#BBNaija: Karen Igho Advises Housemates On Handling Fame
2011 Big Brother Africa winner, Karen Igho has become a technical adviser.
She was giving #BBNaija housemates advise on the technicalities of being famous after the reality show ends.
She visited the Big Brother Naija house on Thursday which happened to also be her birthday.
“Don’t let them get to you. They know you, you don’t know them. It could be anybody behind that phone saying shit … so when you come outside, handle it in such a way that they don’t matter. They know you don’t know them again.
“You guys are already stars, you are already household names,’ Karen said.
She gave an example of how a ‘hater’ came for her.
"A hater came for me, he said, ‘Karen, you don dey black o abi your cream don finish? Or you no get money to buy cream?’ I replied him, ‘Bobo, my cream did not finish. I just stopped putting chemicals on my skin. Besides, my husband likes me just the way I am.”
Karen won the 6th edition of Big Brother Africa themed, BBA Amplified, and in December 2013, Igho announced via Twitter that she had breast cancer, but announced that she was cancer free in February 2014.
On Saturday, December 13, 2014, she got married to her long time fiancé, Yaroslav Rakos, at a private event in Jos and gave birth to a baby boy the following year.
