“My friendship with Tobi was just there. At least it was fun. He understood me to a great extent and there were times when I couldn’t go on, I wanted to give up and he was there. It was cool having someone that saw things the way I saw them and allowed me to express myself (much more than Leo did). With him, I wasn’t having to hold a lot of things back because when I tell him, he will be like, ‘I even noticed it myself’,” Alex said.
Still, she insisted that she did not want a romantic relationship with Tobi when Ebuka asked her if she would love them to be “more than friends.” She replied, “I won’t say I wanted more. Being very close friends, I don’t know what more I would have wanted when you are very close friends. I don’t want to date Tobi.”
Ebuka also asked if she felt like she betrayed Leo seeing that she immediately paired with Tobi despite crying when Leo was evicted. Alex said, “No, there is one thing I want to get cleared; for me, I don’t think I betrayed anybody or I hurt or did anything bad to anyone in the house. I actually feel like everyone that came close to me, I helped or I positively influenced their lives in and outside the house,” she said.
Nina on her own part, defended the story and further disclosed that Miracle told her about the sxx escapade story which Tobi leaked to him. She further disclosed that the conversation started off after Cee-C whose room was quite close to Tobi’s hotel room, told her she heard ‘so much things’. However the whole revelation made Alex breakdown on the show, and she also walked out. She also threatened to break the camera when followed by the cameraman.
The heat was obviously too hot for Alex as she eventually deactivated her Instagram page. At the point, it seemed like that was the best action for her to take as she was bombarded with different hate messages from fans who hd looked at her as ‘innocent’. However, not long after this, Alex bounced back. She has continued to be up and doing in her chosen field.
In a recent interview with The Nation, she opened up and revealed how she suffered a lot of backlash from people. She said: “Well, whether you are a celebrity or not, you get backlash from people knowingly or unknowingly. It just happened because mine is in people’s faces because this is what people go through every day but if I have to go through all these to set examples and be of good influence to people’s lives, why not? I can be the sacrificial lamb. I don’t mind. A lot of people are also going through this but I feel like at this point, I’ve seen everything that there is to see. There’s really nothing more that can happen that will shake me so much as at when I came out of the house till now. I am solid and will never fall by God’s grace. Before Big Brother, I already started to have backlash because in my school, I was popular to a great extent. And whenever you’re popular, a lot of people have opinions about you. So, in school already, they have opinions one way or the other. I think I’ve been used to people having opinions in my life – from my nursery school – because everywhere I go, I am always one of the top, either academically or personality wise. So I’ve been having backlash right from day one, although this one came with a bigger hit.”
When asked on her present relationship with men, she revealed that she doesn’t see men who send dms professing love to her as serious. She went on to reveal that before “Big Brother, if you asked me, I would have told you at 22 years because I want my child to look like my sister and close to Big Brother, I extended it to maybe 24. So, as it is now, I can even just be talking to you and just say six months, you hear Alex is getting married. If I see someone that I’m ready to spend the rest of my life with in the next one day or two days, fine.”
