Part Of My Dreams Is To Establish A Church - Beverly

Background

I grew up in Surulere, Lagos.  But I grew up like a boy! I am the last child and only girl in the family.   I did not have toys and I did not know any Barbie story, all I knew was Voltron, a cartoon. I did not grow up with both parents.  My father is a very simple man and he is somebody who can accept your mistakes.  He does not spank his kids.  Meanwhile, my mother is very strict. I could not even play outside as a young child. I had to ride my bicycle inside the sitting room.  I attended Daughters of Divine Love Convent, Enugu State.  I thought I would be a reverend sister but I abandoned the vision when I dropped out in my fifth year. I finished my secondary education in a secular institution before moving to Babcock University.  I could not finish from Babcock because I had some personal issues. Again, I dropped and enrolled at the National Open University.

My convent experience

It affected me in a very spiritual way. In as much as I know worldly things, I still fear God and have faith in Him.  The reason why I wanted to become a nun was because I was raised in a Catholic home.  I just felt it was the best thing for me to do at that time. I used to see myself as a messenger of God.  Even though I did not become a nun, I still remain faithful to God. Part of my dreams is to establish a church and do a lot of charity work.

Me and Big Brother

I went there of my own freewill and spending time in the house has greatly influenced my lifestyle. I have changed in a lot of ways. I am cutting down on friends because I have too many of them— home and abroad.  Also, I have always been a very impatient person but staying in the Big Brother house has changed all that for me.  The experience taught me to tolerate people because a lot of them annoyed me in that house.  While I was there, I learnt that good things come to those who wait. It was difficult initially because I was always conscious of the cameras but I had to live with it.

My affair with Angelo

I fell in love with Angelo. I am a very open person and I do not like to hide my feelings.  The concept of the show was reality.  Since it did not require pretence or play acting, I just became true to myself. Concerning the issue of sex in the house, I have said it many times that there was no sex involved. The bathtub incident was just blown out of proportion by the media. If there was a camera inside the bath water, everyone would have clearly seen that Angelo had his boxers on.  But I guess since I was the naked one, it was easy to rush to conclusion. Time will tell if there is a future for the relationship.  Also, I believe relationships should be left in the hands of God.  He decides when and who you can move with from one stage to another. For now, I can only say I had fun while the stay in the house lasted and right now, I am still having fun. I am a young lady.  I have a lot going for me and so many things to be done.

Plans

Apart from continuing with my charity work, I will resume my video vixen role and feature in as many musical videos as possible. Also, I have plans to host talk shows and do some movies. But above all, I will continue to pursue my passion of dancing and modelling.

Style

I like simplicity in style. I am not a flirty dresser and the items that can never be missing in my wardrobe are bum shorts and tank tops. These are what I wear on a daily basis.

  5. Yes God has a way of saving His church. Let Beerly go back to school instead of wasting.. She shd stop defending herself on the sex issue with Angelo rather she shd remain sorry because she had sex and shamelesssly beg for sex always. Truely Beverly is a disgrace to womanhood and Naija youths. Period
