Big Brother Naija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ contestant, Maria Chike Benjamin, has said that before her sojourn into the BBNaija house, she was struggling to discover herself.

The former air hostess said that contrary to popular belief she was financially stable but not made, as she still needed a lot of improvement career-wise and in other areas.

According to Maria, she was lost and the platform served as a gateway which ushered her to a path of achieving her goals and dreams.

She said; “Prior to Big Brother, I wasn’t made in any way, I was still struggling, and my life needed a lot of improvement too. I was still struggling to find my light career-wise, and otherwise. I might have had some previous careers prior to that time but many things I really wanted to do as a person had not come to light.

So, prior to BBN, I was still lost as a person. I must say, financially, I was okay, but not made. BBN platform was a gateway for me to be able to achieve certain goals and dreams which I have always had.”

The reality TV star also dismissed allegations that she goes after married men. She, however, added that she does not owe anybody an explanation.
