In a recent revelation, former Big Brother Naija reality star and musician, Tope Adenibuyan, popularly known as Teddy A, disclosed that he and his colleague, Bamike Olawunmi, aka Bam Bam, were in a disagreement for about two weeks before he proposed marriage to her. The couple, who have been in the public eye since their time on the reality show, were reportedly on the brink of parting ways.
Teddy A shared this information on the latest episode of the The Honest Bunch audiovisual podcast co-hosted by actor, Nedu. He expressed that they were “pretty much done” but after consulting with his personal assistant and brother, he decided to propose to Bam Bam. This decision was driven by the realization of their shared history and the strong bond they had formed since their time on Big Brother Naija.
