Big Brother Naija star, Adeoluwa Okusaga better known as Saga, has opened up on how his mum’s death affected his family.
He said that his mother died in 2014 when she was 49 years old just as they were preparing to host a memorable birthday party for when she clocks 50.
Saga said the loss which was a ‘horror show’ hit his father hard, because the man he knew as a hardened person could not stop crying.
“He was very hurt, my dad that’s a man, full brute, he was always crying, so I had to even be the man sometimes.” he said.
Saga explained further that she passed at a time they wanted to be intentional about spoiling her and this hurt both of them deeply.
The reality TV star spoke in an interview with popular journalist, Chude Chideonwo, stating he was a complete mummy’s boy.
According to the BBNaija alum, though his mother’s demise left a huge vacuum, the incident still made him strong.
He said: “I lost my mom in 2014, she was sick after she did my 21st birthday and it was three months of a horror show, it makes me who i am today.
“I was mummy’s boy, complete. My mum used to come to school every weekend. She died when I was in final year.
“She came every weekend and did every birthday. Sometimes she even insists I come home every weekend, she will drive me back to school after church.
“I was proper mummy’s boy. If my dad doesn’t go out with her, I’d go out with her like her husband, I’d wear her husband’s clothes.
“When she left, she gave me the opportunity to be my own man. My father and I had to first fight because my mum occupied all the space in my heart. My dad was also good to us, but she was just there 100%. So it left a very huge vacuum.
“My dad lost his love, I lost my mother so both of us were just kinda going mad. So it really made me be my own man because I had to find my feet”.
