On Sunday, March 19, 2017, ThinTallTony became the sixth housemate to leave the Big Brother Naija house.

During his stay in the house, the former housemate who is married with two kids had kept his marital status a secret and was romantically involved with Bisola.

In an interview with Pulse Nigeria, TTT shared his reasons for not mentioning his marriage to his fellow housemates. He also spoke about his emotional campaign which had him strip on Live TV.

On keeping his marriage a secret

Before I went into the house, I discussed with my wife. We agreed that my family should not be part of the show. She said, 'Tony, I want the world to know you for who you're, as creative and talented. I don't want them to see you as a loving dad with kids.'

Just as you said, we are very sentimental, so it doesn't go off like 'na we make am win out of pity.'

'You want an opportunity to expose your craft? This is it. Expose your craft. Leave the family out of it, but, if it backfires, then we have an opportunity to explain why we did what we did [his wife had said to him].

First, it wasn't to Nigerians, it was to the housemates. I wouldn't have taken it that far, actually Gifty started it. She brought in her family, emotions and all that.

I said, 'you know what? You wanna go all out? Let's go all out.' I think it was at that moment that everyone actually stood up and said 'you know what? this boy is competition.' Because, it has taken even a lot to want to be on the show, and I think that was my best point to let everyone including the management know that, if I say I want to do something, I do it.

6'7 and proudly 'made in Naija,' TTT is a choreographer who performed at the opening of Big Brother Nigeria first edition in 2006.

His popular works include the critically acclaimed "Heartbeat the Musical."
