Many people have said it is really an arduous task to fix former Big Brother Africa winner, Uti Nwachukwu, in any particular setting. Just when you think you have got the guy all figured out, there is always a part of him sticking out for you to put a tag on.

If you call him names, you wouldn’t be veering way too far from many others. He’s handsome, stylish,charismatic and voraciously ambitious. He is one of those guys who always get the girls. At least, that is the image the actor/ compere seems to ooze. But you are dead wrong.

“Of course, I am born again, I found Christ in 2006, I have always believed in Christ but I answered the altar call in 2006. But I must tell you I am not still perfect” he told Potpourri at the Warri Again show in Warri, Delta State on Independence day.

“ Being born again, means accepting Christ as your Lord and personal saviour. He didn’t come to the world for the righteous, Christ came for the imperfect ones like me and you. I genuinely want to change, Christ is right there soliciting and interceding for me, because he is the way, the truth and the life. People fail to see that it is we, the imperfect, that Christ came for, I am extremely imperfect. I am not the stereotypical type of born again, I am the type that is aware of the love and grace” he explained. When I asked him to explain what he meant by being imperfect, he highlighted a host of circumstances.“Personally, I would not want to have sex before marriage but sometimes you fall and when you fall, you repent and beg God for forgiveness; it’s not easy.
