Big Brother Naija season 7 Level Up star, and reality television Housemate, Segun Daniel Olusemo, simply known as Sheggz has insisted that should he win the Big Brother Naija Level Up show, Nigerians wouldn’t allow the prize money to be given to him.
Sheggz said that reason Nigerians wouldn’t consider him as rightful winner of the show is because he’s already privileged, and shouldn’t go home with the money that belongs to a less privileged contestant.
“I want to win the money but I don’t plan getting to the final. I don’t think they’ll give me the money even if I deserve it. They’re not going to give it to me. I don’t think if Nigerians will agree”, Sheggz was quoted as saying.
Doyin concurred to Sheggz’s claim, and she said, “I don’t think so, but there are some sense to what you’re saying. Like the privileged people, Nigerians don’t really like them.
Sheggz continued, as he gave an instance where Mike Edwards of Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem season 4 show made it to the finale but couldn’t be given the opportunity by viewers to win the show.
He said, “Airreys, Mike or whatever his name is, he was actually married. And I think he was very successful by making money by himself, although I don’t know his family background.
“He was in the final. Everyone was saying Mike could have won, but he wasn’t a top contender. Mercy was 100 percent going to win”.
This conversation happened between Sheggz, Doyin, Bella and Adekunle in the living room where both of them talked about some of the past Housemates, especially the Pepper Dem edition.
