Sammie Jacob Alifa, the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) season six edition housemate, says he finds it difficult to keep up with the limelight.


During a Q&A session with fans on his Twitter page on Tuesday, the reality star disclosed that being a celebrity has been overwhelming with too many “dos and don’ts”.

He said his journey since leaving the Big Brother house has been a “bittersweet” experience, adding that the most annoying part is the fact that he can no longer repeat clothes.

The 26-year-old student also said his team’s reaction to his discomfort is that he needs to do away with the “poverty mentality”.


“Very very overwhelming! A lot of dos and don’ts, It’s just bittersweet out here,” he said.

“The absolutely annoying part is I can’t repeat my clothes!  Anyways I need to throw the poverty mentality away and embrace a new mindset! That’s what they said!”

In an interview with TheCable Lifestyle, Sammie had disclosed that he initially lost his self-confidence on BBNaija due to the consciousness he had of his poor background.


“A guy like me from Zaria, Kaduna state, a regular boy finally in BBNaija and seeing other housemates, the truth is that I lost confidence. I was like what am I doing here? I should not be here. Then I thought that regardless, I’m still human and I tried it and I got here, why don’t I accept this whole thing,” he had said.

“The crying part came when I sat down one day and I was looking at everybody in the house laughing and sharing stories of how successful they are. That made me lose confidence again. I didn’t believe in myself at all and I went in to take out my pictures to justify the fact that I’m nobody and that I switched from nothing to something.”
