Evicted Big Brother All Stars contestant, Tolanibaj, has said she participated in the ongoing reality show for fun and not to win the prize money.
The All Stars edition of the Africa’s most popular show started on 23rd of July and the winner is expected to go home with N120 million.
Tolanibaj, who was evicted two weeks ago, said her reason for going into the Big Brother house again was to have fun, and not because she wanted to win the cash prize.
Although she was evicted alongside Frodd, the vlogger faced heavy backlash over her conduct on the show.
She was lambasted for fighting other women over a fellow contestant, Neo, who consistently denied their relationship and maintained that they were just friends.
But in a recent video on her YouTube channel, the US-returnee noted that she is used to being criticised and judged. According to Tolani, she had already earned the title of “queen of drags” before she entering the BBNaija house.
“I am used to getting dragged. Before I entered the house, I was queen of drags. I came out of Big Brother show, did I expect to be liked? The game that I played even backfired.
“I did not go there to win the money. If you remember on day one when they asked, I said no pressure… I am just here to have fun,” she said.
Since her eviction on 27th of August, Tolanibaj has not gone on media rounds or granted any interview to medi organisations.
Speaking on the reason for her media silence, the YouTuber said; “I did not feel the need to grant anyone access to me and I wanted to be selfish with my time”.

Former housemate, Linda “Princess” Onyejekwe said that the N120 million grand prize can be made in many different ways.
Her statement came amid backlash she faced over a claim that she is in a relationship with a billionaire which was why she was reserved in the BBNaija house.
Princess felt bad being the first housemate to be evicted this season, and noted that she did not expect to be evicted from the show as quickly as she was.
She said; “I still feel bad. But, there is nothing I can do about it. I just have to move on, and focus on my businesses.
“I did not see it coming. I still do not believe I should be out of the house yet. I felt I was the only one being real in the house, but it seems people did not realise that. In one’s everyday life, one doesn’t get to stir up drama for no reason.
“N120m is quite an incentive, though I only knew about the prize money when we got into the house. However, one can make that money in many different ways (without winning the show). As for me, I chose to look at the bigger picture.”
