'I Was Cheated' - Tayo Insists

After putting on a good show at the Big Brother house for 63 days, Nigerian housemate and first runner up, Tayo Faniran, recently returned home and was welcomed with all the pomp befitting a Hotshot.

As is customary, MultiChoice Nigeria, M-Net and proud sponsor, Jameson, threw him a homecoming party which took place at the popular Cova Lounge, in Victoria Island, Lagos. Speaking with the media shortly before his party, Tayo said he was shocked when Tanzania's Idris Sultan was declared the winner of the reality show.

However, the 28-year-old model and new father explained that the interaction with other Africans in the Big Brother house plus the exposure to the rich and diverse cultures in Africa have adequately prepared him to further pursue a career in acting, singing, or as a TV presenter.

"I know that I was cheated, though it became regional at some point, when I was in the house, as a Naija smart boy, I could calculate, we were just two from West Africa, from East Africa, there were four or five countries and also from the South, so I could tell the way it would work. At a point, I had the opportunity to get to the internet, I saw a lady who, on a Facebook page commended Lilian's picture, but she added that she would never vote for West Africa again, so it wasn't against Nigeria, it was against West Africa. This started worrying me a lot. Ella of Uganda and Franklin used to plead to East Africa to vote for them, and they would tell me to wait, since West Africa has won before, so I started fighting against it.

"I started campaigning during my diary sessions with Big Brother, telling people to vote for facts and not region, I said this at a press conference that when we are abroad, we say we are all Africans, but when we are in Africa, we start to say we are East Africans or South Africans, we should all be united.

"It means people are not loyal to the game, they are just voting for their citizens and not who entertained them the most.

"I was really shocked when IK declared Idris the winner of the show. I genuinely thought I would win, or at least be declared a co-winner! Nonetheless I'm incredibly grateful for the unique opportunity and exposure Big Brother has given me. All I can tell Nigerians, Africa and the rest of the world now is 'watch this space!" he said.


MultiChoice General Manager, Marketing, Martin Mabutho, expressed the company's pride in the reality show's ability to bring Africans together.

He said, "MultiChoice, M-Net, and the show's partners worked hard to make this season of Big Brother Africa bigger than the last and we thank all stakeholders for their support."

Efosa Aiyevbomwan, publicity and talent lead for M-Net (West), said "we work hard to make each edition of Big Brother Africa bigger than the last and this year provided yet another mix of excitement, intrigues and incredible entertainment for our viewers."

The reality show which began with 26 housemates successfully came to an end on Sunday, December 7, 2014.

  10. Some of you are idiot,am saying this because with your comments i have known that you guys only watched BBA without knowing the rules without his annoyance and arrogance,how would you have enjoyed the show.Anyway Tayo have gotten more than that price.So I say a big thank you to biggie for advertising our Tayo,am happy for Idris at least he can now buy some good stuff for himself without borrowing.Samantha take what you can before the Mola will finish because Idris have a lot of things to settle with that money.Don't forget that he has a very poor background hahaha.Die if you like I have spoken my mind.

    1. I second that. GOD FORFIVE THEM FOR THEY DON*T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE SAYING. I still prefered arrogancy to a man jumping from one bed to another taking advantages of the ladies emosion in the name of game. Ask your conscience?

  11. One thing is clear from the comments on this page which is that Tayo is a star that's why it is easy to hate on him. I can see through most of the comments and I see bitterness and anger towards another. Which is quite unnecessary. U should wonder why good things keep coming Tayos way, the more he is hated, the more he is being blessed!

  12. U haters should get over tayo. . D dude is having the time of his life. Be assured dat u will hear of him doing exploits for a very long time. U said he insulted women if so, how come he has a large woman fan base? I see dat u are just looking for reasons to hate. Keep hating dears while he keeps shining. But tayo is really trending! Wow
