BBNaija ex-housemate Niyi has disclosed that he never planned on telling his colleagues about being married but changed his mind after the first day.
Niyi supposedly speaking to Scoop disclosed that he never planned on telling the housemates he was married but then changed his mind after he was able to mingle with the guys very well on the first day in the house.
According to Niyi, how married men are perceived on the show is what made him decide never to mention that he’s married but then decided to be himself and not hide anything after spending the first night with the other guys in the house.
To him, going on BBNaija was an opportunity for him to sell his business and everything forgetting about the fact that he’s married just to mingle and do everything as a single person just as the whole show is.

Speaking about his wife supporting him with his idea, Niyi said his wife has always supported his dreams, and even though they were doing well on Tik Tok, she gave him the go-ahead and try his luck with BBNaija and that is why he went.
The first reaction people get when a married man is on Big Brother Naija is surprise. Beyond that, it is a reality show where one is supposed to live one’s life without any reservation, whether one is married or single. The major reason I went for the competition was because I saw a great platform through which I could project my craft and business (to the world). I never thought about being bashed for being a married man on the show. It was never an issue for me. I initially planned not to tell housemates about my marital status but after bonding with the other guys on the first day of the show, I decided to completely be myself and not hide anything
My wife is a very supportive woman. She has always supported my goals and dreams. On the day the last season started, about three people called me and asked why I didn’t give BBN a chance. We (couple) were doing well on Tik Tok then. And I asked her if what she felt about me going for the Big Brother show. However, she was not familiar with the show and I also hadn’t followed it for some time. She wife thought it was a great idea and she encouraged me to give it a try.
