Tobi Bakre on Why He Quit Bank Job for BBNaija
“My personality when I’m doing the same thing over and over it tends to get boring. At that time I was still young. I think I was 22 at that time. So, I said ‘okay I have always wanted to go on this show [Big Brother Naija], and I’m tired of this [banking] job.’
So, it was either I start processing my japa [Visa] to Canada or I can go for [BBNaija]. And then it was more like you can go for this thing [BBNaija] and then come back and process your Canada [Visa] and whatever life brings.
“I was just really tired of where I was. So, I was like okay let me take a chance on this [BBNaija]. So, we went for Big Brother and then I didn’t really think after Big Brother this is what I want to do, that is what I want to do.
I was just like okay, in case anything should come up, I got like management, someone I respected and trusted. And I was like ‘please o, whatever it’s I’m doing there [Big Brother house], plz make sure there’s value to be gotten when I get out’.”
How Fans Sent Me N800K after Losing on Show – Tobi Bakre
“Because I didn’t win, a lot of fans, people have sent money to my account. Sorry guys, I’m just confessing for the first time. I entered the bank with like nothing.
I remember myself and one of my friends, Adamu, that December because life was tough, we were like ‘let’s just spend all our money and enjoy ourselves’. And this is what we did. We were clubbing, we were partying, we spent all the money.
So, there was really no money in January. I just got out [of Big Brother house] and I saw like N800 and something thousand in my account. So, I [used it] got an iPhone. But then, I was ready to do the work. I think the rest is history,”
