Cynthia Nwadiora, a first runner-up at the third edition of Big Brother Naija, widely known as Cee-C, has said that the coronavirus pandemic is both a blessing and a curse.
The reality TV star stated this recently in an Instagram live session with record label boss, Ubi Franklin.
She said, “I like this coronavirus period. Though there has been a lot of crisis, it has given me time to spend on myself. A lot of people can’t even look at themselves in the mirror; they don’t like who they have become. This is the time for everybody to look within and ask themselves important questions such as — ‘Who am I becoming’? This is a time for everybody to try to level up. It’s a time to become better. It is a curse on one hand because people are dying, but it’s also a blessing on the other hand.
Cee-C, who is a lawyer, also revealed why she dumped law to pursue her passion in the entertainment industry.
She added, “When I went for Big Brother Naija, I wasn’t so sure of what I wanted to do in the entertainment industry. But being in the house, it became clearer by the day. While in the house, I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to practise law that rather, I would find my niche in the entertainment industry.”
On how she has been able to maintain her focus despite being a celebrity, Nwadiora said, “It is very easy for people in my position to want the fanciful life, glamour and adventure. It is very easy for me to do that. But I try to remain focused because if I want to achieve my goals, I need to make certain sacrifices.”
Cee-C also noted that her fans started loving her from the Big Brother house when she was still a mess.
“I haven’t figured out how to reward my fans. Every day, I think about this people. They didn’t just start loving me now. They started loving me right from the Big Brother house when I was still a mess. I think about them every day and I’m still yet to figure out what exactly I want to do for them because most times, they are not doing what they do because of what they stand to gain from me; they do it because they genuinely love and support me. Right now, I am trying to always give them reasons to be proud of me. I’m doing my best to make them proud,” she said.
