Chinonso Ibinabo Opara, alias Kim Oprah, has said that she was initially approached to compete on Big Brother Naija All Stars but turned it down.
The reality TV star, who eventually appeared as a house guest on the show three weeks ago, revealed that the first invitation interfered with her job schedule, so she couldn’t accept it at the time.
Kim Oprah explained why she agreed to a cameo appearance in an interview with BellaNaija following her elimination on Sunday.
Despite her refusal of the initial summons, she revealed that the organisers contacted her again to see if she would be willing to come to the BBNaija house as a phony roommate (house guest), which she agreed to.
Kim Oprah said; “I was initially summoned to go into the House for the main show but unfortunately my work schedule did not permit me.
“Luckily enough, they [Big Brother organisers] asked if I could come back as a guest housemate and that was the period we were also preparing for the Headies Awards.
“So we had actually halted production for my own show which is ‘Trending’ on Hip TV. So, I was given the time off to go into the House for a bit and come out.”
