During an interview with Pulse, the housemate, who viewers assumed had feelings for Bambam during her stay in the house, said he only likes her a friend.

"Yes, I liked Bambam, but not the kind of intimate like that she shares with Teddy A. I just like her as a cool friend," he told Pulse Nigeria during an interview on April 10, 2018.

"I mean, she is talented, she is creative, and she is a very cool person in a whole. I really liked her from that aspect, just as a good friend. But do I have intimate feelings for Bambam? No, I don't think I do."

According to Rico, he knew Bambam before the house - on a professional level - and would prefer to be just friends with her.

"Before Teddy A or anything else, I had known Bambam outside of the game, and we had worked professionally on a track.

I just knew her from the professional aspect,  I didn't know her from the real aspect; like who Bambam really is when she is not singing [or] who she is when she just wakes up from bed.

I didn't really know her from that perspective. So, I think getting to know her from there, I understood that the relationship I would prefer to share with her would be just a mutual friend relationship. And we do have a mutual friend.
