The former BBnaija housemate, Niyi Lawal, has said that he relocated his wife and son to Nigeria because of money.
Niyi, based in South Africa before joining the BBnaija’ shine ya eye’ housemate, has relocated his family to join him in Nigeria.
Niyi said in an interview that he has always looked forward to returning home, and the awareness the reality TV show gave him has made his decision easy.
“The opportunities I have now have changed everything for me. I also have business ventures to pursue here; basically, money convinced me to relocate,” he said.
Niyi also added that he is currently working on his fashion brand and show, with a new business and the family brand soon to be unveiled.
The former housemate noted that he became creative with his fashion choices after he found it challenging while growing up as a teenager to get cloth of his size, which made him give up on stores.
He added that he ended up having a phobia for fitting clothes because he knew they would not fit.
Niyi reacting to what some former BBnaija housemate said about him being under pressure living in a certain way, said, “Living a certain way depends on the individual. Nothing has changed about my way of life. The only pressure has been to succeed and consolidate my opportunities, which has always been the goal even before Big Brother. I’m insulated from any pressure.”
