Former Big Brother Nigeria contestant Bisola Aiyeola has spoken about her life and the reason why she couldn’t gain a degree in school. She narrated how her inability to afford N15,000 ended her dreams of attending a university.
In an interview with Naij, she commented about her journey in the Big Brother Naija house and her educational issues.
Bisola said: “I wanted that platform. I wanted that wide reach. People send me messages from Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, etc. on a normal day, before I entered the house, how many people would have known me? So yes, even though I did not win, I feel like I achieved my aim. Even if I won that money, It would still finish. Why she did not attend university.
“I wrote Jamb and I was jammed. It’s not like I did not try. I tried so many schools all over the country. It’s not that I wasn’t passing the exams; it was a problem of not getting funds. I did not have money to pay for certain things. I was even duped when I tried to enter LASU. That pulled me back and all this just made me discouraged.
“I also tried National Open University (NOUN) and you know it is very easy to get into NOUN, and at certain times you needed to pay certain fees. Believe me; it was difficult to raise N15, 000 at that time. I just decided that all of my energy let me use it into using my talent to feed myself.”
