Ololade Olajide, aka KayVee, one of the housemates in Big brother Nigeria “shine ye eye” edition, who left the show due to mental challenges has spoken up on his experience while in the house.
In an interview he had with Saturday’s beat, KayVee clearly revealed that he wasn’t feeling welcomed in the house and found it hard to blend.
“One of the reasons I couldn’t blend in quickly was because some of the housemates had bonded already before I came in, so I felt like an outsider. It was hard for me to blend in because they had created their cliques, then I came in like a random person that was trying to fit into a society.”
He also stated that he felt that he talked too much as he had seen some of the housemate discussing it.
“I can’t pinpoint the time I felt like I could not continue the show anymore. What really happened was that while I was getting to know the housemates, it looked like I was talking too much. I was hearing rumours in the house that I was beginning to talk too much, so I had to restrain myself from talking too much. I didn’t want it to seem like I was trying to steal the show from them. That’s one of the reasons I was triggered. They did not really accept who I was.”
The 26 year old photographer further revealed that the love he got from people outside restored his courage and confidence.
“A lot of people said they cried when I left the house. It’s not bad for them to be sad but they knew I had to put myself first. Some people had banners on their cars just because of me and that made me so happy. It was one of the things that restored my self-confidence.”
