She got to realize how important having freedom is, as she was literally running mental nd loosing her mind for staying locked up in the house.
“What a journey it has been for me, I’m filled with so many emotions. I’m happy and thankful to @bigbronaija @dstvnigeria for the opportunity given to me to be on the show. First as you all know, I came into biggie’s house 2 weeks late. I stayed in the lockdown house longer than others did. One gill month in there, God’s grace kept me there… It was a long journey for myself @michael042sm @mrkayvee we thank God finally we got in. Thank you biggie. I can recall my stay in the lockdown house. All I did was cry, pray, work out, look out the window, and wish I could step out… unfortunately I couldn’t. That was when I realized what freedom really meant. I was literally running mental. I was loosing my mind. My anxiety was dealing with me. I wanted to give up. I wanted to go back home to my mom. But then one thing kept ringing in my head. Who will believe my story. That I was close to getting into biggie’s house but I opted out. Literally No one lol. Secondly Queen do you really want to give up after coming this close, do you want to do this next year? The answer was No, so I fought my anxiety, I fought my fears, I fought that noises in my head that kept telling me to quit and I made it to the house”.
