One of the top five finalists of the 2020 edition of Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Neo Akpofure, has said that his life took a tremendous turn after he participated in the reality show.
The model also stated that he initially tried to keep his relationship with his girlfriend and co-contestant on the show, Vee Iye, out of the media.
Revealing what attracted him to Vee, he told Sunday Scoop, “Her confidence was very sexy to me and it made me fall for her. Then, the way she talks. I could listen to her for the rest of my life. Her beauty is enchanting and she is very intelligent and focused.
“Although we share a few things publicly, we still try to keep our lives private. When one has someone that special, one can’t help but show her off.
“Every day, I am thankful for the ‘correct’ life I am living now. In 72 days, my life went from zero to more than a million— from grass to grace. I have always wanted to model and promote brands that I am passionate about and right now, I am doing that. Imagine getting paid to do what I love? If this isn’t the dream, I don’t know what is.”
Sharing his thoughts on the recently concluded reunion show which featured all the former contestants, Neo said, “It was a chance to correct some of the misconceptions about me and of course mend fences with some people I considered friends.
“But we all saw that some people came with premeditated plans and vendetta to trend and chase clout. I hope they got what they wanted. I left the reunion in a good place with everyone I consider my friends and I am very grateful for that. I will always make them proud.”
