Doyinsola David aka Doyin, a former Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate, has revealed why Ilebaye Odiniya won.
She said that her friend won the reality show’s N120 million top prize because Nigerians dislike seeing disadvantaged people.
On Sunday night, Ilebaye, a 22-year-old Kogi-born model, defeated five other contestants to win the prize.
Doyin said in an interview with Sabi Radio on Monday that Ilebaye won due of “Nigerians’ underdog mentality.”
The host, Miracle OP said: “We’ve seen different types of strategies [in reality shows]. And I don’t know why people still do this where they isolate somebody. Once you isolate somebody, especially so early in the game, human beings, especially Nigerians have the mentality that if a group of people are oppressing one person, that one person is our hero. It’s the underdog mentality.”
Doyin concorded: “True. I think her [Ilebaye’s] storyline was meant to play out the way it played out.”
She, however, said she felt betrayed by Ilebaye when she went behind her back and made up with Venita after their altercation in the House.
