Big Brother Naija ex- housemate , and runner – up, Bisola Aiyeola sat down with NAIJ and she spoke about life after the reality TV show .
The actresses who says she ’ d also delve into the music industry too, has revealed that N15 ,000 hindered her from going to the university .
Here are Excerpts from the interview below ;
Looking back at Big Brother Naija …
I wanted that platform. I wanted that wide reach . People send me messages from Kenya , South Africa, Uganda , etc. on a normal day , before I entered the house , how many people would have known me? So yes , even though I did not win , I feel like I achieved my aim . Even if I won that money , It would still finish.
Why she did not attend university
‘ I wrote Jamb and I was jammed . It ’ s not like I did not try. I tried so many schools all over the country. It ’ s not that I wasn ’ t passing the exams ; it was a problem of not getting funds . I did not have money to pay for certain things. I was even duped when I tried to enter LASU . That pulled me back and all this just made me discouraged. I also tried National Open University (NOUN ) and you know it is very easy to get into NOUN , and at certain times you needed to pay certain fees . Believe me; it was difficult to raise N 15 , 000 at that time . I just decided that all of my energy let me use it into using my talent to feed myself . ’
How she used to go to her neighbor’ s house to ‘stylishly’ ask for food because she and her daughter had nothing to eat
Sometimes when there was no food to eat at home, I take my daughter to my neighbor ’s house under the pretext of watching television and stylishly feed my daughter and myself. That’s why I can relate to people because when you are down , you are down . But one cannot just stay down . I would love to help people get out of this type of situation.
Her plans for the future:
I have so many things lined up . Obviously I want to do more movies and music too . I did get into the entertainment industry via music but I put it on hold for a couple of years so I ’ m going to revamp that access . I also want to make my own films in future and I ‘ m an ambassador for the One Campaign Poverty is Sexist so I will be pursuing that as well.
