Bold Magazine has collaborated with DStv Nigeria to feature all the contestants of Big Brother Naija every week.

First of the series features Miyonse, who left the House two Sundays ago.


How would you describe your experience in the Big Brother house?

It was a wonderful experience, I got to meet 13 wonderful people. Being in the Big Brother house unleashed so many potentials I felt i did not have. I was beaming with confidence. I was a very shy person before i entered the big brother house, i am left the big brother house a different person.

The Miyonse we saw in the big brother house, would you say that is the same person we speaking to right now?

First thing first when you are in the big brother house, there is a blur between reality and strategy. You’re not even sure you’re doing you or you’re doing strategy. To a large extent I think I was being me.

Who was your favorite person in the house?

My favorite person in the house was Miyonse. I was and am my own fan. Aside Miyonse like I said there were 13 amazing people in there, how will i single out just one person. They all have different characters, different ideologies so I think they all amazing people. If I had to pick one, I would pick all 13.

Who was your least favorite person?

Big Brother’s voice. Mehn that voice creeped me out and it messed with my head a lot. Big Brother’s voice was my least favorite.

As a Chef what food items did you miss the most in the house?

Going into the house I actually thought i would have been able to show more of my culinary skills. I was sort of restricted in the house… I missed a lot of food items but shout out to Indomie for the support. To a large extent Big brother provided us with everything we needed. But as chef you need some serenren – some herbs and spices like basil, oregano, rosemary… so I would say I missed that the most.

What was the first thing you ate after leaving the Big brother house?

The first thing I ate after leaving the Big Brother house was a full English breakfast. After I was evicted I was really sad. I wanted the ground to swallow me. I just wanted to run away. Like i thought I would go beyond two weeks, I never thought my time in the house would be that short. So even when the breakfast came I was like “Make I just chop this food go sleep back jor”. The food did not go down well it was just in my throat.

What is the plan for Miyonse for the rest of the year?

There will be a Miyonse storm! And it is coming this way. I am coming up with a couple of cooking shows, I have willing sponsors to back me up. I am coming up with something unique, something unique to the Big Brother brand, something people would want to associate with. I am also interested in endorsement in the food and beverage industry.

I have gone to a couple of interviews and they are like I have this Nollywood thing about me, that I can make it in Nollywood. I am not adverse to the idea, however I am a Chef and I would rather push for that than anything else.

So you feel like you can be an actor?

Yes I feel like I can be an actor because at some point I realized I was getting to deep into my role in the house. At some point in time they were emotions attached. At some point in time there were no emotions attached but that was all part of the strategy to be honest.

    miyonse was cool while in the house and every housemate enjoyed his cooking skills and they were usually sure that something will be available to eat, so to eat will not be difficult for him and he should not be too attached to women as they are known to be responsible for the down fall of great men. TBOSS has moved on and that is exactly their nature.

    Love you Miyonse. May your career take the world by storm! You were too smart and intelligent for BB, you always think ahead of them that’s why they had to evict you. You are an awesome strategist with you lover boy role. BB and Nigeria didn’t know what they had till they lost you. Telemondo lost viewership during your stay in the house. Imagine now BB is forcing all the housemate to fall in love courtesy Falz motivational speech. Imagine those hypo critics Bisola and TTT now sleeping on the same bed and kissing, i think say their body na firewood. Idiot people!

    He’s modelling for a brand. You should have close your eyes or take them off his body. Hypocrites
