• Saga cleared that he didn’t cross boundaries with her interest in Nini, in Biggie’s House, because she constantly reminded him of her boyfriend who’s probably watching the show.
Big Brother Naija season 6 Shine Ya Eye Reunion, Day 8, (episode 8) continued on Monday night, June 13 with the highpoints of the most relationships in the Biggie’s House. And starting with a clip where Saga was captured expressing his feelings for Nini, the show host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu asked why it was so for him.
And considering that Nini had repeatedly made it clear that she has a boyfriend outside the House, who’s probably watching, Ebuka asked Saga to explain his constant close-up on Nini, and why he didn’t see the need to sort of slow down a bit.
Ebuka said, “I think most of us now understand that you’re very expressive and emotional”, Saga cuts in, “I’m an artist”. Ebuka continues, “You’re not afraid to express how you feel. I keep bringing up that relationship because that’s what we think and ask all the time. Why did it not matter to you. You said a lot, at the time, we’re just friends. But we know your intensions.
“We just saw a clip there when you were expressing yourself. Friends don’t do that, you never said that to Arin for example, but she was your very good friend. So, it was obviously more than a friendship, knowing there’s a guy out there (Nini’s boyfriend) who’s probably watching. Why did you never feel the need to sort of slow down?”
Responding to Ebuka’s question, Saga confirmed that he tried slowing down, but it didn’t work out for him, which was when he realized that the connection he had with Nini was very strong.
And also, Saga observed that the outside world didn’t see or believe Nini reciprocated the love he accorded to her. Most people see it that he was just the only one pushing his interest forward.
Saga added that it was all about friendship and no boundary intrusion, because of the boyfriend, whom she had constantly reminded him about, that watches the show.
Saga answered, “Well, I did slow down, but it didn’t work. I did. The energy I gave to her, somehow, the world didn’t think she gave it back to me. But she gave it back to me, in terms of friendship.
“I never for once, asked her out on the show”. Ebuka interrupted, “I don’t think a lot of people ask people out on the show, to be honest”. And Saga continued, “Yeah, I didn’t cross any boundaries, that’s what I’m trying to say. She said a couple of days that her boyfriend is watching the show.”
Ebuka interrupted again saying, “Considering the personality we saw of Saga, and how he falls in love, and how he’s very protective and loosely possessive, if he (Saga) was the one watching his girl, do you think Saga would have been okay with it”? Saga replied, “I wouldn’t”. Ebuka said that’s what he was trying to establish.
