BBNaija Alex, while celebrating the New Year, revealed that she indeed thought of taking her life at different times in the past year. “At some point, I had a lot going on, I got suicidal, the bad part about it was that I told no one. I only ran away.
‘Thanks to God, I realized that wasn’t and will never be an option,” she shares, before going ahead to encourage her fans to always seek help and never consider self-harm as an option. The multi-talented entertainment personality also revealed how she became broke; despite the success, she has enjoyed since leaving the BBNaija house in 2018.
She describes the situation as one of the most challenging times of the past year. She shares with her fans, “At another point, something terrible happened and I was down to 16 thousand naira only. I thought my life was over but guess what, I survived, I never thought less of myself or took a wrong route to come out if it.
“I never accepted less, and I moved forward.” The Enugu State native further shared her struggle with finding love, and how she eventually found the strength and courage to pull through the very trying year. “I found love 3 times and lost it 3 times then I locked it up and threw the key away,” she says, adding “My vow to protect my happiness was one of my best decisions and it saved me.”
Like Alex’s no-holds-barred confessions, the ‘Confessions’ show on Africa Magic will involve genuine revelations that will in turn trigger real-time reactions from all parties involved, as they are unaware that the situation is being filmed. The 30-minute show will be aired at 06:00 pm (WAT) on Mondays, beginning January 6, 2020. Vanguard
