BBNaija Doyin admits being ‘fake’ on reality show

Published

Controversial Big Brother Naija reality star Doyinsola Anuoluwapo David, simply known as Doyin, has admitted that she “faked” her character during her first appearance on the reality show in the ‘Level Up’ edition in 2022.

She disclosed this while featuring on a recent episode of the CreativiTEA podcast hosted by Lynda.

“My first run wasn’t my best run, to be honest. I have been on the show twice, and I came out of the show, and I hated it. I was fake. I came out with the narrative that Doyin is too mature. She is always trying to talk things out; that’s not really me oo. In real life, I fight,” she confessed.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Doyin recounted how a brand terminated her contract because of an interview she granted.

The reality star said, “There is no bad or good brand. I had a brand that dropped me. They had signed me and paid me the money, but they called and asked for a refund, and it was because of an interview I did. And to be fair to them, I deserved to be dropped because why did I talk?”

Doyin was among the former Big Brother Naija housemates that returned to the House for the All Stars edition last year.

She was heavily criticised for being “a talkative”.

After her eviction, Doyin claimed that Nigerians are not ready for a reality TV show, slamming fans for voting against her because of her outspoken nature

Controversial American rapper, Kanye West has been sued for sexual harassment, breach of contract and wrongful termination.

Lauren Pisciotta, who worked as his assistant for two years, said she was fired in 2022 and that a 3 million, £2.4 million, severance package was never paid.
Pisciotta is accusing West of sending her vulgar texts and performing sex acts over the phone with her.

According to reports, Pisciotta was primarily supporting herself via an OnlyFans profile in 2021 when she met West, and he was initially comfortable with her continuing her OnlyFans business.

However, in 2022, he allegedly offered her $1 million to delete her only fans account, stating that he wanted her to be “God-like”.

She alleges that she was bombarded with explicit text messages from West, including pornographic videos after she closed the account.

Pisciotta also claims he masturbated while talking to her on the phone and that, on one occasion, he pleasured himself in front of her after “trapping” her in a private room on his plane.

Pisciotta is seeking damages for alleged fraud, unpaid wages, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

At the time of filing this report, West has not responded to the allegations and has maintained his silence ever since.
