Gifty Powers, a former Big Brother Naija housemate, has urged Nigerians not to judge her based on the “game” she was playing before being evicted from the reality show.


She was the only housemate sent home Sunday night after getting the least number of votes from the public.

During the four weeks she spent in the house, Gifty attained controversial status for many reasons, particularly for saying she didn’t know Banky W and Falz, two of Nigeria’s famous celebrities.

Addressing Nigerians through her Instagram page on Monday night, Gifty said she was misunderstood.


The upcoming actress said what she actually meant was that she had “never met” both artistes before.

She reminded everyone that Big Brother Naija was a game, noting that there was a reason behind everything she did.

“Good evening everyone. First of all I was misunderstood when I said I don’t know Banky, actually what I meant was, ‘I’ve never met him in person’,” she wrote.

“Banky is an amazing singer no doubt. And right now I want to use this platform to apologise for all the wrong words I said about him. It’s just a game, we say/do things for specific reasons.

“I was emotional[ly] unstable cos I was up for possible eviction. So to all Banky fans and everyone plz forgive me, Banky I love ur music and you are a talented cute guy.

“And concerning Falz, I know the song called “soft work” but believe me I had no idea it was FALZ that sang it and also I haven’t met him before..that was why I had to ask ‘who is he’.


“To everyone out there, I just want to refresh your mindset again that the BIG BROTHER SHOW is always a game that has just one winner and whatever actions u have seen in the house is for a reason so please I beg you all don’t judge by what you have seen or heard.”
