“N15k Stopped Me From Attending University, I used To Stylishly Beg For Food”- Says Bisola Aiyeola Of BBNaija.


In a recent interview with NAIJ, the former BBNaija contestant, Bisola Aiyeola, spoke about life after the show, how she wants to keep working to maintain her fame, her life before BBNaija and why she could not attend university.

Her words: “Looking back at Big Brother Naija… I wanted a platform, I wanted that wide reach. People send me messages from Kenyan, South Africa, Uganda, etc. On a normal day before I entered the house, how many people would have known me?

So yes, even though I did not win, I feel like I achieved my aim. Even if I won that money, it would still finish. Why she did not attend university

On why she did not attend university, I wrote Jamb and I was Jammed. It’s not like I did not try. I tried so many schools all over the country.

It’s not that I wasn’t passing the exams; it was a problem of not getting funds. I did not have money to pay for certain things. I was even duped when I tried to enter LASU. That pulled me back and all this just made me discouraged.

I also tried National Open University(NOUN) and you know it is very easy to get into NOUN, and at certain times yo needed to pay certain fees. Believe me; it was difficult to raise N15,000 at that time.

I just decided that all of my energy let me use it into using my talent to feed myself. Sometimes when there was no food to eat at home, I take my daughter to my neighbour’s house under the pretext of watching television and stylishly feed my daughter and myself.

That’s why I can relate to people because when you are down, you are down. But one cannot just stay down. I would love to help people get out of this type of situation.”
