The first runner-up of Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye, Roseline “Liquorose” Omokhoa Afije has revealed why she participated in the BBNaija reality TV show.
In an interview with Abisola Alawode, the reality TV star argued that although she had a large Instagram followership of over 700k, it didn’t translate to money as she had financial issues.
Liquorose, who is also a professional dancer, said her need for financial stability informed her decision to take part in the show.
She said: “I had financial issues. I needed financial stability in my life. People don’t see that, people don’t know that.
“They just see that ‘oh‘ she has over 700k followers, what’s she going to look for in the Big Brother Naija house?”
Until her exit from the House, the former BBnaija housemate has continued to receive gifts from fans with the most recent being from an Ukraine-based fan who sent her N1million cash and some designer bags as well as loads of other gifts.
