Former Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Beatrice Nwaji, has said she wanted a woman to win this season because it would be a win for all women.
Speaking with the Punch, the model said:
“To be honest, I was already tired of being there at the time I got evicted. Funny enough, when I told my mom I was going for Big Brother Naija, she was so excited and said I was going to win. I told her I wasn’t interested in winning and that if I spend a week or two there, I would be happy. I would have preferred a woman emerged the winner because I am a woman. A woman winning is a win for all women.”
Nwaji also opened up on why she didn’t have any intimate relationship like some others on the show.
“I did not have an intimate relationship on BBNaija because I wanted a real one. I was still observing and didn’t feel a need to jump into one and faking it. I wanted a platform to showcase myself with regards my fashion and modelling career and also have a ready audience to promote my other products and services.
As a matter of fact, I had to keep the news of my entry into the show, a secret, as required by the organisers. This got some of my friends, especially the influential ones, upset. I only told my mom.”
