The handlers of ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Nina Oyenobi, have reacted to reports by an online television platform that she does not have a mind of her own.
It was alleged that the management team controlled the 22-year-old lady like a baby during the interview.
A member of the management team, who spoke to Sunday Scoop on condition of anonymity, said they had informed the interviewer earlier that they didn’t want questions on her sexual intercourse or relationship with Miracle during the Big Brother Naija reality show.
The source said,
“We have been managing Nina since she left the reality show. Before the interview commenced, we told them not to ask Nina questions on sex and they agreed to that. But the lady, who interviewed her, kept asking questions on her relationship with Miracle and she became uncomfortable. Though Nina was ready to reply the questions, we had to give her signs on what to say and they became angry. We did not control her as claimed; we just wanted to control what they put out since she is our client.”
On why Nina did not react to the viral report, the source added,
“When the story came out, we told her to ignore it. Our focus is on bigger projects; so, we don’t need such distraction. She granted an interview with another television station almost at the same time and there were no issues. The online media is just looking for relevance.”
