Recently evicted Big Brother Nigeria contestant, Leo Dasilva, has said his mum encouraged him to apply for the competition. In a chat with Punch he said,“I do not feel bad that I was evicted from the Big Brother Naija House. I went on the platform so that I could put my business out there and I think I was able to do that. I provide services for people and the more I’m known, the better for my business.
That was the reason my mum made me to go for the audition . If I was able to win the grand prize, it would have been a big bonus but I am not disappointed; that’ s how God wanted it to be. I was the only one in the house who didn ’ t unpack his luggage because I knew that I could live at any time . I just wanted to sell the real me ; I made up my mind not to lose myself because of the money. At the end of it all , my mum was very happy and she said I made her proud . ”
Speaking about who he would miss the most in the house , Dasilva said, “I would miss Alex most . She was devastated when I left the house and that made me very sad . Even after the competition , we are going to continue being friends. She is a very amazing person and I am not going to push her out of my life . Unless she doesn’t want to be my friend , then, I would have to let her go . I pray that she would win the competition . ”
Asked to define the relationship he had with Alex because many felt it was deeper than friendship , Leo said , “There were a lot of misconceptions because Alex and I were very close. I was the only one that knew how much talent she has. I was the only one who constantly encouraged her because I saw beyond her playful persona. That was why we were very attached to each other. She is someone I would have loved to pursue something serious with but I have other priorities at the moment.
However , I am not in any relationship yet . Right now , I am friend with someone whom I really like and I am hoping that it can grow further very soon. Meanwhile , he kept mum on if his love interest is the one whose picture was recently circulated on the Internet.

K1 To Sponsor Kid Artist’s Education
In what looks like a divine arrangement, Fuji Music Legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate has thrown his weight behind Oluwatobi Ilelolawa, the 12 year-old Primary Six pupil, who sketched President Muhammadu Buhari’s portrait with pen (Biro) without alteration few days ago.
Less than an hour after THISDAY Newspapers’ Brands and Marketing Editor, Raheem Akingbolu published the story of the boy on his Facebook page, K1, through his publicist, Kunle Rasheed, reached out to the writer. K1, the father of modern Fuji Music said he was touched by the story of the boy and offered to sponsor his post-primary education to the university level.
K1 described the boy as a raw talent that must be guided, supported and not allowed to waste.
“I was touched when the story was brought to my notice and I see it as one of those things one can do to impact the society. Education is key to success and who knows the boy we are talking about may be a governor or President in the making. He may become another Ben Enwonwu, Bruce Onobrakepya, Wole Soyinka or an international Artist of repute in the future. If the society fails to give him the needed support now, posterity will not forgive us. This is the time to lift a hand and groom a talent for posterity.”
Meanwhile, arrangements are being made to introduce the promising artist to his new benefactor and perfect ways through which his mentorship and sponsorship would be handled.
Na Una Papa Get Stroke, No Be Me — Nollywood Actor Mr Ibu Blasts Rumor Peddlers
Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has debunked trending social media reports that he has been plagued with stroke.
The new media was awash on Thursday with reports that the 57-year-old iconic actor was hit by a mysterious stroke shortly after he returned from a trip to Owerri, Imo State.
The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, was even quoted as saying that “the actor was fast recovering”.
The sad news generated deep concerns from industry watchers, especially fans of the actor, calling for prayers and support for him.
However, in a latest video published on his Instagram Page, Mr Ibu, who is seen “loving up with his wife”, flayed the stroke report, saying he has handed those peddling the rumour to God.
He said: “Oh God! People are saying that I have stroke, that I am down with stroke. Why?
“How can you announce somebody’s sickness and you have many, you don’t even announce one.
“I don’t have any stroke please. This is my wife, my humble wife. Well, we hand over everything to God.
“I have been receiving calls from across the world, and I don’t know who is spreading this false news about me. I don’t know what they are saying. Na their papa get stroke.”
