Former Big Brother Naija housemate Erica Nlewedim has talked about life in the house with a lot of cameras monitoring everything they did.
Speaking in a podcast as a guest, Erica talked about how she felt when she was locked up in the Big Brother Naija house with other housemates. She also talked about the incident that led to her disqualification from the BBNaija house. She stated that the cameras in the BBNaija house felt like she was in a prison.
Speaking on the violence against another housemate, Laycon, and her disqualification, Erica said she said what she said because it wasn’t easy for her to stay in a lockup place with cameras monitoring their every move. She also disclosed that some of the housemates had to change their personalities because they were being watched but she went as an open book.
“‘I Said What I Said. It is not easy to be constantly conscious of cameras every time. Obviously, one knows that cameras are there but one can’t be acting or trying to be on one’s best behavior all the time. It is very stressful. One can do it for the first two weeks but at some point, one would get tired of it. Some people changed but I was just the same. This is how I am.
I show myself the way I am. Sometimes, I felt I shouldn’t have shown a particular person a particular side of me but I consoled myself with the thought that we would soon be out of there. I protect myself in the real world but in that world (BBN), it was more like a prison.”
