In an emotional interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, former BBNaija ‘Level Up’ housemate Chichi shared harrowing childhood experience, the reasons behind her involvement in the stripping profession, and her ongoing legal battle with her once-close friend, Phyna.
Chichi’s interview became emotional as she talked about a tough childhood marked by experiences that no young girl should have to go through.
She alluded to enduring both physical and sexual abuse, shedding light on the profound hardship she faced during her formative years.
Discussing her career as a stripper, Chichi explained that her journey into the adult entertainment industry was influenced by a series of deeply personal events that significantly shaped her life.
She expressed her belief that her unique story might be difficult for many Nigerians to comprehend or empathize with fully.
The reality TV star further revealed that she fell into a pit of depression and despair following a BBNaija reunion event.
She believed that the reunion was orchestrated with the intent to tarnish her brand, which led her to deactivate her social media accounts temporarily.
Chichi’s voice trembled with emotion as she discussed her legal action against Phyna, another former reality star.
She clarified that Phyna had made several damaging allegations against her, which prompted her decision to pursue a lawsuit.
In Chichi words;“I have gone through things a girl child shouldn’t go through. Just think of anything in your head, I have gone through that. I have seen it all, physical abuse, sexual abuse and all.
There is nothing that I have gotten that anyone gave me for free. The only thing I got for free is Big Brother Naija, cause I don’t know how it happened but I just thank God, because nobody ever saw something good in me even when I was a child.
A lot of things happened, that’s why I went into stripping, but a lot of people wouldn’t understand, because Nigerians aren’t ready to relate to my story.
After the reunion, I was depressed. I deactivated my Instagram, and even now I am on and off because it’s not easy for me.
After the reunion I was in a miserable state because I felt I went there to be destroyed, to be rendered useless – my brand and everything”.
