BBNaija ex housemate, Chukwuemeka Okoye, aka Frodd, was just a regular young Nigerian with bright dreams till he participated in the reality TV show in 2019.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Frodd noted that his life changed after the show.
“After BBNaija, life changed for me. I was overwhelmed by the love I got. At first, it didn’t seem real until it continued for months. I then embraced the new status and began to work on my goals. I became an influencer and brand ambassador to some big names. I have found my talents in the entertainment industry as an actor and master of ceremonies. I also established my company last year”
On the lessons he picked up during his time in the Big Brother Naija house,
“I learnt to be humble, persevere and never jump into conclusions. I also learnt to deal with personal issues and not to judge a book by its cover. BBNaija taught me that grace exists.”
Frodd also said that the lockdown was a period of reflection for him. He added, “I was already used to being indoors without luxury, so the lockdown was easier for me to handle as I also needed my space. The celebrity lifestyle is often choking but the lockdown has given me time to review my options. I learnt how to cook some delicacies and joined new social media platforms such as Tik Tok and Triller.”
Frodd also stated that the biggest career sacrifice he made was allowing his father convince him to quit modelling.”
