While speaking in an interview with the PUNCH newspaper, Big Brother Naija 2018 second runner up, Tobi Bakare, claimed that Nigerians voted 2017 winner of the reality television show, Efe Ejeba, out of pity, adding that he was so happy when he made it to the final three of the Double Wahala edition.
Tobi said, “Personally, I think that in the last Big Brother that held, people voted for the winner out of pity not because they really saw value or potential in the winner, that is just my personal opinion, I stand to be corrected.
“I was very happy because I knew that at that stage, anyone of us could emerge as the winner. We did not know the amount of love people had for us outside the house.
“I particularly wanted people to love me and see the values that I had because I knew that whenever I left the house, that is what people would still love about me.
“But as for me, I wanted to go to the house and let people love me to the extent that when I leave the house, I would be a mentor to other people based on my behaviour in the house.
“I wanted people to still want to know about the Tobi brand after the show and that was my driving force.”
