Big Brother Naija Ex-housemate, Niyi has described his wife as someone who always supports his dreams and goals.
While stating this in an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said he initially planned not to tell the housemates that he was married, but after bonding with the other guys on the first day he decided to not hide anything.
Speaking further, he said the reason he went for the show was to project his business to the world.
Niyi said: “The first reaction people get when a married man is on Big Brother Naija is a surprise. Beyond that, it is a reality show where one is supposed to live one’s life without any reservation, whether one is married or single. The major reason I went for the competition was that I saw a great platform through which I could project my craft and business (to the world)”.
“I never thought about being bashed for being a married man on the show. It was never an issue for me. I initially planned not to tell housemates about my marital status but after bonding with the other guys on the first day of the show, I decided to completely be myself and not hide anything”.
“My wife is a very supportive woman. She has always supported my goals and dreams. On the day the last season started, about three people called me and asked why I didn’t give BBN a chance. We (couple) were doing well on Tik Tok then. And I asked her if what she felt about me going to the Big Brother show. However, she was not familiar with the show and I also hadn’t followed it for some time. She thought it was a great idea and she encouraged me to give it a try”.
