Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty Powers has admitted that she made a couple of mistakes while in the house, leading to her eviction.
In an interview with Vanguard Star Tracker, Gifty said her fake accent, comments about Banky W and Falz were some of the reasons Nigerians voted her out of the show.
She stated she only wanted to be funny and controversial in order to entertain viewers.
She said: “I think Nigerians voted me out because of my fake accent as well as the Banky W and Falz controversy. That’s the reasons I was kicked out of the competition.
“My strategy while in the BBNaija house was to be controversial and hilarious. So, I tried to fake both English, Iranian and Ghanaian accents just to make the house lively. I was being funny.
“I think I over-played my game in the house. It wasn’t what I expected. But we are humans, and we are bound to make mistakes.
“Yes, I accept the responsibility for my mistakes. I know that I messed up big time. I’m not perfect and I can’t say that I did perfectly well in the house. Although, I tried my best, I think I over-played the game.”
She also disclosed that she didn’t fall in love with anyone in the house, contrary to belief that she fell for Soma.
Gifty however said she was only attracted to fake housemate, Jon.
She said: “To be honest, I don’t think I fell in love with anybody. I was playing my game because everyone in that house actually had their own strategies. And mine was to be controversial and hilarious; to make the guys fall in love with me, to be jovial, playful and smart. I didn’t fall in love at all.
“I would use the word ‘attracted to a guy.’ I was attracted to John, the fake housemate. Viewers had this mindset that I was attracted to Soma, but it wasn’t true. I was playing my game, but one guy I was attracted to, while I was in the house was John.
“I never knew he was a fake housemate. He has this appearance of calm and reserved young man. He was so quiet, intellectual, smart and cool. I was moving close to him because he had this crazy ways that I was trying to add to my own plan.”
