Nini and Saga
Anita Singh, a recently evicted Big Brother Naija housemate, who is more popularly called Nini, has admitted that she felt bad for making her friend, Saga, cry during the competition.
Days before she was evicted, Nini had been taking to a secret location in the house and made to pretend like she had left the competition. This made Saga to cry and put him in a melancholic mood throughout her absence.’
In an interview with Saturday Beats, Nini said, “I felt like I overdid it by putting the effects and certain thoughts in his head. But, I had to do a good job (with the task) because Big Brother had earlier punished us for Saga failing his task. I knew I was going to come back (to him) and let him know I had to do it for us because we did not want any more punishment from Biggie. I actually felt bad and I told Big Brother that he was punishing Saga. But at that point, I couldn’t do anything but complete the task.”
On if she was interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with Saga, she said, “Saga and I have not had any conversation about dating each other, so I have not thought about it. But, if we ever get to have that conversation; maybe, I would see our friendship in that light. In terms of the qualities I like about him, Saga is very attentive, caring and very intelligent. He is also very funny and spontaneous.”
She also stated that though she had spoken with her boyfriend after leaving the competition, they had not had any in-depth conversation. She said, “I have spoken with him. I just got out of the house and I have been really busy, so I have only had surface conversations with him. But, we are good.”
On if she would be able to sustain her friendship with Saga, Nini said, “We might not be able to continue at that pace because we would be so busy and would not be locked in one place together all the time. However, I intend to keep the same energy.”
Reliving her fight with Cross, Nini noted that she felt bad after that incident. She added, “Cross was the one person I never nominated (for eviction). He is my friend and even though we didn’t talk all the time, we understood ourselves. He is also my business partner because we have a lot of plans together. I felt really bad that we had an altercation and I said some things to him. That was actually why I cried.”
Nini also maintained that she didn’t go into the house with any strategy and had no regrets about her actions while in the competition.
“I did not go into the show with a strategy. I only wanted to be myself, and that’s what I did. I don’t think our genuine friendship affected my game in any way. I have no regrets. Even with the negativity, I would still do the same thing because Saga is an amazing young man,” she said.
Revealing her business plans after the show, she said, “I intend to launch a physical store in Abuja for my fashion brand and if everything goes well, I would launch another one in Lagos. Also, I would grab every good thing that comes my way for my modelling and other activities. I am a businesswoman, so I would be doing a lot of business.”
She also stated that she was rooting for ‘my daddy’, Whitemoney, and ‘my good sister’, Liquorose, to win the show.
