Love, they say, is a beautiful thing. But, only if it stands the test of time, some might add.
The Big Brother Naija reality show has provided entertainment for many Nigerians, especially the youth. It has also served as a place where many love stories have blossomed.
Reality TV star and artist Saga has confirmed that he and Nini are now engaged.
A few weeks ago, there was a proposal video that led to speculation about Saga and Nini’s engagement, but neither of them had confirmed it officially.
During an interview on Arise TV 360, Saga confirmed that the proposal was not staged, even though there were rumors suggesting otherwise. He made this confirmation while discussing his preparations for his art exhibition titled “Subtle Reflection,” which will take place in Lagos between April 13th and April 30th.
In his words; “Even we don’t know the date we are getting married, so everybody should please chill. Just to clarify, it wasn’t a skit. I’m not so jobless that I would wake up one morning and start proposing to someone and kissing, and all of that just to make people laugh or what. The thing is we had a brand engagement for the wine brand, earlier that day, and I already planned to propose after the shoot. The only link was that it was the same day. But it wasn’t a skit… Yes, the video is true, but you people should please allow us to live our private lives. We’ll appreciate it.”
BBNaija housemates who found love in Biggie’s house
Some former Big Brother Naija contestants have gone on to become couples. Some of them got married, while some of the relationships crashed. Saturday Beats takes a look at them.
Mercy & Ike
The winner of the fourth season of the reality show (Pepper Dem, 2019), Mercy Eke, and another contestant on the show, Ike Onyeama, became an item while in the house, as they were often in each other’s company.
Their love seemed to be so “strong,” and at the time, Eke stated that their love would continue smoothly even after the show, despite insinuations that she would ditch him upon leaving the house.
She had said, “I was single before going into the house.
“But now, you should expect love and friendship (between me and Ike). We will work as partners. Money has nothing to do with the love we share. Money has nothing to do with our relationship. “It won’t affect us.”
The couple even went on to host a reality show together called “Mercy and Ike.”
However, things took a nosedive, and the lovebirds called it quits when things turned sour between them.
