#BBNaija: “I’m rooting for WhiteMoney to win the show although I have four other favorite housemates” – Niyi, evicted housemate

Recently evicted housemate Niyi has disclosed that he is rooting for WhiteMoney to be the winner of the Big Brother Naija season 6 edition.


In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said, “The first reaction people get when a married man is on Big Brother Naija is 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 because 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.”

On why he stated that Beatrice and Angel threw themselves at him while in the house, he said, “Beatrice was very close to me and she often made statements that I am handsome. They were advances but I could not really tell if it was a game plan or if she was serious. However, I had made it known to all the housemates that I did not want to send wrong signals to anyone. As regards Angel, she came to the bathroom when I was having my bath five different times. However, I found out that’s who she is. She loves to ‘catch cruise.’ I understood her but at the same time, it was scary for me because anything could happen. I then told her that if she tried it again, she wouldn’t like what would happen the sixth time.”

Niyi also stated that though he was rooting for Whitemoney to win the show, he had four other favorite housemates—Tega, Saskay, Sammie, and Saga.

He also noted that he did not get well with Pere as they had different characters. He said, “He comes across as a person who doesn’t care about the feelings of other people, irrespective of the fact that we are playing a game.”
