Ex Big Brother Naija Housemate Bassey who was given the boot on Sunday last week is back home and wasting no time pushing his brand. Recently he went for a chat with #99 .9Fm Beat FM’s Olisa Adibua and Mario Okan and their chat touch on varied issues; Life before Big Brother, his “relationship” with fellow housemate Debbie Rise, ThinTallTony and his controversial strategy and a host of other things.
Excerpts from the interview
Did he tell the housemates about his girlfriend?
“Yeah! Debbie knows, everybody knows.
Before I decided to tell anybody about that, I thought about it. Tayo [Faniran] was at Big Brother Africa and he had a girlfriend who was pregnant for him… and he was there till the final.
The reality is what matters; it’s not bad for you to have a girlfriend. It’s not bad for you to be in a relationship.”
How his girlfriend felt about the show?
“She is [was] scared. She was paranoid; she was like, “so, everybody will be seeing your body? These girls will now be touching you!”
If he knew TTT was married?
“Sincerely, I got into the house on the second week, so I thought introductions were already in order during the first week.
I wouldn’t just jump into any issue when I’m not invited and I didn’t have that opportunity at any point. Like I said: Tony is a grown man and he’s a really good person. I’m sure he knows why did what he did.”
Did he keep quiet because it wasn’t in his place to tell TTT?
His job before entering the house?

“Before Big Brother Naija, I used to act. I have done a couple of stuff of TV, commercials too. So, that’s what I used to to before Big Brother.”
His relationship with Debbie Rise?
“My relationship with Debbie Rise is based on trust..and I respect her so much. I like the fact that she is a very creative person; she brought out a part of me I would probably not have brought out to the fullest.
And that chick taught me how to play guitar in one week. I had never pulled a string before but she taught me in one week, and so I respect that. I didn’t want to give in to the pressure of having to be emotionally involved with her because Big Brother is short-lived, and after the house what happens?
I find her attractive. She is sapiosexual.”
If he finds her attractive on the ‘erotic’ level?
“Oh, no. Maybe because I didn’t want to be emotionally involved with anybody in the house. So, I placed everybody at a certain level which was good for me to be able to relate with them.
DebbieRise is so beautiful! [But] I have a girlfriend.”
What he thought of TTT’s conduct at the house?
“Tony is a very well-spirited fellow. I’m sure whatever happened was just part of the game.”
Who he hopes will win the competition?
“I am hoping DebbieRise wins, but based on what I’ve heard from the outside world, I think Efe and Bisola are on the rise.”
What his family thinks of his participation in the show?
“They are very proud of me.”
