Big Brother Naija season 5 housemate, Trikytee who was among the top ten housemates last season has opened up on how he escaped depression after leaving the reality show.
In a new YouTube video, Trikytee shared how life became hard and deals were hard to come by for him.
According to him, the buzz surrounding him was at the highest after the first week he got out of house but after some months, the buzz went down and reality hit him.
He complained of how some of his colleagues were making deals and getting gifts from fans but he didn’t.
He says having faith in God made him avoid depression ……
“That first week after the show, you’ll be swamped with interviews and deals. In your mind you’ll be like ‘I’ve blown’ but after few months the buzz dies down and the millions you’re expecting wouldn’t start coming.
“The killer thing is when you start seeing your fellow housemates getting deals. Some receive gifts like cars, phones but in my case some people sent me pure water,” he lamented.
“Firstly, I told myself my story is different and looked at the long-term plan and don’t judge my life with what is happening now.
Secondly, I work extra hard to get things for myself since I was not receiving gifts from fans like other housemates usually do.
“Also, my belief in God helps me stay sane when those thoughts come to my mind. I concluded that it was the will of God for me to be on the show and that alone, is enough blessing,” Trikytee added.
