If Nigerians imagined that the volume of snide remarks that greeted Goldie’s eviction from the current Big Brother Africa Stargame series would compel her to make up a tall tale excusing her performance, they were mistaken.
In her usual tough-girl posture, the singer indicated that she had no regret over what happened during her stay in Upville. And in response to her critics, she says, “I went into the game as the real me not the Goldie that everyone knows. I am a very emotional person. Everything I did in that house was real: my blonde hair, cooking, and cleaning. Everything.
“Even back at home, those who know me will tell you the same thing. It makes me feel proud as a lady and a Nigerian that I represented my country to the best of my ability. I am not a fake person and I’m sure people will remember me for those special moments in the BBA Stargame.”
Goldie is neither worried about the attention, which her stormy romance with Kenyan rapper, Prezzo, generated, nor what her critics back home had to say about her frequent emotional outbursts.
“I cried because of the betrayal that I felt from him. He was the last person in the house that I thought could stab me in the back. I thought he was my friend. I thought I could trust him with my secrets. So, I was emotional when I found out he betrayed me. I am hopelessly romantic at heart as opposed to the bad girl a lot of my fans have come to know as Goldie the artiste in weird costumes, holding leather whip or belting out lyrics that I would snatch any man that catches my fancy,” she says
Meanwhile, many Nigerian viewers can’t wait to see how far Prezzo, who betrayed, used and dumped the emotional singer will fare in the house on his own, as the remaining housemates in the game continue to outwit one another for the $300,000 ultimate prize.
