Ilebaye’s Unexpected Triumph: Unveiling the Journey of the Youngest Winner

In a candid interview following her unexpected victory, Ilebaye Precious Odiniya, the youngest winner of Big Brother Niger All Stars 2023, shared insights into her journey, relationships, and future plans.

Returning to the show after an early exit in a previous season, Ilebaye’s primary goal was to showcase her true self. She felt her initial three-week stint didn’t allow viewers to see the entirety of her personality. “I just wanted to showcase myself more,” she expressed, emphasizing her desire to reveal the genuine “Gen Z body.”

Her time in the house was not without challenges. Ilebaye admitted to feeling overwhelmed during the initial weeks, attributing her emotions to the dynamics and events unfolding in the house. Addressing accusations of playing innocent after causing mischief, she clarified, “I didn’t even have any strategy. I was just having fun.” She emphasized that her actions were never intentional, and any perceived mischief was a result of misunderstandings.

Discussing her relationships in the house, Ilebaye touched upon her bond with Doyin. Despite not being friends before the show, they formed a connection. However, misunderstandings arose due to a lack of deep understanding of each other’s personalities. Ilebaye stressed that she always valued their friendship and never spoke ill of Doyin.

Her playful interactions with Cross were another highlight. While they shared many light-hearted moments, Ilebaye clarified that their relationship was purely platonic. “The house is always cold, and he looked so gentle,” she said, explaining their bond.

Reflecting on her win, Ilebaye revealed she never felt strong or saw herself as a potential winner until the very end. She attributed her continued presence in the house to luck rather than strength.

With a grand prize of 120 million, Ilebaye’s future looks promising. While she hasn’t made any concrete plans yet, she expressed a desire to invest in her clothing brand and other ventures. “I just want to sit down, take my time, and follow the right footsteps,” she shared.

Concluding the interview, the host lauded Ilebaye’s journey, highlighting the unpredictability of the show. As the youngest winner, Ilebaye’s triumph is a clear indication that when it’s your time, it’s indeed your time.
