Big Brother Naija reality show ex-housemate, Diane Russet, has said she never expected the overwhelming level of love and support the people of her home state, Kaduna, gave her when she left the house after 93 days.
According to Diane, coming from a conservative background, and being the first ever female housemate from the north, she had thought her participation in the reality TV show would be met, at best with criticism and mild hostility from her people.
Sharing some of her experiences from the house and her reception outside the house with Channels TV, the Kaduna State indigene said: “The love I have received from my state has been the best.
The ebony skinned reality TV star, who was also one of the youngest Big Brother Naija housemates, said the experience in the house was amazing and she has also come home to receive overwhelming love from fans.
Speaking about her friendship with fellow housemate, Elozonam, she explained that both of them are great friends and for now are only looking forward to knowing each other better and working together.
It had been an intriguing and eventful 99 days, starting with 26 housemates, each serving their own dose of ‘pepper’ along the way.
Reacting to Mercy’s win, Diane who was one of her closest friends in the house, said she knew she always stood a great chance and she was very excited for her win.
According to her, “both Mercy and the first runner up, Mike, were deserving and either of them who won, would have been worthy of the price.”
On her future endeavors, she says she’s looking forward to shaking up the entertainment and fashion industry with her many talents.
