Gifty Powers, evicted Big Brother Naija housemate, has said she loves power and fame.


The upcoming actress made this known on Sunday during the eviction show.

“I love power and fame. With power and fame, no one says bull**** to me,” she said.

When asked by Big Brother host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, how she intends to advance her career through the platform provided to her by the reality show, Gifty said, “By wisdom, and doing the right things, if possible.”


During her time in the house, Gifty was a controversial housemate and viewers constantly criticised her for being phoney.

Her admission to not know some of the biggest Nigerian entertainers drew the ire of many Nigerians who took to social media to chastise her.

The ex-Big Brother housemate also spoke on the romantic relationships she forged while in the house.


Gifty said although she was cuddly with fellow evicted housemate, Soma, she was actually playing “a game.”

On her brief in-house affair with Bally, she said there was nothing to it, saying he’s a “brother.”

She was evasive when asked about her alleged history as a hairdresser.

“Actually, I’m a very fast learner. Hairdressing… I watch people do things and I’m a professional,” she said.


On her future plans, Gifty said, “It’s been challenging but with God, all things are possible.”

At the tail end of the eviction show, Obi-Uchendu advised the housemates to “stop over-acting, under-acting, and over-analysing.”

He counselled them to see the show as a game and be natural.
