Chinonso Ibinabo Opara also known as Kim Oprah, has revealed that she was originally invited to be a part of the Big Brother Naija All Stars housemates but she turned it down.
The reality TV star, who later went into the show three weeks ago as a house guest said the first invitation clashed with her work schedule so she could not honour the invitation at the time.
Speaking after her eviction on Sunday, Kim Oprah revealed why she accepted a cameo while being interviewed by BellaNaija.
She said that despite rejecting the first summon, the organisers still contacted her again to find out if she would be willing to return to the BBNaija house as a fake housemate (house guest) and she accepted.
The TV presenter said she had to suspend her programme on HIP TV titled Trending and her employers gave her permission to return for the All Stars edition for a brief moment.
Kim Oprah said; “I was initially summoned to go into the House for the main show but unfortunately my work schedule did not permit me.
“Luckily enough, they [Big Brother organisers] asked if I could come back as a guest housemate and that was the period we were also preparing for the Headies Awards.
“So we had actually halted production for my own show which is ‘Trending’ on Hip TV. So, I was given the time off to go into the House for a bit and come out.”
