Former Big Brother Naija participant, Oluwabamike Olawunmi, popularly known as BamBam, has revealed her original reasons for sticking to Teddy A during their time on the show.
Back then, the two love birds got viewers’ attention following their make-out sessions, with many having the opinion that they would eventually go their separate ways after the end of the program.
However, their relationship continued beyond the program and just some days back, Teddy A cemented their relationship with a proposal.
BamBam has now explained how she had believed their relationship was just a game, despite being aware of their “rare connection”.
She said, “Fate happened to us. I can’t say it was pre-planned. He had a serious relationship that was one-year-old before I met him. He had a girlfriend he was serious with, so we did not plan to fall in love with each other. We did not know we would last this long.
“We had a very rare connection in the house. We both knew it but we kept telling ourselves ‘it’s just for the game’ but it was no game. So, I can’t predict what fate has designed. So, people should not go in there hoping to be a Teddy A and BamBam. I went to the house for a different purpose, but ended up getting Teddy as a bonus.”
Reiterating on the authenticity of their engagement, BamBam who was being interviewed by Saturday Beats, said, “It is real. Just like every other thing, you would see it happen. I can’t start giving dates” she told Saturday Beats.
“If you cannot make a best friend out of your intending partner, where you know their limits and their boundaries, then you are messed up really. I am blessed that Teddy is mature, not careless, and as public figures, we know how to manage situations that seem beyond our control.”
