“I don’t know how to handle the pressure that comes with fame” – Ilebaye confesses


Big Brother Naija All Stars winner Ilebaye Precious Odiniya has admitted that she is finding it difficult to adjust to her newfound fame.

Though she acknowledged that she made the decision to mentally prepare herself for fame before returning to the BBNaija house, she stated that she is unsure how to handle the pressure that comes with it.

In a candid interview with The Punch, the 22-year-old reality TV star revealed that fame has provided her with a family and numerous opportunities.

Ilebaye said; “I don’t really know how to handle the pressure that comes with fame. Before I went into the BBN house, I told myself that l had to be mentally ready for everything that would come.

“I just have to keep things on the low and be able to adapt to whatever comes my way. Besides, I see anything that comes my way as what is expected. It is left for me to overlook things, including clashes and backbiting, and just focus on my future.”

“Fame has done some things for me. It has given me a family; I have a lot of fans. There are many people who love me for who I am. It has brought me good luck and so many opportunities. It has basically made me the star I am today.”

Speaking on the perception people have about her pretending to be from a humble background, the self-styled Gen Z baddie said; “Regarding the notion held by some people that I am from a rich home but was behaving as if I was from a modest background in the show, I will say that I was not being humble. I was just being myself in the house; that’s all.”
