-Plateau Govt Proud of Delta-Born Winner Efe Ajaba
Offiong Edet Anthony, popularly known as ThinTallTony or TTT, has urged Nigerians to remember the creative things he
did on the Big Brother Naija show rather than his perceived negative antics.
Following his eviction from the reality show, TTT received a lot of stick for failing to intimate the housemates –
especially Bisola – of his marital status.
Speaking with TheCable Lifestyle on Tuesday, the ex-Big Brother housemate said he will approach the competition in
the same manner if he were to do it again.
“I wouldn’t change anything, I would do everything that I did all over again but a lot of people don’t understand
that a game is a game. A lot of people went in with strategies, I didn’t go in with any,” he said.
“I just didn’t want to talk about my marriage, I wanted to show how creative I am. If we go past the questions
people are asking about the negative things and ask was he creative, was he innovative? Did he take advice from
people? Scrape things out of nothing and make them Nigerian and presentable? Yes, I did.
TTT revealed that his motivation to win or do well in the Friday night games was to have the opportunity to drink
alcohol, which was not readily made available to the housemates.
He said: “I loved the tasks and the Friday night games. It wasn’t even about winning the tasks, it was the alcohol.
That was the only thing that brought us back to normal because throughout the week, we would have done hectic things
that made us sweat but Friday night was the time to relax.”
TTT, who hails from Akwa Ibom state, is a dancer and thespian.
Simon Lalong, the Plateau governor, says the state is proud to claim winner of Big Brother Naija show Efe Ejeba
despite being a native of Delta state.
He said the rapper will be received as an ambassador for entertainment and creative industry in the state.
Samuel Emmanuel Nanle, Plateau director, press & public affairs, in a statement, said despite being a native of
Delta state, efe spent his formative years in Plateau.
“The victory of Efe is a further prove of the brotherhood, excellence, courage and determination that characterises
the Plateau Spirit. It will be recalled that the Executive Governor had on Friday the 7th April, 2017 called on all
Plateau Citizens to stand in solidarity with Efe by voting and mobilizing others to vote for the homegrown actor,
who was at the verge of joining the team of successful Plateau Citizens who have won the TV Reality event in the
past,” the statement read.
