BBNaija All Stars: Reason I Refused To Use My Mother’s Dementia As A Strategy – Uriel

Evicted Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate, Uriel Oputa has opened up on the reason she decided not to use her mother’s dementia as a strategy on the show.

Uriel stated that she refused to use such a strategy because the outcome would be too predictable, adding that she has spent the last ten years caring for her mum.

The reality TV star said this when she featured on Channels TV’s Rubbin’ Minds recently.

According to her, if she had spoken about her mother on the show, viewers would accuse her of trying to get sympathy votes.

Speaking further, she insisted that she has other talents that are enough to showcase.

Uriel said, “When I said initially that I have gone through a lot, I was actually talking of [my] mother. I spent ten years of my life being a carer. So, this is just a little icing on the cake.

“Not bringing my mother full front in [Big Brother] House, was a decision I made before I went in because I just thought that it would just be too predictable. People would be like, ‘Oh! Why is she using her mother to get sympathy votes?’ And, I feel like there is so much about myself, and I have so many talents, whether it is cooking… I found out in the House that I have such stage presence whether it’s theatre, I’m able to project myself in a good manner.

“So, there is so much more to Uriel than just her mother. And I wanted to show that I’m a cook. I’m also into fitness. I can sing. I’m well-rounded. And that was a decision I made not to bring my mother into the equation they [fans] have known that side of me. They’ve known it for six years. This is a fresh start, so let me show you things you might not know of me.”
