Former Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up’ housemate, Henry Uwakwe, popularly known Groovy, has finally addressed allegations of him using relationships to go far in the show.
The reality TV star was in two relationships at different points in time during his stay in the BBNaija house, first with Beauty who got disqualified in the second week and later with the season’s winner, Phyna.
According to Groovy, contrary to the narrative peddled by some his colleagues and fans portraying him as not being genuine when he was in the house, he was actually caring, loyal and true to himself.
He made this known in an interview with Saturday Beats while emphasising that it was wrong for some of his exes’ fans to claim that he deceived the ladies simply because things did not work out.
Groovy said; “I feel there has been a certain perception of me in the public as a result of the relationships I was in while in the house. All those talks about me not being genuine is something I want to clear up, because I actually stayed true to myself. I was caring and loyal. I did not try to deceive anybody. I believed I could win the show, without necessarily having to do any of that.
“What is the essence of winning the show if I lost my mantle or damaged anybody in the process? I feel like some things work out and some things don’t work out. Saying that I am not a genuine person because everything did not work out is a wrong narrative about me. I am not what they said I am.”
Speaking about his experience with other housemates at their reunion, the singer said he saw it as an avenue for his fellow ex-housemates to quash any unresolved bad blood between them.
He said; “I feel like the reunion was a continuation of what we did in the house, and I actually saw it as an opportunity for people to bury the hatchet, and air out their grievances for one last time, and find mutual understanding.
“There were fun sides to it, and there were also fights. I felt everybody had different experiences. I went there and I said my truth, which is all I always say, because I am a genuine person. I say things as they are, and don’t try to cut corners.”
