He recently had his say during an interview with the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, his wife is someone who always supports his dreams and goals, and he is very lucky to have her.
Niyi added that he initially planned to not tell housemates about his marital status but all that changed after he bonded with them.
His words, “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.”

Ebuka, the most popular housemate for several weeks into the show and widely believed to emerge the winner was the seventh housemate to be evicted; many viewers blame the Joe’s Fan Club (JFC) for his eviction. Joe himself was soon evicted from the show.
Big Brother added another twist to the game on day 79 by cancelling the day’s scheduled nominations and making the housemates believe they will instead be evicted based on their performances on assigned tasks while in reality no more evictions were held and viewers began voting for the winner who turned out to be 26-year-old Katung Aduwak.
