Big Brother star and 1st runner up, Mike Edwards has taken to social media to give his fans insight into his life before and after the reality show.

In a lengthy post on his Instagram page, Mike reminisced what life was like before he made it into the Big Brother reality show.

According to him, he was just a homeless athlete struggling to represent his beloved country, Nigeria.  But now he can’t seem to walk into a grocery store or bank premises without drawing too much attention, as he continue to bask in his newfound fame and adjust to life in Lagos.

He also hinted at something big coming up, and promised to continue doing flash life updates on his transition back to Nigeria.

He wrote: “Since I’ve left Big Brother House I haven’t really explained what’s been going on and when my fans will get to see me next, so here’s a little update on the situation & my life overall. I’ve been out of Big Brother’s house 3 weeks now. I’ve stayed in 2 hotels, 1 apartment, and I’l be moving to another location soon.”

“I’m loving every minute of being back on home soil and spending quality time exploring Lagos with my beautiful wife, this city is so electric and fulfilling. I came with a goal to make the most of the opportunity of a lifetime and I’m embracing the uncertainty of it all. I’ve had to figure out how to maneuver in Lagos traffic. I learned that I can’t just walk into a local grocery store or bank because I cause too much attention, plus I hardly ever turn down a selfie with my people.”

“I’ve had some incredible opportunities present themselves already, and it’s exciting thinking about the plans. Taking a leap of
faith into the unknown is daunting, but it’s honestly one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

“I’m going to keep doing these flash life updates of how I’m transitioning back to Nigeria. I’m also working with my management @theofficialeme_ and road team on something big for my official meet and greet tour which I’ll be announcing ASAP you know me, I’m all about details so I can deliver the best ☺.”

“Once again thank you all for being so supportive and understanding with all of this. P.S It’s crazy to think last year I was a homeless Athlete fighting to represent Nigeria, and now I’m a household name. Gods Plan #ManLikeMike.”

The 28-year old athlete recently strung elegantly on Day 4 of the just concluded Lagos Fashion Week alongside BBNaija  ex-housemate, Teddy A and other amazing celebrities.
