Despite these challenges, she persevered and captured the hearts of countless fans, ultimately securing victory and the N120 million prize. Her remarkable journey from being a third evictee in BBNaija Season 7 (Level Up) to reigning champion of this edition is a testament to her resilience and determination.
The BBNaija All Stars edition was an exciting and diverse gathering of former housemates who had made an impression in previous show seasons.
