Excerpt from the interview with LILIAN Afegbai & her about life after Big Brother.
How will you describe life after Big Brother Africa?
Life has been fun. It has been different and adventurous. I have had more opportunities. I think generally my life is much more better because it has given me a rich platform to showcase myself. It is left for me to use the platform very well.
How will you describe the Big Brother experience?
It wasn’t easy. Before we went into the house, we were camped somewhere because of the fire incident. It was new, I have not really lived with that number of people. It wasn’t easy but I had to remain happy. I told myself that I should be happy. It was fun.
Were you optimistic the show would continue despite the inferno?
I am a very positive person. Whenever anything negative happens or any barrier crops up, I try to see the positive side of it.
What were some of the lessons you learnt from the show?
I learnt that you can never say you cannot do something without trying it out first. Big Brother explored the things you never believed you could do. I have learnt that you should give back to the society, no matter how small. Big Brother used the platform to help someone. I have learnt to give back to the society.
You didn’t stay long in the house, do you think there were certain things you did not do right?
I did not stay long in the house. It had nothing to do with what I was doing right or wrong. It was just unfortunate that I and Tayo were up for eviction the same time. It is always difficult when two people from the same country are up for eviction the same time. For me, I don’t think it was about doing anything right or wrong. Big Brother is about being yourself. I was just myself.
Any hard feeling that you didn’t stay long in the house?
No. Actually, like I said, I am a very positive person, I used it to my advantage. Since I came out, I have done a couple of endorsements. I have an acting job going on too. There is a reason for everything.
