Enigmatic, sexy and voluptuous Nollywood actress, Ejine Okoroafor has sent out word to Big Brother Naija housemates to put behind them the bad blood that might have risen in the course of their interaction in the house and embrace peace.
Reacting to the viral romantic video of Tobi and Alex on the former’s birthday on Friday, the actress advised the housemates not to let their fans pitch them against one another and pointed out that their being in the Big Brother House might be fate in action for them to build relationships that would last forever.
“In a world where true friends are scarce, the lovely video of Tobi and Alex I saw this beautiful morning struck a chord in me. So, my advice to all these Big Brother housemates fighting one another is to give up, stop letting your fans strike note of discord, quench the bile, forgive and let love rule because, after all, we are in a small world where everything that goes around, comes around.
Sharing her own experience as a housemate at the Next Movie Star house, Ejine explained how she and Karen Igho became closest friends.
“I remember, back in 2008, during the Next Movie Star. I had met a girl – that has turned out to be my best friend – at the audition that held in Abuja and for reasons I guess was fate, we just clicked. At that time, my boy friend was going to UK for a short visit and I told him to help us buy sneakers for working out as requested by the organisers of the reality/talent hunt show. Again as fate would have it, we both made it to the house but for some reasons still unknown to us both, we drew apart and that saw me drifting towards Karen Igho during my stay in the house. Interestingly, immediately after the house we settled our little differences and continued our seemingly life-long journey of friendship. Ever since that day till today we have been best friends – though we have had our fair share of ups and downs but we have remained besties, sisters and she’s a life saver. For me, I can’t trade our friendship for any one”, she wrote on her Instagram page.
“For future contestants of BBNaija, money ain’t the only reward for being in the house, true friendship is also a reward and please be nice to everyone irrespective of their ways towards you. Remember, true friends are priceless,” she added.
