Big Brother Naija 2018 is over but the world is talking about the controversial housemates, Cee-C and Tobi, whose tumultuous relationship kept viewers glued to the screen for 85 days.
The duo spoke about how they hurt each other, why they are still hurting, and their career plans.
See the excerpts below.
Asked why she was frustrated with Tobi, Cee-C said: “I feel like he is an adult, you should be able to see things for yourself. You shouldn’t form an opinion based on what people tell you, People say want they want to say.”
Asked if she was surprised to discover she was the Queen of Double Wahala, she said: “I’m surprised to hear that, I felt like I was doing my thing. All that happened was just Cee-c being Cee-c. Honestly, when I came out and I saw some of the videos I was shocked and surprised to see what I did. Though I started watching from Bigbrother house, when we are about to get a strike biggie show us the video.”
And what she thinks of Alex meddling in the CeeBi drama: “The only thing I have against Alex is the fact that, you are a woman for God sake, you sit with him and discuss your fellow woman, giving false information about her . So I don’t think Alex snatched anybody from me, Tobi was never mine in the first place. The only thing I frowned at was Alex gossiping about me with Tobi, she painted an ugly picture of me and for whatever reason she did that, I don’t know.”
Asked how she feels about the things she said to Tobi, she said: “I used certain words at Tobi which weren’t good. I shouldn’t have acted that way, just realized there are better ways to talk things out without insulting anybody. Not the fact that I express my anger, but the way I expressed it.”
Asked how he feels, if he would work more with Cee-C in the future, Tobi said: “As far as been professional and working together, definitely I’m sure we are both open to that. Nothing stops us from been cordial, but at the same time we are human beings. You saying we just drop whatever happened in the is like asking us not to be human and that’s not fair, if you ask me. I mean, we are human beings, definitely lines were crossed, things were said, and things were done.
“And it’s different when you come out of the house and you apologize genuinely for the things you did, like oh!! whatever thing I did or said that was me playing a game, outside the house sorry that wasn’t me , it was a different ball game sorry, then we access the whole situation and be like , okay it’s was just a game. But when you come out and even almost after leaving , you getting the same vibe, same responses, the same verbal interaction, it’s no more a game. That is the real situation, the real you, so I’m not upset, I’m not angry.”
“For me it was a ‘let it out’ you know when you are angry with someone and you have exhausted you energy, you will be like come and give me a hug and everything will end there. I was thinking we would get to that point but we didn’t. What will end all this is a genuine apology, bigbrother quoted one and she apologized for that, but that wasn’t the first time it was going to happen. It was more like the 3rd time, at a point I almost felt like, yo mehn… it’s like this thing is partial, Bigbrother you are seeing this, this is not right. You don’t apologize for the one Bigbrother saw, if you want to apologize, you do it genuinely, and you apologize in totality. If you want to change as a person, you acknowledge and accept your mistakes, apologize and then try to be better, that’s just it for me.”
