Popular superstar, Jidenna recently paid a visit to the BBNaija house and he even had the chance to interact with other housemates.
The host of the reality show, Ebuka, initially took him around for a tour while the housemates were put on freeze mode, but Jidenna later came back for proper gist with them.
He spoke about how his family members have been speaking about the things going on the house and how social media has made them very popular.
Asked about being a housemate in the house, Jidenna said he knows it is difficult and even if he might try to be real, there will still be psychological effects because people are watching.
Jidenna is currently in Nigeria for the listening party of his album ‘85 To Africa’ which is billed to take place in Lagos on Monday, September 2, 2019.
Good luck to him.
