Reality TV personality Bella Okagbue has disclosed that Sheggz’s family had concerns about her connection with him and encouraged her to break it off. She said this in a recent Big Brother Naija reunion episode when discussing her relationship with her boyfriend.
She claimed that after being kicked off the show, her family counseled her to put her connection with Sheggz behind her and concentrate on developing her brand and profession. She claims that she originally found the advice confusing and questioned whether the London-based footballer didn’t love her on the show sincerity.
She eventually understood, though, that their link and affection are real, and she made the decision to stay with him in spite of her family’s initial disapproval.
In her words;
“From the family I am from, all those things like kissing I did on the show is not allowed. I am meant to be a proper good girl.
“I was briefed to focus on my brand as soon as I got out of the house. I thought Sheggz didn’t really like me because I had no idea why my family said so.
“At that point, I had no doubt about what we shared; I knew what I felt for him and he knew what he felt for me.
“After the first day of the interview, I decided to leave things as they were. I came out of the house and my family were saying I lost my home training because I was following man and kissing in the house.
“They are my family, they can’t throw me away. After a few days, they came around and everything was fine.
“I was told not to do the relationship based on what was out there. But at the end of the day, it was my decision and we are still in a relationship.”
