Gifty Powers, an upcoming actress, says the controversy generated by her claim not to know Banky W and Falz got her evicted from the Big Brother Naija show.


In an interview with Bold Magazine, Gifty said she was “massively misunderstood” by her fellow housemates and the viewing public.

“I would say that part of it actually got me out of the house and part of it was also the accent. I was massively misunderstood. Normally you don’t judge people, you get to know the person well enough before making decisions on their characters,” she said.

“So I think I was quite judged and the Banky W and Falz drama, I was completely misunderstood. There is this appearance celebrities have on TV and in reality they don’t match up. So I had to ask to make sure who they were.”


After leaving the reality show, Gifty Powers said that her sole preoccupation is making money.

The evicted Big Brother contestant said she’s not interested in pursuing a relationship with Soma, another evicted housemate.

“First of all Soma is not my kind of guy. There is no lunch date, dinner date, nothing like that outside the house with anyone. I am just dedicated and married to my business. Right about now, its all about the money,” she said.


Gifty was the fourth contestant to be evicted from the Big Brother Naija show.
