If my parents were together, I’ll not be a celebrity – BBNaija star, Tolanibaj

Former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) contestant, Tolanibaj has said if her parents were still married, she wouldn’t have been a celebrity.

The reality TV star said if her father and mother were still together, her life would have been completely different today.

Tolanibaj spoke in the latest episode of the Bahd and Boujee Podcast, alongside her co-host, Video Jockey, Moet Abebe.

She said: “If my parents were together, I don’t think I would be a celebrity. Because my dad was so anti-entertainment. I would just do master’s, Ph.D. My dad would even look for a job in the government for me. There’s nothing he would not do for me.”
