"I was shocked, for a while, I thought IK was joking with me" - Nigerian Big Brother Hotshots rep, Tayo Faniran can't seem to get over his loss.
Nigerian Hotshots rep, Tayo Faniran isn't done expressing his shock over the Big Brother Africa Hotshots results. Tayo who lost to Africa's choice, Idris, has expressed his shock once again in an interview with 'The Nation'.
According to Tayo, he was shocked when Idris was announced the winner; "I was shocked. For a while, I thought IK, the show’s host, was joking with me".
Read excerpts from interview;
When Idris was declared winner of Big Brother Hotshots, what was the first thing that went through your mind?
You see, when we were all in school, we all knew who the best students in the class were, and when someone who was the best student scored 70, we would say, haba, this person should score like 90. Idris himself knows I won, but he only got the money.
When we got on stage and were shown the highlights, I saw myself and I was laughing. In fact, everybody was entertained. The way people cheered when they heard my name assured me that I was winning already, so when Idris’s name was mentioned, I was shocked. For a while, I thought IK, the show’s host, was joking with me.
Like Uti made a return trip to the house back then, would you mind to go back to the house if the opportunity arises?
Did Uti come as far as I came the first time? No, he didn’t. I don’t think Uti got as much love as I got the first time either. But I wouldn’t want to go back in there. When I was doing an interview in South Africa, one of the officials tried to mention it, but I said no, I don’t have three months to sacrifice anymore.
