Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Neo Akpofure, has said that his life changed tremendously after he participated in the reality show sayinghe initially tried to keep his relationship with his girlfriend and co-contestant on the show, Vee Iye, out of the media.
On what attracted him to Vee, NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt that the model told Sunday Scoop, “Her confidence was very sexy to me and it made me fall for her. Then, the way she talks. I could listen to her for the rest of my life. Her beauty is enchanting and she is very intelligent and focused. Although we share a few things publicly, we still try to keep our lives private. When one has someone that special, one can’t help but show her off.
“Every day, I am thankful for the ‘correct’ life I am living now. In 72 days, my life went from zero to more than a million— from grass to grace. I have always wanted to model and promote brands that I am passionate about and right now, I am doing that. Imagine getting paid to do what I love? If this isn’t the dream, I don’t know what is.”
On the recently concluded BBNaija reunion show, Neo said, “It was a chance to correct some of the misconceptions about me and of course mend fences with some people I considered friends. But we all saw that some people came with premeditated plans and vendetta to trend and chase clout. I hope they got what they wanted. I left the reunion in a good place with everyone I consider my friends and I am very grateful for that. I will always make them proud.”
Neo, whose fans presented him a cash gift of N2m and a Mercedes Benz car on his 27th birthday, sais the love he received made him the happiest person alive. He said, “Honestly, I felt something fishy was going on when my fans called ‘The Neo Tribe’ invited me for a birthday dinner. I have been blessed so much since I left the house, but my greatest blessing is the fans I have. They had an inclination that my favourite car is Mercedes Benz and they bought one for me. I am a very grateful and humble person. Their love and gifts made me the happiest person alive. The future is bright, I know that for sure. I have several things I am working on and I look forward to sharing them with everyone. Expect greatness and ground-breaking achievements because that’s all I drive myself towards every day. If I am given an opportunity to go into the house the second time, I won’t change anything I did because that was my reality.”
