Tolanibaj, ex-BBNaija housemate, says she ditched Prince, her colleague, during the show because he “was not man enough” to be in a relationship with her.
She spoke on Monday during the ongoing reunion of the housemates that participated in the 2020 edition of the reality TV show.
The reality TV star said she regretted giving in to Prince’s advances at the time, noting that the relationship brought her “embarrassment.”
“Well, I liked Prince at the time, he’s attractive. We had a conversation in the garden then and he said he’s ready to be done with and that it was me that he wants,” she said.
“I remembered letting him know that I did not believe him at a time. I also told him then that he came to me because Nengi had rejected him.
“I told him multiple times that I’m not a second option but he tried to convince me that he really wants me and honestly, I regret getting into that entanglement because it has caused nothing but embarrassment.
“Embarrassment on social media, his family members and online generally. I felt it’s something that I could have avoided. He was mostly telling me that we’re not going to be just friends, that this relationship must work. They’re trying to portray me as being desperate.”
But in his reaction, Prince said though he really liked Tolanibaj at the time, their seemingly conflicting personalities made it difficult for them to get along.
“I actually liked her at the time but over time, I noticed we had conflicting personalities and the fact that she once said I don’t make her happy,” he said.
Tolanibaj, however, fired back, explaining that Prince could not prove his mettle as a man. She said the development made her consider getting close to Neo to make him jealous.
“Prince really, is that what you think? Maybe if you’re man enough, I wouldn’t have been doing that. You should have stepped up to being a man. So, I wanted to use Neo and make you jealous and let you how a man should be because you’re definitely not a man,” she replied.
Her statement about Neo would later spark a heated face-off between her and Vee.
Vee, who is believed to be in a relationship with Neo, had accused Tolanibaj of being desperate for love.
“You obviously have the desperation that you’re claiming not to have,” Vee said.
Rankled by her comment, Tolanibaj threw a pillow at Vee.
