TV reality star and 3rd runner up of the Big Brother Naija 2017 show, Debie-Rise, in an interview with Naij revealed the true status of her relationship with Bassey and the rest of the BBNaija housemates.
She also talked about her time outside the house and the steps she is taking to ensure she becomes a star in the Nigerian music industry.
See excerpts below:
Whether her experience on Nigerian Idol was responsible for how long she stayed in the BBNaija house
No, it was completely different. Idol was a musical show where we basically sang when we were asked to. But BBNaija was very different and besides, I wasn’t the only one who had been on a reality show. Efe, Bisola and Jon all had the experience.
Why the N25million wasn’t the main motivation for her being on the show
When my mentor visited me on the show, he said winners do not go for the money. The money comes to them. Money is a motivational factor but it wasn’t really my goal.
On her sisterhood with TBoss
The day the Kemen issue started was what marked my relationship with TBoss. When the housemates did not take her own side, I felt it wasn’t fair so I just wanted to hear from her. I was happy I was there for her all through the show. She never ‘rode’ me and even outside the house we are still friends.
On her relationship with Bassey outside the house
Bassey and I are working and I know that we are making progress. I know his girlfriend so we just have an understanding . I connect very well with Bassey creatively.
