I felt disrespected by Giddyfia, Amaka’s closeness—Diana

A recently evicted Big Brother Naija (Level Up) housemate, Diana Edobor, said she felt disrespected by the relationship between fellow housemates, Giddyfia and Amaka.

Recall that Diana had struck up a friendship with Giddyfia, and along the line, she told him that her roommate (Amaka) was also interested in him. However, she felt uncomfortable when Giddyfia and Amaka started getting closer.

In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “Giddyfia and I were close from the moment we met. Amaka later told me she liked him, and I told her I would talk to him on her behalf. I was talking to him but I did not know they were ‘engaging’ each other already. Meanwhile, I already liked him by then, and I was going to tell about my stance. However, I discovered that she was already talking to him, and when I found out about that, I just let them be. For me it was disrespectful that we did not even talk about the situation.”

On the things she learnt from her time on the show, the France-born Nigerian said, “Being in BBNaija taught me that smart phones and social media are not compulsory in one’s life. I thought that (being away from phones and social media) would be the most challenging thing about being in the house but I did not even remember my smart phone. The show also humbled me.”

She also admitted she faced some cultural barriers while on the show because she did not grow up in Nigeria. She said, “Even before going on the show, I knew I would face some culture barriers with other housemates. But, I was ready to learn new things from them. There were some experiences I could not relate with, for example when the housemates shared their NYSC experiences. The housemates also did not understand my story and they made me feel like I was not Nigerian.”

Talking about what people should be expecting from her, she said, “I am working on a beauty and skincare business. I am also looking to join the entertainment industry. I want to go into Nollywood and try TV presenting as well.”
