it is not always a compliment. For women who have had miscarriages, have been trying unsuccessfully for a baby, or simply conscious about their weight it can be very distressing, triggering and also puts a lot of undue pressure on them. So unless someone has announced a pregnancy or told you then please be nice and DONT COMMENT OR CONGRATULATE them on one.

Trust me when the time is right I welcome pregnancy (twins please Lord!) and starting a family at God’s time. But until I’ve said I’m expecting please stop with the pregnancy comments. I’ll have no patience for them anymore and any one who writes such comments will get BLOCKED.

To those who mean well, thank you so much, I do love you all But to the amebos please be amebos elsewhere It’s pressure enough being a woman, so let’s not add to it. Happy Sunday.”
