Karen Igho Rakos, winner of Big Brother Africa 2011, visited the 5 final Big Brother Naija housemates, Thursday, in company of show host Ebuka Obi Uchendu. The housemates were super excited.
Sharing from their wealth of knowledge and experience, the duo advised the housemates on how they can succeed in the real world. Karen revealed that the pressure of being a celebrity almost made her commit suicide. In the same vein, Ebuka revealed how he had to go back to school in order to become more relevant in the industry.
Ebuka also advised them on a number of issues, including answering questions in interviews that are awaiting them after the finale. How what they say would be used against them and the need to be prepared.
Karen also spoke on how she handled negative comments from outsiders, especially when she stopped using lightening creams. She told the housemates to prepare themselves to handle criticism properly.
“Don’t let them get to you. They know you but you don’t know them,” Karen said.
Both advised that the housemates maximise the opportunity and platform to the fullest even though they don’t win the prize money.
Coincidentally, today April 6th is Karen’s birthday. She celebrated her big day with the housemates with a lot to eat and drink.
