Former Big Brother Naija 2021 Season 6 housemate, Gbolahan Ololade, better known as Kayvee on the show, spoke to Legit.Ng during the BBNaija Season 7 announcement. He opened up about how he has dealt with the pain of his abrupt departure from the show, saying not paying attention to social media outrage has helped him survive his mental health struggle.
The photographer by trade also revealed that going on the show has helped his career, and he is now also mental health advocate.
How has is it been so far since you left the house, what have you been up to?
“I have been doing my photography thing, considering the way I left the house. I had to also pick up being a mental health advocate, and I did an event as regards hearing people’s thoughts and minds. It’s been an interesting journey so far, and I am super proud of myself.”
Let’s go back to your time in the house; do you think that you’ve to be really mentally sound to be in Biggie’s house?
“If you’re talking about being mentally sound, yes, just being yourself, basically. If you’re in the house, just play your game how you want to play it.”
While you were in the house, what will you specifically say caused your mental breakdown, so many stories have been said, but you were not the only one that was locked down that long?
“A whole lot of things, basically, but I can really pinpoint that I was mentally stressed in the house. Before going to the house, I was locked down for months. Getting into the house, meeting a lot of strangers and a couple of other things add to it.”
